Also, I'm not so naive as to think this same scenario might not befall us. If FSU and Clemson come on board, we could very well be playing them, ISU, KSU and WVU. That would hurt. It might be mitigated a bit more in that most years we will have at least one Texas school on the schedule, in some years one home and one away, because a 12 team is more conducive to rotation.
You'll see it's all a show, keep 'em laughing as you go, just remember, the last laugh is on you, and always look on the bright side of life!
