    What will the Big 12 do?

    Curious as to what the Big 12 does... My guess with all the ranting against this and the "Texas League" nickname, they'll actually stand their ground and support the officiating crew, or do nothing. What about the Davis cheap shot? Will there be a suspension or not?

    Davis will not be suspended. The Big 12 will apologize to Texas and send a blaming bag of dog poo to Paul Rhoads' office.

    At best an apology of officiating mistakes will be made that will do nothing to help our players. Most likely nothing.

    Well the head of the big 12 was just happy after the game last night. However, I think the head of the big 12's fans want him fired anyway.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: What will the Big 12 do?

    In all honesty, my take on this has less to do with being the "Texas League" and more to do with what the booth official was thinking... I truly believe he decided he didn't want to be the guy that got Mack Brown fired and played the "no indisputable video evidence" card.

    Absolutely no way they apologize for the fumble. They will hide behind the call "standing" instead of being "confirmed".

    Big 12 is to Texas as NCAA is to SEC

    Re: What will the Big 12 do?

    Bob Bowlsby: Hey Coach, tough game last night. Your guys really battled. My official reason for this call is to inform you that the conference will be issuing a formal apology for the missed call on the goal line fumble and will also be suspending Mike Davis one game for his cheap shot on Deon Broomfield.

    CPR: Hey, that's great. Can't wait to get the apology so I can share it with my guys. It'll really pick up their spirits. And after we read it, we can put it in the display case with all our other apology letters from the conference and the NCAA. We're really building quite a collection!

    Bowlsby: Great, glad we can put this behind us and move ahead. Oh, one last thing - I'm also fining you $10,000 for your postgame comments last night. Have a great weekend!

    Click.

    Yeah, where is the "fine Rhoads" option in the poll?

    Anybody have an idea when fines typically come down for this type of thing?
