Pac-12: Was the decision not to expand now the right one? [Poll]

September 21, 2011 |  9:31 am


The Pacific 12 Conference announced Tuesday night that it would not expand but instead remain with 12 teams, ending speculation that the Pac-12 might soon become the Pac-16 or something of that nature.

The announcement comes at a time of a vastly changing college landscape, where super-conferences appear to be forming and schools such as Texas and Oklahoma had openly expressed interest in leaving the Big 12 Conference for the Pac-12.

"After careful review we have determined that it is in the best interests of our member institutions, student-athletes and fans to remain a 12-team conference," Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement.

Do you agree with the Pac-12's decision to remain a 12-school league Vote in the poll, then leave a comment explaining why you voted the way you did.
