Just let it go, man. You, as you repeatedly say, are in the conference you want to be in. Be in that conference, you really don't have to speculate on ours any longer. Be free of it.

Texas is exactly where they want to be. Texas already has gobs of money, there is a point of diminishing returns. Texas wants to be in a region where it can play OU and a lot of Texas schools. That is what Texas wants. I know you don't believe it, but Texas is actually very happy where they are, I know, I converse with quite a few of their alumni.

OU was a bit discontent, but now they are very happy. I doubt you actually frequent Big 12 boards, but the general mood there is actually quite positive. I know that's difficult for you and the Aggies to believe, but once you two announced your final intentions and we invited our new members, there's actually quite the feeling of camaraderie I hadn't experienced since we invited the four SWC schools to join.

So, if you really have to keep repeating the same old diatribe, without a shred of anything to back it up, in the faint glimmering hope the B12 (which you were once a founding member of) is going to go "poof" and justify every irrational fear you directed towards big bad Texas as well as the mountain of various manners to say "I told you so" to your envy to the west, then I guess that is the Hell you have decided to call home.

And let's not act like it was the first time they pretty much toyed with a conference. Depending on who you talk to, the death of the Soutwestern Conference was just as much Texas' doing as anyone else. I won't pretend to act like I was interested or even know the mechanics of how that old conference fell apart, but a few fingers pointed at them.

Honestly...I hope everyone else in the conference does well...improves and has a stable few years.

The venom being spewed by both MU and A&M fans now that they are gone is making the progress the Big 12 is showing now a bit unsurprising.

Almost to the point where one wishes they would have left sooner.

All that proved is that fans don't want to see a team that had clearly went into the tank. I'm sure if the roles were reversed, MU would have had the exact same numbers they did at that game.

1. ND is my primary team, so I know full well all about their options. They can go to pretty much any conference that they want (although the Pac-12 might be an issue). They choose to stay independent and are powerful enough that they were included in the playoff talks with conference commissioners.

2. UT unlike the aforementioned schools that I highlighted has flirted not once, but twice with the Pac-12. IN THE LAST TWO YEARS mind you. Kinda odd for a school that is supposedly "exactly where they want to be".

I'll be your huckleberry here.....you lessen your case by using the examples of Florida, Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State, USC or to even that extent ND. All but ND are in very stable conferences and haven't been hinting about looking into another conference. UT and OU were very public about that....so your comparison has no foundation.

Why would Texas want to leave a conference they control? Well, only if it could make more money like they could have with a move to the Pac-10. When they had to drop the LHN to become a member, and balked, the Pac-10 said "no thanks". I'll give UT their due...when that fell thru they went to Plan B and rebuilt the Big 12.....

You got WVU because they were spurned by another conference. I'm sure they will display that "camraderie" you want because truthfully they were left with few options. You did get a good replacement in TCU, but beyond Football they won't really contribute that much.

As I said before...I am glad you guys will survive. It will bring about continued stablility in College Football for the time being. Until the inevitable scramble for the chairs that will be set up for the 4 SuperConferences....

The SEC is a conference that has been around for decades, with relationships forged with much more than TV contract money. The B12 was put together with TV contracts in mind. Used to be that prenuptial agreements weren't necessary either until women started exploring their rights.

Have you ever thought that no GoR means that they feel the core group of schools is fully invested in one another, and any late comers just aren't much skin off their back whether they come or go? That would be you, the "little skin off their back".

The B!G also signs over their GoR, do they do it to ensure no one leaves as well? No, they do it for many of the same reasons we do it, in the face of conference uncertainty, networks are looking for more assurances that things won't go haywire once it is in effect. The GoR is more for their security than ours. That's not to say its not that as well, but you argument is simplistic.

That's all well and good. But your repeated theme was "How much did KU get"? From the group that exists only to donate to Missouri.

I mean, come on. That's kinda funny.

Really? Those schools have flirted? I must have missed all that drama!

There's always a period of unrest when unique situations arrive. There are many reasons the B12 was ripe for plucking, the two most obvious was that they had quality schools/teams and they are in the middle of the country. So, they were close to every other suitor.

But, as far as I can tell, UT and OU didn't go, unlike some other schools I could mention. The unrest was created by other schools, and they looked out for their own interest. Its a bit revisionist to suggest otherwise.

And the Big 12 of which 3/4ths of the members had been in a conference for 60+ years doesn't fit your definition of "around for decades with relationships forged with much more than TV money"? Wasn't KU/MU one of the biggest and oldest rivalries in college sports? How about OU/NU? Damn, you are Wickedson easy.

Reread my post. I guess I should have used simpler English. I will make note of that next time I respond to you. UT did not go because of the LHN, which no one wanted and they refused to drop.

Holding the rest of us responsible for what Saul does is like blaming regular KU fans for your stupidity.

I also have zero posts in the KU football thread. And I wouldn't go to Kansas to take a shit, much less live there.
