      Oklahoma is headed to the Pac 10

      Once Texas makes their announcement, Texas Tech, OU and OSU will make theirs.

      Texas A&M is on a 72 hour deadline to make their decision.

          That could be one giant step towards moving ND to the Big Ten

            gonna have to have a major renaming session for all these conferences pretty soon.

            I have a feeling Notre Dame is Big Ten bound in only a matter of time. I have no idea who the 3rd new team they would add would be. Syracuse, Rutgers, and Pitt don't exactly have the luster of Notre Dame or Nebraska, but the former two would tap that New York market.

              I think Notre Dame will end up going to the Big Ten when it's all said and done.

                I heard the BTN is gonna show Nebraska games starting this year even though they'll still be a Big 12 team for another year or so before they actually join.

                    It does. The reason is money. The Big 12 makes about 10 million dollars less a year on football than the Big Ten/Pac-10/SEC will. Since the Big Ten Network finally made the money and showed it can succeed, Pac-10 about to do the same, it is the time for change.

                      What does another good basketball program do for the Big East? Not very much. They already have 16 teams and most any of them not named DePaul is competitive so they are looking at 6+ teams in the tournament every year anyway.

                      Football drives the bus. That's just how it is.
                      Professionally, no doubt about it but the Big East probably wouldn't mind bringing in a basketball team maybe if Rutgers leaves.. Big 10 country where you are I am guessing is all about football. East coast colleges is primarily focused on basketball imo.

                        Apparently the Big 12 (Now 10) is being told that they are going to make more money on their new TV Deal starting in 2011 or 2012, can't tell which one they mean. And that sense they have 2 teams less to share money with they will all be making even more than all the schools in the Pac 10 (now 11)

                        The Big 10 (now 12) isn't looking to invite any more of the former Big 12 members

                        Thanks to bonekrusher for the sig

                          Baylor, UT, TAMU, and Texas Tech didn't join the Big 12 (Big 8 at the time) until '96.

                            I wonder if the SEC would be interested in Missouri since the Big Ten and PAC 10 don't seem to be.

                              Seriously, where does Kansas go? The Mountain West???

                              Kansas' Basketball program is too good for the MWC... lol. The PAC10 doesn't seem interested and neither does the Big 10. The SEC makes no sense. Neither does the Big East or ACC.
                              **** her in da *****!

                                Yea, Kansas' basketball team is too good for the MWC but football is where the money is at so they're not really appealing to the PAC 10 or the Big 10. It's a shame but that's the politics of college sports.
