    I would agree. I think the death of the Big 12 will eventually be traced back to its formation. Taking the four southern schools who eventually grew to prominance (OU was our to begin with but...) grew the rift between the North and the South. Only, sadly, this time I think the Confederates might get us.

    Money title games by others and a decent TV package will destroy the Big 12 in the end.

    For sure this will hurt recruiting.

    You have several Big 12 AD's commenting and JP is conspicuously quiet. But what can you say when you are representing an institution that is totally impotent relative to what is apparently going down.

    This is very sad.

    Pollard isn't an "all out there" type of guy and we all know that. He keeps his cards well hidden.

    Re: Big 12 Commish cancel news conference

    Pollard doesn't have any "power" in all of this, but he's proactive, he has connections, and he's a persuasive businessman.

    I have faith that he's got ISU in a position to be part of a major conference. It might not be what we're used to, or something we all like, but I think he has something to keep us as relevant as possible. If something terrible were coming, I think he'd be out ahead of it.

    The Big 12 might be done, but that doesn't mean there aren't scenarios that us message board idiots are unaware of that aren't going to play out.

    The only benefit for the pac 10 is when they see it happening (like we all have seen happening in the big 12 for a long, long time) the PAC 10 schools, with quite a bit of population on its own, would still have a better chance of telling UT where to stick it if it became necessary than the big 12 schools, who have become dependent on the population of the state of texas.

    Re: Big 12 Commish cancel news conference

    I'm already bored with this one. Every time someone comes out with an article people run with it. I think people trying to be the first and break a story has completely taken all the credibility out. The second someone hears a rumor it's on Twitter. It's almost like I have to see video of an interview or a press conference to believe anything.

    How many times have ADs of schools made statements about this before? I think today was the first time an AD made a real definite prediction.

    Of course, that athletic department also produced a prediction of 10 wins in FB last year.
