Pac-10 Might Be Texas Free After Rumors of Big 12 Staying Together With 10 Teams

bumped from fan posts by Bob_Bell

Your thoughts?


The reference is to today's news that Texas appears (FOR NOW) to have finagled its way into controlling the Big12-2, by sharing the big bucks with A&M and OU, but not the others. So, in other words, the "Little 10" would be a trainwreck dominated by UT, heading towards disaster, because of the unequal treatment of the "little guys" by the big 3 in the South. Some are wondering if this was UT's goal all along, but needed Nebraska to jump off the train so it could happen.... 

Note that this appears to have been Texas' ploy hatched over the weekend to placate the Aggies, and thereby keep them (as always) under UT's domination. Lots of sad folks in Aggieland if this proves to be the outcome, for it seems the overwhelming majority of Aggies wanted to be in the SEC instead of with UT's "sips" (i.e., "tea-sippers"). 

For CU fans, of course, this would be a great thing, getting to join a Pac12, because with that comes all the actual conference road games and hosted games with Pac10 schools (plus likely Utah), instead of being relegated to a dustbowl pseudo-conference with the Arizona schools, TTU, UT, A&M, OU, and OSU.... 

However, will the Pac12 be content to stay at 12? As a fan, I hope so. 

I wonder how much money CU was told to expect in a Pac16, and if it factored Pac12 finances into its plans? I hope it can afford the better-for-fans Pac12, and be able to compete in it.
