Winners and losers in the Big 12 game of chicken


The Winner: Texas. Hands down, Texas wins the huge game of chicken that the Big 12's meltdown and subsequent rescue has turned out to be. It gets the chance to have its own network, it keeps the rivalry with Texas A&M (which won't be bolting for the SEC), and it pretty much solidifies itself as the true power in the Big 12.

The Loser: Pretty much everybody else. But more specifically:

Dan Bebe. Even in saving the Big 12 (for now), his reputation has gone through the ringer. He has pretty much become the Brad Childress to Texas' Brett Favre. And if he can't back up his promises, all he's done is postpone the inevitable. Bebe pretty much need to just go find a tattoo parlor and get "Property of the University of Texas" tattooed on his rear end. Or maybe his forehead. It might even be more appropriate.

The rest of the remaining Big 12 schools. They've pretty much become subservient to Texas in how the conference is run. They might as well add "UT" in front of their names (UT Oklahoma, UT Kansas, UT Texas Tech, etc.) Nebraska and Colorado will be lucky they got out when they did. Unless they end up deciding to come back to the Big 12 and take their place at the kiddie table with the rest of the gang.

The Pac-10. So much for the mega-conference. Guess it'll have to be satisfied with Colorado and whatever morsels it can raid from the WAC and Mountain West. Speaking of which.

The Mountain West Conference. The chance to pick up the the remaining Big 12 North schools is gone. Worse, the Pac-10 will probably come looking for Utah. Meaning even after scoring Boise St., the MWC will probably end up back at square one in trying to get that elusive automatic BCS bid.

The SEC. It doesn't get Texas A&M. Oh wait, that actually is a win. No worries about an odd number of teams or having to possible realign the conference divisions. And no having to deal with a train wreck of a program that's third or fourth best in its state. Speaking of which...

Texas A&M. Maybe it is appropriate that the Aggies' mascot is a female collie. Because now and forever, they're Texas' you-know-what.
