    Which team to leave Big 12 if you could've picked?

    If you could have picked which team or teams to leave the Big 12 who would they be? One of mine would have been Kansas State instead of Nebraska (glad to see Colorado go). Always hated their football team, and have'nt cared for their basketball team lately.

    Basically like it happened. NU are arrogant $%#@ along with CU, Texas is full of them as well, but they seem to be a team that kept the band together.

    Being, by most accounts, the bottom team in the old Big 12 North, it seems tacky to pick on the team that has usually held that spot in the South, but I'd pick Baylor. They got themselves into the Big 12 through old fashioned Texas politics, and they used their Texas political supporters to almost get the Big 12 broken up.

    It's hard to turn back the clock on my increased dislike of Nebraska and CU, so I'll go with those two.

    I would add Iowa in to the Big 12 so they would actually play some real competition.

    Hah! Iowa State! Being in the Big Ten would solve some problems with the Iowa rivalry, offer better exposure--and who wouldn't like a chance to beat them twice a year in basketball?

    Honestly I liked the old big 12 but I'm happy with how it shook out. I'm pumped to play the round robin.

    Baylor for sure, and either Tech or NU. I would have kept CU.

    Funny thing is, if this thread appears on any other Big 12 school's fan site it's ISU that's getting the boot...
