Ken has been around Cincinnati forever and has lots of connections to UC. He spent about an hour talking realignment and UC to the Big 12. He had two guys on that were at the meetings last week and both feel at least two schools will be added within 1-2 years. Studies are being done to see if they should add 2 or 4. The one guest said OK has let it be known they'll look to leave the conference if schools aren't added. This is the first time I've ever heard 4 schools being mentioned. I'm just not sure who's out there to get to 4 more schools. As the thread says, realignment isn't done.

The B12 could go with Memphis, Cincinnati, Temple and UConn to completely pick off the basketball contingent. Add to that division West Virginia, Kansas and Iowa State then its basketball heavy.

except no b12 school considers any of those guys a peer or worthy of an invite.

yep...remember, the Big12 could have simply taken Louisville and UC...they thought they were "too good" then, so I doubt they want UC and Memphis now.

well it would be hard for a couple of schools that take in over a 100 million in revenue and play before 80-90,000 fans each week to get that excited about those kind of second tier schools.

which is why I think the Big12 stays at 10 members for the next few years...esp with champ game deregulation (and the 20+ million they'll get from a champ game)

no pressing reason to expand right now...

None. Unless the money conferences can snare one of the better schools, to expand is probably to dilute at this point.
