It's interesting to see people talk about stability, but it makes sense. When you're talking about 2013 recruits, they may be at the school until 2017. Coaches can pretend the Big XII is stable, but no sane person is convinced that it won't lose more teams between now and 2017.

Look at the class of graduating seniors today. When they were Freshmen, things seemed stable. Now, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, and Mizzou are in 4 different conferences.

Meanwhile, there. Are only 10 teams left in the conference which now covers 5 states instead of 7. 6 of the teams are afterthoughts in their own state. Hell, outside the state of Texas, there isn't a top 40 metro area within the conference's footprint.

Kids and their families have gotten more savvy, and coaches are going to use this as a weapon to beat the lesser members (everyone but Texas and Oklahoma) of the Big XII down on the recruiting trail.
