If you want to read more about actual football before we dive into conference realignment, check out this week's Alphabetical from Spencer, and the Numerical from Bill.

After Oklahoma leveraged a possible Pac-12 invite into concessions from UT was told no invitation to join the Pac-12 would be extended whatever the hell it was that happened, the Kansas Board of Regents met yesterday and decided the Big 12 is the best place for K-State and KUGovernor Brownback thinks so, too.

The Daily Oklahoman lists BYU, TCU and West Virginia as the Big 12's top expansion targets.

Cole Manbeck interviewed Jon Wefald about the formation of the Big 12. Here's a good trivia question you can spring on people at your next tailgate: Which of the current BCS AQ conferences first considered becoming a 16-team superconference? Answer: The Big 12.
