    A Little Arrogance From DeLoss Dodds and Texas...

    Just for your reading pleasure, a little bit of arrogance from DeLoss Dodds and Texas. Does anybody really want to be in a conference controlled by this ego-maniac.

    Conference realignment mess is all about the University of Texas - ESPN Dallas

    Can you blame him though? We may not like it, but if ISU was that powerful in college sports, we'd want our AD to do the same thing.

    I guess it's your duty to try and deflect ire from NU, but it's not working. Osborne is just as much of an egomaniac as Dodd, and NU is just as power hungry and desirous of controlling the conference as UT. If NU was any different, they would have voted for equal revenue sharing in the past. End of story.

    They are looking out for Texas...as they should. I can't blame them for that.

    Come on, becrisgreg. Have you heard any of that type of rhetoric from Nebraska, Missouri or Colorado? Absolutely not. In spite of the picture some people have tried to paint, Nebraska has been very restrained in their statements regarding this whole issue, as have Missouri and Colorado. A statement like, "we'll finish it," reaks of arrogance.

    If kNU and Mizzou do bolt I do hope Texas decides to stick out rather than go to the Pac-10.

    If this happens, Texas doesn't stick around because their revenue voting buddy (Nebraska) will be gone, thus their whole reason for staying in the BigXII.

    Seriously? UT can be arrogant since they are the king. NU is in UT's shadow, and last I looked, is the school that is willing to take down the conference for a few more bucks.

    TO and NU are the whiny babies. But I guess NU will find out if the grass is any greener dealing with OSU, Mich and PSU.

    What are you talking about? The other members could have out voted Texas and kNU at any time (10-2). You really think ISU/KSU/KU are going to demand further revenue sharing when Texas has an outstanding invite to leave?

    OU votes with Texas. Nebbie has been the hold-up and Texas's secret weapon. If they are gone Texas loses voting control to the lesser members. And, no one the bigXII could add would vote against revenue sharing...hence why Texas would look elsewhere.

    If Butler University and their basketball program represents everything that is "right" in college athletics; the University of Texas is the polar opposite and represents everything that is "wrong" about college athletics.

    Great article! Thanks for posting.

    No. He means that if NU leaves, the four school voting block preventing equal revenue sharing (UT, A&M, OU, and NU) is broken. UT will not be interested in replacing NU with a TCU that will vote against them in the future.

    I still don't follow. The other nine could have overrided the three.

    Texas will get whatever they want to keep the conference intact if MU and kNU leave.

    Finally somebody spelled it out.

    But explain this to me: Why wouldn't the remaining B12 members allow the by-laws to be amended in a manner which provides for unequal revenue sharing that can't be changed without unanimous consent to appease Texas?
