The moves, both public and behind the scenes, continue for some major schools and conferences as they gauge the landscape of change in college athletics.
On Monday, Board of Regents officials at Texas and Oklahoma have given their school presidents the authority to act on a possible proposal to move to the Pac 12, with the chance that Texas Tech and Oklahoma State could also move to the new league. However, any move has not been approved by the Pac 12 nor has any invitation been given to the schools in the Big 12 to move.
Sources also confirm that the Big 12 and the Big East, two leagues that could be ravaged by teams leaving for other conferences, could be looking to a merger. And the ACC, already getting new schools with Syracuse and Pittsburgh, could expand to 16 teams as Connecticut apparently is wanting to join the league as well.
And what about TCU? That school is supposed to be going to the Big East but how many schools will be left in the Big East if expansion takes place? The Mountain West Conference, where TCU now resides, could move to try to keep TCU.
