The schools that did not want to be apart of the schools they've been associated with for over 100 years have left. As a fan I'm interested in competing with schools that want to be apart of what my school represents.
Did I think that this would mean having to compete with better football programs? Not really. But it is what it is. You're right, a new schedule is in place and it is time for all to move on.
And yes, I understand that Missouri will be paying something. It's a rule in the by laws of the conference.
And no, this does not mean that the Big 12 conference has won some legal battle once a check is written (or payments are withheld). However it works out.
I love the way you just ignore the fact that there WOULD BE NO BIG XII had the Pac-12 accepted Texas, OU, Okie Light and Tech. It would be over. Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Baylor have absolutely nothing to do with that 100 years shit you keep bleating about. The only modern era members dating back to 1907 are KU, MU and Nebraska, which is already gone. You do realize that, right? Seriously, this century of solidarity shit you're running pushes the boundaries of dumbass, even for you.
