Road trips are always fun. Especially when you mix a football game into it.

I think some coaches and AD's might be getting overly emotional about the round-robin, not considering all the ramifications of going to 12, and Snyder's senile mind may have picked up on it.

There's no way the Big 12 is divisionless at 12, the NCAA wont allow a championship game, and it would screw the stronger schools (OU, UT, to a lesser extent TT and OSU as well) who have to have permanent rivalry games with each other.

A school like K-State would love this plan, every 4 or 5 years or so, they'd randomly avoid playing both of them. KU made it to the orange bowl partly because they avoided playing both UT and OU, they'd love to see that happen again. (at least with divisions, doing that might only get you a division title and you still have to play a CCG before winning the conference)
THE TINY BIG 12 SCHOOLS NEVER WIN ANYTHING! THEY ARE GETTING TRAMPLED!

The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night? If you didn’t make curfew, raise your hand.” All of us that broke curfew kept our hands down — except B-Rush. He’d raise his hand and tell on himself. Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

If the drive is not worth it, then the flight might be worth it depending on the time you save.

The cost difference really isn't much, you are renting a room either way. The reason to choose the flight is "oh God, I'm not driving that", not "oh cool, Boston!". If you want to go to Boston and you are only 2 hours away, you'll be driving there, not flying. If you aren't excited about Manhattan even with the game and you only live 2 hours away, you aren't driving or flying there.
I don't understand why you can't seem to wrap your mind around this simple concept.

Five college football fans want to go to a road game.

"Hey guys. We play teams "A", "B", "C", and "D" on the road. Team A is a four hour drive and is in a really nice town with tons to do. Team B is in kind of a run of the mill college town and is also a four hour drive. Team C is in a great city, but we would have to fly there. Team D is in a run of the mill town, and we would have to fly there."

You're going to choose A every time because it's an ready road trip, and there will be plenty to do besides the game.

Short of that, you either go with B because it's an easy road trip, and road trips are fun, or you go with C because you're willing to spend more money to see a game somewhere cool because the experience is worth the extra expense.

The only terrible option is D. You have to pay for for a plane ticket and deal with the hassle just to go to a mediocre town.

For Florida State, every trip in their division would be option D except Clemson (which has been in their conference for years).

I only put Lawrence ahead of Columbia because Lawrence gets better concerts and has the excellent Free State Brewpub.

OK, now lets stipulate that there are no 4-hour division drives for FSU, anywhere.

EVERY division game (ignoring Clemson) is either type C or D, and NC isn't as cool as you make it out to be. The downside of Boston is seeing the worst team this side of Duke, which should come close to cancelling it out, I mean, we're not talking about a beach or NYC, its just Boston.

Sure, but Tallahassee to Lawrence is a 2000 mile round trip. You aren't doing that on Friday after class and driving back Sunday morning.

I agree that there are no "A" trips. Boston, DC, Chapel Hill, etc. are all "C" trips. Their entire division in the Big XII would be "D".

In truth the old Big 12 has died. The new conference is Texas, TCU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Florida State, Clemson, West Virginia. Its like an alternate conference in the SEC's footprint. The local schools are geographically out of the way now, and surely not major players in the conference anymore if it's to be measured by football.

It's good that they still had a chair by default when the music stopped but this is going to be a very different world for the KC area schools.

counterpoint: Texas and OU have 2 votes.

Going from 2 votes out of 10, to 2 votes out of 12 dilutes their influence. Not sure why people panicked about them can't see that.

Regarding being "divisionless", the only thing that might work is dynamic divisions, that would be something that the NCAA would allow and which would work without taking the risk that the conference champ is seen as illegitimate.

Practically speaking, we wouldn't really have divisions, and we've got all the flexibility in the world to accommodate people's needs to play here or there once a year, once every 2 years, or whatever.

All you have to do is make sure that 2 pairs of 6 teams play each other each year. The membership of those 2 groups can change at the whim of the Big 12, and we wouldn't really see it as permanent divisions, but as far as the NCAA rules are concerned, we'd inform them that our divisions in 2013, for the purpose of the CCG, are X. In 2014, we'd inform them that our divisions have changed to Y. In 2015, we'd inform the NCAA that our divisions have changed again, to Z, etc.

There will be divisions. Don't over-think this.

Location of the university to downtown tips things in Columbia's favor, but this is not to say that Lawrence isn't pretty cool in its own right.
