    Barta: B1G pact with Pac-12 still on track

    Football: Iowa AD said B1G pact with Pac-12 remains on track | KCRG-TV9 | Cedar Rapids, Iowa News, Sports, and Weather | Hawkeyes

    From article:

    IOWA CITY — Days after a report declared waning interest for a Big Ten-Pac-12 annual challenge, Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta said the collaboration remains on track between the leagues.

    “I think it’s still a very strong possibility,” Barta told The Gazette. “There’s been a lot of discussions about how to implement it. We knew that when we agreed to do it back in December, we knew there was a lot of work to do to finalize all the details. There’s been a lot of discussion about the details.”

    I would rather have the extra conference game.

    I was wondering the same thing. I hadn't heard anything saying the sides were backing away.

    In the linked article is says this "Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News cited multiple sources in a report Tuesday writing “that several Pac-12 schools are … how should we say it? … less than enthusiastic about the partnership.”

    I'm guessing that was the report.

    Yes, it was the Wilner report that some PAC schools were complaining. The PAC has also been complaining about a 9 game conference slate, and they don't like having a 10th tough game. When a lot of D-I plays 8 conference games and an easy OOC schedule, I can see why they find 10 real games difficult.

    I would guess that we don't see 12 PAC-B10 games every year, but something like 9.

    A nine game conference schedule is the dumbest thing ever.
    Purposely unbalancing schedules by tilting the single biggest factor in determining games (home field) is beyond stupid, its outright negligence on a commissioner's part.
