Texas could officially announce soon a commitment to remaining in a 10-team Big 12, a conference school source said this morning. The high-ranking source, who is closely involved in keeping the conference intact, says he believes that Texas will make a good faith proposal to turn its back on a Pac-10 bid and keep the Big 12 in business even without Nebraska and Colorado. A second conference source also confirmed that understanding of the situation.

Independent confirmation of Texas looking at keeping the Big 12 together So now we have the Dallas Morning News corroborating Chip Brown's report about Texas considering keeping the Big 12 together. It goes on to say that the sharp increase in TV money would come from Fox Sports specifically. Supposedly the prospect of a UT television network and increased travel costs as a result of not having A&M in the Pac-16 were the reason for the change of mind. It remains to be seen how good the faith will be in Texas's "good faith proposal." Nebraska's idea of a good faith proposal was to have everyone assign their media rights to the Big 12 to prove their commitment, something everyone knew Texas would not agree to. Will Texas propose something workable, or something it knows the rest won't agree to like Nebraska did? For his part, Gene Stallings likes the idea of a ten team Big 12. UPDATE If the Dallas Morning News isn't far enough away from Texas's athletics department for your taste, how does the New York Times sound? Pete Thamel also has a source saying Texas is "on the cusp" of a deal to keep the ten-team Big 12 together.
