Tom Herman thought Houston would go to the Big 12
“Did I think so? Yeah, I did, to be quite honest with you,” Herman said when asked if he thought Houston was going to be the Big 12’s newest member. “I didn’t concern myself at all with things that I can’t control, but when you sit back and you’ve got a spare few seconds you think about the opportunities for the Big 12. We’re the best candidate for conference expansion in the entire country. Regardless of it’s the Big 12. We’re a tier one academic institution, we’re in the fourth-largest market in the country and we’re playing really good football right now and making unbelievable upgrades to our facilities and our program.
“I really thought that if the Big 12 did expand, then we were a no-brainer.”
