    Notre Dame to Big XII - UT and NU Stay

    If I were Beebe or the UT AD, this is the scenario I would be going after with all possible resources. Everyone has said that ND and UT hold the keys to expansion talk - why not combine those keys and create a premier conference for television? This would be more lucrative to UT than a Pac 10 or possibly even a B10 deal since it would keep the geography closer together while expanding the television market.

    Then add Marquette and Depaul (as well as Xavier and Creighton) for basketball to create the top notch FB and BB conference.

    Any conference with Texas and Notre Dame would be worthy of its own conference network and able to sell subscriptions. Add in place the teams currently in the Big XII (i.e. replace CU with ND) and you have a premier conference where those two teams are the true power brokers. If they go to the Big 10, they have to share power with Michigan, OSU and PSU. If UT goes to the Pac 10, they have to share with USC and I think Notre Dame is a much better national draw, especially with probation looming. The SEC would require UT sharing power with Alabama, LSU and Florida in Football and Kentucky in Basketball.

    There's a big part of me that wonders if yesterday's Nebraska talk and today's Texas and Texas A&M talk is all about getting Notre Dame to commit. And maybe no Big 12 teams join the Big 10. Then the only question would be whether we lose five more to the PAC-10 or replace Colorado and move on.

    I was saying I don't trust Beebe. He's proven far too incompetent

    Beebe is way to bust trying to figure out Minesweeper on his computer to worry about adding teams to the Big 12.

    I agree. But since I figure many of these ideas are coming from the internet anyway, might as well throw my idea out there

    That's something I think EVERYONE in the Big 10 + Nebraska + Texas + A&M would get on board with...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
