    If an SEC team does join the Big XII, it will not be Arkansas.

    Re: Missouri Joining Big Ten Rumor

    I'm thinking its just another one of those "rumblings". I'm not quite sure Arkansas would want to come to the Big XII. The blog said something about old rivalries with Big XII members. Does anyone know more about this?

    The rivalry would be Texas vs Arkansas.....because we all know, the only thing the Big 12 cares about are the Texas schools.

    Re: Missouri Joining Big Ten Rumor

    You will have to scroll down to former conference but I think Texas and Arkansas used to be pretty big rivals. I remember a few years ago they played a home and home series.

    Re: Missouri Joining Big Ten Rumor

    I would assume with it's old conference foes like the Texas schools, but I am sure they are craving to start a rivalry with Iowa State.

    That was a lot of replys in the same minute for it being 12:33am

    Re: Missouri Joining Big Ten Rumor

    Arkansas was in the Southwest Conference with Texas and TCU and SMU and all of those bad boys from the '80's, if I recall correctly. So it was kind of a big deal when that conference went down in flames.

    Re: Missouri Joining Big Ten Rumor

    This is garbage. If you read down to the end of the blog, GO BULLS! is the last line. This person is just posturing to get USF into a better conference and flaming rumors to try and get it moving in that direction.

    Arkansas would lose money and FB TV exposure coming to the Big 12. Plus to be rivals with the old SWC foes they'd have to be in the south not the north. Guess you could bump OSU into the north, but I doubt they want that to happen either.

    For the love of ******, I'm sick and tired of talk about teams changing conferences due to a stretch of good or bad football. People starting this **** are ********, pure and simple.

    Why wouldn't OSU want to come to the North? I mean, for at least 4-5 years until Chizik get's ISU's **** together, they would own the North - championship game every year.

    Re: Missouri Joining Big Ten Rumor

    As much as I would like to see the Razorbacks in the Big XII I really don't see it happening (although they would be a good fit from a geographic standpoint).

    As for the Razorback rivalries, the Hog fans and media were giddy about the home and home recently with Texas and almost went into mourning down here when the series ended. They really don't have a clear cut rivalry in the SEC that stands out.

    As I said, I don't see them jumping ship for another conference but I guess if it were to happen the chances might be slighty (very slightly) higher with Broyles on the way out.
