    What should our next move be?

    The remaining 5 schools should immediately fire Dan Beebe and move the Big 12 offices out of Texas. Then a massive lawsuit should be launched against the SEC and PAC 12 for tampering in order to protect the athletic budgets of the remaining schools. Then the schools should immediately merge with the Big East bringing in TCU and Boise State in also with BYU. Once that move is done a $35 million exit fee should be created. Then as ESPN will probably try to get out of their TV contract we should force them to settle for a huge buyout. Once that is done the Big 12 should move its TV rights to NBC that move with the allowed creation of private networks would make us very attractive to Notre Dame. While this situation wouldn't be ideal but it looks like our best option being that the Big Ten doesn't want 16 teams and we would be making a stand against superconferences and our footprint would be massive.

    If Texas and OU leave the Big XII there is no way that BYU would join. None.

    Call me crazy, but Larry Scott would be smarter to split off Taco Tech from the Longhorns and take BYU instead. A much better play on his end.

    I don't see any scenario where Dan stays.

    Heard alot on ESPN today about a PAC 20. I would doubt this includes KSU because of their academics.

    and to add onto this a different status may begin to come into play other then AQ status, it called NON-Profit status super conference will most likely lose that status and could be taxed heavily.

    Re: What should our next move be?

    The question is will Iowa State and others in Big 12 want to move forward with a new Big 12 or hope they get an invitation to SEC (Missouri) or Big 10 (any of us except Baylor). I would take a Big 10 invite in a heartbeat over a merged Big East/Big 12. So if the merger comes into play, do we all sign committments to the merged league and bail on it if we get a better invite?

    If only 5 teams remain I don't think the Big 12 remains as a conference so Beebe won't have a job anyway.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: What should our next move be?

    The talk on Satellite today is that UT, Tech, OU and OSU are gone to the PAC, but the deal they sign will have them leaving when the current TV contracts expire in 2015, to avoid litigation. (didn't have exact dates, so makes the info suspect, imo) Guy was from Hookem.com?

    If academics meant anything Texas Tech wouldn't be receiving any kind of consideration from the PAC 12. Texas Tech is basically a juco as far as academics go.

    I think if an invite doesn't come within the next month or two then we should because it seems the Big Ten is taking the watch and see approach. So our best move is to create a hybrid conference that will force the Big Ten to act or let us make the best of our situation.

    Re: What should our next move be?

    If the ACC and Pac-12 both go to sixteen and the Big East dissolves, we will be fine. Suddenly there will be a bunch of Big East bowl tie-ins available and the 4 biggest conferences are going to be like Hungry, Hungry Hippoes trying to gobble them up. Do you really think the Big Ten and SEC are going to be ok with the ACC and Pac-16 having a bigger mouth than they do?

    West Virginia seems like a lock to the SEC. Mizzou will get wooed by the SEC and Big Ten. Notre Dame and BYU are going to have to do some soul-searching about whether or not there is really still a place for independents in the BCS.

    I think we will see WVU, Mizzou, and one of TCU/Baylor/Louisville go to the SEC. I think we will see Notre Dame, Iowa State, Kansas, and Kansas State to the Big Ten.
    I think we will see South Florida, Cincinnatti, and two of TCU/Baylor/Louisville go to C-USA and we will watch them to develop into a fringe BCS conference in a few years. I think there's a good chance BYU rejoins the Mountain West.

    I think there's less of chance but still the possibility the following happen: MWC and WAC re-merge to sixteen teams minus the Texas schools making the jump to FBS. Army and Navy join the MAC along with a northeast school jumping up to FBS (possibly Villanova?). I could also see the Sunbelt finding enough southern FCS schools willing to go FBS to fill out a sixteen team league as well.

    Re: What should our next move be?

    This is sick, but now that there's a glimmer that the Big 12 might stay together, (based on comments coming out of this morning's conference call) I think I want it to die. I'm so sick of TX and OU, and I have such disdain for Texas Technical Motorcycle Mechanics Institute that I want them gone. Push the dominoe and let's see what happens. I feel strongly that a B1G invite could happen.
