Conference Realignment
If the Big 12 misses out on the 4 team playoff due to not having a clearly defined conference champ due to not having a championship game. How soon if at all does anyone see the conference expanding to allow for the championship game and if they do see them expanding. What teams does anyone think will be looked at strongly.

RE: Conference Realignment
The Big 12 has been burned in the past by a CCG knocking out a contender, so they've seen the other side of that coin. It may cause some discussion if this were to occur, but I don't think that a single year's exclusion from the playoff would be enough to cause an immediate rush to expand.

That makes sense, I would assume that everyone is waiting to see how this all plays out.

I do expect several game buyouts for FCS OOC games should that be held against schools. I also expect several higher echelon G5 schools to fill those slots.

RE: Conference Realignment
I think some of the commentary by JRSec and others regarding the Big 12 being in a holding pattern while UT, OU, and to a lesser extent KU consider their options is rather convincing, so I am not anticipating much in the way of expansion by the Big 12. If the Big 12 were to expand, certainly schools like UCF (large school in a good recruiting ground state, even if it's not as high profile as UF or FSU) would likely be high on the list for consideration. Some of the other usual suspects mentioned on the realignment board like Cincinnati, BYU, Memphis would also be possibilities.

We do have a different dynamic in that the Tier 3 rights are not pooled into a conference network at this time, so while markets and geography would definitely be considerations, the attractiveness of a brand name for Tier 1 & 2 consideration may be even more important to the Big 12 than it would be for other conferences.

I am not 100% sure how to take this post?

It sounds like your being cheeky by saying decades then immediately following it up with harry potter land.

RE: Conference Realignment
I Hope it's Memphis and UCF to the Big 12. Though I see no way for that to happen. One or the other. And if it were you guys. USF I would assume we be part of that equation (Unless 14 was a possibility). Just don't see it happening. Especially since we know Cincy is in talks with them. Probably going to be Colorado State. The State of Colorado makes a lot of since with all it's new growth (though most of it's stoners). How much is that Market worth to them? New Markets sound really good to me like TN, FL and OH.

I really really really want to go to Harry Potter land so I kind of need you guys to come with us or we all stay put. And I really want to see you guys facilities in person versus pictures
