I think to survive they might add "city teams", Memphis, Houston, Cincinnati, and .... someone else to get to 12.

They would often have the highest ranked champion aisde from the main four.

The Big 12 could have had Louisville and Cincinnati a decade ago.  They would have been reasonably close neighbors for WVU.  I bring that up because I advocated it at the time.

Cincinnati might not be interested
It might come down to who wins the war to raid the other, the Big 12 or the AAC.
Given the Big 12's history of screwing it up, my money would be on the AAC.

I think about OSU.  Even with the stability of Gundy as coach, good teams in the last decade, and pretty nice facilities they can't fill a 60,000 seat stadium.  Their biggest draw was the OU game and they tied it to season tickets only.  That is on them.

Completely agree on the revenue sharing and the fact that A&M was one of the benefactor. Was this a carry-over from the Big 8 or something that was pushed when the Big 12 started in 1996?  

I always thought the Big 12 as it was originally formed was a great conference.

With the news of Oklahoma and Texas each informing the Big 12 Conference of their departure on Monday, the future of the league is in serious jeopardy. It seems as if the remaining eight teams will disperse, though the possibility of adding teams remains. Those teams, according to ESPN's Heather Dinich, could be BYU, Cincinnati and Houston.

Put me in the group that thinks there is every possibility the Big 12 will survive

They can add at least 2 teams fairly easily

The key is the TV deal they are able to reach

Yes there will be less money available but it would be better then just disbursing

if no programs are poached, they will still have it better than the G5 conferences

There may be a team poached but unless 3 or 4 are poached they stand a chance of surviving

BYU, Cincy, Houston and Memphis. Seems pretty obvious. 

Not sure who else would even be in contention. UCF? Boise? Probably too far.

UCF has potential but they need to ditch the directional name. Lots of students, recent success, and it’s in Orlando. Who doesn’t want to go to Orlando ?

I'd be surprised if the Big 12 'big timed' BYU this time around, given their current situation, but they have done it before. So it's certainly possible. 

If so, then they'd almost have to add UCF as the twelfth team, directional or not.
