Empathically NO, NO, NO!! Texas and Oklahoma don't join anything unless they come in to RULE. The Pac 10 was once what a college conference should be except USC, and recently Oregon got its hands dirty. But this will gobble up the smaller traditional Pac 10 schools like Washington State. Once upon a time, a conference was about school spirit and local rivalries. Now it's all about $$$.
