  • Tramel: The Big 12 should look west for two new additions

    By BERRY TRAMEL | Updated: Fri, Aug 7, 2015

    The Big 12 has to add two schools that bring value to the Big 12 brand. And in the 21st century, most certainly in the Big 12’s case, that means football brand.

    By Berry Tramel | Published: Mon, Jul 20, 2015

    Like the school marm in a mining town, the Big 12 is quite popular these days. At least among a certain segment of college athletics. Not among fellow power conference schools.

  • Tramel: Please explain why a 10-team Big 12 won't work?

    berry tramel | Updated: Mon, Jul 6, 2015

    Why can’t the Big 12 thrive with 10 schools? What would two schools add, especially two imperfect-fit schools, which are the only kind available at the moment? Again, dead-serious question. What would 12 provide that 10 doesn’t?

    College football’s roving capital settled in the Magnolia State last October. Mississippi State was ranked No. 1 the week of Oct. 21; Ole Miss was ranked No. 3. Both were unbeaten and untied, and dreams of an Egg Bowl showdown for national supremacy spread from Biloxi to Tupelo. It was a...
