Well, the B1G isn’t sitting on the sidelines and is reportedly in contact with Oklahoma State. According to Dylan Buckingham, the two sides have engaged in discussions and the conference is “receptive” to the idea.
Buckingham also made it clear that nothing has been set in stone and these are just early state conversations.
For #OKState, I can report the Cowboys have been very proactive about their next move conference wise. That includes possibly the Big 10. I’m told the Big 10 has been receptive and is looking into how a partnership could work. The AAU accreditation might not be a deal breaker.

Words are getting a little twisted out there. I want to make it clear that the Big 10 is just a possibility for #OKState. One of many. There’s nothing imminent and there’s no guarantee the Big 10 would welcome OSU in. Talks are simply exploratory at this point.

If Oklahoma State is a real option for the B1G, then I’m more than okay with it. The B1G can’t afford to sit on the sidelines as conferences are pillaged.

The Cowboys have a solid football program and a basketball program that can be competitive. Adding them also expands the B1G’s footprint.
Plus, they have Mike Gundy! That alone might make it worth it!
I have some bad news.

I promised you that this situation would get out of control, and I was 100% correct. I can’t wait to see how it all shakes out.
