We all know that the Big 12 is the most split up conference right now. Oklahoma wants to leave because of the Longhorn Network and they can't come up with a solution on expansion. Do you think the B12 splits up? I could see Oklahoma going to the B1G and Texas going to the ACC. I could see the ACC adding Notre Dame as a full member and bringing in Texas and the B1G bringing in a former Big 12 school to pair with Oklahoma. Thoughts on the future of the Big 12?

Right now Notre Dame is Independent for football. Based on what you said, I think the Big 12 is falling apart.

Where else would Texas go if the Big 12 splits?

The B1G is not an option because they are waiting for Oklahoma and Boren will not allow Texas to follow them. The SEC is not an option because then Texas will be blocked by former Big 12 Schools that left for the SEC because of problems with Texas again. For example, TA&M left the Big 12 because of problems with Texas. Plus the SEC is set. And the Pac-12 is set also. On top of that, Texas isn't in the region of the Pac-12. Oh, and ACC schools want Texas and Notre Dame to join as a full member.

Granted, it is all speculation.

The B1G stretches from Nebraska to New Jersey, why wouldn't Texas fit in the ACC?
