    My suggestion for new team to add to Big 12...

    I haven't seen anyone mention UNLV yet? Why not add them from the MWC as well if we are replacing teams or simply expanding the conference. I get the BYU and Utah angle for tv market, I get Memphis as well, Boise State, all have benefits. But Vegas has to be a decent sized market, and how sweet would it be to go to Vegas every other year for football, or every year for basketball? And they have decent history for basketball...

    If one team leaves the Big 12, I dont think its going to be 'let's add another' I think that will start the tumbling blocks.

    Not bad, but I'd rather get Louisville. Maybe they don't want to have to compete with Big 12 teams, and we don't have the revenue sharing that makes the Big 10 so appealing to Big East teams, though. However, this arms race doesn't look good for the Big East, so they might want to jump when they can.

    I don't think any of those schools make much sense in terms of travel. I would say TCU, Arkansas and maybe a Memphis would work but the other ones don't make much sense!!

    That completely depends on what team that is. If it's Texas, yes. If it's Missouri or CU, no.

    Are we really going to have 3 threads a day about this topic for the next 14 months?

    No, just until football starts. And then after football is over.

    So during the season it will jump to about 10 wondering what the conference will be like next year and how we will stack up?

    According to google map driving miles:

    Ames to Austin, TX: 962 miles
    Ames to Louisville, KY: 611 miles
    Ames to Las Vegas, NV: 1453 miles

    Nothing wrong with Louisville...

    Don't you really think it depends on who that team is Jon. Texas goes the league doesn't recover. But if CU goes west, I don't think it effects the conference to the point of Armagedon. Its not a good thing, but not the end of the world. Not good for ISU if they add another southern school though.
