It seems Texas A&M is unsure about where it wants to play in the future. The Aggies are reportedly considering a move to the Southeastern Conference or the Pac-10.
The Pac-10 already has Colorado in the fold for the start of the 2012-13 season and is ready to bring in Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to form a 16-team conference.
It Texas A&M balks, the Pac-10 looks as if it will turn to Utah.
But what about Kansas?
Obviously football and television markets are driving the realignment moves, but the Jayhawks have a rich basketball tradition that would marketable when Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott renegotiates the next TV deal. Kansas won the 2008 NCAA tournament (above) for the third time in school history.
Bruce Pascoe at the Arizona Daily Star makes a strong case for the Jayhawks.
SATURDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Big 12 Commissioner Don Beebe is giving up without a fight and tells Fanhouse.com the conference can survive with just 10 members.
USAToday details the financial troubles plaguing the Pac-10. Among the six major conferences, the Pac-10 generated the fewest revenue dollars in 2009.
Kiwi Gardner, a 5-7 point guard from Manteca, Calif, told Rivals.com Washington is the top school on his wish list, but he hasn’t received an offer from the Huskies. Arizona is also recruiting him and he’s gotten an offer from San Francisco and Old Dominion.
— Rivals.com is also reporting Ryan Anderson, a Long Beach (Calif.) Poly power forward, is being recruited by UCLA, California, Washington State and Arizona. He also likes Gonzaga, but said the Bulldogs haven’t shown much interest yet.
