LaMichael James suffered an elbow injury against California.
Oregon Ducks running back LaMichael James suffered a rather nasty elbow injury in Thursday night's win over California. Before leaving with the injury, James posted his third-straight game of at least 200 rushing yards. The junior's final tally indicated 240 yards and one rushing touchdown against the Golden Bears.
The Big 12 was on its deathbed earlier this week, but has somehow survived for the second year in a row. Thanks to the Pac-12’s decision not to expand and add Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech, the Big 12 will continue to exist – for now.
With the news Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are inching closer to joining the Pac-12, the writing is on the wall for the death of the Big 12. Some issues need to be worked out, namely how the Longhorn Network will work with the Pac-12's current television plan.
Barring a miracle by commissioner Dan Beebe or the Pac-12 not approving expansion, the Big 12 is finished.
