As I read the following tweet, a thought crossed my mind:

David Boren said Bob Bowlsby will “re-contact those schools that have contacted us. Evaluate what proposals they may make” about joining B12
After 2 years of having a “composition committee,” and then two separate presentations for which they paid consultants millions of dollars (one with a TV network, another without one), can it really be said that they need more data regarding specific schools?
My best guess is that they already have been provided data for the best schools to add, and are simply negotiating the best deal those schools are willing to make about joining the conference.
