Pac 12, Oklahoma tell Texas to fold the Longhorn Network in five corners ...


and stick it where the sun don't shine. God bless you, Julia Sugarbaker.

Here's the statement from Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott: “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. 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. With new landmark TV agreements and plans to launch our innovative television networks, we are going to focus solely on these great assets, our strong heritage and the bright future in front of us.”

Here's the key phrase: "we have a strong ... culture of equality that we are committed to preserve."

In other words, we don't want any part of your unabashed self-interest, Texas.


Meanwhile, see the linked article on Oklahoma. Short and sweet. Fire Dan Beebe (Big XII Commissioner) and put the reins on the Longhorn Network.

My questions: with options eastward seemingly dwindling, does the SEC look to make a package deal with Missouri, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State? Is the expansion parade officially on hold? And, as Clay Travis tweeted a few minutes ago, "Odds the ACC presidents try to give Pitt and Syracuse back now?"

Wow. What is next?
