My reaction to last week's Champions Bowl announcement, plus some realignment links from the weekend

Almost need to do North/South still.

North: KU, KSU, ISU, OK, OSU, WVU, ND
South: TX, TT, TCU, GT, FSU, BU, CU

Baylor and TCU make no sense in the east when they would be in the middle of the west.

Completed chat with Matt Tait, KU football beat writer

My question did not get posted either... I would like to know if there is any more talk about the DB recruit Crawley. According to rivals he isn't interested supposedly, but why then would he make twitter comments about the new DC we have?

AP source: West Virginia will replace Missouri

A&M and TCU basketball are not a wash... have you watched basketball in the last 20 years? The last time they were in the tournament was in 98' and they lost first round. Football wins/losses can be good comparisons, but the amount of alum and viewers of games are much different between A&M and TCU. Eventually it will be a good decision, but TCU still has a long way to go to catch back up to the other universities that left them behind.

KU officials celebrate big day for Big 12

Posted this on yesterdays main story but it was late in the evening... lets see what you guys think.

This is what the Big XII needs to think about.

Big XII takes TCU - happening now

Big XII aggressively goes after Louisville and West Virginia for 11th and 12th members

As that happens, Uconn and Rutgers will be really pushing to get into the ACC

Big East is gone... Big XII now has leverage and ability to go after Notre Dame. I say this because now what the Big XII can do is say OK, we have 12 football teams and we are satisfied with that. Why don't we go after Notre Dame and allow them to keep football independent but bring all other sports, then we can also add BYU and allow them to stay independent in football and bring all other sports.

All of the sudden we have the ability to give certain teams what they want and need in order to really align themselves with a conference as well as having a solid set of schools. There are 12 football schools and 14 schools in everything else.

Academics will improve with ND, BYU, football will stay strong, we look much more attractive in basketball, and it puts the Big XII on the map as the best conference to be in as well a powerhouse basketball conference.

On the other hand Missouri could leave... Then add Cincinatti as well. Yes it's a hit in academics, football, and a couple other areas. However, we gain a new market, another good basketball team, and another BigE team that will make the old BigE teams happy to still be together.

Just a thought that could be thrown around.

This is what the Big XII needs to do. @Matt you should check into what the possibilities of a scenario like this.
