Pac-10 expansion could change BCS landscape.

The Pac-10 may be serious about expansion. Serious as in it won't happen anytime soon, but possible before the conference's TV contract expires in 2012. At least that's the impression Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott gave in a conference call Tuesday. This could result in big changes for college football beyond the West Coast.
Getting in the Pac-10 won't be easy, however. Scott said potential member schools would have to work "academically and culturally'' in the Pac-10. Translation: [BLEEP], you Boise St.
EDSBS gave the obvious choices for new Pac-10 schools in Utah and Colorado, and it's hard to argue with those choices. The trick here is how much the FBS landscape would alter as a result of the Pac-10 raiding a Big 12 school. Which school would the Big-12 replace Colorado with? It's doubtful the conference would try to raid the SEC, and the Big East doesn't provide much that would be really appetizing. TCU would fit more into the Big 12 geographically, but wouldn't do much for market expansion. Which leaves either BYU or Boise St. as possible replacements. Boise St. might be the bigger name, BCS buster-wise, but BYU might have the market advantage.
Where would this leave Boise St.? Left out in the cold. It would probably cripple the Mountain West. The best thing for both would be to band together and leave the WAC behind.
Pac-10 expansion could possibly bring big changes into the FBS. Potential BCS-busters could end up being brought into the BCS fold, but somebody would still be left in the wilderness. In all probability that would be Boise St. And the BCS landscape would still have a gaping hole in it.
