I can actually see UTEP getting the nod plus someone else (somehow doubt it ll be NMSU). C-USA just found a way forward and now this. Then again, no more UTEP might actually help C-USA build something of an identity that would be more clearly eastern (might then actually change the name too).
He has. He did a segment with Sanoe. Smoaky called PB who was here in his office, I believe. My understanding is that Smoak still does the Baylor radio and they are old friends. Denton could sure use another radio station. KNTU is now the only radio station in the county to my knowledge.
Toddling off to bed and at this moment my outcome rankings from most to least likely.
1. B1G adds two more, some mix of Stanford, Oregon, Washington, the Arizona schools or Colorado. I think most likely is Oregon and either Stanford or Washington. PAC-8 makes a hard play to get 8 of the Big XII to defect. If unsuccessful congratulations SDSU, Boise, UNLV and if BYU says no, probably Hawaii.
2. B1G holds at 16, PAC-10 probably isn’t looking to join Big XII and vice versa unless someone gets panicky. If no panic, SDSU and Boise probably get the nod.
3. B1G adds four more. PAC-6 is reeling and Big XII probably just absorbs them unless there’s a big measure of regret in Big XII over expansion.
