if Mizzou and others bail I think there is a decent chance.
I read the same article, but remember that A&M and OU are also mentioned as SEC candidates to create a 14 school SEC, imagine if Bama and Auburn got bumped to the SEC East, a top 25 school could finish 5th in that division.....   


I was thinking Texas or A&M, who used to have a rivalry with Arkansas. If the SEC re-orgs, I think you'll see Vandy gone (they would be a good fit for the Big Ten academically and geographically). I also think they want to somehow bring in Ga. Tech.

I would think, since the SEC has 2 major network deals (CBS, ESPN/ABC) and a minor network, that they could outbid any conference for whoever they wanted if $$$ was the primary concern.

An SEC with Texas, OU, UTAM, and Ga. Tech (and sans Vandy) would be outrageous.
Great concept JG, but can the SEC toss Vandy out like the Big East did to Temple?  Vandy has been as coompetitve as Miss St in football.  But perhaps the academic side of things would attract Vandy to the Big Ten but that makes me wonder if the Big Ten would want a Vandy with no natural rivalry waiting like a Pitt would have with Penn State.

I'm shocked that nobody wants Kansas. They have a monster basketball program and an emerging football program, those are the 2 major cash cows.
That is a very good question.  They have established rivalries with Mizzou and K-State, an excellent B-ball program and as you stated their football team is rapidly gaining respectability.  I simply can not see the Jayhawks playing in a league with UAB, Tulsa, and Houston.  But what if the Big East was fleeced of a Pitt and maybe a Rutgers.  Could KU, K-State and maybe a Memphis be added to the Big East and create something on the lines of the Metro League back in the '80s that had the likes of South Carolina, Ga Tech, Memphis, FSU, VA Tech, Louisville, and Cincy except that the league would play football as well.

There are no regional ties to the Big East, and there is no way in hell Kansas should have to play college basketball in the Mountain West where they would blow out their opponent every single game.

If the MWC got Kansas they would become very good in football, e**CENSORED**ally when they add Boise State. Basketball though Kansas would run through that conference every year like Memphis does in C-USA

Rumor is they will offer Texas, Texas Tech, A&M, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State this week to join the conference. Power shift big time. But its probably just another rumor like the rest of them

Not sure what will come of it all OBF, but I used to work for the new commissioner of the PAC-10.  Smart guy, I know he's going to at least get yall some Pac-10 tv like the Big-10 soon...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

Big 10 offered the same schools. Sounds like the Big 12 would be gone with left overs joining the ACC and Big East. This would be great for either Pac 10 or Big 10. Ability to recruit in states like Texas would do wonders.

He's ethical, loyal, and aggressive.  If it's in the best interest of the Pac-10 it'll get done...

yep, as an Oregon fan I like that because Oregon has had decent success in Texas the last 3 years. Being on TV and the news could only help. And some of the best talent comes out of that area. Getting any team in Texas to join your conference is a win win

Scott said the pac-10 will be expanding. Wont say who or anything. Seems like the Texas Legislator wants the pac 10 to take Baylor over CU

HUH? Why would the Texas Legislature care or have a say? Baylor is private.

Because their President - Kenneth Starr = and heavy handed Alum base are pushing the Texas Legislature of which many alumni are current members..

When Texas, Oklahoma, and USC dominate this conference every single year are you still going to putting Oregon in the same breath? Come on man. 2nd rate program compared to those, this is horrible for Oregon. Ducks are better off capitalizing on SC's down years.
