    Big 12 will have 12 teams by next season...

    This is my prediction. You will see BYU and one other team added from a group of potential schools. Possibly Cincy, Louisville or TCU. I would guess a Northern School and the divisions would remain north and south. This will keep a Big 12 Championship game in tact.

    Money talks...and TV wants a Championship team. BYU brings a lot of money and numbers to the game, plus the capabilities to form a Big 12 Network internally. They will be too good to pass up. Follow the money. Right now everyone says it won't happen...it will.

    Re: Big 12 will have 12 teams by next season...

    If the Big12 does go back to 12, it would have to be 2 teams that would add to the revenue of the conference in football, and not harm how much gets divided up by each school. BYU could probably be a good candidate. Not sure if TCU would bring enough, or Louisville or Cincinnati for that matter too.

    Cincy, the team in the state of Ohio? Yeah, that makes sense.


    There was one?

    Just like Colorado going to the Pacific coast...not about geography anymore. TV will determine which team. Plus the Big 12 needs to be set to go to 16 teams if necessary.

    TCU = no chance in hell. It would be irresponsible to add TCU.

    Do not discount Ketel.

    He may be wrong, but he has valid reasons for his predictions

    BYU would be a great addition...$ and great academics.

    You are crazy. I think that the Big 12 sits tight for a few years and lets things blow over. Here are my predictions:

    2011: Big 10 grabs Rutgers and UCONN, making their claim to east coast markets.
    SEC follows suit grabbing UNC, who won't go without Duke.

    2012: SEC strikes first this time, taking WVU and FSU.
    ACC continues the decimation of the Big East by snagging Pitt, Syracuse.

    2013: Big 10 finally gets their ND acceptance and brings in Maryland with them.
    Big 12 expands to 14 with BYU, Louisville, Cincy and AF.

    Re: Big 12 will have 12 teams by next season...

    My older brother is a Notre Dame grad, and after reading all of his alumni newsletters about conference realignment this summer: ND has about a 0% chance in joining the likes of the Big Televen. It will never happen.
