Info is not from Swaim.

Swaim was the first one to mention it. His tweet was re-tweeted by a bunch of WVU fans and is now found on several WVU forums. Yes, it's the origin of the rumor.

Mock if you will. I'm pointing out the fact that Swaim tweeted info early this morning about the Big 12 possibly gutting the Beast and the invites could come "soon". That tweet was re-tweeted by a bunch of WVU fans. Now this information is being spread as truth across WVU fan sites. There was nothing out there until Swaim's tweet and subsequent re-tweet by WVU fans.

Give me something from a reliable source in Oklahoma or Texas. They are the ones that make the decisions on B12 expansion....not WVU. Hell, there are not even guarantees that WVU will be in the B12 before 2014. Pretty useless information.

The thing is, I don't care one way or the other. It's that Swaim throws a bunch of sh_it against the wall to see if any of it sticks. He's had every Beast team in every conference but the AFC to this point.

Sir I mock not.

I have only admiration for your foresight and ability to decipher the winds. And just because Boren of the University of Oklahoma; Dodd of Univeristy of Texas; the B12 Commissioner; the AD at Louisville; a couple of U.S. Senators and most of the national sports media are dropping these so called hints that the B12's expansion is imminent; you sir, never believe such insane reports.

Did the B12 take TCU and WVU from you? Nay. Did the ACC take Syracuse and Pitt from you? I say nay. This unfounded fear and rumor spreading that so many in the public are always pushing; is the main reason that the other conferences are so unstable and the Big East is a rock. I for one am happy that you have ignored it all, Sir. And I say thank you, because you have shown us that there is nothing to fear except fear itself. Our Country needs more leaders like you sir.

Please provide such links to these "so called hints" that Big 12 expansion to 16 is "imminent" from the likes of Dodds or Boren.

Commissioner,

I am in your corner. I for one don't believe any of that stuff alluded to by Boren, Dodd, or the Big 12 Commissioner; that is why I didn't want to bother with you with those lies. Just remember sir, that it was you that asked me for this information. Have mercy on the Big 12; sir. Have mercy.


Oklahoma president: Big 12 set for 2012

NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma president David Boren said Monday the Big 12 Conference is settled with 10 teams through the 2012 football season, but didn't rule out the possibility that two more teams could be added in 2013.

"Definitely, I think we have the opportunity to back to 12, if we want to," Boren told The Associated Press.

Boren did not identify which other schools have expressed an interest in joining the conference.

With the departure of Missouri and Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference and the addition of TCU and West Virginia to the Big 12, Boren said game schedules and media contracts are set for 2012 with ten teams.

Boren said he would like the league to ultimately explore the option of expanding to 12 teams.

"I don't think we have to be in any rush," he said. "It might be wise to take a little time to do that, because we want things to settle down."

A former Oklahoma governor and U.S. senator who became OU's president in 1994, two years before the Big 12 was created, Boren said he believes stability has returned to the conference, despite the departure of Nebraska and Colorado last year and Missouri and Texas A&M this year.

"Right now we're in a period of stability that ranks with any year of the history of the conference since it's been formed," Boren said. "We're financially well off. We have solid media contracts. We have a full schedule of teams to play. We have many other schools still knocking on the door if we do want to go back to 12. We're in a very good situation."

A thousand pardons Commissioner. I know that you are irritated, but you shouldn't be sir. Trust me when I tell you this; that lousy B12 Commissioner, Chuck Neinas, couldn't carry your ample jock strap sir, even if he had 3 guys the size of Shaq to help him. Neinas is not worthy of licking the gravy off of your double chin, muchless being compared to you as a Commissioner. I knew that you where a genius back during the Summer when you met with that dastardly Neinas and that equally dastardly ACC Commissioner, John Swofford. Some others saw it as just a meeting, but I saw it as you springing your master plan.

Several weeks later when Neinas took TCU from you, I laughed at him; because he didn't know that he was playing right into your hands. Several after that when Swofford took Pitt and Syracuse; I chuckled, because while he may have thought it was a surprise attack; I knew that you were not surprised. And when Neinas came back several weeks later to get WVU; I knew right then and there that the time had come for you to implement phase one of conference domination. And then you let them have it: SMU and Whales V-a-g-i-n-a State Univeristy. Boom!!!!! There it is!!!!

Sir, I am merely a poor man that has applauded your every brilliant move. When others have said that your plan was nothing more than a rip off of the CUSA and MWC plan; I quickly chastised them for ever thinking that you were behind the curve and would ever be low enough to steal from a bunch of lowly nonAQ trash. HELL, it was your plan. Everybody knows that. And besides that you never met with the CUSA and MWC officials in New York; as they so frequently claim. Sure some of your employees met with them, but that in no way means that you gleaned the plans of that conference and stole their crazy idea of having a conference from ocean to ocean. If anything, they stole your plan, because you have always said that "everywhere is East of somewhere." Hence anyone can be in the Big East.

Marv, everyone knows that the Big 12 is eventually going to go to 12 and that Louisville is high on the list. Duh. They have been high on the list for a few months.

Where did it mention going to 16 and gutting the BE? I'll still wait while you weakly attempt to provide a link. That's what the WVU posters on this thread have been saying and that's what I called them out on. Clown.
