Once again, the Senator is spot-on with his analysis:
Throughout this latest round of conference realignment shuffling, I keep wondering why Texas and Oklahoma want to leave the Big 12 for the Pac-12. When you think about it, they’ve got a fabulous set up: a 10-team conference means there’s fewer slices to the revenue pie to serve, no playoff game virtually assures that if neither has a season go in the tank, they’ll be playing in BCS games, the conference as now configured is geographically compact, etc. They lose all that if they run off to form a Pac-16.
The problem is that Texas doesn’t seem to know when it has a good thing going for it. Or at least it didn’t until now.
