Seriously - good luck to you Pac-10 guys. You're going to need it with Texas.


Agreed. They have a solid financial backing like USC. I think its going to get even worse when a few more join.

I can't believe all this stuff is happening.

Are we going to see this type of shuffle yearly from here out.

Just so we're clear, I wasn't speaking about competing on the field with Texas. Texas has a very Texas-centric mindset when it comes to what they want and how they want their conference run, to the point where they exclude the concerns of other conference members. As we saw with the SWC and now with the Big 12, that's not a successful way of thinking.

Got it. Never really paid attention to this stuff too much so I was not aware of Texas's antics. To me successful is having a conference that plays good football and gets good grades.

Man the Arizona schools are getting the shaft in this. They get handed over into a division with Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M(assuming they come), Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, and Colorado....that's going to be a rough road for either of the Arizona schools to ever make it through. Football wise it really this wont be much different for the former big dogs of the Big 12 other than a conference title game against an OG Pac 10 team. :-?
