  1. Total up to 19 now. Arkansas State is also involved. http://www.fox26houston.com/sports/192263333-story
  2. His question is why did not every G5 contact the Big 12 about membership consideration? The truth is, if Arkansas State, Northern Illinois and Rice are throwing their hats into the Big 12 ring, should we and a lot of other G5's as well? Did someone at UNT just make a decision to not pursue it? Or perhaps, we are just not in a good place or time to pursue it? Self esteem? Lack of resources or that the resources should be focused on more important things? Here's the deal -- The Worst thing that could happen is they say no, and I doubt they can arbitrarily leave some schools out without catching some discrimination grief...
  3. Whenever the Big 12 makes a decision on expansion, the league certainly will have done its due diligence. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby will conduct video conferences with 17 schools that have contacted the league about being considered as expansion candidates, sources told ESPN. Sources also said it's "becoming less and less likely" that the league will expand to 14 teams. The most likely scenario is that the Big 12 will stay at 10 teams or only add two schools for a 12-team league with two six-team divisions, sources said. read more: http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/17281618/big-12-commissioner-bob-bowlsby-interview-17-schools-expansion
  4. Former Houston head coach Dana Dimel didn't sugarcoat things when he said that he thought adding the Cougars to the Big 12 would be a bad move. Dimel, now the co-offensive coordinator at Kansas State, was the head coach at Houston for three years from 2000-2002. He didn't waste time getting to his point. "I think it would be really bad for everybody." Dimel's objection to Houston in the Big 12 is related mostly to recruiting. "You can recruit Houston. If they get into the Big 12 they will be tough to beat in recruiting, because of the proximity." Houston has exploded as a program under head coach Tom Herman, going 12-1 in 2015, his first year as a head coach. But perhaps more to Dimel's point, Herman has jump-started Houston's recruiting, moving them from the No. 92 class in 2015 to No. 35 in 2016, according to the 247 Composite Index. That 2016 class included five-star defensive tackle Ed Oliver, a local Houston product that picked the Cougars over teams like Alabama, Texas, LSU, Oklahoma and Texas A&M, as well as a whole host of others. The Cougars currently have the No. 35 class in the 2017 247 Composite Index rankings, but a move to the Big 12 would almost certainly cause that number to jump and give teams in the Big 12 and beyond another power conference competitor to worry about on the cutthroat Texas recruiting trail. read more:http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2016/8/8/12406712/houston-big-12-dana-dimel-kansas-state
  5. Tired of reading about Big 12 expansion? Well, it appears you are in luck! Last week's Big 12 meetings appear to have shined a light on the expansion efforts and, yes, it does appear a decision is closer than it has ever been before. Keep in mind: The decision could be to NOT expand, too. Reading between the lines, two fairly significant announcements came out of the meetings: Commissioner Bob Bowlsby wants resolution to the expansion question sooner, not later. They are asking consultants (TV) to tell them more about the possible candidates. The league, now that the idea of a Big 12 Network is off the table, is no longer looking for schools that help with a TV footprint; They want competitive football and basketball schools that bring compelling matchups to the conference. You can read more about this news at Hookem.com but suffice it to say: The Big 12 is moving quickly to a decision point, likely later this summer before the 2016 football season kicks off. read more: http://www.frogsowar.com/2016/6/6/118609...cincinnati
