TMZ Sports has reported that Oklahoma State is likely to accept a bid to move to the Pac-10. Earlier Thursday, Colorado accepted an invitation to join the Pac-10.790 the Zone in Atlanta reported Thursday afternoon that the SEC is offering invitations to Texas A&M and Virginia Tech to join the conference.KCTV5's sources also said that some Big 12 officials are saying decisions on which deals Big 12 schools take invitations by the end of the day Thursday, although the deals may not be officially announced.Those decisions would leave the University of Kansas, Kansas State University and the University of Missouri with Baylor, Texas Tech and Iowa State in the Big 12.

Oh boy, there goes two of the B10 slots. I thought Texas and company were on their way to the PAC-10 (following Colorado) not B10. This might change things a bit in SU's chances of getting pulled into the B10. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg in the conference reshuffling (as others have mentioned) and we will be down to 4 super-conferences by the end of the World Cup.

So, does SU still gets into the B10 now? Personally, I don't think so. With this move I think the geography issue is now certainly against the B10 as compared to the ACC. But, weirder things have happened.
