  1. Watching the CU-AFA game was all I needed to see how the Buffs are going to do this year. No one wants to see a bad offense on a losing team like that. Systematic changes are needed at CU if the Buffs are to see successful football again. It sounds like CU's chancellor is retiring at year's end or something like that so there's hope for that but I have been hearing the same issues about CU before that chancellor assumed his position so I'm not too hopeful. I'm probably done as a CU fan at this point. Hope you all have a good life. And yes Bug was right about Karl.
  2. It could be worse for you as a CU fan this season.
  3. It's a criteria that both the Pac-12 and Big 12 base on potential expansion schools. This has been discussed on this board even at least since the day CU & Utah joined the conference. This was covered by that Frank The Tank blog that focused on realignment and told us to think more like presidents than athletic directors. Every Pac-12 school is Tier 1 and almost every Big 12 is Tier 1...I think two Big 12 schools even including the incoming ones are Tier 2 with a track to become Tier 1. All Big Ten schools are Tier 1, most ACC schools are, and believe it or not, most of the SEC schools are Tier 1. Again, presidents & chancellors and their board of regents are the ones who make decisions on conference affiliation not athletic directors. If you can't understand any of this, you are not as bright as you think you are because this criteria has been discussed on this board since at least 2011. It's pretty straight forward.
  4. Anyone read that Stewart Mandel piece in the Athletic? I'm too cheap to subscribe but I'm seeing that the PAC has more viewership numbers than the Big 12 since 2015 so at this point, I'm thinking the PAC remains intact sans the two LA schools. At the same time Mandel is one of those writers who appear to have an interest in keeping the PAC intact in addition to Wilner and Canzano. CU does have a slightly higher figure than Utah and games @Michigan, two games against Nebraska, and Texas A&M in Denver has helped CU's numbers. That's a little surprising since it appears that Utah should draw better than CU since Utah has no NFL team to compete against in-state like CU has with the Broncos. There is no doubt the upcoming Nebraska games are going to help CU's numbers in the coming years. As for SDSU, just invite them to the PAC already before the Big 12 thinks about doing that. I saw some stuff saying that Frenso would be the 12th school but I'm not buying it because I don't think the Big 12 would pick them up at this point because believe it or not, they do have almost similar standards as the PAC. Will it be UNLV? I don't think Boise State qualifies when it comes to the research rankings. It's starting to feel more likely that the PAC remains intact and the outcome I am hoping for is that the P12N is on ESPN+ and more ESPN exposure. If that happens, I will be happy with that outcome.
  5. I find it funny that current P12 fans are saying SDSU should expand their stadium after the majority of schools in the PAC have reduced capacity in their stadium through renovations or complete rebuilds. It seems to me that Utah is the only one that has increased capacity and OSU finally decided to finish the other half of their stadium. In reality, the conference would invite SDSU with the expectation that they'd expand their seating and that probably wouldn't be announced until after the new media rights deal is announced and annual numbers are known so the Aztecs can budget the stadium expansion around that. Especially after OSU & WSU went on spending sprees with the idea that the P12N would be printing money for them which didn't materialize and both ADs have ran in the red for awhile.
  6. Doesn’t look good for the PAC. That could mean the Mountain schools could be on the move soon but what do I know in this case?
  7. Speaking of AAU...it's basically the elite of the tier 1 research schools. CU obtained its AAU status after about 20 years in the Big 8 which had four such members at the time in Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, and yes even Nebraska at that time. I don't think Oklahoma is that far off but what's hindering them is state funding for higher ed. Nebraska got dropped from the AAU due to the location of its medical school or something. Even the Big 8 fans knew that Nebraska being part of the AAU was a joke into itself. CU's medical school isn't even in Boulder so Orange might be right that it might be an arbitrary body.
  8. PAC-9 sounds good to me. Four home and four away conference games. Even if the Big 8 was rad back then, you still had that uneven conference scheduling.
  9. His job is writing about the PAC...I'd be a dick if I had to start thinking about moving somewhere else because the conference might cease to exist.
  10. It won't be a mess if the PAC remains at 10 members for the time being. Just do round robin play and then top two duke it out in the CCG just like the Big 12 has been doing.
  11. https://www.buffzone.com/2022/07/09/rooney-patience-required-in-wait-for-possible-cu-buffs-conference-realignment/ Seems like there might not be any moves until next month at the earliest since Fox & ESPN hold 30 day exclusive negotiation rights. I’m cool with just going back to being the PAC-10 in this case if everyone was to stay pat.
