    This is the begining of the end for the BIG 12. If Texas leaves in the coming weeks, the conference will collapse considering that Texas tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will all be following.

        Good for Colorado, I'm happy for them. I just hope my Missouri Tigers are as lucky in their pursuit to get out of this **** conference.

            Some other nuggets from Castiglione:

            * The AD confirmed that the Southeastern Conference has shown interest in the Sooners.

            * OU has decided, because of the long history betwen the schools, that it plans to stick with Texas -- wherever that may be: "I think it would be a horrendous decision for OU and Texas to break up," Castiglione said. "We're going to stick together if it's at all possible."

                Looks like Nebraska may be gone despite the efforts of Kansas trying to keep them.

                    I wonder what the Big 12 commissioner has to say about all of this.

                    This was a decent move by the Pac-10. I have no idea how good CU's academics are but at least we got the Denver TV market cornered.

                      I think i heard on one of ESPN's shows the other day(so take it for what its worth) that CU is on some type of academic probation. It is based on some point system and they were the only BCS school to fail it.

                        They got docked scholarships for being under the APR limit. They weren't the only BCS school to fail it. Ole Miss, for one, also failed.

                          Air Force and BYU? I can understand BYU but why not go after Utah as well?

                              Colorado, will look odd in the Pac 10. Will the PAC 10 change names?
