    This site is not representative of the majority of "fans" or donors, sorry. Regardless of the issue.

    I agree - I don't believe it either.

    Re: ISU to B1G was discussed in 2011

    That's fine, but Texas is still here because the Pac 10 turned them and their LHN down. It's not because Texas had second thoughts about travel...

    I was at the Rotary luncheon that Rhoads spoke to on Monday - the assembled members were polite, respectful, and somewhat enthusiastic during his appearance. I'm confused about his comments about...
  5. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    They've been doing that for decades...or do the welfare teams like ISU not cash their share of OU's bowl checks?
  6. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    Here's a thought: before that happens (good chance of it), let's get rid of the Longhorn Network, get a real conference network, and then convince Nebraska to come back and poach Arkansas from the...
  7. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    Agree. There is no way the Big 12 is going to fight to keep a school in the conference who doesn't want to be here. Too costly. They didn't fight Neb, A&M, Mizzou or Colo to get all of the Big 12's...
  8. Re: ***Official B12 Expansion/Implosion Thread 3.0???***

    Quit assuming that the GOR is some sort of "binding" contract that keeps teams from leaving. It's simply not.

    "The GOR uses the existing TV rights of each member as a hostage to prevent any...

    I thought I heard that he and Fred are friends. Plus, I'd bet that his "character" is 180 degrees from that of Tiger Woods.

    Re: The Next Step

    Take note of what Pollard said he "values" from a coach at the hiring presser for Steve Prohm: respect for officials, man of faith, etc. Jamie Pollard is not going to hire Bo Pelini.

    Well there we have it. To get to the "real" motives behind Boren's comments about his unhappiness with the Big 12, just visit the "OU message boards." That's great...

    Wait - you don't think A&M has been a huge loss for the Big 12? You're kidding, right? Houston is basically an SEC town now.
    We should have listened to Boren when he said Louisville would be a...

    Re: COLUMN: Thank you, Oklahoma president

    Seems to me he eventually wants a conference with a collective unity - same reason Neb, Colo, Mizzou and A&M left. It's a matter of time before OU heads to the SEC.

    Another article on the ineffectiveness of the Big 12's GOR. Not to mention it lacks termination or damage clauses.

    The point is the same - the ACC wanted over $52 mil from Maryland and settled for $31 mil.
    How about the Big 12 seeking $90 mil from Nebraska, A&M, and Mizzou for leaving? It was in the...

    Re: Expansion

    Yeah...just like the ACC's GOR kept Maryland in the conference? The ACC finally gave up and Maryland paid around $31 mil to leave for the Big 10. Big whoop.

    Good read. So much for this "iron clad" GOR that so many hang their hats on.
    I think we need to listen to OU...and get a conference TV network ASAP.
