Nerdinger: the fact that they're "far from the footprint of the rest of the conference" is EXACTLY why they SHOULD NOT add them!

I didn't comment on that. It's just that if they're adding one, it's smart to add the other too.

I don't think just one of UCF or USF gets in the Big XII.

If either gets the nod, they both will. It'd be stupid to do just one.

And frankly, based on that, I think it's more likely that neither get in. I could see a scenario where Cincinnati and Memphis get added in the "east", and two of these 3 get added in the "west" ... BYU, Boise State or Colorado State.

If the Big XII were going to do something like this, they should've done it last year, when both Fox and ESPN were contractually obligated to pay for new teams. IIRC, the reason ESPN ponied up more money was to get OUT of that clause (Fox called the Big XII's bluff, as I recall). At any rate, if they expanded now, Fox would have to pay the current rate, but ESPN would have the option to say "that's nice - more tier 3 inventory for you guys, but we're not interested". So being willing to "take a haircut" would mean nothing if there was NO NEW HAIR to cut!

I mean that I wasn't making a judgment on whether their distance to the rest of the league should be held against them. A gutted Big 12 is going to have to expand AAC-style in order to remain the dominant non-power conference.

RE: B12 Expansion Model
Individually, UCF and USF make good candidates. Together they are excellent as travel partners since neither are near a current Big 12 member. West Virginia needs a travel partner for the rest of the members and Cincinnati makes the most sense.

What wouldn't make sense is adding another school on an island such as BYU or UConn. Another Texas school like Houston would help fortify the state in a location the conference is currently lacking in and where the SEC has a strong foothold. Despite a fifth Texas school, the percentage of Texas schools would go down in the conference.
