Lots more Twitter servers roiling, belching steam and falling over.

My name's not Chris.

Apparently Dave Sibley, Bob Bullock and Ann Richards are kicking ass, seance style.

Duck Beat Quacker George Schroeder:

Baylor Wants A Piece

More Pac-16 smoke: Just got e-mail from Baylor sports info pushing interview with AD on possible inclusion instead of Colorado.

Stewart Mandel from SI was also excited so he echoed and added:

Wow! It's on. RT @GeorgeSchroeder: Just got e-mail from Baylor sports info pushing interview with AD on possible inclusion instead Colorado.

Stewart also apparently saw this coming a mile away.

As I wrote yesterday, political/legislative pressure inevitable re: jilted schools like Baylor.

Then I read the Doc Sat piece here.

"If you're going to have an exported commodity involved in this, do you think we're going to allow a school from outside the state of Texas to replace one of our schools in the Big 12 South? I don't think so. We're already at work on this," said a high-ranking member of the Texas Legislature who asked not to be identified.

The source said there is a block of 15 legislators who will work to make sure Baylor - not Colorado - is invited to the Pac-10.

"If the Pac-10 wants Texas, and we know they do, they may have to take all of our Texas schools," the source said, adding that Texas Tech has also benefited from political inclusion on the invite list.

So, genius Barking Carnival-goers - is there political will and capital with which Texas must contend or not?

horninexile has promised another story about the research dollars Texas must consider. This and a few little birds we've heard from, yes unnamed sources, still make me think this Pac 10 stuff is all a feint and we're heading to Evanston for games in November. Of course these people really have names, ones you know, but not ones we're going to tell you.

Late tonight, hoping for Pac 10, putting money on Big Ten.

Give us your thoughts.
