I want this to be right just to see ESPN get proven wrong once again.

So Texas and A&M are staying.

ESPN ends up with egg on their faces again.

Last I checked, this was not final and the regents were meeting to decide what to do.

Larry Scott has said that Texas declined the invite.

It's actually ESPN that stepped in with this massive TV deal. They didn't want to lose college football from their network. If the six teams from the Big 12 South would have gone to the Pac 10 (16), Fox Sports would have had rights to all those games. The Big Ten Network has the Big Ten, of course.

This is a windfall of money to a cash-strapped university. Unreal! It literally feels like Iowa State just got a big, anonymous, annual donor!

I doubt that ESPN is the player that the Big 12 was talking to.

ESPN was definitely involved in this.
