    I love this scenario. Here's a great report from KUSports.com.

    Its better than the CUSA but I would still much rather be in the Big East. There is no guarantee that this conference would be a AQ.

    Go East, not West. Total households are what you want for future dollars with a Conf TV deal. Plus they are already AQ.

    Finally some sense of this talk about the UT XII staying together. To me this is only viable if we manage to shed ourselves of UT, knowing them, though, they will see this cash cow and push any real threat to their empire to other league then announce they are staying to "oversee" the rebuilding.

    Re: Big 12/MWC merger talk "picking up steam"

    the Big 12 could absorb all 10 members of the Mountain West, including newly acquired Boise State, and move forward as a revamped Big 12.
    when did this happen?

    Great article. Unfortunately I don't see Dan Beebe paving the way on this. Get rid of him and put in an interim committee made up by Mizzou, KU, K-state, Baylor and ISU's ADs to make this happen.

    What about the existing MWC TV Network? Could that be morphed over to become a Big 12 TV Network? Big bucks are a possibility there.
