An SEC super conference with Texas and OU will create some great matchups but is pretty bad for cfb as a whole imo. College football will become largely irrelevant west of Austin unless USC returns to prominence...and that will be nearly impossible with so much exposure and $$$$$ flowing to the SEC. 

Not all of the top recruits will want to go to college in the Southeast. There will still be plenty of good players who want to play in the Pac.

Tweeted out by a Sooner fan this afternoon: Horns and Aggies blame each other for their rivalry staying dead to this day, but I gotta say, Texas trying to join the SEC and Aggie panicking about i

I just don’t believe that.

The only reason the PAC is relevant now is because the NIL has allowed Phil Knight/Oregon to stock his team. USC, Oregon, probably UCLA are the takes from that conference if the The Disney League is firmed. Is there enough market for Seattle and the Washington Huskies to join?

college football needs to have USC and Oregon to be good , Ohio st and Michigan are this is a regional sport. The Northeast provides little help .  I don’t understand why that is because they’re passionate in the NFL.  I suppose history plays a part.

When is the last time Zero U won the only trophy that matters? My buddies that are OU fans could care less about Big 12 championships, they want to beat Texas every year and beat Bama in the NC. 

Me too. We accomplish half of those routinely. 
If i was a whorn lover I’d avoid that conference champ conversation as well.

Oregon has some great fans but they are still not "the brand" that USC is. Overall the B10 is in pretty good shape with Ohio St, Penn St and Michigan. When Tx and OU leave the Big 12 that conference is dead and gone. Televised B12 games involving Tx or OU average over 3 million viewers...televised B12 games not involving Tx or OU average 900,000...so tv revenue will dry up if the B12 tries to survive with the remaining schools. Bringing in a BYU or Cincinnati will not change that.

Yeah...I expect Tx and Ou to be playing in the sec in 2022. Ou probably goes 9-3 or maybe 10-2...Texas more like 6-6...unless Sark turns out to be better than I expect. One thing is for sure...Texas will not run the show in the sec like they are used to doing in the B12.

You can’t replace it but byu and UCf are the best replacements add Memphis and cinci if need be. I said south Florida and Boise so the other two have a viable partner. You will never match the sec but at least it would be viable.  You could also merge the American with the Big 12 plus service academies as well.

Cali produces a lot of talent and some of those kids will stay close to home...but as the revenue gap between the SEC and Pac12 widens even more so will the quality of the facilities (not to mention the exposure) and it will be harder and harder to keep the very top players from leaving the west coast.

Texas has taken some lumps, but man...The dragging of ESPN is just beginning. Those dudes have been pulling some crazy illuminati stuff behind the scenes

Good.

By September the state of California will have football shutdown again.  The west coast teams won’t have many games to play

Last time the Horns got to the CCG the Big12 refs made sure OU got a spot in the playoffs.  Riley should’ve sent the crew a thank you card.  It was extremely obvious

Yeeeahhh the PAC is a weird case. USC had some stellar teams in the early 00s and..... the 60s/70s. Oregon was never great but played above their pay grade for a few years with Chip Kelly. Outside of that, they really haven't done much over the years. I guess UCLA had a few strong teams in there somewhere. 

BYU would probably try to go West with the PAC if they're smart. They'll have reasonable success and will get the big conference dollars. 

The Big 12 is donezo. They may join some CUSA teams to make another conference, but it won't be a power conference. 

Maaaan, think about the new SEC! And the baseball...

This was going to be my point. The West Coast teams, particularly the California teams, are going to have a hard time progressing when their state is consistently shutting down, or as a recruit you have to provide proof of vaccination or take a covid test just to go to a restaurant.

Lol what was USC's record this year? 4-1? 

Just awful. Oh well. They get what they elect.

Oregon is pretty liberal as well, they may shut down too

For a second, I forgot the PAC played last year... Lol

Hard to make the playoff or even be considered when you cant even play half of your games. What recruit wants that?

I could see them and Washington shutting down. But definitely California. Newsome is a nutjob

Some place called Shake Shack will not let you enter their store without showing proof of vaccination

Lsu seems to be your rival. A&M and Texas to a lesser extent. Mizzou has the potential for it. 

Mizzou only rivals are Kansas and Illinois. 🙄

I could possibly see most of the remainder of the B12 -WV merge with the PAC ..... maybe add Boise St as well

Really only in the metro areas. The rural areas are pretty much center-right libertarians.

Yep...Big 12 is finished...at least as a major conf. No disrespect meant towards the remaining members but even if they bring in new members they will still not be a major player in cfb. I feel bad for Gary Patterson at TCU...dude is one of the best coaches in the sport and he has owned Texas.
