Fast forward to two or ten or thirty years in the future. The Big 12 has lost Colorado to the Pac 10 and Missouri to the Big 10 and replaced them with Universities A and B, both of which are marginal in both academics and athletics. Texas has just finished an 8-5 season, recruiting is beginning to suffer and the conference is now on the verge of losing Nebraska to the Big 10. The national economy has taken a toll on athletic and academic budgets and the Powers that be have decided that UT must make a move towards conference realignment. President Powers (or whomever) has decided to take a straw poll of UT fans in order to determine which direction the fan base favors in an eventual move.
A previous poll indicated that over 80% of voters disapprove of a current move to the Big 10. My question is this: If the situation dictated that Texas must consider realigning itself with another conference, which conference would you choose to join?
