08:24 AM ET 06.28 | It has been assumed for some time that the Big 12 has looked into adding Notre Dame to the conference. Now there's proof. In a January memo to the Big 12 expansion committee, interim commissioner Chuck Neinas said Notre Dame is the only school the Big 12 could add that would "enhance the Big 12 value for television." The memo, obtained by The Oklahoman through an Open Records request, was sent to the committee as an agenda for a late January teleconference. The expansion committee is made up of Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis, Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds and Kansas State president Kirk Shulz.
