I would like to see the Big 12 vet expansion candidates by scheduling them in football.
hi bigshotbob, welcome to the site.
Who specifically would you like to see?
I know SMU for example has scheduled Tech, Baylor, TCU, and A&M (while in Big 12 and in SEC) pretty regularly over the past few years (Texas refuses to pay them due to long exsisting bad blood made during the 80's scandal).
Houston played Okie St and Tech a few years back but is trying to mirror TCU's success in the MWC by not scheduling anybody OOC until they get their BCS bid or two but they have some games with Tech and Kansas starting in 2017.
Rice has played/will play Texas, A&M, Baylor, Okie St, Tech, and Kansas.
Cincy played OU a while back and has some history w/ WVU but nothing else is scheduled.
UConn played ISU and Baylor a while back and has some history w/ WVU but nothing else is scheduled.
Tulane hasn't played anyone in the Big 12 in a while.
Memphis has a series with Kansas coming up but other than that nothing.
BYU has some history with TCU, and has played OU and Texas (last game of the UT series is this year) recently but nothing else scheduled.
There are others that could be considered like Boise St (for fb only and only if they add BYU as fb only), Colorado St (only if they add BYU as full mbr), and UCF/USF but they seem like longshots at best.
My preference is either add UConn/Cincy as full members for best available all round sports adds, BYU/Boise as fb onlys if they literally only want a CCG, and Rice/Tulane for academic/destination adds (swap Rice for Memphis if they don't want another Texas school, better at bball/worse in academics)
