    In order to play a championship game, the PAC-10 would have to have 12 teams in football, I think.

    Who would be logical additions to the PAC-10, considering football and the many other sports?

    That's a good question. I've read about Utah and/or BYU. Salt Lake City is a decent sized market and BYU has a loyal following. Colorado might seem like a natural, but I doubt it will leave the big 12, so maybe Colorado State.

    Some have talked about San Diego State or Fresno State, but others doubt that Berkeley and UCLA want to give any prestige to those schools, but SDSU would bring in San Diego. UNLV has been mentioned as well.

    One wild scenario has Texas joining the Pac Ten and leaving behind smaller schools like Texas Tech, Baylor, Nebraska, and the Kansas schools since those plains states have smaller markets. You can fly easily from Austin to the West Coast and with their huge endowment and increased revenue with the pac ten the expense might not be that bad. Texas in some ways has more in common with the big research schools of the West Coast than other schools of the big 12.

    I think the most likely are Utah and Colorado State.

    I was thinking about it and of all the teams in the Pac-10 so far every one of them is in a state that is one the Pacific. So the majority of teams that we've mentioned wouldn't be allowed in if they kept this rule. Utah makes the most sense though, they've got a football program on the rise and their basketball team is always decent. Not sure who a 2nd team would be.

    Ok, maybe rule was the wrong word. Maybe 'tradition' would've been a better word.

    I think they should stick to their trend and add 2 more high school teams.
