    Soooo... in the end we are better off than we were a month ago?

    This is surreal.

    Who'd have thought we'd go from being banished to the non AQ wilderness three weeks ago to being way better off now than before. Provided everything holds together that is...

    aTm gone... BYU in... back to 10 teams... Fox TV contract stays... OU and Longhorns are basically stuck and willing to enact equal TV money sharing for tier 1 and 2 rights.... Beebe gone...

    Did I miss anything?

    There are a handful of people that thought the status quo would be maintained or something better would come of it. Myself being one of them. It simply made no sense for the Big XII to implode.

    But the most obvious person that was right all along is Rebecacy. OU was working in our best interests just as he said they were.

    It made sense when he said it, everyone was just too eager to assume the worst. We are after all, ISU fans so I guess that is a learned response.

    While it looks good I will not be rested until everyone signs a high penalty clause for leaving the conference.

    I would say yes. A month ago I was certain that this conference was gone. Now things are looking slightly better.
