If NU and MU bolt for the Big 10, I say good riddance. I have seen the Pac 10 and Big 12 are talking maybe this is posturing to create pressure on the Big 10 courted teams, but I really believe the ultimate super conference could be in the works. These two conferences could combine to create the Big West. 20 teams, great athletics, great scholastic schools and every major market west of the Mississippi. The conference would be an immediate candidate for a HUGE TV deal. A Big West would be a nightmare scenario for the SEC, Big 10(11,14... whatever) and Big East. Personally I would hate to see the Big 12 split up but if it does this would be the best option for KU, K-State, ISU, OSU and the Texas schools not named the Longhorns. Thoughts?
