    Question should be: "What should we add?" My bad.

    Re: Which Teams do the Big 12 add now?

    Just described as "tawdry" on PTI but they reported that FedEx has said they'll kick in 10 mil a year to anybody that'll let Memphis into a BCS conference.

    Who'd of thought tawdry and college sports would be used in the same conversation?

    Re: Which Teams do the Big 12 add now?

    Louisville and Memphis would be great for basketball and ok for football. I voted for Utah, but that seems highly unlikely due to the Pac 10 offer they will surely get. Arkansas or BYU would be good too, but I don't see either happening.

    Re: Which Teams do the Big 12 add now?

    First choice: Nebraska and Colorado for tradition sake though not gonna happen.

    Second choice: Arkansas and Louisville.

    Most realistic in my opinion: Two of BYU, Memphis, Louisville.

    No One.

    TRUE conference football. Play every team, every year in a 9 game conference schedule.

    Houston and someone else. Houston had a lot of success until the SWC dissolved.

    This.

    Play each team every year for football and every team both home and away in basketball. This creates a more attractive schedule and a stronger conference. It also gives Mizzou and Iowa State 4 games each year against Texas teams which is good for football recruiting.

    If we can make it work with 10 teams we should NOT ADD ANYONE.

    Re: Which Teams do we add now?

    Uh, we don't add anyone. These $$$ making financial sense depend upon a 10 team league. Short of adding a giant like Notre Dame would dilute the revenue pool too much.

    THIS...

    Anyone else dilutes the money unless it is Notre Dame. Then you can afford to bring in two more.

    Superconferences ARE NOT the future.

    All of them. We get good teams, we get bowl contracts. We get bowl contracts, we get money.
