When the Big 12 mess was going on in June, the Big 12 nearly lost four members -- to the Big East.â†µ
The Big East explored the possibility of adding four Big 12 teams had the Big 12 disbanded in June, a Big East source told SNY.tv.â†µ
The Big East would have targeted Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State and Missouri, swelling its ranks to 12 football teams and 20 basketball programs, the source said.â†µ
That would've been 12 football and 20 basketball programs in the conference.â†µ
I think Mizzou, KU and KSU turned out fine.
