08:18 AM ET 09.19 | Who will hit 16 teams first? The Pac-12 appears to be working out the final details of a deal that would bring Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech to the conference, sources close to the situation told Hookem.com and the American-Statesman on Sunday morning. Nothing has been accepted or approved, yet, but the deal would allow the Longhorns to keep the Longhorn Network. Texas, though, would have to add Pac-12 (soon to be 16) content to the LHN programming. A high-ranking school administrator at one of the four Big 12 schools said "It's heating up. We're trying to move in that direction (of joining the Pac-12)." When asked about the terms of the agreement, the administrator said, "We can live with it."

I can't wait until those people from Palo Alto, Westwood, etc get to visit beautiful scenic Lubbock and Stillwater. Boy are they gonna love it!

So let me get this straight,, if the Pac-10 becomes the Pac-16 then its members will be required to play all their non conference games within the first 3 weeks of the season.
So the Irish first 3 games are going to be even harder than they are now! Well maybe Stanford will go back to being Stanford and USC will never recover from the Bush scandal.

Actually, if you add the best CA HS games to the Texas HS games that in and of itself is a pretty decent sports channel.

She's really not that bad, only see her 3x a year or so. Just thought this horse had been beaten down fairly well by now.

Obviously you have never been to the WSU campus. Not exactly hopping there either.

West coast fans barely want to watch them...you think the rest of us here on the East care that much..

You would have no choice, either you watch the 16 PAC or reruns of Andy Griffiths. :-)

Andy Griffith was ACC country. This is what happens when families move from the SEC to the 12PAC!
