Conference Realignment: Texas Board Of Regents To Meet, Talk Expansion On Monday

Now, Texas will get together, as well, holding a Board of Regents meeting with the same item on the agenda. Conspiracy theorists, assemble!

U. T. Austin: Discussion and appropriate action regarding delegation to act on matters related to athletic conference membership and contracting

The first item above will take place during a closed session and the second will be out in the open. It should be a slammin' good time.
