Powers, Boren get authority to move forward with realignment

University of Texas regents have given president Bill Powers Jr. the authority to negotiate a move out of the Big 12 to a new conference.
Before the vote, Powers told the regents that the school should
be able to explore options, which he says could include staying in
the Big 12.
Any move to a new conference would have to be submitted to the
regents for final approval.
Regents at Oklahoma made a similar move earlier Monday, giving
President David Boren the same decision-making authority.
Texas A&M has already announced that it plans to leave the Big
12 and pursue membership in the SEC.

    You know it is really sad to see such a great conference being split apart all because the University of Texas had to have their precious longhorn network that so far only one TV network has picked up! I find it very funny that not only has it killed the Big XII but most all of the UT fans can not even watch the Longhorns play on TV, unless you are one of the small few with Verizon TV!!
