Now it's the Pac 10's turn to contemplate expansion

Combined with the Big 10's contemplation of expansion, things are gearing up for another round of conference realignment within the next year or two. Questions: (1) Is it a safe assumption that, if the Pac 10 were to expand, it would be to 12, and not to 11, teams? (2) Given that the Pac 10 doesn't have a Big 10/Notre Dame most obvious expansion target equivalent, who could be expansion targets? Utah and BYU? Boise State? (3) Do these rumblings from the Pac 10 spur the Mountain West to invite Boise State, Fresno State and one other WAC team (Nevada) sooner rather than later to join its conference to strengthen the case of being a automatic bid conference for the BCS (and to protect its flank the best it can against teams being poached by the Pac 10)? (4) Would the Pac 10 contemplate going for the home run by raiding the Big XII for two members (presumably Texas and Colorado)? And if invited, what would be in it for either team to move (absent any other Big XII poaching by the Big 10)?
