Posted May 23rd, 2016

Big 12 chancellors, presidents and athletics directors are meeting this week in Irving to discuss the state of the league. Chief among those discussions: Should the Big 12 expand, or stay the way it is, currently with 10 teams? And how likely is it that the league will just dissolve?

Bevo Beat has put together a series of blogs discussing the Big 12’s expansion options. They’ll look at two schools a day for the rest of the week and weigh the pros and cons of each considered team joining the conference. First up for discussion this week are BYU and Boise State.

One reader was annoyed about why the Big 12 was called the Big 12 when the conference only has 10 teams, and thought the conference had become “unwieldy.”

Some were fed up with the conference and all the talk of expansion.

As far as expansion talk, many readers weighed in on how they would rearrange the conference.

And everyone had a lot of thoughts about whether or not the conference should add a championship game in football.
