Did I hear a WOOSH?

Conference Realignment thread

Recommended Posts

I did a search and one didn’t come up, not trying to litter the board so lock this up if there’s another thread on it…but I heard some rumblings that the SEC is looking to raid the BigXii and expand to 16 and that we may hear official word on this by August.  If true we would know soon, but it’s interesting because it could affect the MWC downstream.

LOL...some rumblings.

 

 

Its an article in the Houston Chronicle, Mr Insider.  From their A&M beat writer (which is ironic, since A&M is dead set against it).  the time frame is supposedly 2 weeks.  That alone seems implausible, for multiple reasons, but in the world of realignment anything is possible.  The other thing that makes this interesting is that, while he is wrong as often as right, such info usually comes from UT mouthpiece Chip Brown of Horns247.  Not a peep from him or Orangebloods (the other huge UT website).  Yet.  Guess we'll see.

You heard rumblings? You mean you saw on Twitter that a newspaper in Houston started a rumor?

Why do people insist on having conferences with non-football members?

I could see Kansas approving WSU for Bball reasons, though it wouldn’t make sense football-financially, which we all know drives the bus.

Cincinnati 

 

Today!

 

That would actually be a pretty cool conference with the left behind B12 schools.  I also don't see it ever happening.

GoR will conveniently be waived by everyone in order to let the big bullies of the league do whatever they would like.

Won't happen but I'll have fun with it.

Out of these teams Texas Tech is the only one the PAC-12 would want.

The ACC has always stick their nose up at West Virginia but ...maybe. They would add Cincinnati to go to 16 after Notre Dame turns them down again.

B1G will almost certainly go to 16 but they would raid the ACC before they grab any of these teams. Kansas maybe? I still think the raid the ACC.

I have a weird feeling and it's a feeling they have had in Pullman for years that Washington State and Oregon State's days are numbered in the PAC-12.

Also feel like with Texas Tech being more west that east, TCU's MWC success, and not wanting to compete with the SEC, B1G, and ACC's backyard, if these last Big 12 teams expand, they would go west. BYU gets the first and second call. Houston would get a call too.

Wouldn't be Cincinnati. They would end up in the ACC because I think the B1G would raid the ACC which would open up a spot for Cincinnati and UCF.

I just don't see any of these other Big 12 teams getting interest from the B1G.

It's the AAC board. Every day they are trying to add VCU, Richmond, and someone else to the AAC to make up for their decline in hoops. +++++ing idiots over there.
