Pac-10 Adds Colorado, The Super Conference Era Begins

First Super Conference: The Pac-10 looks poised to become the first of the 16-team Über conferences.  Colorado will officially join the league, leaving the Big 12.  They are the first of a raid expected to include Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma St.  So, essentially, it’s a merger between the Pac-10 and the valuable part of the Big-12.  The schools would then renegotiate the television deal and presumably make an insane amount of money.  They will also push for a second automatic bid for the BCS.  Expect the Big Ten and SEC to start scrambling for teams.  More pressure on Notre Dame?  Bidding war for Kansas basketball?  Predicting four 16-team conferences: Pac-10, Big Ten, SEC and an East Coast amalgam that will own college basketball.  Tradition is valuable, when that value is monetary.
