    Chip's newest article, also says, interestingly enough, that all the Big 12 South AD's have said they want to go forward with a 10 team Big 12 that would have 9 conference football games a year.

    I think this improves our odds of a possible MWC scenario, but who knows anymore.

    Amazing, considering ESPN was scrolling that Utah had the edge. I'm ready for Chip Brown to crawl back in the whole he came out of.

    Apparently, the UT AD must have a reason for wanting everyone to believe KU has a shot at the pac 10... since thats where all his info is coming from..

    I don't know how I would feel about that. It would suck a lot to face both Texas and Oklahoma ever year. We would have no shot at a BCS bowl.

    That's fine with me. We've never been in one.

    lets be honest, with only 3 nonconference games, and one being iowa, itd be pretty damn hard to make a bowl, period, in that scenario If you look back to last year, we'd have lost one of our chances for a non-conference win (assuming we'd still play iowa), and our Nebraska and colorado wins. I dont see us beating UT, OU, or TT last year. We likely wouldve been 3-9.

    Thats true as well. It makes me hate that scenario even more.

    ah, it appears Texas has selected Kansas as their next target to pressure into making a decision. Bold move Texas, bold move.

    of course they do. nebraska wanted that too. but, according to nebraska - even at the end - they asked texas about a big 12 network, and texas said no deal. nebraska had options, they bolted.

    texas would love to stay in the big 12. only with more cache over the conference than they already have. texas network, all the money for them. we get some scraps. Schools like NU and CU had options and had had enough of the Texas BS. good for them.

    This is not about texas and those schools going to the pac ten. it is about texas wanting it all. they just need conference members votes, and they've been working on that all along.

    You are right that Texas wants this to be done on their terms. Whether it involves the Big 12 or not.

    That is part of the game now. UT has the same advantage that Ohio State has in the Big 10. They can play a tough game, and never have to worry because the rest of the league can't match up to them. They have a guaranteed BCS bowl every year because their conference is so weak (I know they won some bowl games last year).

    There is no way that this conference survives unless we they let UT do the Texas cable network.

    Nebraska was the same way, they voted against revenue sharing in an alliance with UT (plus they still were enough of a name the first few years to profit). These last years have been much kinder to UT and OU. Osborne is a scumbag (his football felons make Iowa's look like choir boys), he knew that Nebraska had nothing for the Big 12 anymore, and the longer they played in the league their prestige, and power, would continue to diminish.

    The Big 10 style is much more in line with Osborns he is more comfortable not having to watch his team defend the spread...

    The question is is that still preferable to the alternatives?
