it's the off-season, so folks in the media have to write about something. the only scenario that has ever made sense to me is the arizona schools joining the big 12 after their gor's expires a year before ours. remember, they left the wac for the pac in '78. it's not like missouri leaving after being a 1907 founding member here. the zona schools have as much or more in common with this league as that one. i could see it happening before ku ever left to join nebraska.

That is retarded. Only retards would even think that had a chance. No one is leaving the PAC for the Truckstop 10, ever.

Yeah, an upgrade. PAC -> Flyover Conference is a horrible downgrade. Only you K-State morons wouldn't be able to see that.

lolwat

AZ has way more in common with CA than it will ever have with OK. What fantasy world do you live in?

You must hallucinate frequently or you are completely retarded. You have managed to write the dumbest post of the year on this board.

lol

You get all your news from Infowars, huh?

I'll make this simple for your infant brain: moving to the Big 12 would be suicide for ASU or UofA. It would be stupid for ANY PAC school, but complete suicide for the Arizona schools. There is a 0% chance of it ever happening and you are retarded for even thinking it. AZ is tied to CA and there is no way in hell they would ever give that up, especially for the likes of Lubbock, Stillwater, and Manhattan. Seriously, get a grip.

And what the hell does "in a cave along the kaw" even mean? No one speaks your truckstop lingo. Learn English.

You just posted an article written to completely discredit the absurd idea that either AZ school would leave the PAC for the Big 12. I'm pretty sure you don't know how to read.

I can post 10,000+ articles on the subject of how the Earth is Flat.
I can post 100,000+ articles on how Barack Obama was born in Kenya
I can post 1,000+ articles on how the world is run by Reptilian Overlords

The number of moronic articles on any subject is irrelevant to the veracity of the claims, Mr. Fake News Lover.

Though I would love to see Kansas in the B1G it would be a bad move to go there anytime soon. Beauty and staff are focused on recruiting the south and Kansas to build this team. If KU were to make a move any time soon all that recruiting would be lost. KU need to build a winning team, then start building recruiting ties up north, maybe even hire some coaches with recruiting ties in B1G territory before it contemplates moving anywhere.

Well, KU isn't going anywhere within the next 6 or 7 years and I'm not convinced KU is going anywhere after that. A lot has changed in the whole realignment landscape in just the past 2 or 3 years and a lot more is going to change in the next few years as well.

I doubt the forces that pushed schools to make the decisions they did in the past 7 years will be nearly as powerful nor even the same forces that will be at play in the near future.

I'm curious to see if the declining ESPN/cable subscribers will hurt the TV contracts as we approach 2023 or 2025.

Right, I guess more specifically, I want to know how much it will impact the annual revenue KU brings in if we leave.

If we're reducing the revenue generated by Tier 1 and 2, it might behoove us to maintain our Tier 3 rights within the Big 12.

Was thinking the same thing. We may as well kiss Beaty and Hall goodbye and the program takes another step back. Just look to the east, and see how the move to change conferences, works out for a program set up to recruit Texas.

I think all 3 of the non-Texas schools who left have taken hits to their recruiting some, and major hits to their Texas recruiting.

Nebraska's Texas recruiting has tanked but they have more or less been able to lessen that impact a good deal by getting more higher quality Upper Midwest recruits and are now doing similar overall in recruiting.

Colorado's Texas recruiting went downhill in a hurry with the exception of their 1st class AFTER their move. They somewhat filled that void with more California recruits. They've gone back hard into Texas though last year and so far this year. They aren't getting any higher rated recruits out of Texas really, but still a couple solid ones. Their recruiting has fluctuated wildly since they left the Big 12, but it's been more down than up.

moo's Texas recruiting absolutely tanked after they left the Big 12, but they seem to be trying a bit harder to try and get back into Texas recruiting starting with last year's class. It's still nowhere near what it was back when they were in the Big 12, but it was the most Texas recruits they've had since with 5. They've been trying to make up for the loss of their Texas recruiting with more SE area recruits, but aren't really having a ton of luck. Their overall recruiting has been getting worse.

Here's how many Texas recruits they've pulled in starting with their 1st class AFTER their departure from the Big 12.

Nebraska has averaged 2 Texas recruits per class with an average Rivals rating of 5.61 or solid 3 star. The most Texas recruits they've had in 1 class since leaving is 4 in their 2014 class and the least is 0 in their 2016 class.

Colorado has averaged 4 Texas recruits per class with an average Rivals rating of 5.54 or low 3 star. The most Texas recruits they've had in 1 class since leaving is 8 in their 2017 class and the least is 1 in their 2016 class.

mizzery has averaged 2 Texas recruits per class with an average Rivals rating of 5.46 or high 2 star-low 3 star. The most Texas recruits they've had in 1 class since leaving is 5 in their 2017 class and the least is 0 in their 2015 class.



I think KU's Texas recruiting would also take a major hit if we left the conference for the Big 10. Not sure if we could make up for it with more Upper Midwest recruits like Nebraska has either. So, if we're talking about continued recruiting success and hence more sustained football success for KU, I think it's more vital to be in a conference with regular games in or near the recruiting hotbeds of Texas (and neighboring Louisiana), Florida (and neighboring Georgia), or California.

KU will most likely end up in the same conference as UT. PAC or B1G.
