Big 12 - Football only conference?

Shout out to the Kansas Jayhawks for their victory last night in a thrilling overtime instant classic. If Memphis hits their freethrows, then the game is over in the last minute. But it's sort of like special teams in football- it is a very important and crucial part of the game of basketball- hitting the 15 foot freebie. So to all the pundits out there who keep shouting about the ACC, SEC, Big Ten, Pac 10, and Big East.... The Big 12 is now officially in the conversation, with Kansas winning the national championship and the first Big 12 member hoisting the trophy.
