@ICThawk said in Sure tell , tell signs of Big 12 Demise as if we didn't know:
Other than OU & UT, I don’t think any school out of the B12 has a “guaranteed” home. As of right now, I think KU will PROBABLY come out OK…and surprisingly probably to the SEC, despite our football!! UT & KU both have pretty long records with ESPN so I’m thinking that ESPN doesn’t want to lose either if it can help it. So, unless there is some kind of “deal” between Fox & ESPN “exchanging” some teams, I think ESPN would try to keep both. As the conferences ESPN is “all in” on are the ACC & SEC (as well as the AAC), think only the SEC makes sense geographically and compatibility wise (though admittedly the “culture” of the SEC may be a little “odd” for KU). (Do remember that we may be beginning to “adjust” to that culture given our AD’s and football coach’s lineages.). Other than OU, UT and PROBABLY KU and TT, think the rest of the conference will be “as is” and simply expand mostly out of the AAC to get to 12 or 14 (or even possibly “merge” with it). It could well become a “tweener” conference in the pecking order with the Power Conferences (B1G, SEC), then “Secondary Conferences” (ACC & PAC12 , possibly with the BigEast considered for basketball only), then the B12, then a “reformed” AAC , followed by all the other conferences in some order. However, there are still several years until “realignment hell” is upon us so things could well change (for the better, or for the worse) in that time frame! Buckle up…it could be a wild ride!!

@kjayhawks I enjoyed watching Bloomberg get blown out of the water. Thought Warren won the debate, then Bernie. Buttigieg and Klobuchar nullified each other. Felt bad for Amy. Pete was kind of a d—. Maybe Biden did ok in that he didn’t do anything good or bad. The talking heads think he did well. I hardly notice him.
