SAN FRANCISCO -- The Pac-12 Conference is standing pat for now.

The league's presidents and chancellors voted late Tuesday night to reaffirm their decision to stay at a dozen members. Commissioner Larry Scott says "after careful review we have determined that it is in the best interests of our member institutions, student-athletes and fans to remain a 12-team conference."

Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech were among those considering a potential move from the Big 12. After expanding from the Pac-10 with new members Utah and Colorado last year, members of the new Pac-12 won't give them the chance.

The league already negotiated a landmark 12-year television contract with Fox and ESPN worth about $3 billion. And it appears plenty happy at a dozen."

This is very interesting. Makes me wonder if we jumped too soon. Big 12 might still gobble a Big East member to replace A&M though. This would appear to put the brakes on UConn or anyone else jumping to the ACC anytime soon though.

I'll admit I am unnerved by this. It calls into question the very underlying premise that drove our move.

Probably heard that 9 schools had applied to the ACC and he didn't want to be in a Big East without Pitt and UConn. I don't know, I prefer the Big East, but I'm primarily a basketball guy.

Don't be stupid. You want to be in a league w/ 20 teams and no TV contract?

It would appear that Texas didn't cave on sharing the $$ from the Longhorn Network. This makes their move (alone) to the ACC more likely, IMO.

ACC will not cave on revenue sharing either.

I don't think the ACC will cave either ... they would just as soon remain a 14 team league than give up major football revenues b/c Texas doesn't wish to give up their lucrative TV deals. Remember that the entire realignment was based on football and the revenues they generate. The move by the PAC-12 and Texas (if the rumor is true that the deal was quashed b/c of Texas) will only encourage ND. If Texas won't give up their monies why should ND? I definitely think you now take ND out of any ACC expansion equation.
