Tuesday may be the end of the college sports world as we know it. Texas holds all the chips, and the trickle down effect of what they do may not end for the near future. The history of the Big 12 rest in what Texas does, and are really going above and beyond to keep them and more importantly the Big 12 together. Big 12 commissioner is offering Texas a deal where they can have their own Television Network while still being under the frame work of the Big 12′s contract. Also, unlike most other conferences (and the likely reason Colorado left), the Big 12 does not do revenue sharing. So Texas will also be getting a larger percentage of the conferences kitty.
What does this all mean? I have no idea, but the way the the Big 12 is throwing ideas out there (all of which involve money), Texas has been rumored to seriously consider staying put. To me that would be great news, but I really don’t know that I believe it. If Texas does pack up, the Big 12 is done as several other schools will be moving on. Then that is when the trickle down effect will begin start hitting the ACC. It has recently been reported the SEC is not interested in Miami, Florida State, Georgia Tech, and Clemson, but again, I am not believing anything.
Tuesday should be a big day in deciding the college sports landscape, so be sure to check back for our take on all the comings and goings.
