    Default PAC 10 take over of Big 12

    It is rumored that the PAC 10 will offer spots in a conference of 16 to 6 big twelve schools. Those schools are Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, OSU and Colorado.

    I think would improve all of the sports in the Pac 10, wrestling would aided by the addition of Ok and Ok state. Football would get a big boost from nearly every school except colorado and A&M, this would make the Pac the second best football conference after the SEC. Baseball where I think the Pac was already strong would benefit from the texas and oklahoma schools as well. This would create a power conference in nearly all sports. Good for the Pac bad for the Big 12 and possibly bad for the big 10.

    Great ! It'll eliminate USC and Texas and/or Oklahoma from the title game each year.

    This would be good for the PAC10 wrestling becasue you will have at least two teams (OU and OSU) which are among the few schools in the nations that won't drop wrestling.
    Where that leave Nebraska in FB?
    And what about Iowa St., Missuori and Nebraska in wrestling?

    As I said in an earlier thread, it would be nice to see some of the top teams wrestle at Stanford, I'd definitely make the 45 minute drive to see that.

    maybe the new pac 10 could incorporate all of the big twelve wrestling programs, not all the schools but just the wrestling. It would make it the second toughest wrestling conference in the nation and perhaps help to support other wrestling programs already in the pac 10.

    Don't read too deep into UT heading to the PAC 10.

    Ohio St. president's e-mail links Texas to Big Ten expansion talk
    An e-mail sent by the president of Ohio State to the Big Ten's commissioner hints that the conference is pursuing Texas as part of an expanded Big Ten.

    Ohio State president Gordon Gee told Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany in an April 20 e-mail that Gee had spoken with Texas president Bill Powers.

    In the e-mail obtained by the Associated Press, Gee writes that Powers would welcome a call to say they have a "Tech" problem.

    Texas Tech is one of Texas' rivals in the Big 12. Ohio State officials declined to explain the meaning of a "Tech" problem.

    Meanwhile, the Big 12 appears less secure than ever after four days of spring meetings. All commissioner Dan Beebe could do Friday was say he's an optimistic fellow by nature and that a "process" had been put in place by Big 12 presidents to ensure the long-term viability of a conference.

    There is a nice breakdown of this situation on YAHOO sports today-apparently Texas is big ? bound and about 15 strong schools will lose nearly all athletics .

    I don't know about ISU, but the latest is that there is mutual interest between the bigten and Nebraska and Missouri. From what I'm reading, Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State would all be left out in the cold if the pac-10 and bigten both get the schools they're rumored to want. The latest reports are that the Big-12 has given an ultimatum to Missouri and Nebraska to make a decision by Friday.

    If the bigten adds the schools their rumored to add to make the conference 16 teams. It would be a complete super conference in wrestling. In addition to adding Nebraska and Mizzou, they're also rumored to be looking at Pitt, Rutgers and Syracuse. The 'cuse would have to bring back their program, but that probably wouldn't be a problem with the extra money the school would stand to gain from membership in the conference.

    Personally, I'd like to see a 14 team bigten with the new teams being Mizzou, Nebraska and Pitt.
