Not so fast on Texas in the Big 10

Written by Juan Cena on Saturday, February 13 2010 and posted in SWRT

The talk about Texas joining the Big 10 might just be talk. Kirk Bohls of The Austin American-Statesman pretty much pours cold water on the idea. According to his sources, the move doesn't have a chance of happening. The reasons being the long-distance the Longhorns and it's followers would have to travel to away games, the extra amount of time lost in class by students by the move (stop snickering), and that the Texas legislature might demand Texas A&M be forced to go along for the ride. (Don't laugh at that one either. Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, is an Aggie.)
Texas in the Big 10 didn't make much sense anyway. Even with all the money the Big 10 brings in, it would cost a lot of money for Texas to haul its various sports programs up to compete closer to the states closer Canadian border. That includes the programs that don't make money like the football program (which means most of them). It's one of those cases where the idea sounds more sexy than practical.
