No way in hell the Big 10 takes a small religious school like Baylor with its scandal history no matter how good their bb teams are. I have thought all along, the two school positioned worst for a breakup of the conference are Baylor and WV.I went over to the Ohio State forum. Both Baylor and OkieSt (there is only one OSU on that forum) were mentioned possibilities for expansion. Baylor is seen as a good basketball school and based in Texas with great recruiting. TCU was also mentioned in regards to the Texas recruiting and good football program. I never saw any mention of Texas Tech or Kansas State as expansion possibilities.
Okie State would be an interesting choice, but they are NOT an AAU school, the Big 10 has always maintain that was a deal breaker, not sure why that would change now, but who knows.
TCU is an interesting school, small religious school, but not crazy like Baylor about it. Located in the Metroplex, would be good for recruiting. Decent football history and and up and comer in BB. But a very small fan base, and with cord cutting how many TCU fans are going to pay to stream their games?
