    Big 12 will survive and prosper...

    Here's what appears will happen:
    1. All current teams, minus aTm will remain in Big 12
    2. Commish Beebe will resign
    3. Interim will be named
    4. Texas will agree to rebrand network and share Tier one and two money, plus NO high school games
    5. New teams will be brought in to total 12. BYU for sure, plus others from a list of TCU, WVG,Louisville, Cincy, UConn plus others
    6. TV Contract will continue
    7. All teams will sign multi-year out plus major fee to leave
    8. Prior to new TV contract, other teams may be considered if growth is desired

    There will be a wait list of teams that want to get into the new Big 12 from Big East, MWC, Indep etc.

    ESPN reported today that Big 12 is top football conference so far this year with SEC number two. Big 10 tailing badly. Value of conference will grow into future.

    BYU comes if we only go to ten. Otherwise its probably Louisville, South Florida, and TCU.

    Too early to tell, but that appears to be the plan. Remains to be seen if it can be pulled off.

    USF won't ever play in the B12 IMO.

    Re: Big 12 will survive and prosper...

    would be my dream to save the XII, and invite former big east teams to make the first 16 team super conference....




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    You sure have changed your tune in the last 36 hours ;-)

    I hope so. I don't think that USF will ever play in the big 12 though. WVU, Cincy, Louisville, BYU, TCU, and Air Force are more probable...

    I think you meant Big 10 there.

    Your plan makes sense to me. I hope you're right. This fan of the Black & Gold legion of doom does not want to see the Big 12 implode.

    Your plan makes sense, and the B12 imploding makes none.

    Well if ketelmeister says so then this must be true. Can I quote you as a source, mr. ketelmeister?
