Pac-10 Commish Says He Had A Deal, Texas Wanted Texas A&M To Come Along

Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott said he had a deal with Texas to join the Pac-10 before things fell apart.

According to Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com, citing sources, Texas wouldn't do a deal unless Texas A&M was part of the move.

Whether that's the case or not, we'll never know. But I have an idea of how things worked out.

Brown obviously has Texas sources and my guess is that they fed him that info to win in the court of public opinion. Texas is already looking like the hero here for saving the Big 12. Now, they can add another punch to their rivals by saying they were the ones that didn't want to lose their long-standing rivalry with A&M and they saved the relationship.

I wouldn't be surprised to see more reports like this coming from Brown making Texas look like the hero.
