Utah was invited after the Pac-16 concept fell apart. In their place would have been Texas A&M most likely. If you recall at that time the Mountain West looked like they might very well score Big 12 leftovers like Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, while keeping Utah. But once the Pac-16 deal fell apart, Utah accepted an invitiation to the Pac-12, the MWC lost out on getting those Big 12 teams, and TCU and BYU both left. So Ben's Pac-16 team lineup isn't really accurate.

Meh......They would be better off just recording cpu vs cpu games in various weather settings.

right... That's why there was a 50+ page thread about the lack of dreadlocks in NCAA 11.

Is there no way to actually change the conference name?
 
# 6 blkrptnt819 @ 06/14/11 05:54 PM
Nope, not this year.

No, I think the NCAA wouldn't let EA have the option of changing the actual conference names, just division names.

Sorry...but Texas A&M was never even close to considering a PAC 16. A&M wants absolutely nothing to do with Texas and will not join another conference with them in it. They will only leave the Big 12 when the SEC comes calling.

Yeah the Big 12 is unraveling at the seams. Texas teams playing in a west coast conference just makes no sense to me personally. I wouldn't be surprised to see Texas take that spot in the SEC just so that A&M doesn't get it. As these Texas teams begin to go their seperate ways, Texas is going to want to end up being the obvious top dog. If Texas A&M goes to the SEC and Texas ends up in either the PAC or longshot B1G then they suddenly find A&M much more of a competitor.

I would still love to see Texas and Oklahoma end up in the SEC West.

OK St. and A&M in SEC woulda been interesting to be honest.
 
# 16 He1nousOne1 @ 06/14/11 11:53 PM
SEC West already has enough mediocre teams that are cannon fodder for Alabama, LSU and now possibly Auburn although I am not yet a believer in Auburn becoming a perennial power house. Texas and Oklahoma could actually challenge the West hierarchy. Okla St and A&M will simply be two more stepping stones for Bama and LSU and maybe not even be in the upper half of the West.

I agree utahman, the signs are there that the major conferences have all probably worked out scenario's towards that future. I would compare such to the NFL draft. Everyone has a plan on how to get to where they want to get but once the picks start happening you have to adjust and adapt in order to end in the best possible position with all things considered.

With that in mind I tend to think some Institutions would speak of certain moves publicly in order to possibly entice others or even to negotiate better terms with a different Suitor.

For example, if I was Texas I would never want to really move to the Pac due to having to sell the idea of possibly playing six or more games on the west coast each year. That is a two hour time difference and that is a pain in the *** for players to get used to. If you are a top recruit in Texas and you are comparing having to do that with Texas or perhaps instead going over to Texas A&M if you can handle that lifestyle so that you can play games closer to home against top programs in neighboring states such as Arkansas and LSU. With that in mind I think Texas would be shooting themselves in the foot to go to the PAC10.

I find it to likely just be something talked about so they are better off in possible future negotiations with the SEC or even the B1G. There is some chatter about Independent status but in a FBS moving towards Super Conference powers, Independent status is an even worse idea then it is already. Just look at Notre Dame and all their TV contracts and Prestige. How is that working out for them?

Nah, Texas would either go SEC for the rivalry games and the top competition in order to make it to the NC or to move to the B1G in order to remain in the same time zone while at the same time definately being in the top dogs of the conference and easily finding themselves annually in the championship chase. That chase is not a guarantee in the PAC and all that western travel could severely hamper their recruiting in years to come.

I just had to throw this in because I just saw it on twitter, but Seattle University is joining the WAC as a non football school, that just blows my mind
