Big 12 Expansion: Add Memphis and Cincinnati

As another day goes by, it’s another day the Big 12 (10) Conference finds its way back into the news for the comically wrong reasons. At its football media days earlier this week, the Big 12 decided to do two things: 1) not drop sanctions on Baylor for its bumbling of the sexual assault saga,…
