The award for winning the conference should be an intercontinental championship belt

I've mentally made the move already.  I was just looking at Ft. Collins hotels.  I definitely know where I want to eat in downtown FoCo, too.

QFT, KSU needs to be proactive about this.  If we wait for the Big Televen to destroy the Big 12 we'll be fighting for table scraps like the rest of the losers.

Hello, Mountain West!!  Can't wait for the roadies to places like Ft. Collins, San Diego and Las Vegas.  Those will be like mivi vacations.   :love:  Will be awkward when playing TCU though.

Staples weighs in:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/andy_staples/04/21/big.ten.expansion/index.html?eref=sihp

So let's say the SEC want to go to 16.  Is it a lock they take OU?  I kind of look at them as being a package deal with OSU.  Plus, you'd think the ACC would be fair game as well, meaning the infighting in Texas should UT and aTm bolt and leave the others behind would be tremendous (I'm guessing this is what happens if the SEC goes to 14 anyway).

The best way for the Big 12 to be proactive may be to announce its own network, ala the Big 10.  That might be enough incentive to keep the status quo intact - heck, the Mountain West has its own station, why not the Big 12?  Otherwise, you're looking at embracing basketball and running with it, Big East style (bring in Memphis, Louisville etc.) or becoming the dregs of the NCAA (Mountain West here we come!).

Denis Dodd confirming that the SEC will not be afraid to get into an arms race.

Quote
SEC commissioner Mike Slive intimated for the first time that a war of titans might be on: "If there is going to be a significant shift in the conference paradigm, the SEC will be strategic and thoughtful to make sure it maintains its position as one of the nation's pre-eminent conferences."

That's another way of saying that if the Big Ten expands, the SEC is ready to throw down. The conferences are No. 1 (Big Ten) and No. 2 (SEC) in revenue produced and they didn't get that way by being timid.

I could see a "Texas and K-State go to the SEC" scenario happening.

Seriously, Ft Collins is incredible.  One of the best places to live in the country.  You think you love my Boulder envy threads?  Just wait!

Yeah, none of the stuff you posted is happening so I'm not worried about it. 


(and I do think realignment will happen)


WTF?  Which is it?

Is there some scenario that you are secretly sitting on that involves realignment that we haven't covered?

My Opinons on the whole thing....IF confrences start to get mixed together

The Big 10 will only expand by one school
Big 10 will go after UConn or Pitt
(trickle down might mess w/us)

The Pac-10 will expand by 2
Utah BYU makes the most sense to me because of the geographical rivalries they have

either way i don't see a Big XII school leaving for either confrence

if any do CU and Mizzou are the most likely

no south teams will be leaving

if both schools do happen to leave then i say we go after the Utah BYU combo, if only one Memphis makes the most sense to me, TCU will be brought up and other schools in the south i know but when new schools do come into the Big XII they will be put in the north no matter what and if you say anything else you are real dumb they will never break up the rivalry rich division the south is for football.
