While nothing concrete has come out in a while there has been plenty of speculation in recent days about Big 12 expansion.
Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman had thoughts on if BYU and Houston could both be left out. He writes, “It seems clearer and clear that BYU isn’t getting into the Big 12. Just too many negatives for the conference, which knows all about negatives. Remember, it takes only three “no” votes to kill any expansion candidate, and BYU’s stance on its Honor Code, gays and lesbians, not playing on Sundays, the issues of it already having its own TV network and geographical distance from the Big 12 has definitely hurt the Cougars’ chances.”
