Not a credible source. When realignment rolls around, you often get journalists that don't have a clue about realignment and believe any BS they're told.

It only means the journalist who reported this is really bad at his job.

Had to check the date to make sure it wasn't an April Fool's gag.

Nope, just inept reporting.

Alternatively, it was done deliberately to make the BXII look bad. Once MN declined publicly the Mandel’s, Wilber’s and Canzano’s of the world pounce.

I heard Minnesota declined it.

...of all the 'rumors' the last few weeks, I would pretty much bet the farm on what you have declared... 03-lmfao The ONLY thing I can figure is this may have been a 'distraction attempt' in order to finalize a deal with the 4 corner PAC schools - but if so, it was a best a CLUNKY attempt...

The ONLY way something like this would make sense is if the 'Writing is on the Wall' for the UBER conference which is breaking away from the NCAA... ...remember these will most likely be INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMS breaking away, NOT conferences... so, the top half or so of each conference will be in 'The Club', leaving behind the 'lower performing' teams in conferences... weird thing is, I would think Minnesota would probably 'make the cut' as a decent performing football program, at least the last decade or so... but even if they AREN'T, why would Minn make a move like that NOW? Even IF the 'Great Divide' is coming, you ride the Gravy Train to the ground, duh...

...P.S., y'all Tigahs take it easy on the Blazers when we visit Tiger Stadium this November, y'hear? 04-cheers

...the worst part is that when a story about WHATEVER is posted, seems like EVERYONE else copies and pastes it and it mushrooms into a story, sources and research be danged... I just threw this one on here to provide the 'archive' as to when we look back 5 years from now and goof on all the outlandish stories currently floating around...

MN? I heard that the story is, from (un-)reliable sources, that Alabama was moving to the NFL.

Big 12 trying to take from the Big Ten, eh?

Charley Walters, who actually wrote piece in question, might have good contacts, but he's sorely mistaken on this. If the Gophers were able to leave, and to their credit they wont, every Gopher alum and fan would burn the Twin Cities campus down.

To be fair, he made it sound like Minnesota had no interest in the deal.

To be fair, he said the conversation didn't get too far and that Minnesota has absolutely no interest.

Right - the story could be completely true in the sense that the Big 12 tried calling Minnesota and they responded, "Am I getting punk'd here? I know Ashton Kutcher is an Iowa fan - where the heck is he?"

There are plenty of true stories out there that are still completely insane - that's why it's in the news in the first place!

RE: ...Minnesota to the BIG XII?
You have to wonder if there was any truth to this even being discussed...IF the Big XII is truly wasting their time sending out Hail Mary invitations, it may not bode well for their future. Note to XII, ACC and PAC - don't bother contacting schools in the SEC and B1G unless it is to ask for help getting into their conference. They have no interest in joining yours, move on. Memphis, Boise, South Florida, San Diego State and others are anxiously awaiting your call though...
