    Add Mich St. to Big 12?

    Big 10 just had a realignment of their divisions. Michigan State got hosed by being put in the same division as MI, Penn St, and Ohio State. The fans seem angry and analysts are aall saying they are the team losing out on this realignment.

    That being said, would you want to add Michigan State to the Big 12 at some point?

    Yes, Dump WVA and TCU or Baylor and, add MSU and Minny or Wisconsin. It will never happen but I would like it.

    I'm pretty sure MSU wanted to be in that division (the school, not necessarily the fans). They didn't want to be seperated from Michigan.

    Once you're in, you're in. No dumping.

    Re: Add Mich St. to Big 12?

    Won't happen for multiple reasons. The Big 12 isn't expanding right now. The Big 10 makes a lot of money from their Big Ten Network TV deal and they don't want to lose that. The "exit fee" to leave the Big 10 is probably really high. The list goes on and on... It would be nice but it won't happen.

    Re: Add Mich St. to Big 12?

    I am guessing this wouldn't be possible right away, but when the next contract comes up why not? Iowa State already has gotten some great MI recruits already, I would love to open that up even more.

    Re: Add Mich St. to Big 12?

    While such a thing would likely ever happen with any Big 10 team. I do believe their grant of rights is up in 2016. So if a team were to move, we would probably see it here in the next few years.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: Add Mich St. to Big 12?

    I heard MSU is joing up with Notre Dame to get us to 12. KSU will then jump to the SEC. We'll stay at 11 for a while before adding Air Force to get back to 12.

    Nobody deserves to get trolled by KSU, except maybe KSU...

    Never would happen, but how fun would be a conference of:

    Iowa
    ISU
    KU
    KSU
    Mizzou
    Nebby
    Minnesota
    Wisconsin
    NWestern
    Illinois


    10 teams...all similar in geography...lots of rivalries in there. Everyone plays Everyone.
