Is it a delay tactic? Use alliance for now and take in $ from UT and UT-Norman exit fees in the interim, and then formally merge as GOR expires?
Why merge and not get their money when you can accomplish the same thing and call it a scheduling alliance and get their money.
Then...when GOR expires, you have viewership data to bargain the the next Media contract with, which would be based on a merger, then you take it to Nebraska and show them how lucrative and powerful that merger and resulting Conference would be with them in it.
Plus...OSUBis in a position of advamtage...
1) we are the most attractive team left in the Big 12 so we would get good matchups with Pac teams
2) We don't have to replace both OU and Texas.
We just have to replace Texas. Unlike the rest of the Big 12 teams, we can still play OU if we want, then dictate, to the best we can, what type of matchups we'd prefer with Pac teams to balance our schedlue
