Big 12 Has Resumed High-Level Conference Realignment Talks With Gonzaga (Exclusive)

Recommended Posts

Prior to lining up those Pac 12 schools in August, Yormark had conducted realignment negotiations for several months with Gonzaga and UConn. Sources say there is no current dialogue with UConn, but over the last several weeks, Yormark has quietly continued talks with Gonzaga’s top leadership.

Sources told The Messenger that Yormark would like to see Gonzaga join the Big 12 for the 2024-25 season, but that timetable would be a best-case scenario. The Big 12 schools are still digesting the financial ramifications of adding the schools that agreed over the summer to come on board — as well as this year’s additions of Houston, Cincinnati, BYU and UCF. There are many logistical questions that would need to be answered, such as scheduling and how the conference tournament format would be adjusted to account for 17 schools with Gonzaga in the mix.

Not a bad potential top 7 for basketball. Cincy and OKst are historically good, and TCU is on the rise. Best basketball conference?
