ESPN’s Joe Schad is reporting that the commissioner of the Pac-10 conference has informed him that the Texas Longhorns have declined an invitation to join the Pac-10. Schad notes that the potential Longhorn TV network was a major influence on UT’s decision to stay put. Assuming Texas A&M decides to stay as well, the Big 12 should remain intact as a 10-team league.
Update! UT has confirmed Schad's report, has officially declined invitation to Pac-10.
