    Big 12 conference needs to play offense instead of defense

    Now that "some" stability has been brought back to the conference, I really believe the conference needs to be a big player and start going after some other schools from other conferences instead of letting other conferences take aim at our schools. I really believe this super conference thing is going to happen, it's just a matter of time. I know there has been a lot of talk about adding BYU if OU, UT, and OSU would leave, why not go ahead and extend the offer. Other teams worth considering: Memphis, Houston, Colorado St., Loisville, Kentucky, TCU, and Boise St. obviously we can't add all of these schools but it certainly would be worth looking into!! Any thoughts?

    Re: Big 12 conference needs to play offense instead of defense

    I'd guess we will see more movement after the Directors meeting today. I don't want to kill another conference (Big East) but elevating lower level teams may not be in the best interests of some in our conference.

    Any thoughts?

    Being proactive instead of reactive? Brilliant! Thanks for being the first person to bring this thought up!

    Has anyone considered going after Notre Dame?

    Forget Notre Dame... we need to focus on LSU. It is widely known that they don't want to be in a conference with a school that has a stupid band that claims halftime victories, fake soldiers, all male cheerleaders, mason jars, a cemetery for dead dogs complete with it's own scoreboard, etc....

    Edit... If you want to know my source for LSU's anger with A&M just check out the "crawfish hunter" on twitter. He has been blowing up the last couple of days.
