why does all this speculation exist? It all started out of the big 10 and their desire to expand. The other conferences thought maybe we need to look at expansion. pac 10 wants a championship game. There's so much talk about different scenarios. Just because a team is invited by a conference that doesn't mean they are going to go. where does this stand now? what's real is that the big 12 conference is working hard at their television agreement. the league is saying "we've got a good deal here - let's not dismantle but get a better tv deal for us" the nebraska texas game was very highly rated. other leagues noticed it's about money and tv partnerships would you be surprised this weekend if something comes from the pac 10? Everyone wants to be the first one to get it right. I have no idea what's going to happen. It is a high stakes poker game that is going on. We are fortunate to be mentioned that we are going to be included in a potential group. We are a proud member of the big 12. There may be nothing that happens. But if Notre Dame makes a move, or someone else, the dominoes will start to fall. it's been a crazy year. we are very excited about some things coming together for us. the big 12 is positioned well for a new tv agreement. our scholarship commitment for next year is 9 million dollars which is the highest in the conference ======= I still say I'll believe it when I see it. I remember in the 90's when those close to the program were saying "it's a done deal" that the buffs would go to the pac 10 at that time. It didn't happen. I think from cu's end it still will be a money decision - bohn's comment about "us having the highest scholarship commitment in the conference" is an indication of whoever comes up with the best monetary package for the buffs will get them. If most of the big 12 stays the cost could be too great for the buffs to leave.
