Big 12

There's a better chance than not that your solid university will be invited to join the Big 12 late this Summer. Number 2 is up in the air between UConn (espn), UCF (Florida recruiting), BYU (great but will not play on Sunday), Memphis (good geographical fit), Houston (no chance- everyone hates). Who would you guys want as number 2?

UConn just because I love the rivalry basketball has become between us, really a fun intense physical game to watch every time. But honestly I think memphis would be better, basketball wise both good program(memphis is a down this year) but football wise I think Memphis getting into the big 12 there football program would develope pretty quickly. They got some great facilities, but I'd hope for UConn for their hoops

I would love to see the Seminoles! UC has more history with Loserville than any of the above mentioned teams and I truly believe (my opinion and thoughts only) the Big 12 goes to 12 this spring/summer and 16 when the ACC GOR expires or gets destroyed by SEC/B!G expansion. Ultimately there will be four 16 team conferences.

The B!G will add two of these ACC teams: BC, Virginia, N.D. or NC. I predict that this conference shuffling will finally force Noter Shame to pick a home. It is the only expansion team that doesn't make sense geographically, but they add a national tv audience. I predict the B!G gets ND and BC.

The SEC will also target the Tarheels. They won't go after BC. I predict the SEC will get NC. They will also look at Miami Hurricanes.

With the addition of UC and Memphis, the Big 12 will go after four more teams and they won't all be ACC teams..The obvious ACC targets will be Fla State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Loserville, and Pitt. Loserville and Pitt would combine with UC/WVU to form a nice travel cluster and again further add current P5 territory with large tv markets. I predict the Big 12 will add these four teams: Fla State, Georgia State, Loserville, and BYU.

This super conference expansion will happen by 2024/25, but could happen sooner if the GOR is successfully challenged.

Cbs sports wrote article on line Monday or Tuesday saying the big 12 is staying put and they are likely the league that is blown up when expansion resumes. ( not this Year ) Oklahoma wants the big 12 to expand in doing so that will allow them and Oklahoma state to bounce. They can't leave now because of the agreement they signed.
