    Is this for sure a done deal?

    Otherwise, we could look REALLY silly in the end.

    This is exactly what I'm thinking. Are we sure the other nine schools are all in?

    No, Chip Brown and Co. could look silly.

    Anyone else waiting for official news ?

    Like me ?

    I'm still waiting to hear about the official news/press release that the Big 12 has survived. I don't mean to rain on everyone else's parade, but the past couple of days, we've heard and read different things and judging how things have unfolded, there's no guarantee that Texas is done playing. Texas might want to see whether Pac-10 can up the ante.

    I am cautious until everything is confirmed.

    Exactly. After all the stories that have come out this past week, I'm skeptical until something actually happens....

    Almost too good to be true. The Cyclone fan in me is still waiting for the missed extra point.

    Re: Is this for sure a done deal?

    I just posted the similar sentiment. There's no guarantee that this is not the ploy of Texas to see whether Pac 10 can raise the ante

    Not a done deal yet, but it sounds like it is close.

    My biggest fear is the ESPN/ABC will get involved. No doubt that our new TV deal is with FOX, and I have always thought that ESPN/ABC wanted the demise of the Big 12 and to get their mitts into the Pac-16


    I'm on twitter @mookjnsn ... me, not her.

    5 sets of fan bases are really happy right now (Iowa State, Baylor, K-State, Kansas, and Mizzou); however 5 sets of fan bases really liked the thought of moving (Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Texas).

    Re: Is this for sure a done deal?

    I'm just worried that we're all going to have egg on our faces talking about breaking ground on bowling in the south endzone and all the other things we're going to do with our money when this deal doesn't pan out?

    Texas could easily be leaking this new info to make the Pac 10 up the ante. That scares me to death.

    So in other words... it's not a done deal yet.

    A deal isn't a deal... until it is.

    I've heard about a lot of "deals" in the last week that never panned out. This better happen.
