    Get ready...Bowlsby just dropped bombs

    Here in Dallas, the Big 12 commish basically threw the NCAA under the bus. I'll have details in a bit but it was incredibly newsy and his comments will dominate the conversation coming from day one at Big 12 media days.

    A few tweets:

    Bowlsby: Probably unrealistic to think we can manage football and field hockey with the same set of rules." #Big12MediaDays

    From Chuck Carlton...

    Bowlsby on NCAA: "This is not a time when trimming around the hedges is going to make much difference."

    From Dennis Dodd...

    In the last few minutes I have heard the most scathing critique of the NCAA by a meaningful person in the Emmert era.

    Re: Get ready...Bowlsby just dropped bombs

    On the theory of the "power 5" leagues leaving the NCAA, Bowlsby says he hasn't spoken to anybody who believes that will happen. Calls that a "last resort."

    I have never heard of this theory...which are the 5 power leagues and why would they leave the NCAA?

    Big 12, Big 10, ACC, SEC, and Pac 12. They would leave so they wouldn't be under the rule of the NCAA.

    Fake Dan Beebe ‏@DanBeebe 1m Children and the easily offended shouldn't be watching Bob Bowlsby commit arson on Mark Emmert's face.

    Good. Someone with some actual clout in the NCAA needed to say it.

    Hopefully this will break the ice and other prominent persons within the NCAA will start lobbying for changes.

    They did, leagues are just laying the groundwork to set up shop outside the NCAA.
    The Ed O'bannon lawsuit, could put an end to the NCAA as we know it..

    I didn't even know the Big 12 had an air force. There is the Texas based Commemorative Air Force, formerly known as the Confederate Air Force, but they are flying mostly WWII vintage antiques. I guess they could refuel in Big 12 country (Ames) on their way back from a ran on Indianapolis since our runways are long enough for the B-17.

    It's well known that we're out of gas here in Ames. They aren't refueling here.
