    Big XII heading south?

    I'm pretty sure this has been discussed here before, but I haven't seen it in a while. Thoughts?

    One one hand, I don't want it to be moved to Texas permanently. A trip to KC (every other year) is much more convienient for the North teams.

    One the other hand, I'd be happy to see ISU playing in a Big 12 title game no matter where it was held.

    Re: Big XII heading south?

    Another reason I want to see the original Big 8 tell the 4 Texas teams to "**** off". We let them in and now they think they own the place...

    Re: Big XII heading south?

    No way. I'm sure that's probably one of the most amazing venues in all of sports.....but it's also a ridiculous advantage for the already stacked South. Bring Texas or OK up to KC and let them play the North teams in the snow and ice every other year....

    Re: Big XII heading south?

    What has the attendance at Arrowhead been like compared to Reliant stadium? I am sure Jerry Jones is giving them a sweet deal to have in Dallas, but it would practically be a home game for Oklahoma and Texas.

    The team that needs to speak up is Nebraska, they are (were) the powerhouse of the North and Tom Osborne still carries respect the football world. ISU doesn't carry much weight in this discussion since they have not been a championship game.

    I do like the game being in KC every other year as it gives the northern schools an advantage of being use to playing in the cold. But I can see it being played in teh South, in a weather controled dome to ensure that the best team is winning not just the best team that can play well in snow.

    Re: Big XII heading south?

    It should alternate between Arrowhead and the new Cowboy Stadium. This would be a tremendous slap in the face to the six teams in the North. I understand the appeal and the draw, but KC has a first class venue with an excellent bar and restaurant scene as well as plenty of hotel space to go around. I'm adamantly opposed to moving these type of games to southern, warmer locations and that goes for bowl games as well. I think the idea of having a bowl game at Yankee Stadium is great idea, and I'd love to see some of these struggling bowls moved to more northern cities.

    This. What a crock of ****. I am sorry but part of college football is being able to play a game outdoors late in the year when its cold and the weather is unpredictable. It's already bad enough that Texas and Oklahoma will never play a November road game against a North Division team because its too cold for them. Does every decision that the Big XII conference makes have to cater specifically to Texas & Oklahoma?

    I agree with this. It's ok to play a football game in the cold. Fans will still show up.

    Amen. Look at the attendance at some of these bowl games and it is pathetic. I actually sat and watched the 1st quarter of the PapaJohns bowl game a few years back and it literally looked like there was 1,000 people at that game. The announcers kept having to explain that the side of the field opposite of the cameras was empty because all of the fans were sitting on the side behind the cameras..... Yeah Right.
