    If you were the Big Xll commissioner would you add two more teams?

    who would you add? I love the big Xll and want to see the championship come back to KC.

    Only if they were the caliber of a Clemson, Florida State, etc. Louisville at the lowest.

    And you know the championship game would be at Jerryworld in Dallas, right?

    Louisville for sure, because they're so much better than West Virginia in everything and it makes just as much sense location wise

    Re: If you were the Big Xll commissioner would you add two more teams?

    Yes I'd like to see the championship game come back to KC but if there ever is a championship game again it will be in Jerry World. Yes I would like to see 2 more teams added but no directional schools at all...

    My ideal choices would be to make BYU somehow work and some team that is not happy in the ACC.

    then split into East/West divisions...

    East:
    Iowa State
    West Virginia
    Disgruntaled ACC school
    Texas
    Kansas
    Baylor

    West:
    Oklahoma
    OSU
    Texas Tech
    TCU
    BYU
    Kansas State

    this is my dream situation...

    No I wouldn't. Really love the round robin. It's the way it is meant to be.

    I would like to add 2 more teams. However, where do those 2 teams come from?

    For fans, our conference is the best in the country. Nothing better than round robin in football and bball. The media and fans of other conferences don't get it, they use having brutal conference schedules to prop up SEC football and big east/acc bball but the big 12 gets looked at as second class when Texas and OU aren't the cream of the crop. So as a fan, it doesn't get any better than this but for the national identity of our conference, teams will have to be added.

    How about a couple crap teams in our division, so we get 2 more W's. I'll take every W I can get.

    Re: If you were the Big Xll commissioner would you add two more teams?

    When the next wave of realignment hits (it won't be for awhile) West Virginia will probably move to the ACC, and the Big 12 will probably take Clemson and Florida State from the ACC. Those are two rivals that can stay rivals in a much better football conference. Now do I stay at 11, or do I find another? I think I have to find another to keep up with the SEC and Big 10. So I add Louisville from the ACC or perhaps a team from the SEC or Big 10 that wants out. Those two conferences will eventually implode. They're a ticking time bomb.

    I liked having a champ game. I also liked not having to play everyone. Even more so on years like the one we've been having.

    Would you really like to try and sell the B12 to other schools now? Come to our league, but don't you dare challenge OU or TU in football or KU in basketball. We have ways to make sure you don't ruin their seasons and hurt our cash cows. So please join. It's fun.

    While we are dreaming, I say we find some sort of evidence to blackmail the Big 10 for an invite...

    Sure, I'd like two more if possible.
    I'd also like someone to drop off a couple billion dollars by the house, but I don't see how that happens.

    Agree.

    If you look out over the CFB landscape conferences have added CCGs not eliminated them. The problem is that presumably the B12 has already made runs at teams that would be acceptable additions (FSU, Clemson, etc.) and has halted (overtly) expansion plans.

    I want to add teams. But the B12 MUST add the right teams and there simply are not any available. IIRC the only conference w/o a GOR is the SEC and I think it's basically a non-starter that Arkansas & LSU would join the B12 so there we are. Everyone is either locked up by a GOR or won't join us.

    I'll probably get flamed for this but if I were B12 commissioner I would begin a study/outreach mission to figure out a way to get Arkansas & LSU to move to the B12. Some package by which they could make more money than in the SEC.
