Whoa, that would shake things up. That is a big conference though, I want to know how the divisions shape up (if it happens).
Don't see it happening.
This is a preemptive move by the PAC-10 if the Big 10 does expand taking in several Big 12 teams with it.
Honestly I think the idea of 2-3 behemoth conferences bores the hell out of me. IMO college football is pretty good where it is at conference wise. I think the larger conferences are well balanced with each other for the most part and some smaller ones have schools making legitimate title contender cases.
Really I wish schools would focus more on implementing a playoff system instead of expanding.
I agree with this for the most part. Let the big conferences stay where they are, but maybe get a few of the smaller conferences to merge.
If you could get maybe 8 conferences, you are pretty close to a playoff system
College football is about one thing and one thing only. MONEY.
You mean they're finally gonna kick those Washington and Oregon schools out?
With title 9 college football/basketball has to be about money. They are required to pay for all of the non revenue making sports.
I know it's Conference USA, but I'm pretty sure it's across the board with every conference.
I know I don't necessarily mind because I enjoy sports and I would like to see good facilities to attract top tier athletes to make the athletic program more sustainable.
I know well though there's many others who would disagree.
I went to KC yesterday morning, and President Powers was on my plane. Didn't think much of it at the time. After my lunch appointment I tuned into Sports Radio and they were buzzing about Chip Brown's story and the meeting that was taking place.
I think the Big 12 should invite the Pac-10 and Big-10 to join us and create the ULTIMATE BIG 33~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think the conferences are looking at things currently in an effort to make that point moot.
My preference is to have Missouri and whomever bolt to the Big 11 and the Big 12 bring in my Frogs and another school.
The Big 10(11) can have Mizzou, Rutgers and Notre Dame. The Big 12 can bring in TCU, Arkansas and Houston.
UT seems to be content being a "big fish in a little pond", but I really think it would be more interesting if they swam in a bigger pond, and IMO the most likely destination would be the PAC10 if they decided to make a move.
This is Texas, as big as of a pond it gets for school boy talent in football, basketball and baseball. Opening one's pond to poachers is one of the variables to consider.
A great take on the Big 12 expansion talk..
Some explicit language so be careful if at work...
I respect the history and tradition of football in Texas, but if I'm not mistaken more California & FLA natives were drafted into the NFL this year than Texas natives ?
Bit if you're really a "Texan" with big ideas, big dreams, and big ambitions,
how could anything in the Big 12 be as big as Texas Vs. USC ?
There are much, much bigger ponds than the Big 12. If you're what you say you are, then think big you big Texan you.
That was Hilarious! Thanks...
