While all of you were already (probably) cuddled up in your beds and snoring like Jon, Texas A&M has reportedly (New York Times) informed the Big 12 that they are leaving the Big 12 Conference. And this just hours after receiving a letter from Beebe informing them of the conditions.
I am sure there will be more details come to light in the early hours today there stateside, but it will be interesting how all of this plays out now, and how fast it will all happen.
What is the price ($) to get out of jail (Big 12)? How will this impact the Big 12's deal with ESPN? Who has Beebe lined up to join the Big 12 to make it 10 again?
