Apparently, school and conference officials from the Big 12 and the Big East have been discussing ways to merge if Texas and Oklahoma leave the Big 12, a person involved in the discussions told The Associated Press. According to ESPN...

If all goes accordingly, the Big 12 would have Missouri, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State left. While the Big East still has six football members, Cincinnati, Connecticut, South Florida, Rutgers, Louisville and West Virginia, plus next years's TCU. And I guess there's your new conference, folks.
