The college sports landscape could be on the verge of some very drastic changes and that could involve the Longhorns, Aggies, Red Raiders and the entire Big 12. And it's all about money. The Big 12 commissioner has been trying to put out fires, but there's no consensus among member schools. One scenario has the Pac 10 that would include Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Colorado. They would join Arizona and Arizona State in one division.

If that happened, Nebraska and Missouri would likely go to the Big 10, but the Big 10 wants Texas, too, and if Texas goes somewhere, they'll bring Tech, the Aggies and Oklahoma with them.

In either scenario, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State could be on the outside looking in. It's all about money. The Pac 10 and Big 10 pays each school between $10 and $13 million more a year than does the Big 12.
