    Big10 Wants/Wanted Texas but Tech Caused Problem

    But according to this column...academics did come into play due to Texas Tech not being a member of the AAU. Apparently Texas wanted to bring A&M and Tech with it. Interesting...

    That is good and bad. Bad for the Big 12 meaning that it is more apparent that Texas is actively listening to others....although I think we all knew it was true. I personally think that if the Big10 would allow Tech, they would be able to snag all 3 texas schools plus Mizzou and Neb. The big 10 is keeping quiet, quite the opposite of the Pac10. Just my 2 cents.

    That would be quite the conference. Have TX schools, UN, Mizzou, Iowa, MN, Ill in one division and Wisc, NW, OSU, Mich, MSU, PSU, Purdue, Indiana in another.

    I'm blown away that they would even consider doing that.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Big10 Wants/Wanted Texas but Tech Caused Problem

    This kind of reminds me of what I suspect is going on with KU/K-state. I think there has to be some state legislation that is keeping them together. I cannot imagine how the Pac 10 would rather take TTech or Okie State rather than KU. With KU you get the KC market and a Bball powerhouse.

    How upset would you be if you were KU right now? They've won how many BBall championships and recently won a BCS game and now they're sitting on the outside too, lumped in with ISU and K-State.
