Texas Doesn't Need UConn, But Other Big 12 Schools Could Use Boost From This Area

If the Big 12 presidents prove to be interested in expansion only in the narrowest and nearsighted terms, why would they want UConn?

If this entire exercise in data collection and latest round of rampant speculation is nothing more than a prelude to a return to a conference football championship game, why would they expand a regional mind-set, a today's football game is everything-and-the-only-thing obsession?

Grab Cincinnati as a travel partner for West Virginia.

Grab Memphis. Or if they're willing to bite the bullet on further recruiting erosion in Texas, grab Houston.

Or don't add any schools at all, remain a 10-team league and still have a conference title...
