Kansas Governor Sam Brownback says he's optimistic the Big 12 will stay together and maybe even add members.

Brownback says it makes sense for conference to continue because the level of competition in basketball and football is as good as anywhere in the country. And he says it makes geographic sense, too.

The Kansas Board of Regents is meeting in closed session Tuesday afternoon to discuss the conference and the impacts any changes will have on Kansas and Kansas State. There has been talk the Big 12 might break up if Texas and Oklahoma leave.

But the Pac-12 voted last night to stay at a dozen members.

Brownback says the regents and the state's two Big 12 schools have handled the situation as best they could, given the uncertainty of circumstances
