Suddenly these conferences will seem like big corporations. And I don't like the extra travel time - I think it will take it's toll on student athletes, going from CST to PST and back. What happens for instance when Texas has to travel to Wash St for baseball or volleyball? Not fun.
Yea I agree, that will be tough. I hate how the NCAA runs things, its like they prey on college athletes to get money, then they throw up these allegations and crap when the students that make them money get money.

With how things are though and all things considered(Big 12 dissolving), I don't understand why Texas doesn't join the SEC; I don't understand them going to the Pac 10. I mean I understand Oklahoma going, they sort of in that area where they could fit into a lot of different conferences and be ok. Nebraska going to the Big 10 is probably best for them. Texas would fit perfectly in the SEC though; and it'd probably help their recruiting.

The SEC will continue to dominate. I really don't care what the rest do.

They're doing a Toby Maguire.... show me the money. The Pac10 is up for a new TV contract while the Sec is not. Texas A&M is looking hard though.

I could really care less if A&M goes to the SEC if they don't bring UT with them. A&M gets by on their rivals names, they haven't been a draw in sports for years plus I'd like to see LSU/UF and other baseball teams in the SEC play UT each season

If UT joined the SEC the SEC would automatically become the undisputed best conference in college football - and probably also baseball.

This may be a real stupid question - but doesn't this also affect the other men's and women's athletics, not just football? Has anybody thought about that?!
