I’m not sure BYU needs a travel partner, but ideally that partner would be closer to the core of the conference than further. I think SMU is probably more likely than Boise all sports. Take USF/Memphis and call it a day.

And yet Boise States basketball has consistently won 20 games a year since Leon Rice arrived a decade ago. BSU is an all sports invite.

Yeah, the football only argument might have made sense a decade+ ago. Bball is respectable if not great. Looks like T&F and Cross Country are both pretty decent.

Well, look at that…someone who actually does research.

Traveling for Boise basketball is a lot easier to stomach when BYU is already there.

The rumor concerning Boise State, Memphis, SMU and South Florida still being on the radar is one of the best PSYOP campaigns ever, being extremely low cost and low risk (one AD shooting off his mouth, while a couple school CEOs say it's over quietly), but highly successful. It has essentially stymied AAC expansion plans, effectively taking San Diego State and Boise State off the table. The remaining expansion candidates all diminish the AAC. Mission accomplished.

There is no chance of further expansion until we have a clear timeline for the OU UT exits. If the hold for SEC play is Fall 25’, then we don’t need news until Spring of 23’. 16 teams is not going to happen.

Once they committed to Fla, I figured USF had the edge over the field. We know Memphis is a lock for 13. There is really no other realistic options.

If they lose TCU to the PAC, they have a backfill available. If Houston goes, they can look at CSU/Tulane, or bite the bullet with Boise. Taking USF and Memphis best positions the Big 12 well into the future, into 2030 TV cycle even. Every region is solidified, including the eastern footprint, and a national brand in a western time zone. It’s a slam dunk, although there is no impetus to add for a couple more years. But they will add those two barring scandals or piss poor play in the next couple of years.
TCU is not going to the PAC 12 - the Pac 12 would be better off taking SMU - better accademic school and better football team!
