From NewsOK:


Florida State would replace Nebraska as a national brand for the Big 12. Clemson or Miami would be a step up from Colorado, and while Louisville would be about the same, Louisville’s basketball would trump CU’s. So if you believe that West Virginia and TCU are a match for Missouri and Texas A&M (which they are competitively, just not geographically), then Big 12 football actually is an improved product.

Again, the downside — and it’s a big downside — is the geographic bloatedness. The Big 12 then would stretch from Florida to West Virginia to Iowa to Texas. That’s a big chunk of real estate.

Of course, Florida State probably feels like it’s conference has been stretched already. In recent years, Boston College, Syracuse and Pitt have joined the ACC.
How would the Big 12 split into divisions? I assume the Oklahoma and Texas schools would remain together in a division. That would promote some level of continuity, since five of the six schools (all but TCU) were in a division together starting in 1996. The other division would have no geographic semblance — Kansas State, Kansas, Iowa State, West Virginia, Florida State and Clemson or Miami.
