    This would never happen. I don't mind your team selection but there's no way they would split them like that. You would have the 5 best teams in the south?

    ^ agreed.

    I was just thinking from a football potential current bb success that is a good group

    3 BE championships in the decade + a ton of BB success would end up being solid additions

    Memphis has to step up their football game obviously but remember the FedEx money that comes with them

    Boomer, I respect the hell out of your contributions to this board, but what's up with this thread title? "Who this be a decent group?"

    That said, Louisville & Cincinnati would be good fits for the Big XII. Memphis should probably just start admitting community college students, they're about that level right now. No thanks.

    I think that OU and Texas should be split up, that way they can play in conference championship, seeing that they are the 2 powerhouses.

    Switching mizzou and Memphis would help. Still tho u would have Texas Oklahoma and OSU in same division. Hard to break up all the Texas and Oklahoma colleges

    I'd like that Big 12.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Doesn't matter when they play, it's still the B12 championship.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I feel that Cinci and Memphis waters down the conf. Louisville is much better all around and they would be a solid add. Memphis is right as far a geography & basketball but that is it. Cinci with a football stadium with a capacity of 35k is not improving the conf.

    I can't say with 100% certainty, but I'm pretty sure that Cinci is building a bigger football stadium at the moment due to the success they had a couple of years ago with Brian Kelly.

    I don't see them joining the Big 12, Midwest 9, Big Tex and the B!tches or whatever our conference is going to be called anyway.
