Expansion News, Nebraska to Big Ten, Big XII to dissolve, Pac-16 Soon

Well, well, well.  There has been so much news on the expansion lately that I will let some others fill you in.  All signs point to Nebraska going to the Big Ten in a much anticipated "deadline" that supposed Texas Longhorns and the rest of the Bix XII put on the Cornhuskers and Missouri. 

 

The departure of Nebraska to the Big Ten will decimate the Big XII and leave the other 11 schools looking for a move.  There is LOTS of talk about the Pac-10 expanding with Colorado, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.  This would leave Baylor, Iowa State and Kansas State out in the cold.  What does this mean for the Pac-10, or should I say Pac-16?

 

 

The Pac-16 will probably divide into two divisions, most likely East/West.  It would mirror the current Big XII system of North/South right now where everyone plays in their division each year and each team plays 2 teams from the other division each year as well.  With 16 teams in the whole thing, it is plausible that a team in the East division could only play a team in the West division every four years. 

 

HINT #1: CU having a "not so secret meeting" on Tuesday.

HINT #2: Chip Brown is a God. Nebraska to Big Ten.

HINT #3: Chicago Tribune Calling Expansion to Happen "In Steps."

HINT #4: A Must Read from Bring On The Cats

HINT #5: Big Ten Expansion News

This is all going to play out in the next few days as Nebraska is set to announce its decision on Friday.  Once this is done, other schools are going to have to fall in line if they don't want to get left out in the cold. My guess is this alignment:

West Division East Division
USC ARIZONA
CAL ARIZONA STATE
WASHINGTON TEXAS
WASHINGTON ST. TEXAS A&M
OREGON OKLAHOMA
OREGON STATE TEXAS TECH
STANFORD OKLAHOMA STATE
UCLA COLORADO
