    New Conference Mileages.

    If this gets merged that's fine, but It covers so many different threads and I didn't know where best to put it.

    I am a loser and took the time to calculate the average distance to possible new conference alignments. I used Google maps walking directions to get as straight of a line as possible.

    All Calculations include KU, KSU, Mizzou going with us into that conference

    Here are the Results:

    Big 12 as we knew it: 566 miles
    Big 12 (no CU or NE): 603 miles
    Big East Football only: 733 miles
    Conference USA: 755 miles
    Big East all schools: 794 miles
    Mountain West: 875 miles

    Thanks for doing that. Now, if you get really bored this afternoon, you should go back and calculate the averages, taking out the farthest location in each conference. Because it seems like each of those has a really long outlier (i.e. south florida and san diego). Thanks.

    Without the farthest it would be (drop USF for BE, UCF for USA, Tx for B12, and SDSU for Mt West):

    Big 12 as we knew it: 529
    Big 12 (no CU NE): 561
    BE ftball: 670
    CUSA: 713
    BE all schools: 760
    MTN West: 801

    Re: New Conference Mileages.

    I caught a couple errors when I went to post what I used for each school I believe they are all corrected now.

    Re: New Conference Mileages.

    It would be interesting to see the average distance if ISU and Mizzou went to the Big 10.
