I said a couple of days ago and it can be checked up on that getting Colorado means nothing for the Pac 10. Writer's,anaylists and us bloggers were all calling this the armegeddon of college sports. My mind however thought differently taking the Buffaloes first meant nothing. Who cares about Colorado, the Pac 10 broaden it's shoulders like the rest was inevitable. Well guess what it wasn't the Big 12 needed a wake up call and they got it big time.
Texas wanted their own television network,they got it, they wanted more money,they got it. I mean Texas played this thing as perfectly as one could you lose some unneeded fat that was hangin onto the Big 12 and keep all of you're key players. Bye Bye, Nebraska and Mizzou the Big 12 doesn't need you takin their homegrown Texas talent anymore because movin to the Big 10 like Donnie Brasco said,"Forget About It".
So at the end of the day I look at it like this A&M and Oklahoma including Texas just played everyone. Instead of them leaving they the other guys leave leaving the door open for the Big 12 to start recruiting some big time schools. Why would the Big 12 let the Pac 10 and Big 10 take the pieces that are the true Kings and Queens off the chessboard. When the Big 12 can become the super conference of the future. Let all the chips keep fallen and my friends you'll see the power move the Big 12 just made to team up with the SEC as the 2 powers in college football and basketball.
And not to blow my own horn but i called this the other day when the Pac 10 took the weakest link Colorado. I smelled a rat when Texas and Oklahoma weren't the first to go.
