  1. East Carolina's bid for membership to the Big 12 Conference has ended for now after being formally notified it is no longer an expansion candidate. ECU chancellor Dr. Cecil Stanton was informed of the decision late Tuesday afternoon by Big 12 officials. Since the Big 12 announced plans to pursue expansion by a vote of its board of directors on July 19, ECU athletic director Jeff Compher has strongly promoted his school as a candidate. The school's athletic teams currently compete in the American Athletic Conference, but joining the Big 12 would put the Pirates in one of the
  2. "The concern is, and where that comment is coming from, is if your northern schools put a southern school, and another school in Texas, in the same league, that essentially is going to pull recruits from all of us," Gundy said. "That’s what it comes down to." "Anyone that’s not in Texas will have a more difficult time recruiting Texas if another Texas school gets in this league," he reiterated.
  3. So SMU is being mentioned as a possible Big 12 addition. The Texas Attorney General and others have shown support for your candidacy. How about you show the Big 12 how well your fans support the program through your attendance to games? Last time we played you in Denton it was frankly embarrassing how few fans you brought. There were plenty of excuses like the game time being too early, the heat, June Jones. Programs that are looking to move up the food chain don't make these type of petty excuses. We brought a respectable crowd to the Hilltop last year, so now is a good time to
  4. We need reconsider our "Big 12 aspirations". The market right now is saturated and they have diluted a lot of what makes college football unique and great with conference realignment. And TV executives aren't all in like they were in the first round of super-conference creation. It looks like the only way a Big 12 expansion would be approved by their TV partners would be stealing a popular team from one the other P5 conferences. BYU is the only team available that actually has a good foothold in a new market for the Big 12. Take a look at this story featured at the link below. If you
  5. The groundswell of support for the University of Houston’s bid to join the Big 12 Conference seemed to come out of nowhere. For two decades, the Cougars' major athletic conference dreams seemed hopeless. Then on July 21, Gov. Greg Abbott declared on Twitter that Big 12 expansion was a “non-starter” without UH. Within hours, more state politicians, including Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and leaders of other Texas Big 12 schools were voicing their support, too. Suddenly, the idea of UH rejoining the highest possible level of college athletics didn’t seem so far-fetched. The show of suppo
  6. It's no surprise that demand for an expansion berth in the Big 12 Conference has two dozen or more universities queuing up with last-lifeboat urgency. A chance to join a "power-five" conference, with all the cache and revenue that go with it, is increasingly rare. So if the Big 12 wants to add two or even four schools, why not Southern Methodist University? If you've examined the lists of top contenders -- Brigham Young, Houston, Cincinnati, Memphis, Connecticut and Central Florida, among others -- you may have wondered what happened to Dallas' university. Since the Southwest
  7. He speaks about investing in your program and playing out West: The coach noted the renovations on Amon G. Carter Stadium were already underway. The $105 million improvements started after TCU beat San Diego State in 2010, the year the Frogs won the Rose Bowl and finished second in the final Associated Press poll. That was still when TCU was in the Mountain West Conference. Patterson recalled getting home from West Coast conference games halfway through the morning and then practicing later that day. He'd like to leave those late nights in the past. "I would prefer not to h
  8. Probably not just Baylor. Throw in Iowa State, Kansas probably OU... This thing is getting real interesting. Also, of interest, there appears to be a bond between the privates and the public schools in all this. Abbott and the UT bigwigs bonding towards UofH seem to support this theory. http://www.ourdailybears.com/2016/7/24/12265856/baylor-should-oppose-houston-s-big-12-bid
  9. You heard it here first. Looks like the AAC has to replace three. Probably Southern Miss, FIU and Marshall is my best guess. Maybe Rice or SMU for academics.
  10. IRVING, Texas — The SEC should just dispense with the formalities, move forward with its master plan of world domination and go ahead and bankrupt the Big 12 and ACC by buying FSU, Clemson, Texas and Oklahoma. One of the most powerful men in the SEC — Florida Gators athletics director Jeremy Foley — has a philosophy that he borrowed from Henry Kissinger: "Whatever must happen eventually should happen immediately." And what will happen eventually is that football powerhouses in the Big 12 and ACC will start to lose massive ground to their rivals in the SEC and Big Ten and will have no
  11. With Baylor facing scrutiny for allowing a football player with a troubled past to transfer to the school, the Big 12 is crafting a new policy that will require more diligence when looking into athletes' past disciplinary issues. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby told The Associated Press on Wednesday he expects the new rule to be structured like the one implemented by the Southeastern Conference. The SEC prevents schools from accepting transfers who have been dismissed from another team for "serious misconduct," defined as sexual assault, domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence. Bow
  12. “When all things are equal with records and whatnot, if someone has played a tougher nonconference schedule, it would usually benefit you,” Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said, while noting he believes tough nonconference games would have helped in the BCS era as well. “Otherwise, why play? Otherwise, you might as well just schedule three yawners that no one will pay attention to and not put yourself at risk of losing that game.” Any nonconference slip up from a Big 12 favorite could come back to haunt the conference as a whole, particularly since the last conference champion to finish the regu
  13. Texas The Longhorns start the Charlie Strong Era by playing host to North Texas, a team that went 9-4 and won its bowl game. Strong and Mean Green coach Dan McCarney, who began his head coaching career at Iowa State, were on the staff at Florida when the Gators beat Oklahoma for the 2008 national championship. "From getting to know coach McCarney when we were together at Florida, I know his team will be very physical and won't beat themselves," Strong said. "Watching their games from last season, they just found a way to win. They'll be well prepared and focused. What they did last seaso
  14. DALLAS -- Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby joked that he's glad to avoid the topic of conference realignment, but he had plenty to say on another topic Monday: NCAA reform. During his 45-minute state of the conference remarks to open Big 12 media days in Dallas, Bowlsby stressed the importance of achieving "transformative change" to the NCAA, its leadership system and its future. "I really do think we need to reconfigure the leadership of the organization," Bowlsby said. "I don't think we can at this point in time move forward, and we certainly haven't been able to configure an agenda t
  15. IRVING The Heart of Dallas Bowl will continue a tie-in with the Big 12 as part of the conferences bowl lineup for 2014-19. We want to be good corporate citizens and community citizens, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Friday on the final day of the leagues spring meetings. Im serving on the board and trying to help [Conference USA commissioner] Britton Banowsky to put something together to benefit the area. Big 12 spokesman Bob Burda confirmed that the Big 12s six-year bowl lineup will include the Allstate Sugar (New Orleans), Valero Alamo (San Antonio), Russell Athletic (Orlando, Fla
