Pac-10 joins Big-10 in expansion talks

Watch out Mountain West Conference and Western Athletic Conference... here comes the Pac 10 with expansion talk.

Leading teams to consider: BYU, Utah, Colorado, Colorado State, Boise State.
Others in the running: San Diego State, Fresno State, Hawaii, and TCU.

Problems with Boise State, Fresno State, and TCU? (1) All provide no substantive increase in market share, they are in the middle of nowhere and (2) other than football, they lack significant broad-based success in their athletics programs.

Add this to the Big Ten's expansion talks and potential theft of Pittsburgh from the Big Least and Missouri from the Big 12, and watch the dominoes fall from coast to coast as other institutions jockey for position in the game of Big Time Football Conference Musical Chairs... Looks like the dominoes may fall in spring of 2011 or 2012, sports fans.
