A&M Heading to SEC in 2012? Tech and Others to Pac-12?

85

Today brings us reports that ESPN has informed Texas Tech that the only way that ESPN will televise the TT/Texas game this season is on the Longhorn Network. As a result, apparently Tech is now pursuing membership in the Pac-12 conference, likely with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. And of course, A&M is now accelerating plans to move to the SEC (according to TexAgs.com), even though it puts this season at risk: "The Ags did not want any distractions during football season and definitely did not want to receive the 'officiating' that Nebraska got during their farewell tour of the Big 12 last year.

Haven't we heard this story before? You bet. Instant karma gonna get you...

You can make all the jokes you want about Guido and his brother working for Bill Byrne, and you can comment on the long-term stability of the Big 12, but what should stand out here is this: Dan Beebe blew a lot of smoke about bigger TV contracts and penalizing Nebraska and Colorado to benefit Texas, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. It’s about time someone called his bluff to make him show his cards. This isn’t about greed. This is about separating bullshit from reality.

Let Bylaws Be Bylaws

Some unfinished business relating to the departure of Nebraska and Colorado from the Big 12 is the financial consequence for the two schools as a result of leaving early. The Big 12 bylaws provide the contractual underpinnings of what has the potential to be an ugly battle over revenue dollars...
