I'm really surprised the Big 12 allowed Texas to bully them around. It's a unfair advantage allowing one school to make outside contracts like the Long Horn Network. It gives a huge advantage over other schools in funds and recruiting. The PAC12 has built in rules not allowing this sort of thing. If your independent like ND you can do what ever you want. If the Big 12 blows up there is no one to blame but Big 12 themselves for allowing Texas to bully the conference..... A&M is doing the smartest thing by leaving. Other teams should follow and let Texas wallow in it's own muck.
