    Re: ***OFFICIAL BIG 12 EXPANSION THREAD 2.0***

    Nebraska was the leader in pushing for an unequal deal until they realized Texas would always be bigger, then they did a total 180 and were happy getting the same cut as Northwestern. Left the...

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    The only relief I see is other leagues are moving to 9 as well. At least that way fans of other conferences will know what B12 and P12 schools have been talking about with schedules ranked tougher...

    Re: Cheick Diallo

    You're right about people not being aware of Hilton outside B12 hoops fans, but the Michigan game early this year had a pretty big impact reversing that, not just the game with Vitale on ESPN but the...

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    On the Iowa side of things I think it's a good 40% of their actual football fans, here maybe 20%. Then there's the type of Iowan for whom "football" happens two days a year, ISU/Iowa and the...

    I think you actually want a lot of communist and/or nazi ties if you're vying to host a world cup or olympics.

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    If we get a decade plus of Hoiball we have a key basketball rival. In football you're right that it's the only one I ever really see.

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    I don't think our '00 9-3 team was any better than our '01 7-5 team that would have been 8-4 with the Alabama bowl fg 50/50 call going the other way. But most people just know the record. People talk...

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    Yeah, if we can't beat Toledo and NDSU at home this year it's a "we" thing and not on some AD a decade ago.

    But we do have a lunatic fringe crowd here who thinks we need to schedule 9 B12 games,...

    From what I can tell, over the past century, when you're picking a host for the Olympics and/or World Cup you want the following things:

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    At home I agree with you, if it's 2 for 1 I could see losing on road trips like SDSU, SJSU, NIU and still being a very good team. With the B12 9 games it's possible to be 5-7 and 6-6 and still be a...

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    Our "luck" in scheduling FCS and MAC/WAC/MWC teams could also be simply not doing deep enough thinking. If the goal is truly to schedule non-major conference teams that are a W, you'd want to pick...

    Well KSU already did win more Big 12 regular season games than KU just a couple years ago, so you know what that feels like.

    Re: Will Blalock on Fred

    It's not surprising and I'm not knocking it, but it's obvious that any former player would want to associate themselves with Hoiball whether they played for or with Fred or not. Clark has to look at...

    The truth is the media and fans of other teams are too lazy to ever consider SOS, even AP and coaches poll don't consider it which is why I'm thankful the BCS formula at least used 1/3 computer data....

    Re: Blame Bruce for the current football scheduling

    I looked up our last 4 SOS rankings according to Sagarin (I know there are different formulas out there) since things got "rough" with the 9 game schedule.

    23rd, 11th, 2nd, 24th, average of 15th

    Re: BLOG: I don't blame Baylor for a soft non-con

    Texas or OU could be a non conference game. Baylor is playing an above average schedule among The 65 'big 5' programs. For example they could easily face twice the # of ranked teams as Iowa and some...
