    Re: Big 12 Publicly Reprimands Rhoads

    The best way to foster mediocrity is to ban criticism.

    I get that coaches never see penalties for their own teams, and opening the door to allowing criticism could get out of hand. I have to think that it would be easy to notice who whines just to whine and who makes legitimate points just by paying attention.

    Or continue the ban of speaking about referees and refuse to hold them accountable. I guess that works, too.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    P.S. Rhoads comments? IT WAS WORTH IT!!
    Would decapitation warrant a suspension or would they both receive reprimands?

    Most of the college football world is on our side and that's what matters.

    Remember, any publicity is good publicity, and being on all the news programs and the Dan Patrick show is well worth the slap on the wrist. The Cyclone brand is that of integrity and honor, that is the message, and we won't lay down for anybody!

    That's kind of the point though. This is basically the Big 12 admitting we got screwed. Hell, I bet Rhoads would be more satisfied had he got fined.

    So you would rather the Big 12 issue the same statement AND fine Rhoads? That's stupid. A statement like this was coming either way.

    Re: Big 12 Publicly Reprimands Rhoads

    Davis' reprimand effing sux. Everybody in the GD nation said it was either "the cheapest shot in college football thus far" or "the cheapest shot you'll see this year". Suspension for at least a game is what the pundits were saying. Some saying he should sit a couple/few games. **** Bowlsby and the Big12.

    They pay us much more than any other conference that would be interested in us would pay us for how little we contribute to the revenue. So suck it up and deal with it.

    It's time for you to go.

    Of course not, it's just annoying that this is their way of telling Rhoads he was right. It's more of an insult, if you will.

    Re: Big 12 Publicly Reprimands Rhoads

    There was no fine/suspension as the Blow Job 12 knows they screwed up.

    I get it...I'm just saying the letter was going to come with either option.

    I agree. And I don't want to spend Rhoads' money for him, but I kind of wonder if he would rather have the stupid fine.

    Re: Big 12 Publicly Reprimands Rhoads

    I am not surprised by the statement on CPR. That is just the unaccountable standard BS I would expect from a puppet state. Technically it is absolutely correct. Basically it should read, no matter how screwed over you get from the clearly bias Big 12 officials you are not allowed to say anything about it.

    I am assuming that the targeting rule does not apply to Mike Davis since he is an offensive player. If I was a Texas fan I would be embarrassed that Mack is not suspending Davis. I sure would want CPR to sit anyone that did something like that. Just ridiculous, and expected.
