The good news for the Big 12 Conference is that there is no shortage of suitors.Commissioner Bob Bowlsby has been asked to start evaluating expansion candidates and the league office should already have a stack of files from schools eager for a spot in the Power Five league. The announcement on Tuesday did not say the 10-member Big 12 is committed to expansion, but it is obvious where this is headed.Bowlsby and Oklahoma President David Boren, the chairman of the conferences board of directors, noted plenty of schools have reached out to the Big 12, especially within the last year. Documents obtained by The Associated Press through open records requests show schools such as Connecticut, Cincinnati, UCF, Memphis, Colorado State and Houston have been touting themselves to Big 12 officials for months:- A letter sent from Central Floridas President John Hitt to Texas President Gregory Fenves highlights a report that projects Orlandos population growth over the next 10 years to be six times that of Cincinnatis and 500 times that of Hartford, Connecticut.- A UConn student sent a report prepared by the schools alumni to West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons that points out the Storrs-based school provides access to TV markets (including New York and Boston) with potential to reach 11.7 million homes while the combined markets reached by Cincinnati, UCF, South Florida and Houston is 12.3 million homes.- Memphis President M. David Rudd touted the schools effort to improve its status as a research institution and the backing of FedEx CEO and Memphis alum Fred Smith in a letter to Texas Tech interim president John Opperman. West Virginia President Gordon Gee, a member of the Big 12s composition committee, received the same information from Memphis and responded with a thank you letter.Very, very impressive, Gee wrote back to Rudd.- Colorado State President Tony Frank mentioned getting the Big 12 back into the Denver market and that the football stadium expansion was on time and on budget in a separate email to Gee.Indeed, Colorado State is making a statement and moving swiftly into the forefront of universities, not only regionally but nationally, Gee responded in a letter to Frank dated July 21, 2015.- Houston President Renu Khators email to Gee had the subject line TV ratings and had a color-coded chart attached showing the 20 highest-rated regular season games last season in Houston area. The Cougars had as many in the top 10 as the entire Big 12. The rest were Southeastern Conference games.Its easy to understand schools have not been shy about courting the Big 12. The league recently distributed $30 million payouts to its members for the most recently concluded school year. Most of that money comes from a 13-year television deal with ESPN and Fox that runs through 2024-25 and is worth $2.6 billion or more than $20 million per school per year.For perspective, the American Athletic Conference, home to Cincinnati, UConn, Memphis among others, is in the middle of a seven-year deal with ESPN and CBS that is worth $126 million dollars or about $2 million per year per school.Big 12 membership will bring a windfall, but the full value of membership will take time to reap. The Big 12s TV deals call for its partners to increase payments pro rata for every new school added. Four new schools would equal $80 million to $100 million in new money per year for the conference. Plus, the return of the Big 12 title game in 2017 will bring in another $27 million or so per year, Bowlsby has said.There likely will be a two-stage process of some sort that will involve some preliminary work, and then a secondary process as well that gets into a little more of a -- perhaps even a fact-finding but also perhaps even a negotiation stage, Bowlsby said.The Big 12 wont give full shares to new members upon arrival. Its common practice for incoming schools to get partial revenue shares for a few years. TCU and West Virginia just finished their fourth seasons in the Big 12 and for the first time received full shares. That means for several years, the current 10 members get to share the new money. And which schools are willing to accept less money for the longest period of time could help determine whether an institution gets an invite from the Big 12.Frank, in an email to Gee dated Jan. 28, 2015, acknowledged Colorado States willingness to be phased in and even provided a suggestion:For example, $10M/year for 2 years, then $12.5M for 2 years, then $15M for 2 years, etc...until parity was reached, he wrote.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Argentinas Football Association hired a company that charters flights to transport superstar Lionel Messi and the rest of the national team for a World Cup qualifying game without knowing the name of the airline or the model of the plane, an official said Friday.The plane was the same British Aerospace 146 Avro RJ85 jet operated by Bolivia-based charter company LaMia that later crashed in Colombia, killing 71 people, including most of a Brazilian soccer team.Argentine Football Association spokesman Miguel Hirsch said Friday the AFA was forced to look for options for a roundtrip Buenos Aires-Belo Horizonte flight after the plane they often use from the Andes airline was sent for technical revisions.The Associated Press had access to offer sheets that six companies presented. None mentioned the name of the airline. But the one that the AFAs national team department chose for $99,000 was the cheapest one and the only one that did not provide the model of the plane. The second least expensive offer was about $3,000 less.I suppose that since the AFA is going through financial troubles, it was a question of costs, Hirsch said in an interview with The AP.I suppose that these people went about it in the same way that you go about contacting a travel agency or looking in the internet and buying a ticket for Buenos Aires to New York, he said. You dont check if Delta, American or Continental flight is a Boeing 777, you say -- its a company, I know it, and its the bestt price.ddddddddddddBolivias Civil Aviation Authority on Thursday indefinitely suspended all flights operated by LaMia airlines amid reports its charter aircraft ran out of fuel moments before slamming into the Andes mountains on Monday.Many of the victims were players and coaches from Chapecoense, a small-town Brazilian soccer team that was headed to the finals of one of South Americas most prestigious tournaments after a fairy-tale season that had captivated their soccer-crazed nation.Argentina used the same aircraft before and after their 3-0 defeat to Brazil on Nov. 10 in Belo Horizonte for the qualifiers to Russia 2018.Nothing happened, fortunately. But, obviously, within the AFA body, there has been a strong awareness of the risk that was taken, Hirsch said. This was a human error. It has been proven that the pilot was carrying less gas than he should. Possibly, thats one of the reasons why the LaMia company charged less for its charters.Led by Julio Grondona since the 1970s, the federation has been in an economic and governance crisis since the late FIFA senior vice president died in 2014.Hirsch said that in recent months and under its new leadership, the AFA has been in talks with Aerolineas Argentinas to strike a deal so that the countrys flagship carrier can fly the national team.--Luis Andres Henao on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LuisAndresHenao Camo China NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL T-shirts Disocunt Football Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Jerseys From China Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
