This obviously means that Nebraska is going Big 10.

Wild card is Texas to Pac or Big 10. 

Kansas, Kansas St., and Iowa St. just peed a little....

I certainly hope so - the suspense is killing me.




Obviously one of these is not like the other.  That being said there is probably a 25% chance at best that it plays out one of the two ways above.

The CIC boost that accompanies the Big 10, plus likely equal or great money from BTN seems to me like an obvious choice.  The fact that legislators want to step into this whole process probably throws a twist in things though, and the fact that Texas is a control freak probably makes the Pac10 more likely.

second domino falls...

next up Texas/TexasA&M

then a grab bag of Mizzou, Kansas, Rutgers, Syracuse, Maryland

and at the end ND will decide if it wants to join modern college football and join the Big 10 or become irrelevant.

Don't know about CO v NE, but I would not be surprised to see the OK v NE back on the schedule every year. It was killed by TX and B12, but it could easily be revived and would be a ratings bonanza for both of those teams new conferences.

I think UConn is a much more attractive option in the NYC market than Rutgers.  I don't know why their name has been dropped from the discussion recently

Academic research is the entire play with regards to academics. As someone in academic research, really nobody cares about undergraduate education. It may sound mean, but undergrads are just a method to pay the bills and the salaries of the faculty and adminstrators. I don't like it (the main reason I am looking at going towards liberal arts institutions as opposed to research universities after I defend my thesis).

I've heard from some people that this guy actually has a legitimate connection to the Big Ten office and that he almost always brings in true information. Of course, that could all be BS, but I figured I'd just put it out there anyways.

At any rate, if this is true, then let the Big Ten-Pac 10 battle for Texas commence.

The good news with the Buffs leaving means that the Pac 10 or Texas and A&M said screw the Texas State Legislature and said we are going forward without Baylor. This could help the Big Ten in pulling Texas as now it appears that they will not be controled by politics and be brought down by others religious beliefs or terrible academics (Tech).

I graduated from CU and still live in Boulder, I like the move but I am concerned about losing our rivalries with CSU and Nebraska.  I couldnt imagine us not playing CSU first game of the year
