    Sources: Texas' choice to join Pac-10 imminent - ESPN

    The departure of Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to the Pac-10 is imminent, four sources within the Big 12 Conference said Monday.

    One source said Dan Beebe's last-minute plan to save the conference has "zero" chance to succeed. Another source said it is "very unlikely" to succeed.

    Texas' interests in being aligned with the research opportunities and academic missions of Pac-10 schools is driving the decision, along with money.

    Beebe's last-ditch plan included an emotional plea about preserving rivalries and maintaining the best welfare of the student-athlete, one source said.

    Texas A&M is now most likely to join the SEC, a source within the Big 12 said. This move, in the wake of Colorado and Nebraska's departure, would further diminish the chance of Beebe's plan succeeding, one source said.

    Texas' decision is expected to come no later than Tuesday. One source familiar with Texas' plans suggested a hearing on Wednesday at the Texas House of Representatives is "a nonfactor."

    Hopefully Schad is wrong and Chip Brown is correct.

    This is an interesting battle between Schad and Brown. Brown gets his stuff from the Texas Athletic Department...and I think they are using him to a great extent...I think they didn't anticipate Texas A&M seriously considering the SEC...that has thrown a wrench into their plans.

    Yep...just heard Joe Schad on ESPN say this and he is pretty sure. All of you concerned with us being too beholden to UT are about to get your wish...UT won't be "kicking around" ISU anymore. Of course, as the old saying goes...'be careful what you wish for'.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I've heard from a good source that this is actually not true. Not arguing, just sayin'.

    The four sources are from Texas A&M. Or possibly Nebraska and Colorado.

    I will place a bet on Chip Brown. He is closer to the sources of information in Texas.

    One minute Texas says that it is all up to Nebraska to keep the conference together, the next minute they say it is up to A&M to keep the conference together. By the time this whole thing is done Texas will have blamed 6 other teams for "breaking up the conference".
