    A Look Back at What Might Have Been, and Almost Was

    Last summer when it appeared the Big 12 would lose several teams to the Pac-10, the Big East was ready to take advantage. Sources told CBSSports.com that the Big East presidents had agreed to invite Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri and Iowa State as full members. A meeting was scheduled in Chicago to make the formal invitations with the four Big 12 schools prepared to make the jump.



    However, the Big 12 stayed together and instead the Big East added TCU as its ninth football member beginning in 2012.

    "Two weeks ago in Newport, R.I., Marinatto told me he had been contacted by at least 12 schools "to explain they would be very interested in membership if we were at a point and time and we were expanding."
    Twelve schools? Really?

    From where?
