This is the begining of the end for the BIG 12. If Texas leaves in the coming weeks, the conference will collapse considering that Texas tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will all be following.

Yeah Baylor as well per ESPN they at least want to follow but who knows if they get an invite..

Good for Colorado, I'm happy for them. I just hope my Missouri Tigers are as lucky in their pursuit to get out of this **** conference.

* OU has decided, because of the long history betwen the schools, that it plans to stick with Texas -- wherever that may be: "I think it would be a horrendous decision for OU and Texas to break up," Castiglione said. "We're going to stick together if it's at all possible."

Looks like Nebraska may be gone despite the efforts of Kansas trying to keep them.

It's the start of the end of the Big 12 as we know it.

I wonder what the Big 12 commissioner has to say about all of this.

This was a decent move by the Pac-10. I have no idea how good CU's academics are but at least we got the Denver TV market cornered.

I think i heard on one of ESPN's shows the other day(so take it for what its worth) that CU is on some type of academic probation. It is based on some point system and they were the only BCS school to fail it.

They got docked scholarships for being under the APR limit. They weren't the only BCS school to fail it. Ole Miss, for one, also failed.

Air Force and BYU? I can understand BYU but why not go after Utah as well?

Colorado, will look odd in the Pac 10. Will the PAC 10 change names?

I would have thought TCU and BYU then maybe Utah and maybe even Boise State but Air Force threw me off a little until I looked at some stats.


Air Force has been finishing in the top helf of the MWC in pretty much every sport for the past few years. They have made the NCAA Tourney in Basketball alot and in football they consistently make it to a bowl game.


Looks like we wil find out today though.

Boise State is joining the Mountain West

Someone said on Penn State's premium message board that Scott Van Pelt(I think?) said that Virginia Tech could be moving to the SEC.

thenewfeature06 06-11-2010 12:04 PM

Like the move for Nebraska.. the basketball program will get raped, but if they can come that close to beating Texas in football with Michigan down and OSU always vunerable Nebraska can play with that conference. Personally, I am just talking sports wise, not academics..money, all that jazz.

The Colorado move was minor to me.. I am not sure what to think about it. I guess it makes sense academically? They certainly won't be compeating unless they were to move to the Mountain West or WAC lol.

Boise to the MWC will be an exciting conference with BYU, Utah, and TCU.

King Carls 5 Year Plan 06-11-2010 12:06 PM

This is a sad sad day in Kansas City. The fall of the Big 12, not only hurts the local rivalries, but it puts a serious damper on local college sporting event in this city. No more Big 12 Title game at Arrowhead. No more Big 12 Basketball Tournament at Sprint Arena. No more MU vs KU Armagedon Game at Arrowhead.

As a MU guy, I really hope that the Big 10 gives us an invitation to join. Looks like the entire Big 12 South, minus Baylor, will be invited to the Pac 10. That leaves KU, K-State, Iowa St and MU out in the cold. KU is strong enough in basketball that they should get into another BCS Conference, but KSU and ISU will be lucky if the Missouri Valley offers them a spot. Neither team has much to offer in $$$, recruiting base or large market followings.

The Big 12 should have been much more proactive in the past few years and tried to get a better tv deal, start their own network or find a way to create more $$$. It looks as though they sat on their hands for to long and all the bigger conferences are now taking advantage of the opportunity.

I'm old enough to remember somethings about the Big 8, but most of my college sports memories are from Big 12 schools, games and events that I attended. It's going to be a rough transition for me to watch MU in the Big 10. At least the next games I go to will envolve Ohio St, Penn St or Michigan.

The Bigger questions with this new Super Conferencses and their alignment together will be the future of the NCAA and will their be a new college orginization formed? If the SEC, Big 10 and the Pac 10 all aglig together and form a new college orginization, than the NCAA will go bye bye and athletes may start to receive some payment.

Probably will not happen but I would love it as probably anybody in the ACC would.

Question for anyone that has more information on it than myself. If a school changes confrences does it become official as of the 2012 season in football?

How about other sports?

Depends on the school and the conference contracts. For the Big 12 teams, I believe that is the case.

And yes, they will switch in all sports. Only possible exception would be Notre Dame if they go to a conference.

This will likely go on for awhile, so I have stickied the thread.

Boise will join in July 2011.. ESPN Bottomline..
