         The Univ. of Texas "may reconsider" joining the Big 12
    Conference if the league allows recruits who don't meet NCAA
    minimum test scores or GPAs, according to today's DALLAS MORNING
    NEWS.  Steve Richardson reports UT has no binding agreement to
    join the conference, which is scheduled to begin competition next
    year with four members of the old SWC joining the Big 8.  The Big
    8 let each school decide whether to admit such "partial
    qualifiers" or non-qualifiers, which are athletes who fail to
    meet either standard.  Nebraska officials have argued that
    denying these athletes the opportunity to attend Big 12 schools
    will put the league at a "competitive disadvantage nationally."
    The issue will be discussed at a meeting of league CEOs January 7
    in Dallas.  Eight schools must agree for a policy to take effect.
    Pac-10 officials say a standing offer to Texas to join that
    conference is still valid (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 12/15).
