John Klein: OU, OSU open to idea of future Big 12 expansion (Link)
This morning's piece from John Klein in Tulsa. Not much new. He's just following Tramel's lead pushing the Oklahoma and Oklahoma State agenda. Judging from the article, discussions could be turning to 11.

The printer friendly version doesn't show, CJ. It's probably because I didn't choose the story to be printed, and it's cookie specific...

David Boren has been very vocal about going back to 12.

I agree. I do enjoy watching Oklahoma and Oklahoma State manipulate their local media to get their message out. Texas has let this go on for a couple of weeks now. It is going to be interesting to see how Kirk Bohl of the Austin Statesman responds in the next few days.

There are only two voices that matter in that conference. One of them is OU, and the other is NOT Oklahoma St. And out of the two that matter, one always seems to override the other when push comes to shove.

I can agree with that. It's usually Oklahoma voicing its opinion and Oklahoma State repeating it. The other voice you reference and I want to hear is Texas. Thus my comment about Kirk Bohls who has a direct line to Dodds.

Kirk has a direct line to Mack Brown not Deloss, Chip is Deloss's mouth piece

"The Big 12 Conference may be comfortable at 10, but don't be surprised if the league decides to go to 11, 12 or more teams in the near future."

Well 14 schools would match the SEC and ACC.

Same thing that has been said previously. Big 12 will expand if the schools will get more money from their existing TV contract. Problem is ESPN will want to renegotiate with years added to the current deal. They have to decide if they'll get more money from the open market or get stuck with a deal with ESPN.

Thanks for the clarification. So Chip would be more accurate than Bohl's?
