For college football fans still feeling the after effects of the conference expansion collapse:
If Texas A&M decided to go with Texas to the Pac-10, we might have had complete upheaval and the beginning of massive college realignment, resulting in four, 16-team mega conferences. As it stands now, realignment appears to have been averted for at least the next seven years (until the ABC/ESPN contract expires).
For a complete rundown of how the Big 12-Pac 10 deal, along with the SEC involvement, emerged and submerged, largely in a matter of days, along with a list of the winners and losers, visit Orangebloods.
University of Louisville fans must remain curious, however, about the reported conference call for Big East presidents and athletic directors later this week. Serious issues still needing attention.
