All of those other teams I mentioned have metro areas double, triple, or much more than the size of Portland. Brand recognition is insignificant - Boise State has blue turf brand recognition just like Oregon's flashy uniforms - no networks are pinning for them. We will see what happens; I just don't think UofO with a significantly smaller metro area than 6 other PAC schools will be a high target. California schools will be target #1 and #2; then Arizona schools. UW will be much higher than UofO, yes as well as Colorado because of Denver. Maybe the Ducks sneak in with another team, but they aren't a top target of what is left in this pathetic Pac12 er Pac10 or whatever conference. OSU and WSU are totally screwed if the conference breaks up, no doubt about it, they have even far less appeal than the insignificant Ducks.
