    Why must everyone think the Big XII is saved due to the new TV deal?

    For one thing, each team that wants to leave the Big XII is waiting for the right moment to make the move. Talk down here in Texas is A&M is still trying to move to the SEC. Also since Missouri got rejected by the Big 11+1 they will look for an SEC invite. I have hope ISU will join A&M and Mizzou, but not unlikely. So please the TV deal may smooth out the feathers for now, but not long-term.

    Whatever. Everybody is getting what they wanted out of the deal.

    The news this week has finally convinced me that the conference has staying power.

    You're welcome to think whatever you want. Nothing wrong with that. The evidence, though, is piling up that the conference will last.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    You do realize that the SEC had discussed Missouri coming.

    You just love to stir the pot Tiffany, don't you? What is this 3 or 4 threads you have created about the Big 12 and it falling apart?

    That wasn't very hard to determine.

    Tiffany and Millerforrest would be a good match. She hates the Big XII no matter what, while he has it out for Mike McCarthy. It's perfect!

    Re: Why must everyone think the Big XII is saved due to the new TV deal?

    Texas can leave when every they want. There is nothing stopping them from leaving the conference. Therefore, the time for Texas to leave is always. Probably the same with Oklahoma. But, Texas thought it was in it's own best interest to stay and be apart of the conference. Texas is the leader, everyone will react to what Texas does, and Texas wants to stay in and be apart of the conference.

    You say Texas AM is still trying to get an SEC invite, but I'm sure their fans are trying to do that. But the people who matter at Texas AM, the AD, President and Texas legislature are probably doing their part in being a member in the Big 12. Texas and Texas AM is similar to what ISU and Iowa fans go through, just on a much bigger scale, and look how that has turned out for ISU, we are pretty much still in the shadow of Iowa and Texas AM will always be in the shadow if Texas unless they do something about it, not matter what conference they are in.

    Now to the TV deal, this will pretty much save the Big 12 because it will prevent teams from being at a financial disadvantage to the other conferences. These negotiations are always in cycles, The big 10 was first, then the SEC, then the ACC now it's the big 12's turn to get it's pay day to a level similar to the Big 10 and the SEC. So in 10 or so years from now when the Big 10's contract is up again, we will go through this unsettle again because one conference is ahead of the others financially.
