Now that Nebraska is (apparently) calling the Texas bluff, it will be interesting to see if Texas and its corresponding sycophants will actually bolt to the Pac 10.
Short of a three year windfall of cash, i don't see this as being advantageous for Texas. They have to share power with USC, UCLA, Washington, AZ. They have to travel farther. Culturally, whoever suggested the Right Wing and Left Wing divisions is right on. It limits their options for a future potential conference move.
I might be wrong, but it seems like a bluff. Texas would be better off propping up the Big 12 for a few more years, then seeing what the landscape looks like after that.

ISU had 6 bowl appearances, including 5 in 6 years between 2000-2005. If not the best success, definitely the best in quite some time.
If the NCAA had the sheer number of bowls during the Johnny Majors and Earle Bruce eras, those teams would be vastly superior to the ones from this decade, especially the Bruce teams, who went 8-3 3 straight seasons.
The Big 12 era is far from being ISU's most successful run in football.
