Let those three schools leave in 2 years with their rights, and networks give the remaining B12 a network and maintain P5 access, with a deal that extends to 2035. Those remaining schools will then have to fill out the conference, which is where our chance would come in. That's what in that last Twitter stream I posted yesterday.jonathanjoseph wrote:Would be very interesting. This means a number of universities are in line to lose their "P5" status and money, which might be enough chaos to set a whole set of changes in motion.golfnut69 wrote:I actually vote for the AAC games to be on Home / Garden...The Discovery...or History Channels.....soon all of the Big12 games will be on the "History" channel
Insider Info....The new conference will be called "The Big Tex and a few friends"
One question that I'm thinking about is where do Oklahoma, Kansas and UT go? Do they join another conference or start their own. If it were to happen today I'd bet that Oklahoma would start up a conference with the other Big 8 schools and add WVU, BYU and Cinn. Texas would start up the old SWC and add Tulane and possibly the Florida schools. Of course, this is all speculation. I just think UT and Oklahoma would rather be the big fish in a small pond instead of going 7-5 every year.
