RE: Which conference values Kansas most?
Which conference most values Kansas? I would guess/hope that would be the Big 12.

I know this much, if you're relying on your proud basketball tradition to carry you into some sort of weird bidding war, think again. As the University of Connecticut has shown, basketball success is not a factor at all.

Kansas had better get its act together in football – that's all I'm saying. The clock is ticking on the Big 12 and we all know that. It's not a matter of if but rather when it implodes and who is left behind?

I don't think KU would be left behind but I'm not positive

Kansas has one big thing going for them that gives them advantage over the UConn, Cincinnati, Memphis type of G5 expansion candidates - they are part of the old Big 8 guard and currently already P5. I can definitely see them getting left behind if the conferences all decide to go to 16 in a mid-2020s B12 GOR expiration P4 scenario and B1G snatches up Oklahoma and Texas, but I doubt that the SEC would pass on a chance to add a basketball power and long-time rival of Mizzou and chance to expand more into the midwest and the ACC would pass on a chance to add a legendary basketball power that will likely stay one for decades to come (which is where UConn runs into problems).

Kansas needs to require proof of actual attendance (ie, stamped tickets) at all football home games as a prerequisite to purchase any basketball tickets. That would probably double their football attendance in one season.

Texas will never buy off on the initiation fees of the B1G. The 1/2 revenue for new members will not fly in Austin. I doubt it flies in Norman either.

Things can always be negotiated. Maryland, Rutgers and Nebraska were all desperate to escape their situations. Texas and Oklahoma have leverage as two the top three targets in expansion for every single power conference.
