ESPN misses the mark on Big 12

The big story in college sports in recent days has been expansion, and ESPN clearly missed on this one Monday. The WWL's Joe Schad reported that four schools, including Texas, were leaving for the Pac-10, which already had grabbed Colorado from the league.

"The departure of Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to the Pac-10 is imminent, four sources within the Big 12 said Monday," ESPN reported.

"One source said commissioner Dan Beebe's last-minute plan to save the conference has 'zero' chance to succeed. Another source said it is 'very unlikely' to succeed."

Time for ESPN to get a new source, as Beebe had a better than zero chance after all. Later Monday, the Big 12 ... er, 10? ... announced that Texas and nine other schools were staying.
