It's all very interesting but, since I have zero control over any of it, I choose not to get worked up. That being said, the baseball will be epic. Sure makes Schlossnagle (and ATM) look brilliant.

I want to join just to stop the stupid conference debates on TBH.

I am good with joining any of the conferences with the SEC and Big 10 being my two favorites. I look forward to the new road trips that changing a conference brings. With the Big 12 TV expiring and the Big 12's lack of vision to expand, the writing is on the wall this is the time to make a move. It is nice to have choices and get to dictate your future unlike some other schools in the Big 12 are facing.

Weren't you rah-rah-ing about the Directors Cup standing and Tech's standings a year ago?

Texas just won the Directors cup. I figured that must have meant something based on all that garbage on the baseball thread. lol

Texas hasn't been relevant in a major sport in the last decade. Why not collect more money and just maintain their mediocrity. It makes perfect sense for them.

From a wins and losses standpoint it would seem to make less sense for Oklahoma who, unlike Texas, is a perennial playoff contender (only to get destroyed by an SEC team). The money is just hard to pass up.

It's a matter of deciding whether they want to become Arkansas and aTm and a compete for a conference championship once every other decade and have more money than they know what to do with or have less money and, for OU, continue to be a national power in football. History says they will take the money and run.

Haha yea Tech was high on that list in 2018....Guess we were a 'Top Athletic" program....

Do you actually believe UT is the best Athletic program in the country? I dont who's worse on trying to prove their relevance, Aggies or Longhorns.

But Congrats on your ***Covid Year Director's Cup*** lol. Makes it a lot easier when half the teams don't play and games never happen.

I was just pointing out facts to the Aggies and Longhorns on there bashing Tech. At which point i believe i proved, with data, that they were all about the same with Tech having the edge in the Big 3 men's sports (wins) over the last amount of *** years or right there close. But that said, this isnt about Tech so carry on inflating your egos lol.

I'd love to see this move happen and move towards 4 super conferences.

I am curious why in this conversation FSU wouldn't be considered in conference expansion. Then if that is the case does Clemson fit the bill as well with USC rivalry?

I think it makes more sense to add 1 team each to East and west. OU/TX in the west and Clemson/FSU/Miami in the East seem to be the best fits.

Iowa State isn't getting into the BIG, honestly if those two leave the Big 12 the remaining 8 will be wandering in the wilderness much like TCU was from 1996-2012

Understandably, 95% of the whizzing match around here is between fans of UT, OU and A&M. What do you fans of the other Big 12 schools think will happen to your team? Specifically those rarely at the top of the pile but with solid programs and big fan bases like Baylor, Tech, TCU, OSU. As an OSU alum I am sick about this and fear for our future but implosion of the Big 12 has felt inevitable for quite a while. In past flirtations with other conferences the conventional wisdom has been that the Oklahoma legislature would not allow OU/OSU to be in different conferences. They apparently have that power but the SEC is not going to take OSU as a package deal. I wouldn't want that anyway...

Iowa State brings nothing to the table for the Big 10 in regards to new TV revenue and Iowa will fight to make sure it doesn't happen. This may be a different situation than the Aggies fight cause Iowa State is not bringing more money to the table for the conference. If the Big 10 can make the numbers work and smooth over with Iowa, then I think they are a logical spot. Matt Campbell deserves a bigger cut of the pie for getting ISU Football relevant so its a consideration.

The Big 10 would take KU because of basketball in a heartbeat. The only holdup may be their ongoing NCAA investigation and how hard they are hammered.

Iowa State and KU are both AAU Members which is a requirement to be a Big 10 Member. That's a big step.

They don’t have that power and have already mentioned they can’t hold OU back. They also mentioned Boren being the reason they held tight to OSU.

There is a REP BU grad from the Plano area already trying to stop Texas, he won’t have much luck. I guess the power grid must be secure if he has time to waste on this.

As a Baylor fan I would hope the Basketball national championship would holds some weight and we could get into the ACC and bring football along but its likely we would end up in the Big East as basketball only school. I don't see PAC-12 taking any religious schools. The remaining 8 could hold together and bring in some AAC schools like Cincinatti etc but its still not P5 conference anymore, it would be AAC 2.0. I don't really see any good senario for the football program.

It will be interesting to see if the PAC is willing to take the religious schools. That might be their best chance of survival to bring in TCU, Baylor, Tech, and OSU to get to 16.

Their only other option is OSU, Tech, Iowa State, Kansas which they could be in a losing battle with the Big 10 for Iowa State / KU as previously discussed.

That puts Baylor and TCU in a tough spot and dependent on the ACC.

This could very well be the precursor to the 64 team super-conference. The SEC would be at 16 teams and the Pac 12 needs four more, B1G needs two more and the ACC needs 1 more. Pac 12 adds BU, TCU, Tech and OSU. B1G adds KU and ISU. ACC adds ND. There you have it. KSU, WVU and BYU are the most notable schools left out.

Well if it happens it happens, it would add some good games in football and baseball thats for sure.

A&M controls its own destiny over the next couple of years either way, start winning and you put yourself in a great place to continue the success.

Best post on this thread! As an Aggie I could care less what UT does. It's up to us to decide our own fate. We were given an opportunity when we joined the SEC and so far we've been going in the right direction. Things are in place this year for us to be pretty good and make a good run. Alabama is probably the most vulnerable they have been or will be so we have a shot! Hopefully one of these young QB's can perform on this level and we have an awesome year! We shall see soon enough!!

What do you think of the theory that this will hasten the demise of the NCAA? Their whole "student athlete" model which has largely been a farce for years is coming unraveled. The increasing use of the transfer portal and the NIL stuff are the biggest example. We have always heard rumblings that eventually the big $$ schools will just withdraw from the NCAA and start their own organization.

If the Big 10 can make the numbers work and smooth over with Iowa, then I think they are a logical spot. Matt Campbell deserves a bigger cut of the pie for getting ISU Football relevant so its a consideration.

The Big 10 would take KU because of basketball in a heartbeat. The only holdup may be their ongoing NCAA investigation and how hard they are hammered.

Iowa State and KU are both AAU Members which is a requirement to be a Big 10 Member. That's a big step.
I would normally agree with this but the Rutgers and Maryland expansion experiment ended up doing nothing for them as far as TV market. So that may not be as much as of a requirement this go round?

The TV market is no longer the lead topic of conversation when talking expansion.
