OU and OSU Fans: What’s Next for Big 12?

{/literal}{include file="blk:carlsonblog_header"}{literal}

Texas A&M is a goner.

The Aggies made official Wednesday morning what had been speculation for weeks — they are planning to leave the Big 12.

So, what’s next?

We want to hear from you, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State fans. We want to know what you want to see happen and why.

Should the Big 12 try to remain a nine-team league? Should it add more schools, and if so, who should it add? Should the Sooners and the Cowboys bolt for a different conference, and if so, which one? Should the state schools stay together or split up? Should it be every man for himself?

Or should something else happen?

We want to know.

Post your comments below, or you can email me at Be sure to include your full name and your city or town of residence; we might include some of your comments in The Oklahoman or on

And who knows? Maybe we’ll figure out how to fix this mess.
