    You had me at "Charles Vergos' Rendevous"

    Seriously though I like the idea of Louisville, but BYU would put the Big XII in 3 time zones and I don't really like that. Fact is, Louisville doesn't have a natural "dance partner" for this move, and they need one

    Why does everyone hate Cinci so much?

    Miami (Ohio)? Marshall? Suggestions based on geography and football competitiveness alone. I have no clue on their academics, etc.

    Re: Frank The Tank: Big 12 expansion rumors

    I don't get it either. Cincy could bring a nice TV market if they were in the Big 12. I know Ohio State rules the state, but Cincy could build a nice following in football and basketball as part of the Big 12.

    If Ohio St is playing Indiana, and Cincy is playing a team like Texas or Oklahoma, it will get quite a few eyes and ears in the state. Being #2 isnt a bad thing... as long as the gap lessens.

    Re: Frank The Tank: Big 12 expansion rumors

    I have thought all along the Big 12 should approach FSU & Clemson and FSU & Clemson would be stupid not to accept due to the disparity of tv revenues. He brings up an interesting point(but no numbers) about academic institutional revenues, but if this is accurate you would think ND would think more about the Big 10 and their research $$$.

    Tulane would be a better option than Cinncy. Heck if your going to take Cinncy and their terrible attendance (they almost always draw under 30K) why not take a big University by a big city in Northern Illinois and see if they grow into something by virtue of being in a BCS league.

    Not sure. I don't think they'll end up in the Big 12, but I don't get isuno1fan's emphatic hatred either. I see them as a potential "sleeping giant" if they got into a good league.

    Re: Frank The Tank: Big 12 expansion rumors

    I guess in all of this, I got a chuckle out of the B1G pushing for a play-off. It's probably becoming painfully obvious to them, that without it, they won't see a Championship game again for a while. I also love their idea about the home field play-off. Seems their ADs have a lot of the same ideas their fans do, "Of course we lose bowl games, if they had to come up here and play us in January, we'd definitely beat them."

    I'm with others on Cinci though. After that BBall fight, I really don't want to see them in the Big XII.

    Wouldn't WVA would be a scheduling partner for Louisville and TTU be BYU's scheduling partner?

    These would be terrible additions. Absolutely awful. Tiny fanbases and nothing for markets. **** facilities too.
