College athletics – most notably football – is likely headed for wide-sweeping changes. And according to one ESPN report, if Nebraska goes, then the Big 12 dissolves.
That report has Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State joining Colorado as newcomes to the Pac-10, with Kansas, Baylor, Kansas State, Iowa State and Missouri being left to fend for themselves.
I realize college athletics is governed by the almight dollar, and the almighty dollar is generated moreso from football than by anything else.
But I’m surprised the Big Ten isn’t clamoring to get Kansas in its conference. The Jayhawks aren’t bad in football, and what a basketball program that would be to add. It would be a coup for the Big Ten to get Nebraska and Kansas.
I have a feeling we’ll find out a lot more Friday. Nebraska is expected to make a decision.
