The Big 12 may have 10 teams, but will move on without Colorado and Nebraska

compiled from staff and wire reports

Despite everybody’s belief and rumors, the Big 12 Conference will not be going into extinction.

The much-maligned and beleagued conference made a big-time comeback on Monday when Texas turned down an invitation to join the Pacific 10 and decided to stay in the Big 12.

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M quickly made the decision to the conference after commissioner Dan Beebe convinced his members that they would make more money in television and media deals in a 10-team Big 12 Conference than in a 16-team Pacific 10.

Rumor has it that Texas is clear and free to set up its own TV network and can keep all proceeds in exchange for remaining in the Big 12.

The news was extremely good for Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, Iowa State and Missouri who would’ve been left without a conference if the Big 12 had dissolved completely.

Conference shakeups already! Colorado to Pacific 10

As expected Thursday, the first school that was going to leave the Big 12 was Colorado and they’ve chosen the Pac-10.

Colorado will become the 11th member of the Pacific 10 Conference.

The Buffaloes might not be the only team bolting from the Big 12. Nebraska could become a part of the Big 10 as soon as this weekend and there is speculation that Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State may also jump to the Pac-10 to possibly form a 16-team super conference.

If all the expected shakeup continues, the Big 12 might just be history. That would leave Missouri, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State out in the middle of the desert with nowhere to go. The Big 12 has been a highly successful conference that was formed in 1994 when the Big Eight invited the four Texas schools from the Southwest Conference.

The benefactor of all of this could be the Mountain West Conference, which could swoop up those ‘leftover’ schools and former a superconference of its own. There have been rumblings that Boise State is going to join the Mountain West.
