Since we're reasonably expecting a fair amount of breaking news throughout the day, let's use this as out realignment open thread. As always, with this forum in which to discuss your opinions on realignment, please think twice about adding a separate and probably redundant FanPost or FanShot which will merely bump someone else's post off the front page.
And, please, UT, do the right thing. Even if we're right and visionary about the LHN, if no one else wants to play ball with us, we have to face reality and compromise. Don't let a month-old network be what keeps us from forming a conference affiliation for the decades to come with a group of elite schools, whether on the Pacific coast, Atlantic coast or in the Midwest. Don't leave us slumming with Baylor and Houston over a damn television network.
