The PAC is in a serious lurch, a lot of it for reasons beyond their control.
My best guess is that Yormark is eyeing an all-out takeover of the conference with security guarantees to member schools that the PAC can’t offer right now.
I see Yormark working on the first “super conference”, that would operate NFL style. He would allow the PAC to be its own “conference”, the Big 12 to be its own, but there would be crossover games and a championship, held at Jerry world, alternating with the Rose Bowl.
Whichever PAC members choose to go their own way are welcome to do so.
Get your popcorn ready.
