Ha! All your Texas are belong to us! Our buddy Adam Rittenberg at ESPN has the scoop on some outside confirmation that the Big Ten has indeed contacted Texas and Texas A&M about Big Ten membership.
"[Washington Athletic Director Steve] Woodward also talked about expansion and said the Pac-10 and the Big Ten have reached out to officials at Texas and Texas A&M. 'I'd be surprised if our office is not in contact with them,' [Woodward] said. 'I'm sure those conversations have happened and are taking place.'
Aha! Now my Texas to the Big Ten piece doesn't seem to far fetched, does it? Austin here I come. And Peter, you're buying.
