    For the Pac 10 worshippers.. I found this for ya.


    Timing wasn't right at the time since we pushed hard for the merger of the Big 8 and SWC 4 teams to form the Big 12.



    Seems like if the Pac 10 would have offered this one year before, it might have been closer to happening..

    This guy saw what could be coming. I think we're on the cusp of several giant, 14/16-team conferences -- within 10-15 years, if that.

    ``It's quite likely that at some point in the future, and I don't know how far, there will be more realignments and more reconfigurations," Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen said. ``We have become convinced major conferences are going to get bigger."

    No wonder we cannot afford a buyout.
