Too bad the players don't make the decisions
The Big 12 isn't looking to expand right now. But that didn't stop 75 percent of players surveyed at Big 12 media days from confirming they would, in fact, like to see the conference grow. Their top hope for a membership bid: the Houston Cougars.
"Houston's a top team now," one player said.
"Kind of on the come up," another agreed.
"I know that takes away from recruiting so I know coaches don't want that," a third reasoned. "That would be another good team to have to make the conference look good."
