The Report also states Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Colorado, are all prepared to move to the PAC-10, making that League the First 16-team Super Conference for Football.

This could all become official very soon.

It could have untold ramifications for schools like the University of Memphis, who's Basketball is Strong but Football is trying to find its' way.

But, if schools like Hoops Powerhouse Kansas are totally being left out of the Super Conference equation, it doesn't bode well for the U of M.
