    The more I think about it the Big 12 should go after FSU & Miami

    FSU & Miami are football schools in a basketball is king conference. Granted Miami is tainted right now but what a coup that would be to pull those two in!

    At first people will say no way, but if Texas/OU convinced them they are in this for the long haul the Big 12 is a lot more financially lucrative than the ACC. Then throw in a BYU and the Big 12 could operate from a position of strength if there is future expansion not in a defensive position.

    They may say no but I think the Big 12 could actually make a good pitch for those two. Think what the tv deal with those two and maybe a BYU would be worth.

    Go big or go home. I like it. It is certainly better than ECU, Houston, SMU, etc.

    Do us a favor and just stop thinking altogether.

    Might as well add the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers while we're at it.

    I didn't say they would get them but why not try? And why wouldn't two football schools in a basketball king conference think of joining a football power conference in that situation?

    You really think this is a dumb idea instead of trying for Air Force and Louisville?

    Re: The more I think about it the Big 12 should go after FSU & Miami

    Which is a better football conference, the Big 12 or the ACC?

    If VT and/or Clemson (but not FSU) leave the ACC, they will be destabilized just like we are at the moment. Why does the Big 12 have to get left out of the super conference expansion?

    I like it....go big or go home.

    (ok, I'll put down the pipe now)

    It is worth a try. It will come down to what TX and OU will put on the table. If they would guarantee 10 yrs in the conference (not really out of the question with a stipulation of super conference formations as a loophole), the B12 might be able to pull in whomever they want.

    Re: The more I think about it the Big 12 should go after FSU & Miami

    I mean, the SEC, Big 10, and Pac 12 are the only truly stable conferences out there. People sort of assume that the ACC will wind up being the 4th super conference, if that idea does indeed happen. Why is that? The ACC will get poached, probably by the SEC and possibly by the Big 10 if the massive expansion happens. Maybe FSU and Miami will want to be proactive. Hell, why not go after GT as well!

    (this time I really will put it down)

    I think the Big 12 should go get USC, Florida, and Ohio State. That would be AWESOME!!!
