I have not heard of SMU to the Big 12, where did that come from?

No where of consequence, its just that they're bball team is hot right now and the Big 12 is just being talked about by some people who don't understand the intricacies of conference realignment. (not knocking JP since he's just throwing out hypotheticals)

Same as TCU before who had no chance of getting in...until A&M left. SMU has virtually the same chance as TCU had...until Texas leaves. On another thread I gave them a 10% at being the next State of Texas school invited in with UTexas still in the conference but that obviously doesn't included the many out of state candidates in the MWC/AAC plus BYU...their real odds are very low single digits.

Frank (when you fix his bad math) had them at the 3rd to last of possible candidates only beating out UNLV and Rice. And personally, I think they're lower than Rice (as I think he under values the benefit of playing in Houston for recruiting exposure and creeping effect of the SEC in the area with A&M/LSU, also I think he should value their academics higher as the Big 12 is in needs of them).

CAA was trying for A10-like status until they lost VCU, GMU, and ODU. CoC and Elon don't make up for those losses, nor would Furman or Fairfield if they are next in line. Plus, if Furman does go, wouldn't Wofford be next?

These guys thought they had a shot at GWU in an A10 Doomsday scenario. They and Siena are the only speculated candidates who put hoops back into respectability. I bet both would be part of a new A10, still better than CAA.

Thanks.

I don't think UT likes SMU. We never play them in any sport, that I can remember.
We play Rice almost every year...sometimes in multiple sports.
SMU is playing other SWC rivals, though. And their bb program is doing pretty well, this year.

Yeah, if UT has anything to say about it....Rice will get the call before SMU. Rice would also pair up well with Tulane. And Tulane is building a nice new on campus fb stadium. It's nothing like Baylor's new digs...but, still...for Tulane it's pretty cool.

Baylor's new stadium can be seen here...FYI:

I really feel that Baylor is making some large strides towards relevancy. For a mid sized private school...they have been doing well in the last five years in major sports. In minor sports they have always been solid. An on campus stadium should really help their game day presence on national tv.

Sorry for the side track.....
Back to the CAA.

No where. I was discussing UMass' approach of "wait and see what transpires" with the American before they pull their basketball/other sports out of the A-10.

Hence the "I don't think..." part.

Article out of Hampton Roads(previously posted in another thread)with comments from SBC Commish who says that JMU has recently indicated that they are not interested in joining the SBC and "may" not be interested in jumping to FBS if they do not receive an invite from a conference "like" the MAC.Link at http://www.hamptonroads.com/2014/04/sun ... remain-caa
