This whole mess is partly their fault, though they were just protecting their interests. A league with KU and KSU will be just as good bball-wise though it will be weird to say the least geography-wise. B12 name could be kept, or something else entirely. Either way it might be able to keep a BCS spot if Boise and TCU are invited. Also someone must lose the basketball games as between UConn, UL, Cinci, KU, KSU and Baylor the basketball league will be stacked.

If they expand to 12 and add Georgetown, St John's Villanova and Notre Dame in basketball wouldn't that stem the stench of failure?

Do you really think the BE would grow to 16 teams in football?

If nothing else the NYT demographic chart showed one thing: there's no one outside of UCF or BYU or Boise that is worth talking to in the rest of college football. Put the 4 Big-12 losers and the 6 BE losers and TCU and Boise toegether and maybe think about ditching Baylor for UCF and call it a done deal. There's nothing else out there that counts 500,000 fans.

Boise St?

Are you guys out of your cotton pickin' minds? You can't be serious.

Boise is out in no-man's land, impossible travel destination, not to mention the school itself, the fact that it's only a matter of time before it fades into the woodwork.

Whatever, I would be fine with 12, 7 from BE (with TCU and BYU if WVU is out) and 5 from the former B12. I think BYU would be open to joining if we were able to hold onto the BCS slot.

You have to be a fuking idiot to blame the basketball only schools for any of this. It's been explained millions of times on here already why that's not the case whatsoever, yet people still continue to cite it with no substantial evidence to back it up whatsoever.

Not to mention, that all of us joined what was a basketball conference to start.
