Agree, but adding CSU does seriously increase Denver & Colorado TV's

... and IMHO it accomplishes what the old P10 instinctively understood about adding new Teams/States/Markets >>> ya gotta add the State school as well as the non-State (usually flagship) school within each new Market/State if the conference decides to enter... in order to TOTALLY DOMINATE that State with sports-talk about that:
#1 - nasty and blood-boiling in-state Rivalry itself, within that State of Colo.
#2 - each school's competitions/games & competitive position within the P12 and relative to P12 teams, thus causing 90% of the ENTIRE STATE to talk entirely about THE P12 CONFERENCE (about 80% P12 emersion rate) vs. today talking about the SEC/B12/MWC/B10/ACC 60% ... and only 40% about the P12, in the state of Colo.
#3 - in order to elevate BOTH Colo Universities to a National Level of prominence, thus rising the entire state of Colo sports, as well as their competitive Rivalry.
#4 - UCB & UU's rivalry is nada on any regional or national radars.

IMHO, by adding CSU or BYU to the P12, each respective State would double the Emersion rate for the P12 and it's sports... among the entire population of that state.

I grew up in Okla and lived in ATx the past 25 yrs, and I know and understand this market-place phenom thoroughly via experiencing the State-Wide market dynamics of OU-Neb, and OU v OSU, and OU v UT when they were in separate conferences; then when UT joined the B12... this created exponentially more multi-pronged discussion including OU-OSU-UT-NU (as well as discussions re TAM, Baylor, TT).

Interestingly after NU left, the level of B12 Fball emersion & discussions in both Okla & Tx did NOT fall off as much as was expected! TAM had a far greater effect, mainly due to Manzele's impact at TAM on the SEC.
