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. At least until the next wave of conference raiding begins anew.
