I think the "let's join the Pac-12!" crowd is starting to lose some steam right about now. The commitment to football on the west side of the country has been pretty lacking. I think the "what if the B12 cannibalized the P12?" notion is starting to look stronger.You are assuming we will be in the XII for the next TV deal, but if so I agree it would sweeten the pot. OK would drool over playing them again, it was a great game for both schools, much like Texas and Arkansas, a real family against family affair.
Texas is benefitting right now from being in a position where they can call the shots.
Totally agree that Arkansas and Nebraska in the B12 would be the most fun, ideally more decisions would be made like that.
