    ***OFFICIAL BIG12 EXPANSION THREAD***

    Since the Aggies are gone I thought it would be good to start a new thread with information on the expansion of the conference....not your brainstorms but new information coming down the pike.


    I'll start:


    BYU board and their thoughts on the invite to the Big 12

    BYU Future Affiliation Poll • BYU Football • CougarCorner

    The sources in the @ChipBrownOB report say #BYU's relationship with ESPN could play a "key role" in the school being added.

    I think BYU will get some strong assurances that the remaining 9 aren't going anywhere and then they will accept the invite.

    So was the whole thing with the TT chanchellor from a day or two ago true? Said the Big 12 would go after Pitt, ND, and BYU?

    BYU to issue statement on Big 12 speculation


    THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE
    First published 12 minutes ago
    Updated 12 minutes ago
    Provo • Brigham Young University has announced that it will issue a statement late Wednesday afternoon regarding speculation surrounding BYU as a possible replacement for Texas A&M in the Big 12.

    A&M announced Wednesday morning that it has formally told Big 12 officials of its decision to leave the conference, presumably to join the Southeaster Conference in 2012.

    BYU has been mentioned in numerous media reports as a school that is at, or near the top of a list of candidates that could possibly replace the Aggies.

    @BYUinsider Joseph


    If this were good news #BYU would hold a press conference, the statement will be identical to Notre Dames last week. A big no thanks

    Yeah the layout sucks, but it's funny to read all the threads. Seems like 99% of them want to be in the Big 12.
