They're reporting sources close to Big 12 state USF under consideration along with UCF, Cincinnati, and UConn. Will be discussed at B12 meetings soon.

The only way we get in is if they expand by 4. I see USF/UCF as a package deal along with Cincy and uconn/byu. Neither us or uff offers anything individually but together it adds way more value than any individual.

Here is what a source close to the situation has told Sporting News about possible expansion:

BYU might stand as the most attractive potential partner because of its large following, excellent facilities and considerable wealth, but the challenges of adding a partner that declines to participate in Sunday competition is among the obstacles that appear to be too considerable.

That leaves three possible scenarios for the expansion issue.

1. The Big 12 could choose to move east to add Cincinnati and Connecticut. Cincinnati has developed the most consistent football program of potential expansion candidates and is located in a major media market. UConn is four-time NCAA champion in men’s basketball and also adds the cachet of the dynastic women’s basketball program.

2. For football recruiting purposes and long-term potential, the Big 12 could advance into Florida by adding Central Florida and South Florida.

Yeah but how many have been about sources close to the Big 12 reporting on who they are considering.
