    It wasn't that long ago many in the big 12 were looking for a life line in the big east including Kansas... Nobody is thinking they are safe down the road. Even the SEC isn't going to rest on their laurels

    Cincinnati checks a lot of boxes and has played the Big 12 expansion game well but what about shadow of Ohio State?

    Depends on how long this lasts and whether it looks like two or four (or zero) schools.

    Source: Today (Monday) the Big 12 will announce they have narrowed down their list of teams they're considering. UC will be on the list.

    Yeah but it'll look better for us to get into the Playoff as the only team to beat Houston. And we did it twice. ;)

    No way this happens publicly. Perhaps behind the scenes, some schools will be informed they are cut. But no chance this is made publicly.

    Big 12 has already been rightfully ridiculed by how they've turned this into a spectacle. No way they turn it into an episode of The Bachelor.

    I don't know if that helps us or hurts the perception of the football in the AAC, so conflicted on rooting interest.

    A Houston win would lose the vote of any Leftover 8 not tied to Texas.

    A comfortable but not embarrassing loss would probably win a few votes.

    The XII track record on judgement isn't a strong one.

    Weve gone way past the Bachelor, weve gone at least to Bachelor in Paradise, and teetering on Rock of Love with Bret Michaels

    If I may, I believe Mr. Andy Staples said it best in his article:

    "Anyone who claims to know is either lying or has never dealt with the Big 12, a dysfunctional group of schools that came together in a mid-90s shotgun wedding between the Big Eight and the remainder of the SWC. The Big 12 is that family where every reunion ends with someone breaking a beer bottle and screaming "Come get some!" It does not always act rationally. "

    I disagree. Listless as they were, Houston beat FSU in a NYD6 game and whether they beat UConn last year and went undefeated, they were not getting an invite to the CFP. Houston may have been ranked #13 in the AP that week, but they #19 in the CFP rankings and at the end of the day, that decision is still made by humans, who are shaped by perception.

    No. Nobody knows anything. There is a consensus of those who don't know anything that think Cincy will make the cut. That is very different.

    The Big 12,should play this out like the guy that just bought a brand new Mercedes. He wouldn't dwell on the cars he wouldn't buy,because he will be too busy bragging on the car he bought.I assume the Big 12 will be focusing on the ones they do decide on,more than anything about those left behind.

    I agree it's doubtful they announce publicly that the list is culled, but it also begs what the question what kind of culling are we talking about? Is it just removing the joke candidates like Northern Illinois and Arkansas State or is it narrowing the candidates to five or six legitimate contenders?
