In a bombshell development that could bring a halt to seismic changes in college realignment, sources tell Orangebloods.com Texas is at the table with the 10 remaining Big 12 schools working on a TV deal put forth by commissioner Dan Beebe that would hold the conference together.
We’ll have to recruit two schools to replace Nebraska and Colorado, or else eliminate the conference championship game.
Boise State and BYU would be the most likely and most palatable.
As a Texas fan, I personally would rather see a combination with the Pac10. And Dan Beebe has been an abysmal commissioner.
I agree....bring TCU and SMU into the league and they can rename it the SWC....
Boise State is joining the MWC. And with all A&M’s complaints about travel, I doubt they want to play in Boise.
Boise agreed to merge w/the MWC last week....TCU and SMU would be huge captures....
Texas needs to leave the Have Nots behind in the Big 12 and mover on to the PAC 10.
TCU wasn’t invited originally, and they are still upset about it, so they probably won’t be joining. And SMU brings nothing to the table.
I would pick TCU.
Of course after spanking Texas in the Super Regional this weekend, I don’t think the Texas baseball team would want that.
For every story out there saying the Big 12 can be saved, there are two or three saying that the Big 12 is dead and the Texas teams will be leaving over the course of the week. I’m afraid I tend towards the later.
Screw t.u.. On to the SEC.
Utah might work out in the Big 12 too.
You must be kidding.
SMU brings nothing to the table??
ever hear of June Jones????
Boise State just announced they're switching to the Mountain West.
Enjoy mediocrity in the SEC.
I hear they’re going to merge with the Big 10, forming a new conference called the “Awesome 22.”
forget the fact its’ a Texas school located in Dallas- ever hear of June Jones???
SMU would be more credible than Baylor instantly.....
SMU bears watching this year. I have them as a sleeper, with June Jones’ third year, and one of the nation’s most exciting young quarterbacks in Kyle Padron.
