Big Ten making overtures to … Texas

The Big Ten still has its eyes on Notre Dame. Notre Dame's deal with NBC does not stack up with revenue generated from the BTN. They love their independence and that intangable maybe enough to stall a move to Big 10. TX looks great for the Big 10 and despite popular belief is not tied to A&M or Baylor - remember the Pac 10 almost got TX in 1990s, but Stanford said no (PAC 10 requires an all in vote). Not so smart Stanford. Go read some books.
As for a TX boy not wanting to play in East Lancing or Bloomington, maybe so, but The Horseshoe, the Big House, or Happy Valley are a college player's dream venues- Mack B - not so much, at least in the same season.
