Big 12 to talk 'composition' at media days

DALLAS, TX (WMC) - The Big 12 is holding it's annual meetings with a big discussion about expansion on the table, just don't call it 'expansion.'

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby addressed media members in Dallas. He said the league would discuss 'conference composition' Tuesday this week.
That's no-doubt referring to the issue of expanding the league from just 10 teams.

Currently the Big 12 is the smallest of the Power 5 conference, and Memphis is one of several teams gunning for a spot in an expanded Big 12.

If the league does decide to expand, it could add 2 or even 4 teams. Of course, who will be added and when it'll happen remains up in the air. Memphis, Cincinnati, and Houston have long been considered favorites to make the move.
