    Memphis to join the big 12?

    Found this on a memhis message. I know its all speculation and rumors, but it would be interesting to see them in the big 12. Funny how some mention getting rid of ISU.

    Will Memphis ever join the Big 12?

    Get rid of Texas, Tech, A&M, and Baylor, add Memphis, Arkansas, Tulsa, and some other CUSA or Mo Valley team with football.

    I wouldn't mind being in the Big Ten. Hopefully Penn St goes into the Big East someday and we could take their place in the Big Ten.

    Or to even out the conference.

    I just figured we were going to join the MAC

    Iowa St and Missouri going into the Big Ten to replace Penn St would give us more match-ups with Iowa, would force Missouri to play Iowa again, and we'd be able to begin a rivalry with our neighbor to the north.

    Re: Memphis to join the big 12?

    I love how Iowa State always comes up in Big 12 rearrangement discussion. "Let's see, who's the least known team in the Big 12. Iowa State? Yeah, they can go. They were one of the teams they added in 1996, right? Along with Baylor and Texas Tech?"


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    The Big 10 is pretty much the MAC's big brother. There isn't that much of a difference

    The Big 12 doesn't have a single team East of the Mississipi. Not sure why they think they should be the first. SEC makes more sense for them.

    Memphis and Penn St to the Big East, increasing it to 18 teams.
