We should go after the Arizona schools right now.

I advocated for the Arizona schools before anyone else on here, like three years ago, but I've changed my mind. It's a glamour play with no value. As great as it would be to add the #9 media market, those two schools aren't getting the conference the additional $50 million we'd need for them not to be leeches.

I thought that was Auburn's thing.

You may remember them as the Alabama school that's somewhat able to read.

I debate if I even want more than 10 teams. In fact the only two reasons I want more are:

1. Our championship game is kind of a joke. We only have it to get a little more money and add a quality win to our champion in the hopes of playoff appearance. It's not needed at all to actually determine a champion.

2. Stealing quality teams from another P5 conference would feel good. Prey vs Predator type of thing. I think it would finally dust off any "Big 12 is the weakest P5 conference" nonsense that gets brought up almost yearly. P12 is trying to beat us in that regard without us doing anything, so thanks to them I guess.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

We could gain an awesome championship game by just putting our champ against the PAC champ. We don't need to split conference revenue with 2 programs that would never even be in the running to play in the Big Pac 12 game of champions anyway.

The sucky part is that, no matter what we do, the awesomeness of the original Big 12 can't be matched.

Come to think of it, I'd say that every P5 conference is now definitely worse than it was before.

Agree, but we can definitely upgrade some schools, starting with Baylor.

I am all for kicking Baylor to the curb and bringing in just about anyone else. Houston would be my first thought.

I would just openly invite all offers for review and see who might be interested.  Maybe one of the future members of Conference Elite is ready to make a move.

This is easy.  Bring back Nebraska and Missouri, kick out Baylor and TCU.

The hell it is! Now I realize that Houston is like the WVU of city schools, but the enrollment is large, they're in one of the largest TV markets in the US, and Houston is a much more fun place than Waco. Also, I'm unaware of any murders and rapes being condoned and subsequently covered up by the U of H athletic department. So it's like trading herpes, a lifelong painful virus that no one wants to be associated with, for a small case of chlamydia, which is just a little infection that can be cleaned up in less time than it takes to prepare for next weeks football game.

People in Houston give exactly 0 effs about U of H. They host game day and nobody bothers to show up. The college sports fan demographic in Houston is like a tie between UT and aTm, followed in close third by LSU and then in a way distant 4th is UofH. I don't think them being in the big 12 would make a huge impact on their viewership aside from maybe a few more visiting team butts in seats.

I'd be curious to know how things changed when they left cusa for aac. My guess is marginal difference but idk
