Fox Sports president thinks Big 12 expansion isn’t a good idea


The Big 12 is holding a Board of Directors meeting on Monday, with Big 12 expansion a topic of conversation.

But while a press conference is scheduled for later today that could provide some insight on whether the conference will add a team or two, one influential man is on record saying he doesn’t think expansion is a good idea.

Fox Sports president Eric Shanks shared his opinion with the Sports Business Journal.

In recent weeks, it appears that those in favor of expansion are beginning to be outnumbered. There was previously a time where expansion seemed like a foregone conclusion with BYU, Houston and Cincinnati as the front-runners to join the conference, but now we will have to wait and see what the Big 12 has up their sleeves after today’s meeting.

What do you think, should the Big 12 expand? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
