The Big 12’s not expanding now, but these two will be frequently discussed if it ever does.

Contrary to the writer, no we're not packaged deal. One team has one stuff repeatedly and the other has done nothing and can't get 10k people to show up in their rent-a-stadium. The only reason they'd get invited is if they got caught in the gravity of said hypothetical invite.

... Which is which? 03-wink

UCF. They own their own OCS. They actually get REAL attendence.

Average attendance per year (10 year sample size).

2007 - USF 53,170, UCF 44018
2008 - USF 49,690, UCF 39596
2009 - USF 52,553, UCF 38078
2010 - USF 40,849, UCF 39614
2011 - USF 44,550, UCF 34282
2012 - USF 44,130, UCF 34608
2013 - USF 34,702, UCF 42084
2014 - USF 30,694, UCF 37812
2015 - USF 26,578, UCF 30065
2016 - USF 37,539, UCF 35802

10 year average: USF 41,446, UCF 37,596

"It's not a lie if you believe"

In addition, War on I4 football rivalry results

USF 6 wins, UCF 3 wins. Cumulative score: USF 307, UCF 189

Average score of entire series: USF 34, UCF 21

Those attendance numbers are fudged and absolutely no one believes them. The series is 3-2 in favor of UCF since we’ve been in the same conference.

I have a news flash for you. Big news, so pay attention. Everyone "fudges" announced attendance numbers, including UCF. Across every sport, professional and college. There are a lot of examples of UCF majorly fudging numbers as well. Heck a couple years ago, you guys announced 30K a game and you might not have had 8-10K in the stands vs. ECU and USF (seriously, you and I both know it - entire sections were empty, go back and watch the highlights).

That said, UCF is a great candidate. I like UCF. If the B12 expands, they'll get in. But USF is also worthy. 20 straight weeks in AP poll (something no in in AAC has done in years) and back to back 10-2 and 11-2 seasons. That's pretty good. So pooh pooh USF all you want, but in the end, if there ever is an expansion (I don't think there will be) rest assured, USF will be right there. The B12 would be stupid not to add both USF and UCF and lock down the huge I4 corridor.

You mean the stadium that is literally falling apart?

Yeah ... that's exactly what the Big XII wants to bring into their conference.

https://www.clickorlando.com/news/corros...ll-stadium

... after a decade of exposure to Central Florida's humidity and other corrosive elements, parts of Spectrum Stadium are now beginning to crumble, according to a new report.

In a study commissioned by UCF over the summer, engineers determined that widespread corrosion on the structure's steel framing has caused significant and costly damage.

"Some of these areas presented immediate life safety concerns because of their degradation and/or location," the report stated.

Correct, and to be fair, I believe UCF is fixing this problem, or has at least started to. I actually like their stadium, unlike some others, who knock it for supposedly being a bounce house.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/classifie...story.html

The decade-old University of Central Florida football stadium is rusted and corroded, with some “immediate life safety concerns,” according to an engineering report that says repairs could cost $14 million.

University officials say they have fixed the worst problems and are weighing long-term plans.

According to the report, which was contracted by the university and completed in August, Spectrum Stadium’s rust problems have affected the structural integrity of the 45,000-seat venue at the university’s main campus in east Orange County, Corrosion affects more than 80,000 square feet of the stadium, it said — four stairways had heavily rusted supports and a potential for “significant section loss” at the time, the TLC Engineering report found. Areas of the stadium’s fireproofing were cracked, corroded and graded “failing.”

Left unabated, this presents a significant loss risk of undermining the structural integrity of the stadium framing,” according to the 455-page report. Rust is so pervasive that it has “progressed to structural damage” in some locations. Maps specified corrosion “hot” spots throughout the stadium, with more concentrated in lower-bowl areas.

Well ... out west I see 3 really solid candidates. Football, facilities, and markets, all would help the Big XII. In no particular order ...

BYU, Boise State and Colorado State


If you go east from the plains states, there are several solid candidates too. Again in no particular order ...

Cincinnati, USF, UCF, Memphis, UConn, East Carolina


And in the "footprint" of the Big XII, there is Houston. There are other possibilities in the footprint too, but Houston is ahead of them all right now.

The newbies gladly take a financial haircut through the remaining term of the existing B12 media deal, while adding 3-6 games of weekly B12 inventory with brands that have proven the ability to grab good TV ratings over the last 3 years.

Immediately launch a network using Texas' and BYU's broadcast facilities and capabilities with instant primary distribution in four top-20 DMAs in Texas and Florida and ten top-50 DMAs nationwide:
-#5 DFW
-#7 Houston
-#13 Tampa
-#18 Orlando
-#30 Salt Lake City
-#33 Kansas City
-#35 Cincinnati
-#39 Austin
-#41 Oklahoma City
-#50 Memphis

Apply counter-pressure against all other P5 conferences:
- v. SEC with UCF, USF, Houston, Cincinnati, WVU, Memphis
- v. B1G with Cincinnati and WVU
- v. ACC with UCF, USF, Cincinnati, WVU
- v. PAC with BYU and keep out of Texas

The only P5 conference with at least TWO teams in each of Texas and Florida.

Recruiting reach expands to Florida and improves in Texas, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah (which is underrated - as many top recruits as Oklahoma and more than Iowa, Kansas, and West Virginia combined).

I think we just went through all of this last year....the Big12 is not expanding. Waste of time

SMUmustangs, concur. The B12 fairly recently spent months and months looking at those schools, in a beauty pageant way, with their merits and baggage, along with assessing the demographics involved. They have no intention of expanding.

So much focus is on schools aspiring to joining up; rather than the attitudes, conditions, and intentions of member B12 schools, and where they may see themselves five or six years from now. Until they are clear with that, there's nothing to expect.

As I already said, UCF is a good candidate. Congrats on the great season. Seriously. 04-cheers

Not that the Big 12 would ask for UCF's input in an expansion situation, but I would think having USF join too would be beneficial for UCF not just from a rivalry standpoint but from a practical travel standpoint. Given how far away Florida is from the core of the conference, having a travel partner would be very helpful.
