Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

I am 100 percent behind University of Memphis President Dr. David Rudd's effort to move the University into the Big 12 conference.

And kudos to FedEx for putting up big money to help that effort.

We all owe it to the students at the University of Memphis, our city and this region to get behind Dr. Rudd's effort and cheer him on.

You may ask why? Because this is the one sure fire way to grow the University of Memphis and get more dollars for research and student development.

Big athletics, means bigger dollars overall for the school, the city and the region.

Besides it will be another attractive way to entice top talent to work here and make the Mid-South their home.

Let me know what you think of this effort. Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com, or go to my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South and leave a message there.

A Big 12 move for the University of Memphis would definitely make this a Better Mid-South.
