Fun to see they are soon going to be playing in the “new” AAC. Enjoy!
The Big 12 will not last as “big time”. They will quickly become AAC-plus. Good luck with the next round of television contracts when you don’t have Texas and OU to hang your hat on. Then when the money goes, the coaching, the exposure, the recruiting will all suffer. Some of us saw this coming years ago; that those two schools would eventually leave, and the Big 12 would just be the next AAC of teams trying to come up and hope to get poached by what is now four conferences.so happy we missed out on the big time.
That's still a great basketball league. Even if you don't like that it is, it is. Kansas isn't going anywhere unless they get a B1G invite, and we'd leave the Big East for one of those, so there's nothing particularly wrong with the Big 12 for them.If the Big 12 were a great league, Kansas wouldn’t be trying to bolt.
If we could package up with Kansas to get into the B1G to get them to 16 teams I would be overwhelmed with joyThat's still a great basketball league. Even if you don't like that it is, it is.

Makes you feel sorry for Temple and the rest of the old AAC, which will become the new Sun Belt. Not sure Temple has any good options.Imagine if we didn’t move. We probably still would’ve been passed up by the Big12 and stuck in an even worse AAC. Talk about dodging a freaking bullet. For basketball anyways.
I would take a Big 12 invite in a heartbeat. It would give our football team a fighting chance, which is something we don’t have currently, all while maintaining our stature in basketball.I would never advocate UConn to leave the Big East unless its ACC/B10 but I'd consider the B12 to be a better basketball conference. Texas/Oklahoma haven't been anything special of late. Houston is at a comparable level, Cincy brings some quality history. BYU is solid, UCF is spunky.
Football take a hit sure is putting it mildly. They lost by far their two biggest assets in Texas and Oklahoma. I don't see any way the conference survives long term.Dumb post. Football takes a hit losing OU (UT hasn't done much in years). Basketball will actually probably be better and it was already the best league last year.

It will continue to be poached, they already lost 6 schools. When a conference no longer looks anything like it used to there is very little to keep it together. It's what happened to the Big East. AAC never even had a chance at surviving, all their schools of worth have already been picked off or bolted. Big 12 has some good enough schools still left that they will be picked off.It will survive unless it is poached. So that's really up to the B1G, Pac and ACC (for WVU perhaps). Money will go down, but not as much as some think. Certainly much higher than the AAC or BigEast.
