I have been away for way too long. Nothing written since about halfway through the Big 12 men’s basketball tournament in Kansas City. I wrote exactly zero characters about Missouri losing in the round of 64 or Kansas making it all the way to the title game. I fell off the face of the internet. Since I have been away, I haven’t really done much reading up on or tracking all of the scenarios on the possible, if not probable, Big 12 expansion. It seems like for the first time since the term “Conference Expansion” became exclusive to summer-time for NCAA conferences that the Big 12 is leading the charge. I don’t know if it is based on the absence of Dan Beebe, the presence of Chuck Neinas or the simple fact that other schools from other conferences like the direction that the Big 12 is heading over their current conference. I guess NCAA conferences aren’t excluded from the ever rising divorce rate in America. I did stumble across this blog posting from Berry Tramel, who writes for The Oklahoman, and I really enjoyed his commentary on the teams that may be joining the Big 12 in the near future. It’s a great read and can be found at the link below.
