    Time to Punch the Bully in the Nose

    OK, it's time for Beebe, JG, GG, and the rest of the AD's and U-presidents to grow some stones and tell Texa$ to screw off. How nice would the conference be without the big bully around? Drop 'em horns.....If Texas leaves, we still have plenty of coverage in the state of Texas. If they want to play A&M or Oklahoma in the future, gouge the hell out of them, or don't play them. If the big 10 did not allow Notre Dame to basically play most of their teams, perhaps ND would be more inclined to join their conference. The loss of revenue from losing just Texas would be worth not having them be such a pain in the axx in all other ways. Black ball them from future schedules, see how much they really enjoy spending all of their mondy traveling all over the west coast. Somebody call their bluff. If the remaining 11 would stand up the them and tell them to play nice or take a flying leap, (oh and by the way, none of the rest of us are going with you), I think they may come back to reality a bit.

    At this point, I don't think UT is the one with the reality issues...

    Or maybe this was a post...

    Our problem is Nebraska, not Texas. If Texas left the big 12, so would the other Texas schools. If Nebraska left, our conference probably blows up. If Texas left, our conference definitely blows up.

    I think this is already in the works. Big 10 is telling ND that if they are turned down again and expand to 16, ND should begin to forget about getting games with UM, MSU, Purdue, and any of the schools they might add (Syracuse, Rutgers).

    Other than that, this advice to **** off UT makes about as much sense as Jesse James stepping out on Sandra.

    Re: Time to Punch the Bully in the Nose

    No sarcasm intended, let Texas stand alone. See how attractive they are without all of their wingmen. They need OU and to an extent A&M to be attractive. The big 12 without Texas would be just fine, it's losing some of the parts that they want to drag along that will kill the big 12. They are like the rich kid that has always had daddys money to make him popular. On their own everyone realizes what a dick they are. They have to surround themselves with good wingmen to make them look more attractive than what they really are. Put them in the big 10 or pac 10 alone and USC or OSU or Mich. look just as good or better than they do.

    Any conference would gladly take Texas. The only reason there is any wrangling is that Texas wants to bring others.

    The most successful team in college football financially and success wise. You think ND has it easy? Wait till you see what Texas would have.
