This is the most unfounded speculation I've seen in a long time.

Speculation or not, but as what was talked about John Brown, these colleges and universities either get football, or be left behind. Wichita State is a story program from the past with football, basketball and baseball. So, they could find a homecif the do add football.

Yeah, but it's just so much speculation in one post.

Wichita State is delaying club football.
Maybe because they want to add football sooner.
Maybe because they want to join the Big 12.
Maybe because the Big 12 will want to keep a presence in Kansas (I'm guessing Kansas State doesn't count).
Maybe because Kansas is leaving for the Big Ten.
Maybe because the Big Ten wants to expand again.

That's a pretty big house of cards you've built there.

Fact:They never played or started the team

>Maybe because they want to add football sooner.

Fact:There are a lot of buzz about football to the school to be re-added.

>Maybe because they want to join the Big 12.

Fact:There were emails surfacing that the Big 10 are in talks about adding Kansas and Texas.

>Maybe because the Big 12 will want to keep a presence
>in Kansas (I'm guessing Kansas State doesn't count).

Fact:Kansas State counts for football, but their basketball sucks. Fact:Wichita State could replace the missing basketball in the Big 12. Wichita State would be #1 right now in the Big 12 standings with their unbeaten record. Their basketball is noteworthy and their baseball makes strides.

>Maybe because Kansas is leaving for the Big Ten.

Fact:It could be a done deal if the Big 10 gets them and Texas. Their both AAU schools in the mold of the Big 10 schools.

>Maybe because the Big Ten wants to expand again.

Fact:The Big 10 commish already said they want to expand to 22 teams. Texas and Kansas are 2 of the teams. Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Virginia are another 3. Notre Dame is another. The only other AAU schools are Colorado, Washington, Oregon, California, UCLA, USC, Stanford, Cal.-Davis, Rice, TulaneVanderbilt, Duke, Wake Forest, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, Stony Brook and Buffalo.

Not hard to figure out what is going on when the comments of the conference leaders appear in the newspapers and on tv.

Woah, woah, woah. Were are you even getting this? There's no way in hell that Jim Delaney said they plan to add 8 more teams! Quit making stuff up.

I don't know, Davey...

You have lost connection with anything resembling reality. Unless you cite some sources, everything you've said is absolutely worthless.
