Why move?


Sorry to bombard your blog, just a thought.  Why is the stronger half of the Big 12 looking to move anyway?  I believe the Big 12 upper tier is stronger than the Pac 12 upper tier and the bottom half is probably a wash.  In other words, the Big 12 is probably a stronger overall league.  The Pac 12 is more attractive just because there are more teams there already?  A move to the Pac 12 magically irons out TV contract disputes?  More is not necessarily better.  TV contract disputes can be resolved without moving.  If anything, the Big 12 should keep its superior conference together and try to make IT the superconference.  Pac 12 execs are praying the Big 12 will bail them out in superconference formation.  If OU/OSU/Texas/TTech move, they're instantly 4 of the top 6 or 7 teams in the Pac.  The Pac is isolated in the west, they have no more quality teams to add.  Regionally, if the Big 12 sticks together and slowly builds, I believe they will have the upper hand.  So, what to do?  One team in all sports could be added, say Houston, or even make a pitch to West Virginia or TCU.  That takes the conference to a solid 10.  Then consider adding football only schools like BYU and Boise State.  That is a legit Big 12, far better than the Pac.  Granted, TV contracts would have to be worked out, but in my opinion more time should be spent on trying to figure that out instead of how to make a mediocre Pac 12 stronger by raiding a better Big 12.  Just a thought.
