    David,
    I was unable to reach you by phone last Friday and I’m not in the office but a few minutes today.
    My message is that I hope OU is going to stick with the “Big XII.” The central part of the country
    can support its own conference. The Big XII is geographically balanced and there has been steady
    growth and heritage from the Big 6 to the Big 8 to the present Big 12 Conference. OU is the 800-
    pound gorilla and your support is critical. Thank you for your consideration David.
    Have a good day.
    BOB

    That's some mighty fine reading and serves to squash this ridiculous notion that OU is committed to the Big 12-2-1+1+1-1.

    Dole was a Kansas senator. Makes sense that he would try to keep the Big 12 together. He and Boren were in the Senate together.

    So I'm sure when you read it, you noticed where all of this stuff is from late August and early September before the Pac-12 window closed.

    Your act is as tired as your University's whoring itself out to the Big Ten and then the SEC. If you want to go through this whole self-masturbatory charade, taking joy in some sort of imagined schadenfreude, I'd suggest you do it elsewhere. Whether or not the Big 12 actually survives or actually falls apart, sleep well knowing that Missouri has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to slow the destruction of college football through conference realignment.

    Please show me anything other than a bunch of e-mails from irrational fans that want out of the Big 12. There was nothing from OU administration that said they were not committed to the Big 12. Boren's interview was already public information.

    You lose, but thanks for playing. Try again.

    Unfortuntately you can't argue with dumb.

    The thought of Bob Dole using a computer made me chuckle.

    You know .... we never really liked you guys when you were in the conference, but we always felt we had to put up with you since you were sort of family .... kind of like the 32 year old half-wit mostly "special" second cousin who was always at the Christmas dinner picking his nose at the table. Now that you have quit on the B12, please also quit on all things B12 and get the hell out of here and go suck up to those cheaters in the SEC that will be sodomizing mizzou FB for the next decade.
