Possible look from the Big 12
https://sicem365.com/s/10554/big-12-expa...-vs-big-12

Quote:Could the Big 12 add beyond Memphis and Boise State?

Other than Memphis and Boise State being next in line, look for visits and/or discussions to take place with Tulane, SMU and possibly even Southern Mississippi. Sources say there's a method to this madness and while on the surface many won't see or understand the appeal, ESPN will have its hand in which teams would be added.

Sure, it’s only “possibly even,” but how they preemptively say, “Yeah, it sounds crazy, but we’re telling you…” is intriguing as all get-out. Also, we’re not a name that someone would just pull out of their behind. For us to even be mentioned means there’s something there.

It was updated to say we & Tulane contacted them (good on McClain) but we are not under consideration.

My thinking was even if they were interested, could we have possibly caught up quickly enough to their liking even with the extra $20-30 million per year & the profile boost they could give us? I mean, we’re not struggling or anything except for the Coliseum arena, but we’ve got work to do to even have 1st tier Sun Belt infrastructure at this point.
