    Big East or Big XII

    Anyone else see the Big East being the league that's in trouble and not the Big XII?

    Obviously better teams in the Big XII (even if just the ones willing to stay)
    All teams are Football and Bball
    We had aTm leave
    Big East just had their two core members try and leave (like UT and OU to us)

    We have better TV deals, better attendance, revenues, etc... Those lower Big East schools are the ones that should be ******** their pants!

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    regrettably it is very possible that both conferences might go away. Or that the Big XII goes away completely and the Big East loses BCS status.

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    Well the non football schools would be ok they could be in with the A10 at worst. Then you have Rutgers who would be an interested team for the Big 10. South Florida would be an interesting team to either ACC or SEC. Louisville, UCONN and WVU are 3 teams that would likely be attracted to conferences filling out to 16 teams. Cincy and TCU are the 2 teams that because of where they are located. TCU other than Pac 12 no real good bcs conference around for them to join and Cincy in Big 20 country and the Big 10 doesn't reportly have any interest in them.

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    If OU would pull its head out of its *** and realize we have a great opportunity here to take our 9 teams and 3 of the big east's, the big east could be the one to disappear and the big 12 could live on.

    A lot of sources saying OU is stuck on the PAC though, for whatever reason. Dont see the attraction to sending your teams 1500 miles and 2 time zones away.

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    I wonder if they will reconsider after the ACC fires that shot. I understand you want conference stablity and the Big 12 hasn't exactly been that since it was formed.

    Show me where in the BCS rules someone loses AQ status. It is VERY hard to lose once you have it.

    Not to mention all the legal/monetary ramifications of OU tearing up a signed contract. The TV deal is all we have going for us right now, that is for sure.

    Big East teams are definitely more mobile, unfortunately for their conference, and they going to get eaten alive. We'll have to see if this going to put ND into play. I'm not so sure they won't say, "you know what, things are going this way and we need to jump."

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    By throwing out ND something to consider. With Penn State going to D1 in hockey that gives the big 10 enough teams to form a conference. Notre Dame hasn't said what conference they will join in hockey could their be a reason for that?

    BCS Status is re-evaluated every few years (I think 2013 is the next time) for all conferences. Conferences can move up or down out of BCS autoqualifier status.

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    why don't the big XII pick up some of the big east teams to fill us up, keep us going. L'ville? TCU? cinci? w.v or uconn? Looks like the big east is done for, that gives the big 12 a chance to go on the offense. pick the teams up before anyone else does. keep us alive.

    Actually you are thinking small...

    The 9 remaining Big 12...plus the 6 remaining current Big East football schools and toss in a BYU for the mormon cult appeal...Not bad and we get to 16 before anybody else...

    The conference then has anchors in New Jersey, Ohio and Florida for recruiting...

    Re: Big East or Big XII

    I do not think WVU is good enough for SEC as they have to recruit way out of their state for talent. How many southerners would want to go to WVU. I thnk SEC wants someone better.

    I agree I think the SEC wants someone better. I think untill the ACC went to 20 or 30 milllion on buyout they had FSU very interested now im not expecting anyone to leave the ACC
