    I would be leery of any legal opinion that makes conclusions without citing legal precedent.

    Should we be worried about the b12 being poached anytime soon? Or otherwise imploding? A few articles make it sound like we are next on the chopping block for the super-conferences (big 10 and SEC)

    He might be right. Then again, I would assume that a roomful of lawyers with actual experience in contract law would have consulted or even written the grant of rights. Plus I would assume each member school had legal council consult before agreeing to it. So he knows more than ALL of them?

    Maybe. But not likely.

    I'm all in favor of adding two more teams but only two none of that super conference horse ****.

    Only if Texas wants out. As long as UT stays, the conference will be fine IMO.

    Bargaining chip for Big 12? Sounds like BYU will not be considered in "power 5" conversation

    Brett McMurphy ‏@McMurphyESPN 1h ACC, SEC can/will still play BYU, it just won’t count as meeting requirement of 1 game vs. non-conference Power 5 team

    Interesting that this thread has been resurrected. I'm not sure if ya'll have noticed or not but the B12 Expansion Committee is gathering to meet next week.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    I would not say that, the Big 12 may have no choice. We will see how the playoff works out without the CCG. If the Big 12 gets left out due to only 12 games vs 13, expansion will happen, OU AD has stated as much already.

    According to one WVU fan on Twitter that admits everything he says is rumor. There is no proof that the expansion committee even exists anymore.
