    I dont want to be in a conference that is dealing with the possibility of teams leaving for the next 10 years if it does stick around after this round of expansion.

    If we can hold these 10 together we need to look for additional teams to bring in.

    At this point, I would much prefer the Big East.

    Unless they have some sweet *** TV deal, a couple of solid programs (BYU and Lville, I'm looking your way), and Texas realizes that their greed caused this whole damn situation, I say "good day".

    Assuming the Big East is willing and stable.

    Agreed. Without Nebraska fighting on the side of the North... I see Texas and OU coming more powerful than they were already. Please let the unstable Big 12 disband.

    Given the TV money presently paid out in the Big East, that's precisely what ISU would be dealing with if they end up there...

    This is probably closest to how I feel as well


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Agreed. If the big east is an actual possibility, i like it better. Do you really want to play OU and UT every year? Now if we could add a couple teams back to the north, it might be a better option..

    Obviously though, if the big east is not an option, staying in the big 12(0) is the best option.

    Funny. Texas is saying the exact same thing, but they're going to leave anyway.

    I smell smoke. However, it's not from a fire, it's being blown up everyone's *****.
