Big 12 Survives

Well, it is all but certain that the Big 12 will remain a conference. To be honest, I had my doubts when there were rumors flying around that Texas or Oklahoma might be moving, but now it seems like only being down Colorado and Nebraska will not hurt the conference that much. However, it is odd that now the Big 12 has 10 teams in the Big Ten has 12 teams while the Pac-10 has 11 teams. Whatever, maybe it's just like some very complex upper level math where things aren't really what they are because they have been applied using a different system.

So what does this mean for the Pac-10? USC has fallen into some problems as of late, so maybe Colorado do well in football. What does this mean for the Big 12? Well, I don't really think it matters that much because you always have Texas and Oklahoma on top anyway. What does it mean for the Big Ten? More quality competition from Nebraska, but I don't think it will totally upset the power balance. Whenever we see a major turnover like this, I always wonder about the amount of money that is involved. If it is financially beneficial, I think any team will leave the conference. Money talks.
