John Kelso of the Austin American-Statesman has a geographical issue with the proposed Pac-16:
[T]he Pac-10 is talking about starting a superconference, with the eight West Coast teams in one division, and Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Colorado, Arizona and Arizona State in the other division.
Doesn’t management have a map in the Pac-10 office kicking around somewhere? Look it up. Pac stands for Pacific, as in that great big ocean out west of here. Trust me. Surf’s not up in College Station unless you’re talking about the detergent.
Should we break it to him that the Round Rock Express, one county north of Austin, plays Triple-A baseball in the, um, Pacific Coast League?
