Big 12 reportedly has met with representatives from University of Cincinnati.


Just when you thought college football conference expansion silliness was a thing of the past, along comes a report that the Big 12 has been talking to Cincinnati about depicting from the AAC.

This apparently isn't a knee-jerk reaction to the Big 12 Mike DeCoursey of The Sporting News reports that Big 12 officials and representatives of the University of Cincinnati held a meeting before the announcement of the teams in the inaugural College Football Playoff.

No offers for Cincinnati to join the conference were made at the meeting. The writing on the wall for the Big 12 is on the wall, however. Not having a conference title game hurt the Big 12 this season, CFP-wise. The conference would need two more members to revive its title game, which it hasn't held since 2010.
