    I like what we have going on right now with 10 teams, but if we were to expand BYU would be tops on my list.

    Of course that would make sense for BYU, but I think they missed their opportunity.

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    Per the article, it looks like all of the benefits to inviting them would accrue to BYU rather than being a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    The BYU vs Baylor tailgate would be off the hizzy!!!! Wild times! Have the National Guard at the ready!

    BYU has been a name floated since the Big 8 expanded. It's never worked out so I don't expect it to work out now.

    Actually, I'd rather have Southern Methodist join than BYU

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    There are lots of reasons the Pac-12 picked Utah instead of BYU.

    Rutgers and the NYC market > BYU and the Salt Lake City market including the Mormon diaspora

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I think the BigXII missed their best chance for expansion when they didn't pickup Louisville. Louisville and BYU would have been 2 worthy additions. Now we are looking more at a scenario where if we picked up BYU we would also have to pick up an additional, less attractive school to make 12 schools. I can't think of any other quality schools out there (other that Notre Dame, but that ship has sailed).

    I do agree that BYU has a pretty good market and could bring in some viewers/money to the table. They even have their own TV channel! However, scheduling would be a bit*h!
