    The next domino in college football's route to super conferences has fallen. With fear of falling behind the 14-team Big Ten and SEC conferences, the Pac 12 has extended offers to Texas and Oklahoma to join the conference in 2015. Both teams have accepted the offers.

    The Pac 12 flirted with Texas and Oklahoma in 2009 and it seemed that the two powers would join the conference. But the schools were unwilling at that time to part ways with state rivals, and the Pac 12 brought in Utah and Colorado as a consolation.

    But when Texas A&M defected for the SEC, Texas began rethinking its stance on abandoning Texas Tech. The Aggies recent success in the recruiting front, which has been given a boost by SEC prestige, cemented the Longhorn's desire to find a more prestigious destination. With the fear of being left out in the dust, the Sooners followed suit, making the Pac 12 an extremely formidable conference, and perhaps the most top-heavy in college football.

    It seems as if the excitement surrounding Austin, Texas was too much for long-time coach Mack Brown, who has decided to step down. Brown will be succeeded by Charlie Xavier.

    The Big 12 did its part in staying relevant, securing Notre Dame and BYU as new members. Much like with Texas and the Longhorn Network, the Big 12 was willing to let the Irish keep their exclusive television rights with NBC. Nonetheless, the Irish were still reluctant to join a conference in football, but with super conferences on the horizon, they felt this was the time to move. Notre Dame was also attracted to the opportunity at being the premier team in the conference.

    Is this the final move in college football, or just the one that sparks a bevy of bigger changes? Time will tell. But one thing is for sure. The Pac 12 will be extremely strong next season.

    As the new coach of The University of Texas Longhorns I would first like to say how excited I am to be a part of such a rich tradition here at Texas. I am very excited to be joining the Pac-12 in 2015 and facing the likes of USC, Oregon, and Standard. When you become a coach you couldn't ask for better opponents to truly test your level of talent. As a program we would like to thank the BIG 12 for the many great years, and Coach Brown for all that he has done for the University. We are looking forward to a big season with some great returning talent. GO LONGHORNS !
