PAC-12 is saying now that has decided to stay at 12 members. Texas, Tech, Ok, and Ok St have been giving the "hand". I think it is all about the Longhorn Network. PAC-12 has a equal profit sharing clause. Texas don't want to share. I hope the PAC-12 takes the others and leaves Texas out to dry.

A guy called Finebaum yesterday and related a conversation he had with a prominate guy in Texas. He told the caller A&M was a done deal and gave him the date of the announcement which was the actual date. He said Missouri was next, that it was a done deal. Then Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, done deals also.

I know, a Finebaum caller, but the guy seemed very reliable and truthful and Finebaum made a comment about it was extremely interesting.

Also a guy from Russellville, AR called. He started talking talking about the Arky-bammer game and started off saying Troy probably has a better passing game than Alabama upon which Finebaum cut him off and went to the next caller.

Pac-12 says no further expansion
By RALPH D. RUSSO , 09.21.11, 01:08 AM EDT

NEW YORK --

Twelve is enough for the Pac-12, putting the Big 12 in position to survive yet another round of conference realignment.

The Pac-12 presidents and chancellors decided late Tuesday night not to expand.

"After careful review we have determined that it is in the best interests of our member institutions, student-athletes and fans to remain a 12-team conference," Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement. "While we have great respect for all of the institutions that have contacted us, and certain expansion proposals were financially attractive, we have a strong conference structure and culture of equality that we are committed to preserve."

Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech were considering a potential move from the Big 12 to the Pac-12. After expanding from the Pac-10 with new members Utah and Colorado last year, members of the new Pac-12 decided not to stretch the league farther east.

"We were not surprised by the Pac 12's decision to not expand at this time," Oklahoma President David Boren said. "Even though we had decided not to apply for membership this year, we have developed a positive relationship with the leadership of the conference and we have kept them informed of the progress we've been making to gain agreement from the Big 12 for changes which will make the conference more stable in the future.

"Conference stability has been our first goal and we look forward to achieving that goal through continued membership in the Big 12 Conference."

Finebaum knows where his bread and butter is and to not slap the hand that feeds you. That's obviously why he did what he did.
