Rank the AAC schools the BIG XII would want
Don’t understand the fascination with CSU, they are very mediocre in the MW, they did get basketball last year for the first time in forever.

ISU was one of the one's pushing them. A lot of the old Big 8 schools have alumni in Colorado. Its a relatively populous, growing state. Plus they just invested a lot in a stadium. And they are a Tier I research school. They're "in the club."

If the Big 12 didn’t have West Virginia, I think going west would be best. A combo of New Mexico/CSU/BYU would be good. Not the best, but would be stable.

Actual order of B12 G5 ranking

1. BYU // honor code related issues make them problematic, so they passed
----------------- acceptable line
2. UConn // this school fits, except location
3. Cincy // this school checks off all the sorta boxes, nothing great

----------------- below this line we are reaching
4. Colorado State // almost in the next category, Denver market hugely important to B12
5. South Florida // this is the much stronger research school of the two Florida twins, so they are ahead
6. Tulane // they are better than Rice on athletics and importantly not in Texas, President love this school
7. Houston // if B12 needs a Texas school this would be it - SMU is in same market as TCU
----- are we still bothering below this group?

Rice, Temple, Central Florida at least made the consideration cut

Air Force pulled out, doubt they would change their mind. SMU dropped over market overlap, New Mexico just cut as just not bringing enough, Memphis and East Carolina tossed on the poor academics heap with the "why are you applying" group Arkansas State and Northern Illinois. San Diego State also bounced due to location (Morgantown to San Diego is just a bit too far apart). A few others applied, but whatever.

Does the list order change if say 4 to 6 schools exit in 2025? Probably not. Most likely 5 of the first 7 get in should a mess exodus occur. If just two schools leave then probably just two schools get invited. If Texas stays and OU leaves the Texas will have more say and the list shuffles. If Texas and OU leave, I'd probably march down that list. A couple might pass on an invite in the scenario Texas leaves.

I do think a B12 without Texas and OU would be somewhat compelling. Imagine Baylor, TCU, K State, Iowa State, West Virginia joined by Colorado State, Cincy, Houston, Tulane and South Florida. That is not far off the Big East circa 2005-2011. It might be a "half-power" conference and still a solid Basketball conference. Add say BYU Football and Wichita State basketball and it could be even more compelling (UConn would probably be my 12th). Is that a power conference? Dunno

RE: Rank the AAC schools the BIG XII would want
Big 12 is looking for an “FSU” type team first & foremost: only FSU-looking team out there is BYU. The Big 12 also wants to get WVU off its island. Does Houston do that? No. Nor does Houston remotely resemble Florida State. I’d say Cincinnati is the Big 12’s #2 target with BYU being the Big XII’s #1 target. Right now, the Big 12 is trying to figure out a way to get BYU without all of the negative publicity. Maybe the Big 12 is encouraging BYU to re-examine its honor code again.
