Happy Halloween Everyone
The Big 10 has 12 teams, the Big 12 has 10. Can someone please explain this to me?
It’s time for the Big 12 to be 12 teams again.
Why now you ask? The Gymster has his reasons.
1 Texas is down but getting better. Right now they don’t have the Clout, Bully Boy Appeal or whatever you want to call it. While they are weak force expansion on them.
2 NCAA Playoff TCU and Baylor were left out in the cold
due to both being Co-Champs. Time for a Championship Game.
3 NCAA Playoffs
4 NCAA Playoffs get the point do we?
Okay, now that I have you intrigued
who do we add you say?
Based on all factors these are the Most to Least desirable additions:
Full time Conference Affiliation is something the Domers don’t want but may have to settle for.
Big 12 Pros Best school available hands downs. Good hoops program as well. Travel costs isn’t an i$$ue.
Cons None except they may fear bringing in the Juggernaut.
Free Shoes U err FSU
Pros for Fla. State They were NCAA Champs more recently than a Big 12 School was. Name value good hoops program. Fla. would be open for recruiting season. This is HUGE.
Cons none really except do we add another school that could come in and dominate like ND could?
San Diego State
Pros Not a football powerhouse. Very good hoops. Opens California for Recruiting Season. Team would get better over time but would not be a perennial contender. Better than Iowa State more like Kansas or KSU where every 5-7 years they contend for a few seasons and the fadeaway.
Cons not many other than not being a traditional football power.
Pros Big Name school.Lots of fans nationwide. More seats sold + more viewers =Win Win.
Cons That Sunday thing for hoops.
Memphis worth a shot as the second school to come aboard not, first choice material.
Va. Tech, Syracuse, Houston, Louisville, Boise St. more secondary adds.
Longshot, What were you Smoking, Dark Horse candidate: Would Nebraska be willing to come back? They have become after thoughts in the Big 10. I don’t think they would want to leave but Boo$ters may claim otherwise.
Your thoughts as always are welcome. Happy Halloween Gabbers
