Though there is no timetable for the first of the formal invitations to go out to as many as six new football members, commissioner John Marinatto wholesale jerseys is expected to meet with the expansion candidates shortly to gauge their interest. No formal action is expected to be taken until after the league's annual basketball media day in New York on Wednesday.

But the point could be moot, since The New York Times reported that Missouri's departure for the SEC is "imminent." That would make Louisville or West Virginia, or both, expansion targets of the Big 12 as it looks to nfl jerseys cheap recover from the loss of Missouri and Texas A&M.
If the Big East loses Louisville or West Virginia after seeing Syracuse and Pittsburgh defect and TCU opt for the Big 12 instead, it could spell the demise of the league.
