Was this ever a consideration?
What he said. Texas thought they could ramrod the ACC, just like they will try to ramrod the Pac 17.Texas was interested in going to a 16 team pod scenario, where we kept our 12 and they added them and 3 friends, presumably TTech, Ok, Ok St. But that scenario went out the window on Sunday. That's why they're pissed off - they were trying to flirt with the ACC and drop hints about it as leverage with the Pac 10. Now it's basically either Pac 10 or nothing, because nobody else will let them keep their precious LHN.
They tried to play Swofford, and Swofford played them instead.
I'm not a Swofford fan, but the move this weekend was fantastic, presuming it leads to a north/south ACC realignment.
Texas was trying to get Ok in on the ACC as of Friday. Went out the window Sunday obviously.Texas was considered and was considering (I still think they were just using the ACC for leverage). OU never was in the ACC talks. OU has only been associated with the PAC-12 talks.
