Texas Staying Put; NCAA Landscape Stabilizes (for now)

Texas is staying put in the New Big 10 or the old Big 12 or whatever that are going to be called now.  That leaves the Pac-10 with 11 teams and looking for at least one more school.  The old Big 10 or new Big 12 could still be looking too; especially if Notre Dame comes calling.  We could still see a Big 16 that includes Notre Dame, Syracuse, Pitt, and potentially Maryland or Rutgers.  Such a switch now seems unlikely since Notre Dame seems content with its TV deal.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that this is over.  It's more like a stay of execution.  The need for greed will come back soon.  If it is not the conferences fucking with the rivalries and casting college basketball into the trash; then it will be the NCAA  expanding the tournament to 96 teams after 2011.

Apparently, having the perfect sporting event is just too much for some people to handle.
