    Did Anyone Else Notice at JP's Presser Yesterday...

    That he thanked every AD remaining in the league except TT and OSU? That struck me as noteworthy. Tech and OSU are probably a little bitter because they aren't getting the "extra" chunk of money that OU, Texas, and aTm are getting. I wonder if there is some resentment there, or if it was just an oversight by JP. What do you think?

    Re: Did Anyone Else Notice at JP's Presser Yesterday...

    I think there were three factions of ADs and Universities throughout the crisis. Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma were the three insitutions actually making the decisions. Iowa State, Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri were trying to come up with creative solutions to keep Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma in the league. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State were going to pretty much follow what Texas and Oklahoma did respectively. I don't believe Texas Tech and Oklahoma State were active participants; not because they didn't want to be but because they were not in a position to do so. Therefore, I don't believe Jamie's not mentioning those schools in the press conference was any type of "slight" on them.

    Don't kid yourself, the only reason TT and OSU are attractive is because they are attaching themselves to Texas and OU.

    Likely, he didn't know if they had recommitted or not. Remember, these two were going to try to holdout at the last minute.

    Re: Did Anyone Else Notice at JP's Presser Yesterday...

    I agree, I believe they (TT and OSU) are the followers in this instance. However, I just figured as an olive branch, JP would have thanked them for any work that they put in, just to be cordial. I probably am reading into this too far, it just struck me as a little off.

    I support your theory. TT is upset at losing PAC Ten move and OSU is mad at KU for being a last minute sub. They are unhappy campers.

    I don't think it was a mistake at all. From the way this all shook out, I think that the remaining 5 really didn't care what TT and OSU did. Those two are replaceable. OU, UT and aTm are not.

    Worst of all, they're upset that they were placed in the $14-17mil category with the rest of us without having any say in the matter.

    Ok, I was away for a day. Are we still getting in on the 14-17 mil per year? :)

    Re: Did Anyone Else Notice at JP's Presser Yesterday...

    At the peak of the crisis they were in a better positon than us because they would have got invited to tag along along wih the "Premium programs. On the ohter hand thay had little or no control over their destiny. If the BIg XII dissolved at least we would have made our own decisions. If I were OSU I would have leaned towards the SEC w/ aTm. Arkansas is close and would make a great rival for them.

    I don't think anyone really knows.
