    Angry What a kick

    Scout.com: What Can The Big 12 Do To Survive?

    Fuitak's recommendation to "save" the B12: "Ditch Iowa State and Baylor."

    Where does he think Texas is going? Big 10??? Quote below from the article:

    I don’t think Texas will go to the Pac 10, but I don’t think they’ll stick around, either,

    re: What a kick

    OK, take KSU over us. That's fine. See you in a couple years. The more I think about this, the more I want to go to the MWC. I am convinced it will be a BCS conference once they added BSU and on top of that, they could have a few other former BCS schools. I think we have a better shot there. I would love to play one of the big boys in a BCS bowl in 3-4 years and kick the **** out of them. That would be great.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Congrats on getting to that point, I couldn't do it. I find it hard to take someone seriously when they write something like that.

    Re: What a kick

    Well, that's what we get for sucking in both of the major sports for the majority of the past 10 years. Not sure why this type of sentiment comes as a surprise to anyone.

    Re: What a kick

    This is the exact line of reasoning that will eventually lead to the demise of all small population schools from major conferences. If this first domino falls, eventually it will be a handful of the biggest schools excluding everybody else.

    Our last ten years in football have probably been the best in our history, but apparently that was sucking.

    Re: What a kick

    Texas is not going to be happy associating with a bunch of Kalifornia folk. At the end of the day, Texas will stay in a new-look B12 and extort even more money and power from the schools in the conference.

    I haven't logged on to any scout site in years since I signed up with an e-mail address used only for a scout site and got swamped with spam.

    its all relative. when you are an ISU fan you have been trained that mediocre is as good as it gets. But, to 80% of the BCS colleges our record over the last ten years is indeed "sucking."
