The demise of the Big 12, as written by Bill Connelly yesterday, could be happening sooner than anyone expected. It's hard to separate all the rumors out there, but multiple sources have told ESPN.com that Nebraska will be making a move to the Big Ten as early as Friday.
That move could create a landslide of moves across the country. Notre Dame and Missouri also reportedly have offers to join the Big Ten, which are being seriously considered. If the Big 12 loses two schools, it could also risk losing up to six more (and as a result, dissolving) to the Pac-10. If Texas heads to the Pac-10, that would be the end of the Big 12.
In other words, starting on Friday, college football could change completely -- in a hurry. Or it couldn't.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
