Conspiracy Theory

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott said he did not believe the theory that Texas used the Pac-10 merely to boost its power in the Big 12 Conference and never intended to move west.
“I don’t believe that,” Scott said. “I think political forces were at work and prevented them from moving.”

    Conspiracy Theories and Texas? That’s like so 60′s.

    After reading other reports on the Big 12 conference presently, the issue of that conference lasting beyond the next year or two is definitely unresolved. Due to mistrust alone, I’d say one or two of its members could cause another heated storm that this 2nd time around, the conference will breakup.

    I think Larry Scott is at a level of denial not seen since everyone at UCLA turned a blind eye to good ol’ Papa Sam for over a decade.

    @dtksr1: Which program is going to leave, and where are they going to go? Oklahoma is the only program that could possibly stand as an independent. Any other program would have to join a conference. Let’s start top to bottom: Texas has the sweetest deal in the NCAA. They’re not going anywhere. Oklahoma and A&M are making out well too. Texas Tech is joined at the hip to Texas and A&M. OK St is joined at the hip to OK. Baylor would love to be joined at the hip to any of the above. The north schools aren’t going anywhere. Kansas has basketball and Missouri has a big market. But nobdy wanted them the last time around, what will make them more attractive. The other schools are even less attractive. It’s sad and pathetic to watch, but all of those schools are better off with TX than without TX. That will hold the conference together.
