    The time to take any action on Baylor is when the Big 12 renews its Grant of Rights agreement. At that point, there is nobody forcing Baylors inclusion but themselves. If the other schools don't want to sign it with Baylor on board, then they won't be included.

    Unless the SEC is downsizing, my bet would be that the Big 12 would NEVER dump Baylor for Arkansas, and give the SEC an opportunity to grab another recruiting/exposure foothold in Texas right next to another major population area. That risk is going to demand a bigger fish than bottom feeder Arkansas from the SEC...maybe TAMU or LSU (geographic fits), and neither of them have any incentive to come to the Big 12. Although recently, life hasn't been that stellar for TAMU in the SEC.

    Folks here are letting their BU hate blind them. Whether it is fair or not, BU just isn't the damaged goods that some here seem to think they are. Sometimes it seems like Rhule has one foot out the door, and he has still been able to pull off a notable turnaround in 2+ seasons.

    They have no desire to leave the SEC. Especially to go to the Big 12.

    Maybe Chad could pull off a Gene Chizek move?

    Every big time conference needs a Rutgers.

    So, we are 5-24 in last 29 games. We were 23-7-1 in the previous 31 so 28-31-1 over last 60 years. All time we still lead 50-48-4. Pretty even.

    Its the two Arizona schools or bust on conference expansion, as far as I am concerned. They both might be willing to move with the money they are getting out of the Pac 12 tv deal.

    But if its not them, just stay at 10 and spread the money around. We are fine either way.

    I can't see that happening either. The Big 12 is the least prestigious of the power 5 conferences. If the Big 12 adds anyone they are coming from a smaller conference.

    Has anyone said "Brett Buliema" yet in this thread? Paul Rhoads there too under him for a stint. Surreal.
    This will never happen, but I like my Arkansas brothers and sisters....That school and Missoui would be the best conference after ejecting Baylor and TCU. I kinda feel bad for West Virginia....I like them in the conference, but trips to Lubbock? As a fan, conference road-trip-ability ranks very high......Not as high as $$$ to the Athletic Departments that are paying salaries.

    We're not paid like the least prestigious. The Pac 12 is far behind us. Missouri is operating in the red even with their $EC money because they play in the eastern division. I could see Colorado or Missouri wanting to come back some day just to cut travel expenses and return to playing geographic rivals. The exorbitant cable contracts bubble is going to burst during the next round of negotiations.

    PAC 12 is a money bleeding dumpster fire. Pretty sure per school payout for Big 12 is also bigger than the ACC.

    Would Texas, Tech, and TCU (who you meant) really quash it, though? When the Big 12 was being formed in the mid ‘90s Texas, A&M, and Tech didn’t even want Baylor (I think it was TCU they wanted back then). The problem was the governor at the time was a Baylor grad and wouldn’t sign off on the other three schools founding the Big 12 unless Baylor was part of it. That’s why, even after several scandals involving murder cover-ups and rapes we’re still stuck with them.
