Sport Daily Brews: Another Big 12 school rumored to have Big Ten links
Corn Nation Big Ten Rankings - Week 12
The divisions are starting to take shapeNotes:
If you are paying attention to the college sports world, it is growing increasingly likely that the Big 12 will dissipate rather quickly this week. Rumors came out the Oklahoma and Texas could scurry off to the SEC and with the top dogs out of the equation, panic has set in for other programs.
Late last week,Kansas had a call with the Big Ten to see if there is room for them. Now, enters the fold as another potential suitor.
For, I can report the Cowboys have been very proactive about their next move conference wise. That includes possibly the Big 10. I'm told the Big 10 has been receptive and is looking into how a partnership could work. The AAU accreditation might not be a deal breaker.

He got too close to a space heater on the sideline, and the heater melted a big hole in his pants. Fortunately, Harbaugh was wearing multiple layers.

Things are going to get really interesting really quick here, as there will be a mad dash for other Big 12 schools to find a home.
Maybe there is a chance they stick together as the Big 12 has apparently offered more shares of the revenue to Oklahoma and Texas to try and entice them to stay. But that seems like a Band-Aid fix to a hole in a dam right now.
It will be interesting to see how the Big Ten divisions for football will change (or how much they will change) with potentially adding both Oklahoma State and Kansas. The Cowboys are usually a good team, while Kansas has been a bottom feeder for quite some time. It will be a boon for the Big Ten to add both for basketball as well with Kansas being one of the blue blood programs in the country. Oklahoma State also boasts the potential No. 1 pick in the, Cade Cunningham. With another solid class of transfers coming in, the Cowboys are starting to make a name for themselves on the court, too.
Report: Florida, Virginia Tech eyeing same head coach candidate
The Florida Gators and Virginia Tech Hokies may be competing with each other for one head coaching candidate. © SCOTT CLAUSE/USA TODAY Network via Imagn Content Services, LLC Louisiana coach Billy Napier is poised to be a hot candidate for bigger schools as the coaching carousel heats up, and that already appears to be the case. Florida is interested in bringing him in to replace Dan Mullen, and is aware of interest from Virginia Tech as well, according to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic. Have heard Florida has genuine interest in Billy Napier and knows that Va. Tech does too.
