Nebraska made it official, accepting an invitation to the Big-10/12 today.
The Mt. West Conference, which previously decided to not invite Boise St. for a while, has changed their mind, and invited the Broncos in as the tenth team. Boise St. promptly accepted.
This has to bee seen as a by-product of Colorado's move to the Pac-Integer, as the only way that Boise St. wouldn't be an upgrade to the Mt. West would be if some package of an odd-numbered Big 12 stragglers were coming their way, and Colorado would be one of them, probably because they were forced into it due to politics in Texas.
So the Buff's bold move to be the first to move also made the obvious option for Boise even more obvious to the rest of the Mt. West.
It could be Tuesday when the next step officially happens, when we find out who else is coming west. Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will join the Pacific-Integer Conference when a formal offer is made, but Texas A&M is holding up the process.
The Aggies appear to have some alums that think striking out on their own for the SEC might be better for them, and have been given 72 hours to decide whether they will stick with their traditional rival Texas or not.
Missouri and Kansas are probably as interested in the decision as anyone, as the Pac-Integer wants to be an even integer, and either could fill out the deal. Both would be much more attractive than Baylor, or even Utah, given that four other teams in their time zone would be in.
Missouri would prefer the Big-10/12/... but clearly their fate there depends on what happens with Notre Dame in conjunction with the pending raid on the Big East, which the Big Ten has said will be addressed at the end of next week.
