Then I'd rather stay irrelevant, and keep the charm the Pac 10 had. I don't want Texas teams and the ESPN hype train ruining what I enjoyed about my conference.
I feel the same way, but from the Texas perspective. It sucks, but i get it. We're going to lose pretty much all our traditional rivals. You have nothing to worry about, all the Cali teams will be grouped in one division and the traditions will continue. It will basically be the same pac10, then a champ game for you.
Meanwhile the other side will be Texas, OU, and likely the AZ teams and whoever else. I can't beleive a nothing program like A&M caused this because they have a 100 year inferiority complex. Maybe we get a playoff, but it sucks that the teams I grew up hating won't matter a lick to my son and he'll have to give a s**t about west coast teams he'll likely never go see play.
