I' ve seen numerous posting saying that KU wouldn't be invited to a conference due to our bad football program. If that is true, how the hell did Rutgers get invited to the big 10?

Big 10 is the most likely destination for KU if the Big 12 falls apart. I believe a few B1G schools were pushing for KU when the Big 12 was on shaky grounds before the GOR was put in place.

Because it's not true and realignment hasn't and isn't driven directly by how good a school's football team is/was. It's driven directly by $$.

Football is not nearly as important for conference realignment as moronic ruralite internet message board posters believe.

KU will be fine.

B1G will be our landing site IF it happens, but a stronger football team would GUARANTEE it.

Rutgers was invited to the Big 10 so they could get their hand print in the New York/New Jersey area.
