Brings up two questions
1. Why would SMU want to be in the PAC
To escape the AAC maybe, but how this benefits SMU is a mystery
Will cost more and will probably decrease attendance
Prestige I guess for those that still think the old P5 designation is a thing
2. Why do any NT fans care
I would like a local game, however I don't have much interest in playing SMU anymore
With the money their supporters are willing to pay players, SMU should dominate the old G5 tier of teams. I can't think of any Texas or area team that can compete long term with that.
