    Whoa Whoa Whoa. "This move should be a benefit to all the college athletes of these twelve schools..." Really? Really?!? Au contraire, mon frère (that's something I learned at UCLA)... You are right, this IS all about money. But not for the student athlete (who use ...see Reggie Bush and OJ Mayo and get used ... see most everyone else). This move benefits the professional athletic programs that are conducted under the auspices of a monopoly called the NCAA. The reason it isn't the PAC-16 is that the Big-12 (with ten teams, go figure) sold their soul and money to Texas to keep them in the Big 12. Texas got $10M more. The rest of the BCS and television convinced them to stay to keep the status quo. If Texas had moved to the PAC-16, the BCS would have been in real trouble and there likely would have been 4 superconference and a football playoff. Is the PAC-12 better than the Pac-10? probably but not as good as the PAC-16 could have been. But this does not benefit the student!

    Not if the Texas Longhorns selfish, greedy, monopolistic out of control egos continues! You forget, that the Texas Longhorns greed was the reason why the Southwest Conference went down in flames in the first place! And unless the Longhorns realize the error of their ways (yeah, right) or better yet, the other members of the Big 12-2 keep the Longhorns egos in check (they have failed miserably so far), then the Big 12-2 will be joining the Southwest in hell in a couple of years! In fact, Missouri is STILL complaining about the Longhorns hogging most of the money for themselves!

    I'd bet my money the REAL reason why the Big 12-2 is still alive is because unlike the Big12-2 teams, the Pac-12 teams (and for that matter the Big 10+2 and SEC) knows how to keep the Longhorns greed under control and the Longhorns know it!

    (continued from last post)

    And unless the Longhorns start sharing the money, the Big 12-2 will be a dead conference in a couple of years (even if they add a BYU and New Mexico or Colorado State to the mix) and the Pac-12 will finally become the Pac-16!

    And the will fun will finally begin!
