    Re: Bowlsby Officially New Big 12 Commish

    Initially I didn't think this would be a good hire but after thinking about his experience at Iowa and Stanford, I think this is a great improvement and he will help add stability to the big 12.

    Or..... I hate this hire, but now I want to save face. Knowing a hawkeye is running the conference is pathetic!

    Obviously Iowa was a stepping stone for bigger and better things

    Re: Bowlsby Officially New Big 12 Commish

    I think his connections in the NCAA will help the conference a lot. It seems that leaks from the BCS/playoff meetings that there is some backlash to Delaney and Larry Scott Rose Bowl demands, so having a guy in there like Bowlsby fighting for us would only be a good thing.

    Re: Bowlsby Officially New Big 12 Commish

    Well his relationships with the Big Ten and Pac-12 will help during the BCS changes to keep Mike Slive from getting everything he (the SEC) wants.

    Re: Bowlsby Officially New Big 12 Commish

    I LOVE this move. So what if he's a former hawkeye? He's still an Iowan. Would you rather have another Texas puppet? If Jaime thinks it's a great hire, I'm all in.

    More teams possibly?


    “I told you, I don’t care if you’re black or white. I don’t care if you’re rich or poor. I don’t care where you come from, whether it’s Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I don’t care about any of that… But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    I throw up in my mouth every time Delaney or Scott talk about the precious tradition of the Rose Bowl.

    Yeah, rivalries that have been played for 100 years are absolutely meaningless...but propping up overrated champions of two conferences that have been left in the dust and pretending it's the most important game...THAT TRADITION MUST NEVER END!

    Do Nebraska, Colorado, Penn State and Utah have 100 years of tradition playing in the Rose Bowl??? Nope. So I don't see why it can't be Texas vs. LSU every single year for the rest of all time. F the Rose Bowl tradition.

    I like the hire. Bob's got a quality reputation. Tough guy who can handle pressure and that's exactly who you need leading this herd of cats we have in the conference.

    Re: Bowlsby Officially New Big 12 Commish

    If nothing else, it's a strong endorsement of a conference's stability when it can lure an AD away from a highly successful athletic department, right?

    I'm more interested in what other "big changes" JP was alluding to...
