    I've never been able to figure out why they're worth so much (now, anyway...) Maybe the TV folks are after the gold flake on their helmets.. or their Lucky Charms?

    IT'S DONE! Jeff Tarpley from aggieyell.com reports: Texas A&M IS going to the SEC. Future of football in Texas unknown. Wow.

    Source: Big 12 has contacted another Texas school about joining up. It's not Frogs as they're headed to Big East. SMU? Houston?
    Rice or Houston would be my guesses.

    Um, I believe the aTm and Mizzou leaving the Big 12 thing is fait accompli, along with TCU and WVU to the Big 12. Please quit regurgitating postings from the old Mega-thread.

    Re: ***OFFICIAL BIG 12 EXPANSION THREAD 2.0***

    This article shows exactly how conflicted ESPN/ABC and Fox Sports are in this whole conference realignment scenario. Now I know that if the "Forgotten Five" had actually been "kicked to the curb", we had a basis to sue the pants off all parties involved. Had FSU and Clemson left the ACC, I'm sure the ACC would have sued not only the schools, but the networks for damages as a result of their conflict of interest as well.

    Edit: I guess what I'm saying is unless FSU and the Big 12 are willing to pay the ACC a lot of money, it's unlikely we'll see FSU join our conference; hence the talk about Louisville joining with ND - not that scenario will actually happen of course.

    If Louisville does join (big if), they'd probably be ISU's new conference rival. I know rivalries are hard to manufacture, but this series could be sold as the "War of the Cardinal."

    In regards to expansion, he expresses how much he isn't crazy about getting back to a championship game for fear that a national title contenter can get knocked out when otherwise they would not have. Also, in regards to going above 10 members soon, he said that he isn't even sure he could get all the votes needed right now for that. Overall, it isn't that great of an interview in regards to any new information as most answers have been the usual scripted answers.

    Pretty dumb reason when its already been proven that this can happen without a championship game. I seem to recall at least one pivotal game last season. It would be nice to have the additional TV revenue the championship game brings.

    Was my exact thoughts. And a championship game may have been enough to get OSU back in.

    Agreed. Also, OSU wouldve been helped by a championship game last season. One more game against one of the top teams from the conference mightve been the edge they needed.

    And yeah, the money is a good reason too.
