    If ISU is giving up its Neb/Colo departure money

    can we at least ensure that some of the proceeds will be used to get that mole removed from Dan Beebe's cheek? My goodness.

    I am missing something here. Exactly WHY are we giving up that money? I've caught on on messages posted today, but I haven't been able to figure out why we did that. I gather that it had something to do with keeping the conference together, but I don't get the connection. Why would us (and other schools) giving up the Nebraska/Colorado departure fees help hold the conference together? It doesn't make sense.

    Dan Beebe said during his teleconference the 5 remaining schools were willing to give up part of their portions to OU, TAMU, TX to entice them to stay in the Big 12.

    Nowhere has anyone said that's a done deal. Beebe also said in the teleconference that TX had said they appreciated that offer but aren't really interested in that.

    GG and JP said that offer wasn't really the case and they didn't really know what that was referencing.

    At this point it seems that either Beebe mispoke, or it was an offer that was declined.

    As of now though there is no official word that this is true, or any clarification of what was actually offered.

    If UT declined the money, I am going out and buying some burnt orange gear. That is a classy move.

    Sorry, I'm a little behind on some of today's activity. Regardless, my point was to poke fun at Beebe.

    So completely unexpected. And uncharacteristic. Of Texas, not you.

    maybe this was a little ingenious move by the "Fab 5" to embarrass Texas and show them just how unequal this really is and make them look even worse or maybe it was the kind of deal where Texas came out in support and the Fab 5 through this on the table to ensure A&M didn't go SEC or maybe its all BS? Hard to believe all BS though since the commish reported on it.

    Classy Texas is not nor is any of this process, the intentional leaks, the manuevering, manipulating, none of it was classy.

    Big 12 Assistant Commissioner Bob Burda responded that the 10 schools will share “all withdrawal fees withheld from Colorado and Nebraska,” calling the earlier talks about uneven distribution of the penalty a “good-faith offer.”

    If we offered that money to UT, and they really did turn it down, I have a little more respect for the Longhorns.

    Agreed. One a scale of 1 to 10, they'll move up to the low negative numbers from the negative teens.
