Did you read the article that was posted? The whole thing is about USC wanting out of the Pac. If they want out, as does the Arkansas schools and possibly Utah, you have to take them. USC Texas and Oklahoma can form the bases of a conference that would rival the SEC and the B1G as the best conference in the country. We don't have to add any Californication state schools thus avoiding all their crappy politics. I'm on the fence about Stanford because they are tied to the hip with Berkley, but schools like Arizona and ASU, Utah, BYU would be good fits to a new conference that gets rid of many of the anchors that have been weighing us down.
