    They were reported to be the #1 choice because they have less red tape being an independent in football. Some reports suggest they will be in the Big12 for the 2022 season. If you are referring to the anti-LDS crowd that makes noise about BYU....not sure it holds a lot of water when Baylor is in the conference.

    Not sure I understand....they could be #4 in the state for recruits, but it is Florida....so they are still in a better recruiting position than most other teams. Also, they would love to be #4 and only fighting off the Big 3 FL schools....but half of the FBS programs recruit Florida. UCF is way out in front of schools like Houston and Cincinnati in regards to facilities...both in place and currently in progress. I personally think it is a foolish bet for anyone to bet against UCF.

    Maybe routinely is a strong word if that indicates every year or 2 out of 3 years. I just meant I think they can get to a level where they get there on a pace similar to a Penn State.

    Per the Athletic and confirmed by ESPN and others.....the Big12 expects to receive 4 applications for membership next week and will approve within a week of receiving.

    Per Brett McMurphy, 4 other schools were considered....USF, Boise State, SMU and Memphis. The Big12 has informed them they will remain open to expanding again at a later date, and they will remain under consideration if that happens. It is believed that would be when the current media deal concludes.

    Personally, I think BYU is a great get for you guys(Big 12). I think UCF has the potential to be the best team in Florida in upcoming years. Houston and UC are solid gets.

    Yeah, as I have told others....it will be solid per the strength metrics, but it just does not have even 1 of those massive brands that draws money for media contracts. It is what it is....the schools will need to do what it takes to get the money to a level where they can at least continue to compete at the P5 level on the field. If that is playing on some weekdays or similar things....then you do it.

    One thing I do not know what to make of is in almost every report, there is a line how the Big12 "may" have another round of expansion before their next television contract. It is not that it is good or bad on its face.....I just find it interesting that they keep mentioning it. I mean the Big10 "may" expand at some point, but they do not make the point of telling us all the time.
