Don't take it as gospel the University of Texas and Texas A&M will be joining the PAC-10. Here's what we know. In a perfect world Texas would still be in the Big-12. The Aggies would also like to remain in the Big-12 but their second option, and some say 1-b, would be joining the SEC. Texas has never let known what their opinion is. These two schools are sitting down to make sure they're on the same page. It's these discussions that will decide if the super conference of the last 2 decades remains on top, or if a new contender emerges out West. That's what we know, it's what we don't know that makes this story so interesting.
The SEC keeping quite along with the schools continuing to be mum means nothing is final yet. What has been reported is that the Pac-10 has offered, not who has said they are going. Of course you get the blanket if "a" occurs, in this case a would rerepresent the converence failing, then "we are all moving to such and such conference by a peon wo doesn't have the last word . The last word will come out later this week when Texas announces where they are going. While the 4 other schools are in the hoping business that Texas comes along with them to the Pac-10 I would put money on Texas deciding they are a better fit with the SEC. I put the odds of Texas and Texas A&M joining the SEC as 3-2. 5-2 they join the Pac 10. Don't forget money talks, and for every decision made over the next 48 hours if you follow the money you'll find the reason why the choice was made.
