Apparently Louisville is "Pushing Hard" to join Big 12

5

We haven't had a realignment story for a while so what the hell, why not now. If you look at point number 6 in this piece, Austin American Statesman columnist Kirk Bohls writes, "Said one Big 12 high-level administrator to me, "Louisville is really pushing us hard to join, but I don’t see the Big 12 wanting to expand." I know this topic gets old, but given that our unprecedented run is being diminished by both conference affiliation and strength of schedule, a lot of us have been grumbling about getting more high profile out of conference games to at least help our case. Jumping into a big boy conference could clear up that concern pretty quickly. While I have doubted that Jurich has been asleep at the wheel, the silence that has fallen on this topic lately has been a little bit of reminder that we are still stuck in wait-and-see mode with the future of our program. Frustrating though it may be for us to not have as much control over our future as we'd all like, it looks like some are going to bat for us to join the Big 12 in very persistent fashion.
