    It's coming down

    The celebrated asterisk banner is coming down

    Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
    I just received word from Texas assistant athletic director for media relations John Bianco that the school plans to remove a display in the team room inside the Moncrief-Neuhaus training facility that credited the school with a Big 12 title -- with an asterisk -- from last season.

    Probably a wise call. Asterisking your own accomplishments probably never a good idea.

    I hope they at least kept the southern division champs up. If I were Texas this year I would run up the score on every opponent I could. In the press conferences if people questioned the score Mack should explain that the rules and voters favor teams running up the score. If he had done it last year like OU, then he would have been in the championship game.

    It would be perfectly fair to keep up the division champs one. As for the other, taking down the conference champs one is a good idea. It does seem a little ridiculous.


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

    Fortunately, I think the Big12 changed that rule so know it mimics the SEC's rule.
