    TCU to the Big12

    Looks like things are starting to roll now.

    @kbohls Big 12 presidents and chancellors have voted to invite TCU to join the league, should be finalized over next several days.

    Re: TCU Invited to Big12

    I like it. That should be pretty close to the finishing blow on the Big East and now we should be able to pick off the teams we choose. That league just became more unstable than the Big 12.

    Re: TCU Invited to Big12

    Is it too much for me to ask that the Big 12 both stay together and bring in some FB teams that we can beat frequently?

    Re: TCU Invited to Big12

    I have to HIGHLY doubt this is it. We have to be inviting 2 others (3 if Mizzou leaves).

    What does everyone else think this will do to aTm's recruiting now? I have thought all along that the Big 12 could add another Texas school to try and maintain their recruiting advantage over the SEC for Texas kids, and this is probably why Texas was OK with this move. But this cant be the sole move, it makes zero sense as far as adding revenue.

    Hard for me to find joy in another league's potential demise considering we were not too far from their ourselves however I realize this is a necessary move.

    I rather see BYU before TCU, hopefully BYU is next.

    Of all the speculation of teams to be added, the only consistent one I've heard is TCU.

    Re: TCU Invited to Big12

    Looks like we are going to 14. Hear the big sucking noise coming out off the Big East?

    We may be giving out offers like Hoiberg to 2012 players: hit them early, hit them hard, hit them with CF threads.

    Maybe an north/south split of divisions? I would think TCU, Louisville, BYU, WVU and Cincy at this point with Misery in tow. Gee, that could mean KU, ISU, Cincy, Louisville, WVU, KSU, and BYU. MO would just have to beat WVU in Columbia to go BCS.

    Re: TCU Invited to Big12

    I am assuming that the B12 has discussed with it's TV partners the ramifications of adding certain schools to the conference. TCU, from what I understand doesn't bring that many eyeballs to TV sets. But they do have a good program and whatever allows the conference to gain long term stability is in the best interest of ISU and the conference.

    I would prefer at least one Florida school. If not two. USF and CFU would be good for the conference.

    Re: TCU Invited to Big12

    If BYU and Louisville are next, I'm on board with it.

    I don't think we're done adding teams. If Big 12 signed off on this, obviously it means Pollard and everyone at KU, KSU, OSU, Tech, Baylor, etc agreed to it.

    I don't hate this as much everyone else does. Especially because it means we're going to be able to pick up other Big East schools.
