    Re: adding teams

    The only teams that would join the B12 IMO are non-BCS teams. If the league holds together, Utah is likely headed to the P10. I think we'd have to take from the MWC as well.

    TCU, BYU would probably be top choices.

    Re: adding teams

    Does it have any significance that BYU doesn't play games on Sundays?

    Re: adding teams

    Whatever happened to Arkansas being mentioned as a new member of the Big XII? I understand why they would never leave the SECOND, but just asking about it.

    If for some reason they want to bolt, I saw them and Utah.

    this may be one of the dumber things I've seen in a while....where did you get that list of schools? and why do you think they would be interested in joining the big 12?

    Re: adding teams

    Here are some dumb suggestions:

    If Minnesota would somehow join, we could be the I-35 conference.

    Is Notre Dame only considering the B10?

    Otherwise, TCU, Arkansas, Utah, BYU, CSU, LSU, or Louisville/Memphis/Cincinnati.

    IMO our best bet is a merger with MWC or Big East along with a network.

    I really hope there is some legislative relief which would limit the amount of TV revenue to each school. The USFL successfully sued the NFL because it had a broadcast monopoly of professional football.

    Louisville and Utah. Both better basketball programs than NU and as good or better at football than MU most seasons.

    TCU and Louisville. If Utah is going anywhere, it will be west.
