    Which conference would we rather be in.

    If the college football landscape doesn't change and if the big12 had
    equal revenue sharing would we rather stay in the big12 or play in the big10.

    Big 12

    leaving for the big ten and/or losing texas schools would make recruiting in texas very difficult

    Re: Which conference would we rather be in.

    Are we assuming everything ($$$) is equal? Or, is the Big 10 still bringing in millions more than the Big 12 in TV revenue?
    If the Big 10 is still bringing in a ton more $ than the Big 12, then the Big 10 is where I want.
    But, if everything is considered equal and we are going just based on name, location, and schools, then I would rather stay in the Big 12.

    Yeah, I was taking the "everything's even" approach. If revenue, etc. stayed as it is you'd have to go Big 10.

    Big 12.
    The Big 10 sucks. I mean, it really does. Look how dismal they have been in bowls. Only 2 national titles in football in 42 years! The big 10 is a "has been".

    If we can get recruits from Cali and Florida without ever playing there, I doubt the 3 star recruits we're getting from texas are going to stop coming in.
