More Bad News For Big 12: Texas Regents Schedule Meeting For Monday To Discuss Conference Alignment

Not to be outdone by Oklahoma’s meeting of regents Monday, University of Texas regents have scheduled their own meeting on the same day to discuss the Big 12 and conference realignment.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram quotes sources from Texas:

A Big 12 source said today that the situation regarding Texas is "very fluid" at present.

Texas sources said the school’s potential options include a move to an expanded Atlantic Coast Conference, where Texas could keep its 20-year, $300 million contract with ESPN for the Longhorn Network. A move to the Pac-12 – probably in conjunction with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech – remains under discussion but would require tweaking the Longhorn Network to become one of the league’s regional networks.

Jimmy Burch also notes that the Big Ten doesn’t appear to be a viable option for Texas, because the notion of altering LHN or the Big Ten Network such that the two could coexist doesn’t sound viable.

Next week should be another wild week in conference realignment.
