What the future holds for the Big XII IDK - it will last as long as TX and OU want it to but the minute they don't.......I'm just glad I don't have to worry about it any longer.
Now the Big Ten, there's a league that puts me into a coma. It freaking sucks. No amount of hoops success can make up for the hot pile of garbage it puts on the football field every fall or for their arrogant, hypocritical, egg-head, FOS fan base.
SEC basketball sucks hind teet this year but in many others it has been somewhat under-appreciated.
I think that, in the next 5-10 years, the SEC will improve to an elite basketball conference. If Duke and North Carolina join the SEC, the conference will wind up dominating basketball the way it dominates football.
