Assuming the Big XII implodes, losing the Big XII tournament in KC will be a tragedy

If KU (and hopefully ISU) gets into the B1G then at least one more tourney will be in Kansas City. Maryland and Rutgers got tourneys in DC and at the Garden. And the B1G will certainly wanna flaunt their addition of one of basketball’s true bluebloods.

I’ll go ahead and say it - the United Center sucks and no college event should ever be hosted in Chicago.
Fiserv in Milwaukee would be a really really cool place to hold the Big 10 tourney. Only place that could rival KC. Probably will never get in, and the Big 10 will never have it there.

Won't argue never been there.

It's just a terrible location. Maybe it was better in the late 80s/early 90s when they built it. But it's so far from anything cool. And they didn't even really build up the area around it. It just sucks even though it's the biggest arena in America (ignoring roofed NFL stadiums)

Ha i was just going to post that. Really enjoyed my time there during the first round in 2017?... and looks like they've done a ton of work since... Deer District looked like a great time (very similar to KC setup)

Yes, Kansas City would be depressed (emotionally and financially) about that as would most of us ISU fans. Is there any way you could still give OU and TX their 1.5 share (I know, I cringe to give them anything) and add 2 significant teams to boost the Big12 overall and go two divisions again of 6 each? Pipe dream, right?

F that. That’s giving in way too much and it’s only a matter of time when that wouldn’t be enough.

Well to be honest if the Big 12 continued my guess they would move it to Dallas before long anyway. I thought that was the original plan anyway. Have to continue to keep TX happy in any way possible.
