ESPN: Texas and the New Big 12

With the departure of Nebraska and Colorado, the Big 12 is making plans to play a nine-game round-robin schedule and forego a conference championship game. That ought to make the road to a title for Texas or Oklahoma a bit easier. But how much easier?

Texas Declines Pac-10 Invitation; Big 12 Survives

The reign of superconferences will have to hold off for a little bit longer. In the last 24 hours, the impending implosion of the Big 12 was unexpectedly defused. The Texas Longhorns aren't going anywhere, and all indications suggest Texas A&M is staying put as well. Fox Sports has reportedly offered a richer TV rights package to the 10-member Big 12 than anyone had anticipated (or fathomed). Texas will take home most of those spoils, but everyone else in the conference -- especially the Big 12 northerners who stood to lose most in the Pac-16 scenario -- have to be satisfied as well.

Nebraska On Its Way To Big Ten

The great Conference Crisis of 2010 is really hitting its stride now. Nebraska's Board of Regents confirms that the Cornhuskers are officially severing ties with the Big 12 and will apply for Big Ten membership. That application is expected to be a mere formality and does not require a personal essay or standardized test scores. Nebraska does expect to receive the big envelope -- a projected $10 million boost in annual revenue for athletics. Nebraska hopes to accelerate the transition and begin conference play in 2011.
