Now that the Big 12 meetings are over for the athletic directors and head coaches, there appears to be a consensus that the conference must expand and have a CCG in order to have more than a 62% chance of reaching the playoffs in a given year.
62% may sound pretty acceptable until you realize it is the lowest of all of the power five conferences. A ten to fifteen percent increase in the odds would be very substantial. Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports was at the meetings and is convinced that Cincinnati and Central Florida will become new additions to the conference.
Florida and Ohio have a lot of TV sets and any new members would likely receive Big 12 revenue on an incremental basis much like WVU and TCU. Of course the school presidents and chancellors have the final say and will be meeting late this month and early June to debate the data received by the ADs and make any decisions.
In my humble opinion, if you look closely at the wall there is indeed handwriting on it.
