SEC Now Taking Recruits Away From Big 12

"...the Big 12 will have to find other ways to make up ground in recruiting..."

The Big 12 has far more problems than lack of championship game.

Really don't think this is an issue.

It's just some other wannabee fan trying to push an agenda, hoping to scare people into inviting his team, since no other method has worked yet. This one won't either, since nobody here is a Big XII university president.

He's thinking that perhaps fear will work. It works for Baptists.

So the facts that the Big XII may be handicapped by having no championship game, covers only 5 states which are, by comparison, thinly populated (meaning smaller TV markets and recruiting areas of influence), and has an enormous gap in the footprint unlike any other P5 conference, which hinders stability and synergy doesn't concern you? There's a difference between courage and foolish apathy.

10 teams is the optimum size for a conference. It allows all schools to play each other every year in every sport. There are no unequal schedules. And no other schools are needed.

The thing here is that most people fear that which is different. The Big XII is the only power conference that allows every team to play every other team in the conference in every sport, doesn't play a championship game, and doesn't feel the need to conform to the majority. But the majority wants to force conformation, so that everything fits into a one size fits all box. But life doesn't work that way, even though weak minded fools try to make it so, piling failure upon failure in their efforts.

Thanks, but no thanks. We'll pass. If the future of the Big XII depends upon Memphis, it's status as a power conference has already been diminished.

Texas and Oklahoma can recruit nationally. The rest probably recruit within the region. I know that WVU tried and failed to open a Texas pipeline and went back to recruiting grounds from the Big East, just in a new conference. Looks to me that this is paying off big. WVU seems to be getting bigger, better players from the same parts of the country we've traditionally recruited. We already fight Cincinnati for recruits. Doubt anyone would start recruiting Tennessee just because we invited Memphis into the Big XII.... If you were arguing for inclusion because of TV sets, then maybe you have a case....but not for recruiting territory.
