Conference Realignment: Does Big 12 Conference Need Two More Teams To Live Up To Name And Billing?

Conference Realignment: Does Big 12 Conference Need Two More Teams To Live Up To Name And Billing?

The Big 12 Conference is not living up to its name as of right now, as they are not nearly as big in terms of number of teams, falling short even of what their name may indicate. The Big 12 does not have 12 teams, but rather 10. In terms of how many teams these other power conferences already have – as well as how many they continue to add – the Big 12 is small. In terms of stature, of course, not from a competition level. As college football is concerned, the only conference that can claim that they are better than the Big 12 is the SEC, and even that is still close.

With the announcement that the Big 10 will add the Maryland Terrapins and Rutgers Scarlet Knights, and that the ACC could add the Louisville Cardinals and Connecticut Huskies, and perhaps even the SEC adding the Florida State Seminoles down the road, the question is being asked, why is the Big 12 not rumored to be going after any more teams? Doesn’t the Big 12 want to expand?
