    Flexibility. Plus ours was the first conference to reach that number. The Big 12 was the original "super conference." The B1G isn't letting go of the name "Big Ten;" would we really want to call ourselves that anyway?

    Branding. The title has name recognition.

    SEC had 12 before the Big 12 did.

    Likely the same reason that the Big Ten retains it's name with 14 teams...

    I was just vacationing in Tampa and Orlando area. I drove through USGF in Tampa and UCF in Orldalando. Those schools are more than commuter schools.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_U...tem_of_Florida

    Florida Gainsville 43% acceptance, 50k students, $500M research
    FSU Tallahassee, 59% acceptance, 40k students, $200M research
    USF Tampa, 60% acceptance, 50k students, $300M research
    UCF Orlando, 45% acceptance, 60k students, $140M research

    These are the four biggies in Florida. They should be in consideration.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.

    I can't wait for the stories of how ATM got bullied by Texas and how they make out ATM, Nebraska, and Missouri to look like heroes.

    While representatives from Kansas, KSU, Baylor, and ISU were forced to stand facing the corner and not allowed to make eye contact with anyone.
