Driving back from a breakfast meeting this morning, I thought I heard on The Ticket that the Big12 is to announce the addition of Florida State sometime today...Did I hear that correctly?

Yep, heard it as well. Stated the little birdie told him there could be an announcement by the end of the week.

Heard him say that too.

Normally he's an "I'll believe it when I see it" kind of guy, so for him to say that may carry some weight.

TCU will be in the Big 12 East with Florida State, West Virginia, Clemson, and Kansas State.

I'm afraid he might be serious.

That's what bothers me about adding eastern teams to get to 12.

If Clemson and FSU are the eastern teams we add to get to 12, I would hope there'd be ZERO complaints. Those are two very solid additions. Much better than raiding the Big East leftovers.

Kansas?

FSU games were a blast the times I went. Of course that was back in 2001-2002.

Sweet, we'll be in the conference championship every year.

More schools in the league = less dependent on the whims of UT for our long term future. Cannot possibly be bad.

Makes sense to me.
After TCU takes a few of UT's top recruits. UT decides, time to move TCU to the Big 12 East, now they can tell parents and prospective recruits, "You see, we play all of our games in Texas and Okalhoma. TCU plays all of theirs in Florida."
POW!

I'm not complaining about the programs added, not at all.

What I am complaining about is a competitive disadvantage for TCU, if there is a Texas-Oklahoma division (UTx, OU, OSU, TTech, Baylor, a Kansas school) and an Also-ran division (TCU, a Kansas school, ISU, WVU, 2 east coast newbies).

We'll be stuck, again, playing a bunch of away games at distant locations that will not support a lot of TCU fan travel for our away games compared to driving to Texas and Oklahoma schools. Our opponents, while outstanding football programs for the most part, would not be traditional rivals for TCU. Disappointing if such a divisional conference develops.

Throw Baylor in the East too, plus a guaranteed rotating matchup against UT and Tech each year, and you've got yourself a deal.

I wouldn't mind that arrangement at all.

WCJ is just guessing on the divisions. Heck, I'm dubious they are even coming to the Big 12...

In that case I hope the B12 goes P12 style and guarantees all the Texas schools play eachother every year.

I will be surprised if there are any more conference moves before the legal cases around the Maryland exit fee are resolved. It would be interesting, though, if FSU made the next move. The assumption by most re-alignment nerds has been that the Big10 would take who they want, then the SEC would respond, then the Big12 could get some high quality leftovers.

I am serious. Who do you think will go to the East if they need a team? Texas? OU? TCU as the last man in the lifeboat will get the red-headed step child treatement.

I'm not complaining, it would be a fun division.
