blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Big 12 (Less 2) Staying Together -- It's Official

Big 12 (Less 2) Staying Together -- It's Official

On behalf of Baylor University, I'd like to apologize for every time I've dogged The Evil Empire one of the finest universities in the history of ever. Texas is staying, A&M is staying, OU is staying, and every other team breathes a sigh of relief.
They plan to go forward with 10 teams (Colorado and Nebraska have already bailed), get rid of the North and South divisions, have every team play each other, and get rid of the conference championship game. And Texas gets permission to form its own Texas Television Network as well as a bigger cut of the conference financial pie.
"Colonial, take us back to DEFCON 5." (Cheers. High fives. Hugs. Knowing nods of approval.)

So...are we going forward as the Diez Grande Conferencia?

Having had some years of experience with Baylor coeds, I would suggest "some" is the key word in your comment.

What the hell is a "colonial"? Is that sort of like when Hawkeye and BJ created the Corporal Captain rank for Radar on MASH?

You never know, 9:11 -
I'm a woman & I LOVE all this college football stuff!
:>)

I'm glad UT stayed; I'm glad the Big 12 - 2 is still intact.

I got a kick out of Barry striking through Evil Empire.

Hook 'em.

Yes......a little love is now deserved for the evil empire. This has been huge news and crazy times.

Now we can go back to hearing the TCU's of the world cry about not being in the original Big 12 when they were the door mat of the SWC for years when the Big 12 first started.

Fear of playing superior teams in another conference was the driving force behind that decision.

I guess Baylor is now back to working hard for a bowl bid instead of an automatic bowl bid like TCU gets every year with their schedule.

Let's go get TCU & Arkansas! Southwest conference here we come!

10:27 - You gotta be kidding? Fear of playing superior teams in another conference was the driving force??? Do you KNOW the teams in the PAC 10?

USC is the only team that might rate consistently & they are going to be hurt by the sanctions for the next 3 years.

This was all about money, nothing more or less, just like every other business.

No, 11:16, I do know the teams in the pac 10; however, you do not know a joke when it hits you in the head.

8:56 - SO TRUE.

After such surprising class shown by the orangebloods yesterday, we may now take the words "saw varsity's horns off" out of our war hymn forever.

7:21 - you're right, I didn't recognize your 10:27 post as a joke at all.

Can you school me a little & tell me how I was supposed to know, considering I don't know you at all?
Where is the "joking" tone that hit me in the head that I was oblivious to?

That's a serious question, not a joke; I want to learn here.

As a Texas Tech fan; Tech, A&M, OU, & OSU might as well give up and take all orders from UT. It was suspected that UT ran the conference before, now there is no doubt.

A&M certainly should give up ever claiming to be on par with UT. They had a PRIME chance to tell UT to shove it, but instead they got scared and crawled back to UT, taking less money than UT will get by at least $5million/year, same for OU, and worse for Tech and OSU.

A&M et al... NO STONES!

I would hope that Tech is searching all possibilities as at this point, they have not YET signed on to the Big12-2 deal.

Well 8:51, unless you can verify the validity of a statement or comment received on the internet then you should just assume it is a BS joke type comment or you will continue to get your shorts in a wad over internet blog posts. Pretty simple and pretty logical but if that's too hard for you then you can always come to the north pole and I'll teach you how to be an easy going adult type person.
