    who would you like to add to big12?

    if the big 12 stays together, and if gmackey32's sources are correct (from the notre dame thread below) and b12 tries to get 2 of these teams which do you prefer?

    utah byu air force arkansas

    i would dread air force. playing that wishbone every year sends chills down my spine. tough to defend. i would like to see any combination that does not include AF.

    Re: who would you like to add to big12?

    Think about Cincinnati and Louisville too.

    I hope this time around WE are proactive, if these damn superconferences "have" to take place. Let's add teams, let's not get torn apart.

    Re: who would you like to add to big12?

    If the Big 12 stays together Utah is probably in the Pac 10 so out as an option. That being the case I say Louisville and Cincinatti.

    This. Though willing to take arkansas in place of either, im doubting they leave the SEC.

    Re: who would you like to add to big12?

    No one. There are not schools out that would bring enough value to justify IMO

    Why split the pie into 12 when you can split it into 10?

    Me, too.

    Utah-Arkansas would be a nice little geographic spread, but (1) Utah would likely be in the Pac-12.

    Memphis makes regional sense, but some have mentioned academics as being a big downside.

    I do think the league should be proactive, if it does stay together.

    Q: If the XII landed Arkansas, where would the SEC go for a replacement?

    Re: who would you like to add to big12?

    I'd like to see LSU/Arkansas. But without that being an option, I chose Utah/Arkansas.

    Re: who would you like to add to big12?

    None of the above. If the Big XII does not dissolve and chooses to go back to 12 teams I would like to see TCU and Houston added. With this I would like to see Oklahoma and Oklahoma State moved to the Big XII North.

    Re: who would you like to add to big12?

    Arkansas, Louisville, BYU/Utah, in that order. Arkansas fills Nebby's spot very well and any of the remaining schools would plug the CU hole easily.

    I highly doubt we could convince Arkansas to leave the SEC. Why would you go to from the SEC to a conference that is on life support?
