    NOOOOOOO! Now Baylor has his phone number. And he'll be subject to the pretzel logic that is BaylorFan.:scared2:

    But Wilner also pointed out their major flaws for the PAC-12.

    Yeah, but these are the same people who were convinced that the SEC would be beating down their door any minute, to join A&M in the move to the SEC. Duh-loo-sion-al!

    I wish he would have looked at a Kansas, new Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma option. Aka the allbuffs plan for expansion.

    ??? The Allbuffs plan is no more expansion. And that combo makes no sense: NM doesn't fit and Ok's going nowhere w/o Ok St.

    I commented in the comments section calling out Wilner for dismissing Oklahoma State while saying that Olympic sports were important...I told him OSU has 50 NCs versus 48 for Texas. OU & OSU to the Pac-12 would be one nice get but I don't think the money increases or stays the same in this situation.

    Texas isn't part of any allbuffs plan for expansion.

    I would want OU (and would take Okie light to get them), but I don't know where you find 2 other schools that make sense. And there is no reason to go to 14 teams. 12 or 16 are the ones that make sense.
