My last blog, “Goodbye, Big Twelve!” lamented the death of “my” collegiate conference. Just a few short days ago, it looked as though the top football and basketball conference in the nation was about to dissolve, following the departure of the Universities of Colorado and Nebraska. But, not so fast! When the “big dog” of our league — the University of Texas — decided to stay, instead of jumping to the Pac-10, the remaining schools followed. The outcome — and twisted irony — is that the Big Twelve now has ten teams, while the Big Ten has 12 teams. Go figure.
