    Re: Big Ten going after...

    I just don't see it.

    BTN or not, crappy Big XII tv deal or not - Texas has this conference in it's back pocket.

    Not to mention the logistics of it all.

    Re: Big Ten going after...

    Not gonna happen. Texas doesn't have to share its revenue with the rest of the Big12 why would they want to change that.

    I agree, if anything UT is just using this as leverage to make sure the BXII stays in their pocket.

    I saw a stat that said last year Texas made something like $12 million from Big 12 TV.

    With the Big Ten, they would make $22 million at the very least.

    No way is Texas going to play football in November at Big 10 schools. Plus, look at the travel costs. Never going to happen.

    Re: Big Ten going after...

    Regardless of whether this happens or not, changes are certainly going to be taking place in the landscape of College sports. ISU needs to do everything possible to be ready and be attractive enough to remain in a BCS conference.

    The MAJOR thing ISU can do in the short(er) term to increase attractiveness is to, quite frankly, perform the necessary work on JTS (bowling of endzone). At least this would signal that we are prepared to invest money in BCS-level sports, and get our stadium to begin looking like a major college stadium, rather than a texas junior high stadium.

    I know we are all fatigued about the stadium expansion stuff, but seriously, this is what needs to be done VERY SOON.

    Yeah. Texas would be scared off by travel costs.

    Re: Big Ten going after...

    It's all posturing on Texas's part. Zero chance this would ever happen.

    If it did, I'd actually love it though.

    That's a two way street however.

    Think Minnesota, Northwestern, Illinois, even Iowa is all that anxious to send all their teams down there? And it's not football alone. All the minor sports (softball, baseball, tennis, swimming).

    I rather doubt there's much merit to this story.
