Pac-10 Expansion: Will Offers To Six Big 12 Schools Happen This Weekend?

James Walker@BRJamesWalkerAnalyst IIJune 4, 2010

The Pac-10 purportedly is ready to offer Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Colorado invitations to join the conference this weekend during meetings in San Francisco.

Also, Missouri has allegedly stated that it will not commit to remaining in the Big 12 Conference.

Could this be the end of the Big 12 Conference 14 years after its inception?  Will the dominoes begin to quickly fall?  If the any of the above schools leave the Big 12, what affect will it have on other conferences?  Will others be compelled to make similar offers?

What is the likelihood that any of these six schools would accept the Pac-10's invitations?  How many schools would be allowed to join? 

These and other questions need to be answered.

Rumors also have the SEC considering expansion, and Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma were allegedly on the list of potential invitees.

If the above is true, which conference would Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma prefer joining?

We will have to sit back and see how it all unfolds this coming weekend and the coming weeks. 

One thing is for certain—the landscape of college football may dramatically change, and the Big 12 may not survive.
