    ***Official Big 12 expansion thread***

    Big 12 Intern Commissioner Chuck Neinas has said that he expects the conference to expand back to 10 teams and not 12 immediately. Looks like BYU is the leading canidate. Post all of your recent expansion news here.

    Can't wait to see posts saying the Big 12 should add schools like Memphis, New Mexico or Tulsa

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I definitely agree that we need to do this, but we can't just add anybody.

    Boise St will never get in with their love affair with partial qualifiers.
