As Big 12 expands, AD Travis Goff vows to remain in pursuit of what's best for KU

That reads like Goff is speaking platitudes to Ku fans rather than offering a statement based on reality. Perhaps that's the role of a young athletic director though, to fire up the base. Clearly, coach Lance is an upgrade over coach Les, although that's a low hurdle. The Jayhawks were fun to watch last night.

Realignment Today: As reports surface of a power conference alliance moving forward, at least one of those conferences remains open to expansion

This feels a little like being the German general prior to D-Day, hoping that there's a settlement where Germany keeps Czechoslovkia and Poland, that wouldn't be too bad; or it forms an alliance with Russians again to ward off Churchill's bombers; but fearing the truth, surrender, and dismemberment.

Realignment Today: Reported meeting Tuesday between Big 12, Pac-12 worth noting for several reasons

This is about football. An alliance of football and MBB would bring the Pac 12 Network a Midwest footprint and people who actually care about college sports. Leave the other sports in their conferences as they are today. It's a good concept worth pursuing. Unlike a merger, an alliance would allow the B12 to add BYU without causing the left coast Ivys to go epileptic.
