|Colorado Flips First Card as Conference Chaos Begins
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Colorado has made the first move in what could be a wild ride to realignment by leaving the Big 12 for the Pac-10.
Next up are Nebraska and Missouri, which are expected to decide by Friday whether to stay in the Big 12. Nebraska may leave for the Big Ten, but Missouri's decision is more complicated since it apparently has no such invitation.
The Pac-10 also could be ready to add Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and the two Oklahoma schools to form a 16-team megaconference. That would leave Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State without many options.
And that might not be the end of realignment.
The Big Ten has shown interest in Notre Dame and could look to pilfer schools from the Big East to form its own 16-team league.
