After Colorado, Boise State, and Nebraska bolted from their respective conferences, it appears we have a few days of calm, but I don’t think it is going to last very long. Tuesday is the date that is being thrown out for when Texas is going to make their decision, and for better or worse (worse in myopinion) the fate of how we watch College Football hangs in the blance. Oklahoma is going to met on Wednesday, but by then I’d wager they are going to do whatever Texas does.
There is a lot of speculation going on with what is going to happen, and though my opinion isn’t really much better than anyone else, I think the Big 12 is dead, and the era of the Super Conference is upon us. The ACC will survive, but I’m not sure what it will look like (but I sure hope Maryland is in it). In fact, the lead players are going to be the Pac 10, Big 10, SEC, and ACC. The Big East is also likely to follow the Big 12 into extinction. Granted I have nothing to base this on, but I’m pretty comfortable making those statements with the information that has come out up to this point.
The only thing I can say for any certainty is that next week is going to be huge. So check back next week as the future starts to unfold. Prior to Tuesday I want to take a look at some of the options the ACC can explore. It is kind of hard to do with so much unknown, but what’s the point of having a blog if you can’t throw out wild theories with little factual support.
