    Make-up of the Mountain XII

    Here's how it should shake out. A NEW Conference comprised of the most desirable Mountain West schools with the remnants of the Big XII. By forming a new conference, the Mountain West can rid itself of a couple red-headed step-children that were only invited along in order to make 8 teams when they broke off from the WAC to form the Mountain West 10 years ago. (TCU was not a charter member). Namely, San Diego St., and New Mexico for sure, and possibly Air Force, who has a nice following in football but is NEVER D I caliber in basketball, or any other sport, really. A new conference could also open fresh with a new TV network plan.

    Plains Division

    ISU
    Mizzou
    KU
    KSU
    Baylor
    TCU

    Mountain Division

    Utah
    BYU
    UNLV
    Boise St.
    Colorado St.
    Wyoming

    Not bad, but I think TCU stays rather than Baylor getting in.


    Everyone is entitled to their opinion - no matter how wrong they may be.

    Maybe we could call it the Mountain Dew XII and score a corporate sponsorship of $1 billion and adopt the slogan "Just Dew It" and get sued by Nike for $2 billion leading to the dissolution of the league and blame it all on Beebe.

    either Utah or KU won't be in there
