Texas Declines Pac-10 Bid; Pac-16 Dies A Shocking Death

New, 393 comments

Well, at least I was right about the Pac-12 being the likeliest outcome!

Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott confirmed that the University of Texas has declined an invitation to join the conference. The decision will preserve the Big 12 as a 10-team conference, assuming Texas A&M elects to remain. Texas A&M officials were deliberating Monday afternoon.

In a brief phone conversation, Scott said: "We've been informed by University of Texas president Bill Powers that Texas will stay with the Big 12. We have not received definitive details about this decision. It is our understanding that Texas was going to meet the terms that we have proposed."

Nothing more to say really. Unnamed TV network wins again. Expect Utah to get an invite real soon.

Sound off in the comments and vote in the poll. What a crazy week this has been.
