Does any one here have ties to LSUA or know anyone who does? They held a logo contest back in August & have yet to post anything about it. Wondering what became of it, I've tried to make contact but haven't had much luck. Below is the add they posted. If this is not the right place for this by all means please move it to where it belongs, thnx! https://www.lsua.edu/news/noteworthy/2017/08/01/lsua-athletics-logo-contest
So the vote to change the '12 teams for a conference championship' is going to take place on January 15. If the vote does not pass, there is a very good chance that the Big XII expands. Even if it does pass, I'd still like to see the Big XII get back to 12. So my question to everyone is: would you like to see the Big XII expand back to 12, who should they go get, and why? My personal opinion: As much as I'd love to steal other Power 5 teams such as Iowa, Arkansas, or Northwestern, I don't think that any of those schools would leave their conferences for a less-prosperous Big XII. So, I would have to go with Cincinnati and Memphis for the following reasons: The markets in those cities is large and ready for the taking. You can steal the recruiting market from Ohio State with Cincy and from Tennessee and Vandy in Memphis. Breaking into Big 10 and SEC territory with each pickup respectively. Geographical hole-filler between West Virginia and the rest of the conference. Both schools have strong up-and-coming football programs. Incredible basketball history, especially in recent years. The ability to fill the old divisions: North--Iowa State, Kansas, K-State, West Virginia, Memphis, Cincy South--Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, TCU, Baylor, Texas Tech Any other thoughts? Anyone agree? Let me hear your opinions!
