Re: Big 12

Yep. 32 team conference by ESPN. Another 32 team conference by Fox/PAC/BIG and we should be good. Ideally. If that is the route college football goes, then there should be just enough seats at the table, unless Notre Dame is forced to join a conference. I don't see that happening, though. The other...

Re: Big 12

First of all, whose idea was it to have "12 team play-off"? Why not 8 or 16? 12 team can be done, but the cap-off for any conference should be 2/3. will shields, gary barta, ty willingham, chris del conte, amongst others. https://collegefootballplayoff.com/sports/2017/10/16/selection-committee.aspx...

Re: here we go again ...

One could argue that this year and, possibly, next are the most important year(s) in our program’s history. A solid year in the top 4 of the Big 12, with a win over OU and/or UT, would improve the national perception dramatically

Re: How do you recruit for a team in limbo?

It won’t be easy. We were having difficulties before this mess. OU and UT are causing significant damage already.

Re: Big 12

It will be quite interesting to see if the 12-team playoff is even approved. The fallout could cause the decision to be re-visited as it seems reasonable to believe the SEC and ESPN are attempting to corner the market on playoff spots. Maybe the 10 commissioners attempt to wield some power - and may...

this is meaningful information with k-state ranking the 29th most valuable football program.
A large portion of this value is likely derived from the media rights, no? If so, our value will fall like a rock absent landing in another P5 conference.

Re: here we go again ...

Pete Thamel @PeteThamel The Big 12 held an AD call this morning. The sentiment in the league, according to sources, is not panicking and sticking together. There’s a desire to not react emotionally and give Big 12 leaders the space to evaluate options moving forward. 11:41 AM · Jul 30, 2021·Twitter...

Re: here we go again ...

my fear is that the p12 will leapfrog the b12 in acquisitions, particularly byu. i see the cougars as key to maintaining the b12 as a stable conference. they are a national brand with a deep football and basketball tradition. Are you then on board to move quickly to expand the Big 12? I like BYU. A...

Re: here we go again ...

I will be surprised if OU and UT leave after this season, or next for that matter, since the only way, contractually, is for the Big 12 to lose 2 or more members. I doubt OU and UT leave before 23/24 unless they buy their exit - unlikely since they are already facing $80 million +/- exit fees if the...
