The Big 12 is doomed
Zero vision, zero leadership. If they had any they would have picked up 4 teams by now Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati and USF. That would give them easy recruiting bases for Ohio and Florida instead of further dipping into Texas, easy divisions, Texas, Baylor, Texas tech, OSU, OU, Kansas, Kansas State and WVU, Cincy, ISU, Houston, Memphis, USF and TCU. But they will wait... Everyone on this board knows is true.. wait there is no one on this board. Cause no one cares about the big 12...

A whole lot you know. When I graduated KU we were in the Big 8, everyone got along(except Missouri Occasionally) and we worked together and had a healthy respect toward our Brothers. Since Texas came into our collective lives they caused so much trouble-almost Immediately we knew as long as we were to exist KU would be Texas "special" Target.
I wish we had never made that demon deal. We would all be together again.

I think think Texas should go their own way before they are allowed to run things for the entire rest of the conference. They seem to run the show, but could leave at any time and leave everyone else worse off.

Adding the Texas schools was a mistake. Their conference failed for a reason and the Big 12 inherited a lot of their own internal problems.

RE: The Big 12 is doomed
It's really interesting to see this topic 5 years on from when it was posted...

The mentioned teams 'Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati and USF' have all gone on to develop, as has the whole AAC to be fair.

But the Big12 has largely been fine without them.
Stagnant, but fine.

This is demonstrated in the revenues--
Looking at the last year before the pandemic, the Big 12 had over $550million in total sports revenue...

But in 2016, at the time this topic started, the Big 12 had just over $300million in total sports revenue...

Clearly a big improvement.

So sometimes we, as fans, feel the need to want to see something new, something different. But when you look at the numbers in enrollment, attendance or revenue (the things that the colleges actually care about), the Big 12 has been doing an overall good job.
