The current state of Big 12 realignment works like this: there are about seven schools that get mentioned in every other rumor, four at a time. In the event that the Missouri Tigers leave for the SEC, some combination of Boise State, BYU Cincinnati, Louisville, TCU, West Virginia and some Texas school are said to be the leading candidates to help rebuild the Big 12. Shuffle them up and deal.
Thursday evening's configuration:
The TCU Horned Frogs have popped in and out of rumors ever since the Big East lost two schools to the ACC. The popular assumption, based on reports, is that the Oklahoma Sooners and others want them in, while the Texas Longhorns don't, but might be running out of options.
