The 9 Big XII members are attaching umbilical cords to Texas and feeding off them, which should end the talk of Mizzou coming to the Big Ten, and two, save schools like Kansas, Iowa State, KState and Baylor to going to the Mt. West.
So what does that do the rest of the expansion talk? I'm not really sure what the Pac-10 does. Goes after Utah? Utah is in a great position right now with the Mountain West. The Mountain West got stronger with Boise State, why would Utah want to leave? The Pac-10 at 11 teams would want to add and Utah has to be the target.
The Big Ten right now is the winner in the expansion getting Nebraska. I thought they would get Missouri, but not any more. Will they stop at 12? Maybe go after Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse and Notre Dame to round out at 16? Right now I think the Big Ten stays at 12. Goes to 12 in the Big Ten Title game, and cashes in on money.
So right now, I think all that we'll see is a 12th Pac-10 team.
Then the talk is of the Big Ten Divisions. What will it be?
If I were to guess....
