NCAA Conference Realignment: Source Says '50 To 60 Percent' Chance Oklahoma, Texas Heading To Pac-12

Oklahoma president David Boren threw NCAA conference realignment speculation into high gear on Friday when he announced his school is weighing its options with regards to either staying in the Big XII or heading to another conference.

Late Friday, Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com added fuel to the fire. 

When I texted a key source close to Texas Friday night if the Longhorns were preparing to head to the Pac-12 with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, the source texted back, "Leaning that way." The source later said there was a "50 to 60 percent" chance those schools would end up in the Pac-12.

Needless to say, things don't look good for the Big XII, and certainly not for Pitt's chances of heading there as a replacement for Texas A&M. If Texas and Oklahoma aren't serious about trying to make that league work, Pitt shouldn't be either, and should quickly dismiss any suggestion of jumping the Big East ship for the uncertainty that reigns in Big XII country.
