    Where is the love?

    I'm calling for a new Big 12 commissioner. Dan Beebe needs to be replaced because went public and showed favoritism in a job that requires neutrality.

    Also the Big 12 blog for ESPN ignored our question today.

    J-Dog (Kansas City, MO)

    This isnít over, Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe said Wednesday afternoon in a telephone interview with The Kansas City Star. That was the news we unfortunately woke up to this morning. I have multiple questions for you to do your best at fielding: 1) why would a conference commissioner openly and publicly side with one team over another? 2) Why is their no outrage over a 7-5 Oklahoma team being picked over an 8-4 Missouri team? 3) What can be done to make sure Beebe is no longer employed by the Big12? If this isn't a fire-able offense, then what is? 4) As it is obvious the Big12 sides against teams, how do we finally get some equality in the conference? In this day and age how do you not see the model of the Big10 and use it as a standard? What a deplorable stance for a commissioner to take.

    This question went unanswered.

    When will we have our respect?

    You don't have to read every post before you start a thread, but maybe scan the board first.

    Favoritism???? I would call it common sense. Mizzou beat us and have 2 more wins than us.

    It's favortism from the conference toward a particular school. It has nothing to do with record. The head of the conference spoke out publicly against one school IN FAVOR of another within the conference. What don't you get about that?

    ^ this.

    I love how there is a HUGE uproar about it. Really, Missouri deserves to go there before us, simply based on their performance vs. ours.

    What don't you get about the fact that we don't deserve the bowl game over Mizzou?

    That's not the arguement. Do I think Mizzou should be there over us? Yes. But it's not up to me, you or the conference. It's up to the bowl committee. The arguement is that the conference spoke out against one team over another when they are supposed to be non-bias. Whether Beebe was right or not is irrelevant. He can't go to bat for one school over another within the Big XII.

    Are you sure you aren't a Hawkeye fan? It is usually them who throw common sense out the window and live in a delusional fantasy world.

    I might also advise against fruity thread titles.

    No I get it. You want to whine about Iowa State supposedly being discriminated against. Poor ISU....

    Have we gotten shafted in the past, you bet, but this isn't one of those times.

    The guy called a spade a spade and that is all. I bet you JP, PR, and everyone else who really matters could give a rip.

    Nope, he's right, I do want to whine about how the Big XII hates us. It sucks.
