    Why no Big XII expansion? Why Beebe?

    So if all the other conferences are making moves here, why is the Big XII doing nothing? Why were we not proactive? Why did we not jump on a few schools from around the nation with potential as soon as rumors of expansion started? And, why, if he has done nothing in the past few days, is Beebe still head of the Big XII?

    A little more seriously - would you want to join a conference run by Tex... I mean, Beebe?

    Beebe left a stuffed mannequin in his likeness sitting at his desk with the phone taped to the ear while he made off in Dodds' Escalade wearing a fake mustache.

    Re: Why no Big XII expansion? Why Beebe?

    Because the Big 12 would only be able to bring in schools that would end up reducing the revenue per school for current schools.

    And teams that might increase revenue per school in the Big 12 would be those schools that are currently making more in their conference than they would in the Big 12.

    That said, there is no excuse for Big 12 to have not explored alliances with conferences such as Big East

    Re: Why no Big XII expansion? Why Beebe?

    What did the Big XII have to offer?

    A stellar TV package? Nope.

    Revenue sharing? Nope.

    A competitive balanced conference? Nope.

    Re: Why no Big XII expansion? Why Beebe?

    I dont get this either. Why could the B12 not poach some schools from other conferences? I know that we dont have the network established that the B10 does but why not go after Boise, Utah, BYU, Air Force or even some of the Pac 10 schools.

    If we were supposedly the 2nd best conference in college FB why are we the ones who just go away?

    There is really only one explaination, horrible leadership. Beebe is not worthy of running this conference (or what is left of it thanks to him). I think that TX had him in their back pocket and he allowed this all to fall apart because he will end up with a soft landing wherever TX ends up.

    What a jack ***


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    I think we all know that Texas and more money drove the Fuskers to the B10.
