    Re: Williams Blog: The Big 12 needs to fight

    Good read. I do disagree with those B12 divisions being equal. Of course this is estimation but after OK the North Division could have the four next best teams in 5 years with Nebby, OK St. Mizzou and ISU. If Turner Gill succeeds there could be one more. I refuse to believe that TCU has the 5 year potential we do and I really think we could be better than Tech but IMO it will take TT 4-5 years to be where they want to be. This is all debatable and of course speculation but i just see the North having the potential to turn into what the South is now.

    You say OU and Nebraska aren't going anywhere. Huh? If the two Texas schools leave, why would the Sooners and Huskers stick around to prop up the Big 12 financially?
    Only way those two would stay is if they got to keep most or all of the revenue they earn. No other way, sorry...

    Don't they keep most their revenue anyways? Correct me if I am wrong, but we don't do much for revenue sharing, do we?

    All Big 12 bowl money and sponsorship money in shared equally; TV money is pro-rated based on # of appearances. ISU gets lots of $$$ from the successes of Texas, OU, etc.

    I assumed you were inviting responses to your blog - sorry.
    I just see a lot of posts that seem to take it for granted that OU and Neb. are just going to "carry on" if the two Texas schools leave. I doubt it.

    I've seen Iowa State's name mentioned as a potential Big Ten get. Why aren't we hearing much about it locally? Is this another one of JP's secret, diabolical plots?

    You're welcome to write whatever you want. It is a message board. Just pointing out one more time that the blog was hypothetical and not what I thought was fact. Everything on this topic is really. Nobody, other than a handful of conference commissioners, athletic directors and school presidents have any clue as to what is going to happen.

    I hate the little 11, but I'm sure it is prettier from the inside.

    I'll be shocked if that happens. I just don't think that Iowa State offers enough to the Big Ten as far as TV goes for the Clones to get serious consideration.
