    Kerkhoff says Texas/ESPN deal good for ISU

    Here's a new take from the KC Stars Blair Kerkhoff regarding the Texas/ESPN deal. Says that it is a good thing for the "forgotten 5."

    I find the continued use of "forgotten 5" interesting. Now, the speculation is that UT will go independent. Would this not make it "forgotten 9" or are we still going on the assumption that aTm will go to the SEC as will OU.

    The comments I've seen from Jon Miller and SportsTalkDouche intimate the end of the B12 but conveniently don't explain why.

    Wet dreams require no explanation.

    After A&M got their collective rears handed to them by LSU in the Cotton Bowl this year and by Georgia last year in Shreveport, I think they may be rethinking the SEC and happy in the Big 12.

    Of course they are going to say the end of the Big 12 is near. Jon Miller is a big-time hawk so he most likely hates Iowa State. And with Matt, well I think we all know how what he thinks of ISU. Let's get some opinions of people who are unbiased and see what they have to say.

    The counterpoint to this is that they'd love the revenue sharing and eventually they would compete.

    But lets say that UT and aTm did leave. This harms ISU how? I havn't seen a rational or plausible reason yet why ISU should be scared?

    Texas contains more than 50% of the televisions in the Big 12 conference, and Baylor and TT don't carry near the TV-viewing clout that Texas and A&M do. Lose those two schools and the Big 12 is about as televisable as the Big East or Mountain West.

    Last time I checked this is an AQ league so, again I ask, why am I supposed to be worried?

    $$$ comes from TV contracts. The whole reason why people don't want to join the Big East is because the Big East would never be able to land the kind of TV contracts that were being projected for the Big 12. Lose Texas and A&M and the rest of the Big 12 is about as televisable as the Big East. In other words, it hurts ISU's AD's budget - potentially big time.

    I just dont know how the other ADs and Presidents get past the jealousy everytime the schools have meetings. You cant tell me that OU and Texas A&M are not jealous.

    Not worse than getting bounced from an AQ league. No scenario exists in which the B12 does some poaching of their own? I mean, as long as we're letting our imaginations run wild...

    You can make your organization better, or stew in jealousy and fail. You probably don't get to be a university president or AD at a lesser budget school if you can't function without being overcome by jealousy everytime you encounter an institution that has more than you do.
