I did a search for current populations of Weber County, Salt Lake County and Utah County. Those 3 counties encompass Ogden down to Provo. All the numbers added up to over 2 million, but they are old numbers from 2015. As for TV market, I just did a search for biggest TV markets in United States that is where it showed SLC as the #30 market. I'd still rather take Utah over Oregon and Washington to avoid the distance factor of traveling all the way out there. However if push came to shove, I'd probably bend on that as long as little brothers were not invited. The enigma is Stanford, they are a private school that acts like feCal. There is prestige in bring them but they would need to give up all their political BS to some extent. I think we all know that this would be a marriage of convince between two groups that are directly opposite of each other in political beliefs. But I think it can work if both sides leaves politics out and work for the better of the new conference.
