    2010 - 11 Big XII Championship & Bowls

    Question: If TX, OU, Neb and the rest that publicly leave the conference before the football season this year, would they be eligible to go to Big XII Championship game and Big XII bowl games at the end of this year?

    If they say if they're out, they're out. They still need us to play this year's season, and we'll oblige them in that, but if TX and Neb have the best record in the South and North in November, I'd say the Big XII Championship game is for Big XII members. The team with the next best record - AND IS STAYING IN THE CONFERENCE - should take the slot.

    The same thing should hold true in the Big XII bowl games. Oklahoma may have a record that justifies the Fiesta bowl, but they are no longer a Big XII member. That slot should go to a member with the next best record and is staying.

    It's symbolic and meaningless in the long run, but it would be a great way of saying F. U. to them on their way out.

    So when the whole Big 12 South is gone, who would be the south representative?

    I just want them to have to pay the rest of us the buyout money they owe the conference.

    They will not leave until after the season or after next season. Too many scheduling issues.

    I'm asking, just because they play the season, does it give them the right and priviledge to represent the Big XII in the post season? They will be stated members of the Big 10 and PAC 10 at the time. I think it's fitting

    Oh, so you want them to share their revenue with you, but you'll pout and say they can't play in the title game?

    Amazes me that someone from our side would not want to try to be as aggressive as we can and get the most that we can. I don't think we have to roll over as you obviously do.

    Yes, the they will still be members of the big 12, contribute revenues to the Big 12 and play in whatever post season games that are available to them.

    It will be interesting the next year or two to see how all of these conferences and fans deal with eachother after all of this. I mean, Nebraska was going to get booed by the KU/ISU/KSU fans anyway, but now they're really going to get it. And if Baylor had fans, they'd be upset too.

    Did you just get that name now that Nebraska has joined the Big 10? Haha that's awesome!
