Big 12 is not going anywhere!!!

Looks like the Big 12's remaining teams are not going anywhere.
Texas stays in the Big 12.
10 Team Big 12.

No Big 12 Championship game anymore. That sucks.

Hopefully in the near future they can add 2 good teams back make it a 12 team Big 12 again.

While there were many different variables in each of the schools decisions to go here or there, sounds to me like A&M called Texas' bluff or A&M bluffed and Texas Folded (depending on how you look at it).

This whole thing has been about Texas wanting more TV money. And in Texas' arrogance (rightfully so, they do carry this conference), they just assumed that A&M, Tech, OU, and OsU would follow them to the Pac-10.

The first meeting between any schools was made by Texas and A&M exclusively. I truly believed that A&M said "No, we are not going to the Pac-10 with all that traveling west." And then they raised their bet by threatening to go to the SEC because they knew there was no way Texas would go to the SEC.

Even though this whole thing was about money, the big cats at Texas didn't want to be known as "the guy that broke up Texas and Texas A&M." Doing so would be a career breaker. That and if A&M went to the SEC, that would open up a whole can of worms with recruiting because it would open the state of Texas wide open for SEC schools which historically don't recruit well here.

So Texas pushed the Big XII pres. to make this deal where they get all that they wanted from the Pac-10 plus make Mack Brown happy by doing away with the Conference Championship game.

It all came down to money. Thats all it was ever about. A&M couldnt get the kind of money in the SEC that they are now getting with Texas leading this thing to getting themselves, A&M , and Oklahoma over 20 million a year.

As usual everyone is just riding on Texas coat heels as they always do. lol

I don't think anyone is ever going to go Independent again. It's starting to come up and bite Notre Dame in the ass now that they suck.

Old school Aggies put the hammer down on UT's plans. If the Board of Regents had not forced aTm to stay out of California and look East, the PAC16 would've been finalized Friday. UT is getting their own network and more money now that this has all played out. Wow.

Agreed.
Younger Aggies seem to be furious over not going into the SEC. At least the few I know are.....
