Seven Reasons Why You Should Be Upset About Texas and the Big 12

So the news has been broken by now, and we all know it: The University of Texas at Austin is staying in the Big 12 Conference, despite the defections of Colorado to the Pac-10 and Nebraska to the Big Ten (For purposes of this article, I will use the current official names of the conferences rather than speculative ones such as Pac-11, Pac-12, etc.).

For some, it was a joyous occasion: The college landscape would not be altered too significantly, and with the exception of Nebraska's history with the old Big 8 Conference, few rivalries would be lost. Money did not reign supreme after all.

This is a list of seven reasons why I am irritated with Texas for preventing that seismic shift from happening.
