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....

Colorado and Nebraska Split at the Right Time

The Big 12 made it sound like everything would be just fine after Nebraska and Colorado left for the Big Ten and Pac 12 respectively.

They should really change the name of the conference to Texas and the other 9.  The Big 12 is proving to be more and more dysfunctional.  Texas A&M says it regrets not leaving for the SEC while the getting was good and now the SEC says it is fine right where it is.

Personally I … 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....

Huskers Final Big 12 Conference Game

The Huskers played their final Big 12 conference game last night against the Sooners in the Big 12 Championship game.  It was a tough loss 23-20 but a classic OU vs NU game.  Way to end a long standing rivalry.

The Huskers played some inspired ball in the first quarter but things stopped clicking after that.  The Blackshirts played a great game against a very tough Sooner offense.  They were put in bad position after bad position time after time … 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....

Why Courtney Osborne Can Not Be Suspended by the Big 12

On the ABC telecast of the Husker’s game this weekend Ed (I make the rules) Cunningham said that Courtney Osborne’s hit on Blaine Gabbert was illegal and he should have been flagged.  He also mentioned Eric Martin being suspended for the same kind of thing.

Blaine fumbled the ball on the play and it was run back for a touchdown by Pierre Allen.  The ref’s blew it dead and said that Blaine’s forward progress was stopped and therefore there was … Read More....

Big 12 Officials Are Blind

Week after week the on field and replay officials continually miss calls.

They missed Kyler Reed making a catch against Texas to convert a third down when he clearly on replay got a foot down in bounds.  They missed a fumble by Blaine Gabbert that was returned for a touchdown by Pierre Allen in Saturday’s game.  They called his forward progress stopped on a sack.  If that is the case then the helmet to helmet hit by Courtney Osborne should … 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....

It is Gameday! Bevo BBQ

It is the game that Husker fans have been waiting for since the end of last season.  Texas at Nebraska!

This is the game that for a lot of fans will make or break the season.  Not that a loss today would be the end of the season for the Huskers but some fans, especially right after the game, will feel it is.

Well the good news is that on paper Nebraska should win.  Nebraska’s D is putting up better … 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.
