Has the demise of the Big 12 Conference been greatly exaggerated or?


The Big 12 Conference is reportedly on the ropes, doing a rope-a-dope, trying to survive…  Colorado, already on the way to the PAC 10 Conference, and Nebraska tilting toward the Big 10…   Not many are talking openly but the PAC 10 supposedly also has invited or would like to invite Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to join it… 

 On the other hand, the South Eastern Conference (S.E.C). apparently would like to invite only Texas and Texas A & M to join its conference… 

 From this perch (yes, PanAm has an eye for sports, too), as of today, it appears, paraphrasing the famous “Mark Twain” quote,… that “the rumored demise of the Big 12 Conference might be greatly exaggerated”, but PanAm is prepared for all possibilities… 

 Nebraska might not leave the conference, and even if it does, and even if Colorado has already made its decision to jump ship, the remaining 10 schools of the Big 12 could choose to remain together, then invite Texas Christian University (T.C.U.) and one other school from the Mountain West Conference or else where to fill the slots of any two possibly departing schools…

If the Big 12 does succumb, likely scenario as seen from here today is that most schools of the Southern Section of the Big 12 would vote to join the PAC 10 Southern Section… 

Just sayin’…  Stay tuned…

  1. Seem like it was. If the conference expands, it should bring in Houston and TCU to the south division and move Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to the north.

  2. Pretty darn good conference, the SEC, Chuck, so no wonder being a disciple!

    • True enough….unfortunately I am an Auburn fan, so I have been left wanting the past few years….

  3. As a die hard disciple of the SEC, I am not sure what the fuss is all about…. 🙂

    • I’m from a different region, but from my vantage point I prefer Auburn over Alabama… “Tubby” was “pushed out”, but landed in a pretty good place at Texas Tech. For various reasons I like Auburn Coach Gene Chizik, know a bit about him in other jobs…
