Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said the conference is not seeking any new teams and wants to keep the Pac-12 the way is it. Scott said...
quote:

"Our hope is that there is no expansions and all conferences that are at 12 stay at 12. That would be our vote,"..."We're very happy where we're at and we've got a lot to do over the next year." "We haven't spent one minute thinking about going further, that's not our desire,"..."It's when all this discussion started happening in the Big 12 and it seems like the SEC is going to go beyond 12 and teams started approaching, let's take a step back and look at the future -- if the landscape is going to change." "We think 12 is a good number and when we look at our peer conferences, they're at 12, too, so we think it's an evenly balanced, competitive landscape,"..."And with the new TV deal that we've got done, the new network we've got, we're thrilled with our position. We've pretty completely repositioned where the Pac-12 fits in the overall landscape and we've got some real work to do to make 12 work."

I dunno...the PAC-12 might really mean it. Not so much that they want to stay at 12, but the schools that take them to 16 aren't really there. They don't want Boise, UNLV, Nevada, etc. for academic reasons. Stanford and Cal will veto Baylor, TCU, SMU, or BYU because they're religious institutions. New Mexico and NMSU suck at football. Oklahoma is attached to Okie Light and requires more travel than it's worth. The sips are going to bring the baggage of the Longhorn Network and their constant demands for a disproportionate share of conference revenue.

I think the SEC was saying the same thing a month ago, when A&M first starting flirting with the idea of leaving...this is all just lip service...
