Hargis, who chairs the league's board of directors, spoke
Thursday during the Big 12's annual meetings at the
InterContinental Hotel in Kansas City.
He said that Big 12 administrators are all "very satisfied"
with 10 teams, but nobody in the conference is willing to shut the
door provided the right opportunity arises.
That could mean a school such as Florida State, which has
expressed interest in the conference, or even Notre Dame, a
traditional independent in football that might need to join a
conference depending on how a college football playoff shakes out.
