We really need to think about recruiting IMO. Going to the MWC will KILL our ability to recruit the kind of athletes we need.
Having TCU and Houston would help us still land some Texas athletes, and the bigger markets of Louisville, Memphis, and Cincy would also help recruiting.
I don't see us pulling many kids from places like Utah, Colorado, and other Rocky Mountain states. And if you do, they will not be the quality of Texas, Louisville, Memphis, and Cincy kind of athletes.
no it won't. Now we get them sometimes ahead of Houston and TCU due to major conference affiliation and playing in Texas. If we lose the BigXII the Texas 4 will still get first dibs, then other major conferences, then anyone left that wants to play D1 but not one of the big4 conferences will first look at Houston and TCU. We will be VERY low on the pecking order for texas recruits compared to where we are now.
I doubt think we're having much success with kids TCU offers now. And I'm sure a combination of Big 12 and top MWC teams would get an automatic bcs birth, so I think that makes it a major conference in most kids opinions, especially with a conference tv network. With that conference alignment we have some shots at mid-tier Texas kids. With no games in Texas, we have no shot imo. Texas and Missouri also recruit in Texas and I think a lot of that goes away if they join the Big 10.
Iowa has recruited out of Texas fairly well at times. They don't play down there. Not being in a conference w/Texas doesn't dry up our recruting lines, especially if TCU, Baylor, and TTech are left out by the Pac-10 (say they just go to 12 and bring UT and OU).
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
ESPN at 6am says.
ND stays independent. Corn Huskers go Big 10 by Friday.
MAYBE the 6 Big 12 teams from Texas go as a group to the Pac 10.
The Buffs are out as far as going to the Pac 10.
The Tigers???? to Big10 ?????
Kansas begs the Huskers to stay.
Bayler has pushed Texas to say all Texas go to Pac 10 as a group. That puts Buffs out of Pac 10 , maybe they go to MWC??
Davies from ESPN doesn't know who Iowa State is, calls us Iowa.
Texas TT TAM Baylor Okie and Okie St are 6 teams that may go to Pac 10
