All eyes on Texas

First, published the Pac-10’s alleged plans to invite six Big 12 teams led by Texas, which would make the Longhorns the Eastern anchor of a new 16-team league. Then the Columbus Dispatch exposed details of emails between Ohio State president Gordon Gee and Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany discussing a Texas-Big Ten union. Don’t forget UT AD DeLoss Dodds’ two-way talkā€”he says he wants the Big 12 to thrive, but adds Texas won’t get lost in the shuffle. And then there’s the SEC, lurking and reacting to what its peer conferences think and do.
