What now for the not so Big 12

Now that A&M is leaving the Big 12 where does that leave everybody else?  I think it leave Oklahoma going to the PAC-12 or they could be sandbagging for the SEC.

What puzzles me is that people are picking Texas to go to the PAC-12??  I don’t think the PAC-12 will have them with the UT Network.  I don’t think anybody will have them with that.  I expect UT to go independant and the rest of the league scrambling to … Read More....

Oklahoma and A&M to SEC in the next 2 years

Sounds like OU and A&M aren’t so happy to be in the Big 12 and let Texas do whatever it likes.  I hear that OU and A&M told Texas that it has an unfair recruiting advantage with the UT network and that they are looking at moving to the SEC in the next couple years.

I have to say this is so funny.  It will leave UT on the outside looking in.  They will either be in a nothing conference … Read More....

Dan Beebe to Scared to Hand Huskers Big 12 North Trophy

On Friday the Huskers won the Big 12 north, oddly there was no one there from the Big 12 to hand them the trophy, actually the trophy wasn’t there either.

Dan Beebe said he has received threats via email and phone and because of that he didn’t feel safe going to Lincoln or sending anybody from the Big 12 office to hand the trophy to the Huskers after the game.  He said that he didn’t feel there was enough security.… Read More....

The Fall of the Big 12 — Bevo about to Hook’em

Today ESPN announced that it will pay the University of Texas 12 million dollars a year to carry the UT Channel.  I am wondering if the other schools in the Big 12 are starting to feel the knife in their back.

With the TV network and 12 million a year from ESPN what does Bevo need the other schools in the Big 12 for?  They can now go independent working on a lighter schedule and not share any of their … Read More....

Bevo Gives Dan Beebe an Extension

I know that ESPN and all the sports news outlets reported Dan Beebe got an extension from the Big 12 earlier today.  I think it is funny that he is credited with keeping the Big 12 together.

Really??  Exactly what did he do?  Texas never really wanted to go to the PAC-10 it was just a ploy to get the other schools that remained to let Bevo have it’s own TV station.  Which oddly enough today ESPN announced it would … Read More....

Big East Expansion and What is Left of the Big 12

The Big East has said it is interested in adding two new teams for football.  I can’t help but think that Kansas, Missouri and Kansas State have to be thinking about it.  If any one of those schools could get in for football and basketball they would be all set.

These schools have to face the facts much as Colorado did, none of the other Big 12 schools care about them.  Texas definitely isn’t going to do them any favors … Read More....

NU the Big 12 Scape Goat for Missouri

Seems there is a lot of hate in the Big 12 for Nebraska this year.  Everybody is upset because the Huskers are leaving for the Big Ten.  All the fans that are upset at the Huskers should really be upset with Missouri.  Why?  Well Missouri is the school that started all this.

It was Missouri; actually the Governor of Missouri that came out before the Big 12 meetings and said that the University of Missouri was leaving for the Big … Read More....

New Big 12 schedules

Just wanted to post this quickly.  If you are Oklahoma or Texas you have to love the new Big 12 schedules.  Your toughest game is early in the year so if you lose it, it shouldn’t hurt that much.  The rest of the schools, ouch!

Here is the link.

The OU Swagger has Been Replaced

I personally lost a lot of the respect that I had developed over the years for the Oklahoma Sooners.  I grew up hating them but at some point it turned to respect for the rivalry that I came to better understand.

I just can’t believe that the Sooners bent over and took it like that from the Longhorns.  They could have gone to the SEC and played a better class of football but Texas threatened to never play them again.  … Read More....
