NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Texas Two Step: Who are they taking to the dance?
February 16, 2010, 09:20 AM
Texas finds themselves in the most influential position in college football.

The PAC 10 recruited Texas during the demise of the SWC. Now both the PAC 10 and Big 10 are exploring a jump to 12 teams.

Texas isn't too happy with the revenue sharing in the current Big 12... so rumor has it they're listening.

If the PAC 10 raids Colorado, the Big 12 suddenly becomes vulnerable. Then the Big 10's offer to Missouri certainly looks plausible. The two power conferences just might start a bidding war.

The Longhorns will not-so-secretly make it known that their premier program is listening to all offers. The Big 10 calculated a break-even dollar amount for expansion, and only a team like UT or ND could bring in that revenue.

Despite the regional rivalries, where is Texas going to strike the best economic deal? PAC 10, Big 10, or holding the Big 12 hostage?
