    Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    I wasn't for adding any more Texas schools but after hearing Miller & Deace today, I think the Big 12 should add TCU as one of the schools. If the Big 12 has to go from 12-16 teams they will probably want to take some of the Big East schools and will be in competition with the Big East. So it is probably a good idea to lock down the last legitimate Texas team.

    BYU is a given. I am warming to Air Force a little more especially if it helps the conference get Denver as a market again and the conference doesn't feel it will have to go larger than 12. If the conference needs to go to 16 I might save that spot for another Big East school. Under a 12 team league I don't think the Big 12 gets a team to the East.

    Re: Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    Would you trust a school that would be willing to do what TCU would be doing to the Big East in that situation?

    TCU adds nothing with their 3,000 person student body. They could't sell out their 40,000 seat stadium last year going 13-0. They are in a market and state we already have locked down. Give me BYU only, or BYU and 2/3 of Pitt, Lousiville, and Air Force

    This. I say go after BYU, then try and get Pitt, Louisville, WV, or Air Force. The conference better go hard and fast now that A&M has decided. Find out how much $ TAMU will have to pay in exit fees, and start to dangle some carrots.

    Re: Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    Offer them a large check that can only be cashed in 2020 if the Big 16 stays together (9 seasoned teams +7 newbies).


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    Taking TCU is not about the tv markets in Texas because the Big 12 will always have that it is about depriving the Big East of their most competitive football team.

    Re: Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    I think we should add BYU, Air Force and TCU. TCU is fine because I would also take Cincy, Pitt, Louisville and West Virginia to get to 16.

    Re: Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    I like Pitt., WVU & Louisville not so sure about Cinncinati. I thnk South Florida would be better.

    Horrible idea. ISU has more to offer the Big 10 than TCU does the Big 12...

    And that matters why?

    Re: Big 12 should lock TCU up from Big East

    It matters for product and legitimacy. TCU has 2 BCS appearances in the last 2 years and finished #2 in the nation last year. The Big East hasn't had a team finish #2 in the country before.

    It also could hurt the Big East in the future depending on the formula for staying as an AQ conference.
