BYU would make sense. San Diego State?
That depends on the sense you think territorial commonality makes. The BHM wouldn't expand entirely within its existing footprint which is one reason BHM teams get about 10 million dollars more from tv rights then PAWCP teams. I could see one of the Texas teams, maybe Okie State though - if they can get past the 2 hour time zone difference that starts the PAWCP games at, what, 9 or 10 Central Time?

I also doubt USC and UCLA want to elevate a recruiting rival in Southern California.
The Pac12 had a chance to buck up its marketing value several years ago when it was on the verge of an agreement with the B1G to have each league team schedule one non-conference game every year between the two leagues.
Southern Cal nixed the deal.
They should revisit the idea.

Actually, if I read the ND/ACC agreement right, if ND decides to go conference it has to pick the ACC up to 2036?
Notre Dameís commitment to the ACC through 2036 does not include football.

Ratings are in and were somewhat down, attributed to the lack of competitiveness in the game.
Somewhat down?
Worst TV ratings since 1969
Least watched since 2006.

surprised there are so many Chief fans among the G-Men-NFC  loyalists

I just wanted to see a good game.

But the refs destroyed that.

Examples abound.

Among the worst SBs ever.


TB isnt to blame but the game should have been closer.

Agree. This game will be remembered for the refs.
By objective football fans.

It was bad - no doubt

What the fuck were you watching.?
Kansas City score 9 measley points.
No touchdowns
Thatís bad offense
Or better defense.
Put on some big boy pants and pay homage to the better team.

In another week or so Brady and Trump(plus families) can celebrate privately and Nancy Armour can go fuck herself.

Who is the only NFL Quarterback to start a Super Bowl on teams from both the NFC and the AFC?
He went 1-1.

Congratulations to Charles Woodson for his election  to the pro football Hall of Fame.
He becomes just the tenth Heisman Trophy winner in the Pro Hall.
He is one of the best football players I ever saw in person, albeit only as a college player.

Pretty clear the FIX WAS IN on that one.
The Packers give up a half-the-field de facto Hail Mary at the end of the first half. Pack  Coach LeFleur admits he had an off-day on key calls like an unneeded 2 point conversion and then passing on a fourth down play to
potentially  tie the game( after Rodgers passed on an open field run to the end zone?
Tampa Bay led the entire game and the Packers will have a year of nightmares remembering their futility of stopping the Buccaneers on third and long.

Fun game to watch, though.

Cleaning up loose ends regarding the size of Brad Van Pelt.

From the listing of Van Pelt in the College Football Hall of Fame:

Brad Van Pelt was a two-time All-America, unanimous in 1972. That year he won the Maxwell trophy as the nation's best player. This was the first time a defensive back won the award. Also in 1972, he was named Chevrolet Defensive Player of the Year and Columbus Touchdown Club Defensive Player of the Year. In his career, he had 14 interceptions. He returned two of them for touchdowns. Brad was one of college football's largest players at his position, as such he was also extremely valuable in run support and often shifted into a linebacker.

His physical stats at MSU, according to the Hall of Fame, were
235 lbs

Urban Meyer to coach Jacksonville.
When was the last time a big time career college coach was a success in the pros? Carroll was a successful college coach at USC, but he had a couple head coach gigs in the pros first. Harbaugh? He had coached for only 7 years.
Successful College coaches in the NFL?

Paul Brown
Jimmy Johnson
Barry Switzer
Don Coryell
Bill Walsh
Tom Coughlin
Pete Carroll

Itís not the ďpointĒ  you supposedly made. Itís that you stole someoneís words to make it.
I suggest you choose ignore.

Iím glad you admit it. You used the language of someone else right down to the ďcoronavirus doomsayers slammedĒ and passed it off as original writing. Textbook plagiarism. And really lazy.
Except, of course, I made that point months ago.

Admit what?
My posts stand as posted.
If you want to argue the issues fine.
If not use the ignore feature.

Passing otherís material off as your own is the definition of plagiarism. I understand it well. For Godís sake how hard is it to cite your source?
A fact is a fact. It canít be plagiarized but it can be challenged.

You plagiarize if you use the original ideas of others and give the impression someone else's work is yours.
