    Sounds like a new spin on how the Big XII might survive. Go back to 10 teams and dump the title game.

    ESPNs insider rumor page had a take on it....

    We should all push for the BYU to the Big 12 option. Would seem to make Utah to the PAC much easier.

    That would mean Pistol Pete would have to break his date with Larry and slink back to the Axis of Arrogance.

    Beer sales at the stadium would suck.

    Beer sales before/after the game wouldn't change much, though... :lol:

    I hope the B12 does stay together. Although if I were them (I love saying "them" when referring to the B12, BTW) I would see if I could add some combination of two of the following: BYU, TCU, Houston, SMU, Memphis, CSU. Probably in that order of preference, too. A 12 team league has advantages, and UT would still have their boot on the neck of everybody else in the conference.

    I hope the Big 12 stays in tact, minus Nebraska and CU. Decoupling from UT is the best possible thing for CU in the long run.

    I think Beebe is a talking head at this point.
