'cause I don't know enough about the history of conferences to know how realignment is going to impact... well... women's basketball, it's interesting reading different takes on the (presumed) upcoming shakeup. From the SportsEconomist blog: Go Big Red! Or is it Stay Big Red?
The Big 12 has reportedly given an ultimatum to Nebraska (and Missouri) to decide if they are going to board the Big 12 plane or if they are going to board a different (Big 10?) plane. The Pac 10 has reportedly all but offered half the Big 12 (Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Colorado) to join forces with it. What’s the deciding factor in either case? From Mike DeArmond of the Kansas City Star:On a side note - I pity my friends Lesli and Peter who are marrying this weekend. Lesli is a third-generation Husker and her entire family (including the fourth generation) are Big Red-ites. How's anyone going to be able to focus on that vow thing when Nebraska might be moving?!?!?
