  1. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    I just now got this. Well done.
  2. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    I think KU makes a lot of sense to the B1G. KU hoops would be the third biggest national brand in the league (behind UM & tOSU football) right? They pass the academic sniff test (albeit on the low...
  3. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    I agree and in fact I'd be surprised if the Big 12 lasts beyond the GoR. But people (like hawk fans) think that the end will be a cliff that ISU (or KSU or BU) falls off of. It's not going to...
  4. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    You are aware that this is what lawyers do for a living, right?

    And in your fantastical OU/KU scenario what, exactly are oSu and KSU doing? Because they would become aware of the situation. I...
  5. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    Yes, really. Relegation would have a ruinous effect on the two ADs left out and they would sue. You don't have to be a lawyer to connect those dots. OU and KU don't give a whit about ISU but they...
  6. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    Because that's collusion? ISU could sue other conferences for tortuous interference?

    I know the prospect of relegation for ISU gives you and other iowa fans a hard-on but it's simply not going...
  7. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    That's true but it's a pretty big gamble legally/financially, especially since other members would be forced to come at them with both barrels. Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to come up with a...
  8. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    These two ifs mean that KU and OU would challenge the Grant of Rights agreement they've both signed.

    So you think they would do this?
  9. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    True, but the Big 12 is the conference that's suffered the most serious erosion and it's plausible to think that it's members would look to find stability at the end of the current TV deal (or...
  10. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    By what course of events does the Big 12 lose a "handful" of teams? Dissolution of the conference requires minimum eight votes. What eight teams are going to vote to disband w/o a plan B that isn't...
  11. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    Why? Why would we be left out of a re-formed Big 12 / ACC or Pac?
  12. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    There is no difference. Relegation from the P5(P4) would extinguish any desire our prospective recruits would have to come here. We would no longer exist for Iowa kids.
  13. Re: Will this controversy of the future of the B12 ever stop?

    Shouldn't this thread be merged?

    Also,

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the "instability" is only perpetuated by internet posters, right? I don't really see how Boren's expansion comments can be...
  14. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    They're so full of ****.

    Look at Barry Alvarez; the man has never been associated with football other than B1G football, NU, UI, Wisc...OF COURSE anyone who destroys his Badgers are going to get...
  15. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    Not sure how you can say might when the week before the CCGs were played the Big 12 was in and the day after the CGGs were played they were out...

    Regardless, if the Big 12 gets left out again...
  16. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    That we're at a disadvantage not having a CCG. If no CCGs existed, TCU/BU most likely get into the playoffs. Isn't it true that tOSU jumped them both after their CCG?
  17. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    [QUOTE=Gonzo;4722377]You know more about Osborne than me. QUOTE]

    Trust me, Osborne would vote ten times out of ten against any team in Texas's conference.
  18. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    At what point in time? Before or after the CCGs were played? If it was after the CCGs were played this just reinforces Boren's comment.
  19. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    Agreed, it's absurd that a committee selects four teams from the P5 (plus G5).
  20. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    This is exactly what Boren is talking about; more teams = more sway. It's why the Big 12 needs a CCG (with or without 12 members). As long as bigger leagues are considered more legitimate we'll be...
