    Well, we will never sniff the Big 12 ever. Nor will we ever sniff anything bigger than cusa if we ever get there that is. I hate being pessimistic but the sad truth is we are a catastrophe and ship wreck. I wish those Universities with legit leadership well but we are stuck with farmerville and the lower rung. The only difference between us and the hoax is that we actually have a willing fan base and the potential/ resources to rise above. I would trade Farmer for Wickstrom of Ulm any day.

    I think they have about as much chance at getting in as Tulane.

    Houston is in the top tier conversation

    Until last night, Houston had very little chance. UT and Houston Pres struck a deal.

    Tulane is facing very little opposition, occupies a coveted part of the region, major market, and a private academic power with influential alumni all over the country.

    Tulane has as good a chance as anyone bidding right now.

    No one is going to buy this, but I think we do have a slight chance to move. By default, of course. There is a good chance for real upheaval in the G5. For example, Marshall reportedly wants back into the MAC for travel reasons. After Big 12 raids AAC, CUSA goes belly up. Being that we were on the list for expansion into the AAC (had they voted to go to 16 teams), I believe we will have some options. Whether it's AAC, or a revamped G5 conference.

    I meant we have zero chance of big 12....like absolutely zero...Tulane has a chance. I agree we could have shot but the deal will have to be made by someone other than Farmer, he is incapable of closing anything...he can't even close stuff handed to him on a silver platter.

    Gotchya.
    Our only chance would be to let Jimmy handle the room. In fact, send Farmer back to Alaska for a while. Let Harris work his AAC contacts and if the chips fall right, we have a teeny tiny chance.
