There was a discussion this past offseason of the Big 12 and Big 10 combining. One of the main reasons for not doing it was cost. That's all I know.
Cost, cost, cost!!!!! These schools have $80 million dollar athletic budgets and get $18/20 million to play in a BCS game. The cost would have little impact on the school at all. The problem will be with the Conferences and the Supervisors.
