    ISU, KU, KSU, MU and Baylor have conference call

    Officials from five Big 12 schools confer by phone on conference's future - KansasCity.com

    Looks like they know the end could be here soon. I also like to hear the Big East talk.

    Re: ISU, KU, KSU, MU and Baylor have conference call

    The biggest point there was the talk about trust. The 6 schools that are left are like a house of cards. If we all just stick together and pull in some schools, we could all end up OK. But if just one school gets trigger happy, the whole house will come down. Will Kansas get trigger happy and bolt for the Pac10 or the Big East on their own? Will Kansas, Missouri, and Kansas State form their own alliance? I would hope that Kansas and Kansas State would trust us more and want us more than they want Missouri since Missouri made it clear they wanted out.

    This is where having a good commissioner would be nice. Unless Beebe is really working right now at lining up teams to make offers to, then he is pretty worthless. The 6 schools left can't stick around forever.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Saturday that Big 12 North schools and Baylor were on the Mountain West radar, but a source close to the Big 12 said it might be the other way around.
    “The Big 12 has an automatic qualifier to the BCS and the Mountain West doesn’t,” the source said. “Who would join whom?”

    Can we keep the BCS status with 5? I thought this has been reviewed that the 7 that left can vote to dissolve the conference.

    I think they have 9 now, adding BSU is 10, Utah to the Pac 10-16 is 9.

    I would think that it wouldn't get a problem getting the exemption.

    I think we may pick and choose teams from the MWC but no way in hell we just invite the whole conference to play in the Big XII. That would be stupid.

    I'm glad this happened. It was an obvious step for these schools to talk, and hopefully band together in their common interests.
