Default Glad we leave the Big 12 after this year

Next year they are gonna add Arizona, Gonzaga, UConn on top of having Kansas, Houston. That will be a complete meat grinder of a conference in the coming years.

Gonzaga and UConn?

I personally feel that the Big XII really botched expansion by letting the Big X pick over the Pac-12 and getting left with the scraps.

If the Big 10 was expanding Wash and Oregon weren't going to happen and they wouldn't have signed on to a long term GOR. They would have probably stayed in the PAC depending on how long the GOR was.

Gonzaga and UConn aren't done deals yet but apparently they are giving Yormark approval for it.

I’d have looked forward to the challenge. OU basketball needs to get better, not run to easier competition.

I think UConn missed their shot. I could see Gonzaga working something out for basketball only.

Right because outside of KU the blue bloods play such challenging conference schedules.

Apparently they are giving Yormark approval to add Gonzaga and UConn as basketball only. Not sure if it'll be for 24 or 25.

Can't add UCONN as basketball only since they have a football program.

They play basketball in the Big East and are independent in football as we speak.
