LINKS: Big 12 not likely to expand, for now

Based off of yesterday’s meeting of Big 12 athletic directors, I thought it was appropriate to throw together a links compilation today. Here’s some reading material for your Tuesday morning. 

— To sum yesterday up, the Big 12 still wants to explore alliances with other conferences, namely the ACC, before doing anything brash. Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News has more. 

— Jeremy Fowler writes that the Big 12 discussed a lot of "what ifs" yesterday, specifically which schools the Big Ten and the SEC might target should those leagues decide to expand once again. — CBSSports.com

— A strong column by Dennis Dodd, who writes that an alliance between the Big 12 and the ACC makes a lot of sense. — CBSSports.com 

— Predictably, the Big 12’s basketball coaches toed the company line in yesterday’s teleconference when it comes to expansion. — The Oklahoman 

— If you missed it yesterday, here’s my take on the current state of the Big 12. — Cyclone Fanatic 

On Iowa State/Big 12 Basketball…

Might as well throw some Cyclone hoops links in this bad boy right?

— Fred Hoiberg hit the recruiting trail last Saturday night. — Cyclone Fanatic 

— Video coverage from yesterday’s press conference featuring Hoiberg, Will Clyburn, Tyrus McGee and Korie Lucious. — Cyclone Fanatic 

— More details on this players-only meeting that Korie Lucious through on Friday night…— Cyclone Fanatic 

— The Cyclones could be going with a smaller lineup more often going forward writes Travis Hines.— Ames Tribune

— The 14-4 Iowa State women’s basketball team shouldn’t have to worry about being on the bubble for this year’s NCAA Tournament writes Cody Westerland. — Ames Tribune
