One thing that hasn't shown up, or if it has I have missed it, is how much this turmoil wreaks havoc on the recruiting process for all sports. We obviously don't have the recruiting advantages many of the schools in our conference do, so when you add in the fact that you don't know where you are conference wise, it has to be a killer. You can bet many schools would use that as a tool against us. A perfect example is in the recruitment of Negus Webster-Chan. If it really is down to Iowa State or Missouri, and Missouri is locked into a league (whether it remains Big 12 or SEC), that gives them a huge recruiting edge. Same goes for all the sports. Get an agreement on paper, signed, with teeth in it, and move on. All this other crap day after day is has to be hurting us. If the Big 12 is going to die, then let's kill it, and find a league (merged with Big East or something else) and get settled in. My prayer is that the Big 12 stays together, but only if we are somewhat equal.
