The Big 12 chose not to expand, and some Twitter users are fuming about the decision.
On Monday, the conference’s university presidents concluded a three-month expansion exploration process that involved 20 potential candidates for inclusion, with 11 of those institutions interviewed for the chance to join. In the end, Big 12 members decided the league is best off with 10 schools for the time being.
Of course, the internet had plenty to say about the development. To some, the Big 12’s decision not to expand was further proof that the league is inferior to the SEC.
Check out some of the reaction below:
I hate the Big 12 so much…. Please OU go to the SEC

I want to congratulate UT and OU on their pending move to the SEC. The Big 12 is a dead conference walking.

I thought the Big 12 wanted to compete with the SEC? Oh well…A&M is looking like a genius right now, that doesn't happen often folks.

BYUtv bringing the ?: If the SEC is Bill Gates, the Big 12 is the Kardashians.

Big 12 is weak & clearly doesn't want to be on the same tier as the SEC. I mean ya why would you add better teams to be a better conference?

David Boren may say no one wants to leave, but if the Big 12 decided it was time to blow up, that dude would be calling the SEC so damn fast
