    Except for the 2 Oregon and SoCal schools I´ve heard everyone being mentioned as the schools who blocked expansion.

    The California schools all were against expansion. They reluctantly agreed to equal revenue sharing in the Pac-12 and there was no way in hell they were going to allow a new conference member to come in that wouldn't also agree to those terms.

    how would a houston chronicle writer know that? Seems like pure speculation.

    It came to him in a dream, and Ken Star was able to verify it.

    So just Phil Knight wanted Texas to join? Must be the swoosh on their jerseys that swayed him....

    I think the only Oregon people who were for it were their bandwagon fans - who also happen to be Duke fans during basketball season.

    My sources are telling me that Kansas, Kansas St, and Baylor were also against the Pac 12 expansion. They suspect Iowa State was also against it, but no one bothered to ask their opinion on the matter.

    I really don't give a flying wallenda who was against expansion, as long as there were enough to block it ......

    And who would want Texas or OU opening a Central Standard leak and adding strong competition for California recruits? Never mind they've been choking in big games lately, they would still have a sizeable pull in the recruiting game and steal plenty of talent from the other schools which they would go and squander in favor of in-state kids. Block.

    Ugh. Every time I see a Red Sox or Cubs jerseys in other MLB stadiums, I want to set a kitten on fire.
