POLL: Does The Big 12 Need To Expand?

Warning: Hot Takes lie ahead.

Former Cowboys Ride For Free managing editor Chris Ross now runs a site covering all of the Big 12, The Land Grant Gauntlet. It's a great site, full of news from every school and all that jazz.

While all of this recent Big 12 possibly evaporating or expanding has been going on, Mr. Ross has been fairly vocal in wondering out loud whether the conference actually has to expand. To be fair, he has a point. The conference makes plenty of money, gets teams into bowls and the conference is as strong as ever (in the sense that it's no longer just Texas and Oklahoma running the schedule with ease.)

The Land Grant Gauntlet posted this article today, July 3. It's very well written and has quotes to back up his theory. I agree, partially. Last year was an anomaly, it's rare when a team, let alone two, go through the year with one loss each. The Big 12 would have benefited greatly from an actual champion named after a championship game, but that just isn't going to happen.

But enough of what two writers who spend to much time overthinking these things have to say. We at CRFF want to know what the readers have to say about the situation. Does the Big 12 need to expand, or does it need to evaporate so OSU and OU can go to the SEC and never have to deal with Texas again? Do make sure to read his article, though, as it's pretty important to read if you want to know what we're talking about.
