Texas just revealed that their athletic department brings in a revenue around $163,000,000. This is $40,000,000 more than the closest SEC school.
I appreciate your attempt to once again take a shot at the Big 12 but the fact remains that these schools are excelling beyond anything they've done in the past athletically and financially.
This is a mutual attempt by both conferences to capitalize on the explosion in popularity of college basketball. Really nothing more.
Meh. KU playing MU is good for business. It's a national rivalry that dates back....how many years? It's good for exposure and man it makes for some fun weeks leading up to it.
And really, whether you or anyone doesn't want that game to happen, it's going to happen. Likely sooner than most expect.
