So then, here's the latest scoop on 16 team conferences and the death of the Big 12. It's over. Texas and Oklahoma and their lackey conference-mates (except Missouri) have decided to keep the Big 12 going. Why? What was all that crap about moving to other conferences? There are lots of theories (feel free to check 'em out) out there - ESPN denying Fox USC-Texas championships, reducing the Big 12 to 10 teams to eliminate a championship game and leave Texas as top dog, aliens (well, maybe not that one) - but the most likely one is the money. More cash for Texas. So all we're left with is Nebraska to the Big 10, Boise State to the MWC and Colorado to the Pac 10. The Pac 10 will probably go for one more, Utah seems to be the popular choice, and unless the Big 10 goes East, we're done for now. The only question now is - why does the Big 10 have 12 teams and the Big 12 have 10?
