ROFL @ anyone that thinks TCU would ever have a chance in hell to make it into the Big 12. Not ever going to happen. The Big 12 doesn't want TCU nor would TCU want to be in the Big 12. UT's influence is enough for our AD to say **** that.

UT doesn't want any additional Texas schools, so I've heard from some people in the UT Ath.Dept.

TCU was discussing going back to the MWC. Basketball schools don't really have a say. Big XII has to try and get its house in order first, though.

UCONN is still trying to get in the ACC and has said so. Their President was not at the meeting.

I have my own realignment war room going.

I am half expecting to get a front office job in a shitty conference out of this.

Dante84 09-20-2011 11:05 PM

There we go.

Add BYU, we are at 10. Fires out. House is in order.

Add 2 quality, balanced programs in the next two weeks. Now we are in business, and not going anywhere for a while.

Then add an additional 5, and we are the first to 16, and everyone else can eat a dick.

On behalf of Husker nation & the Big10. I would like to be the first to say
Congrats to the Big12-2-1+1 on keeping it together. Way ta stay ahead of the game.

Unsmooth-Moment 09-20-2011 11:06 PM

BYU would be a good get

Dante84 09-20-2011 11:09 PM

BYU is in... so who's the next two? We'd still need 1 north, and 1 south.

North (#11): My money is on Louisville. Or Cinci, maybe.

South (#12): USF? SMU is a no, because UT wont allow another Texas school.

BWillie 09-20-2011 11:12 PM

Welcome BYU, WV, Louisville?

A commish is powerless in an unbalanced conference.

You do have voting members in the conference. Obviously the biggest economic draw is Texas, and they can obviously threaten to leave at any point, but that doesn't mean that Bebee has to kowtow to them, either.

My final thought for the night is that I'll be STUNNED, after talking to 3 people today, if Mizzou ends up in SEC.

Mosbonian 09-20-2011 11:23 PM

Frazod...I know you are in here. I want you to do me a favor.

Next time I look like I am happy that maybe MU might do something smart and get into a real conference, pretend I am your old refrigerator and put me out of my misery.

Positives from this:

-At least MU will keep the Texas pipeline open
-Texas might actually cost itself power by overplaying its hand and leaving itself no other option but the ind. route
-Adding a team like USF could open another pipeline for Mizzou
-Should the conference return to a two division format, Mizzou probably plays in the title game nearly every year, provided OU stays south.
