Pac 12 looking to play a game in China

Pete Thamel tweeted this earlier, and I clicked the link with subject in mind, and since I am not a subscriber, I can't link the article the article. Anyway, the idea is to have Stanford and Notre Dame play a game in 2013 in China. However, I do think that this sort of thing is inevitable and that the search for more money will never cease. Since the SEC is an east coast based league, China doesn't make sense for us, but perhaps playing a kick off classic in London or a few other European cities would make sense for us, and maybe the Big Ten. My thought, is that each league would annually have a team start the season in a neutral site international venue. In our case, with 14 squads as things are currently situated, that would mean that every 13 years you would play in Europe to open the season. Additionally, one of the primary driving forces for the Pac 12 is that they are wanting to put the future PAC 12 network in China and east Asia. Considering that the Big Ten Network is sure to want to follow suit in international markets, and that an SEC network is inevitable, wanting to have them in Europe makes the most sense for both of us. Normally, when it comes to Pac 12 football matters, they aren't a group that I hold in high regard; however, in this case, I think they are on to an idea that is innovative. That said, I am but one man, but would be curious to hear everyone else's opinion on the matter.
