    KU asks NU & MU to stay

    Kansas Jayhawks chancellor asks Nebraska not to leave Big 12 - ESPN

    nothing earth shattering, but perhaps NU and MU will listen more to the old big 8 than the south. Though we have heard that Texas and NU are "close."

    I sure hope Pollard and Geoffery arent grovelling, how embarassing.

    I don't know - some of the best advice I've had on marriage is learn to grovel. At least they are hopefully doing it behind closed doors...

    How is it groveling or embarrassing? Frankly, I hope Geoffrey does the same thing.

    Somebody has to make a case for the status quo!

    Re: KU asks NU & MU to stay

    Does KU's FB coach (Turner Gill) have any connection to the AD at NU (Osborne)?

    I would have Turner, Turn Up the Heat on Nebraska and make some calls.

    I think he played under Osborne. But I really dont see how any amount of groveling will change a universities mind especially when BIG money is involved. There is nothing the Big12 can offer that the Big10 can't better by 3 fold. We just have to sit and wait, groveling only makes us look weak and pathetic. Public groveling is just downright embarassing.

    Advocating is not groveling.

    Re: KU asks NU & MU to stay

    The way that you make a case to stay is too show that it would be in the best financial interests of NU and MU to stay. I don't see how a case can be made that Big 12 revenues will exceed Big 10 revenues. This is a business decision; a decision should not be based on factors other than which Conference will produce the greater revenue.
