    CU to the Pac 10?

    Looking very likely. Orangebloods.com is reporting that Colorado will be making a major announcement on Wednesday (tomorrow) about this.

    Re: CU to the Pac 10?

    That would be a good thing. Get them out of the conference. Easily replaceable. If the Big 12 does implode than we have a better chance of joining the MWC with Colorado gone

    Re: CU to the Pac 10?

    Colorado has been there since the Big 7 days... or earlier? I don't see why anyone would want this goup of teams to break up...

    If true, smart move by Colorado. Don't wait for others. Go out and be proactive and make your own future.

    Re: CU to the Pac 10?

    Just a question, when did orangebloods.com become such a credible site. The info that they are releasing has been pretty good so far, but when did this happen?

    I don't know, but this article def. had a feel of being the official mouthpiece of Whorns propoganda.

    Re: CU to the Pac 10?

    Orangebloods is obviously getting their info from someone VERY HIGH UP in the UT AD.

    So much of the info they are getting is very good, but it's also the stuff that UT wants the public to know. UT propaganda if you will.

    So if CU has already gotten an invite from the Pac-10, and the Pac-10 wants 6, that means UT, TT, A&M, OU, and OSU also get bids.

    But...if the TX legislature forces by law UT, BU, TT, A&M to move together, and the Pac-10 will do whatever is necessary to get UT and A&M, then...OSU is out.

    From what I've read and heard, the OK legislature likely will not intervene to make OSU and OU move together.

    Or...A&M to SEC???...not so sure the Pac goes for UT,BU,TT,OU,OSU...OSU out and KU in??? OSU to the SEC with A&M???

    Very, very, interesting...

    I agree completely. If Nebraska keeps the dominoes from falling, the Big XII can replace CU with TCU or Houston without much trouble. If other teams bolt to leave Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Baylor, the Big XII can look to bring in a number of the Mountain West teams and Boise State (wouldn't it be preferable for the MWC teams to join a league that is assured BCS standing?) to form a new look conference.

    It's not a bad move for Colorado, but doesn't make Iowa State's options any more dire.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    I see the Big XII going after Louisville or Cincy before Houston or TCU if Colorado leaves. We need a team for the North, not the South.
