Required reading and spot on.

I dont know of any people that are really complaining...
but I sure as hell know plenty of them and I talk to them a lot, including during the search. And NOTHING was leaked.

And the related article listed there, saying OU wants to continue Bedlam:

Yep, step 1 is to find some wins.

because it will be really difficult to explain that 'off week' against Auburn or Miss-State.

but I sure as hell know plenty of them and I talk to them a lot, including during the search. And NOTHING was leaked.

Hopefully the OSU president continues to demonstrate strength and not roll over to OU as TAM did.

Big assumption to assume that either the ACC or Pac12 would actually want OSU to join their conferences.

With the way things are looking in the coming years a league of leftovers will form, especially if a 30-40 team super league breaks away to create AAA NFL. Maybe the left out teams can carry the torch of what everyone really loves about college football.

Yeah, that ain't happening. But the rest of it was good.

I think this is exactly what will happen. Let the bluebloods break off. That leaves 90-plus Division I programs that still want to play meaningful football and whose fans still want to watch them play.

I predict that the leftovers create a college football environment that more closely resembles pre-BCS college football with regional conferences and FCS/DII/DIII football with a vastly expanded playoff. I also predict that those who now fear the future will find that really damn fun.

Does OSU give a ridley a** what the president of OU wants?

OSU responds to OU's request to continue Bedlam:

That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

As bad as this was, at least the OU prez acknowledged OSU's existence. The tweet from Del Conte just slobbering over their renewed relationship with A&M was disgusting. No other P5s exist in the state but A&M and UT.

Good read.

The Big 12 was possibly the best football conference in the country back when Nebraska, Colorado, A&M and Missouri were still involved .

But then UT tried to enforce their same strong arm tactics like they had in the old SWC.....but Nebraska ( Tom Osborne ) wasn't going to take that bull*****

So goodbye Big 12 and hello to the Big 12 ( 10 ) abomination .

Who is REALLY surprised OU and UT finally left ?

Baylor shouldn't be. The handwriting was clearly on the wall for years.

Baylor deserves a place in the basketball crazy ACC.

If they don't have one after all these years of warning signs....that is 100% the responsibility of the BU administration .

Imagine how TCU is feeling. He was their long time AD until 3 years ago. Imagine seeing Mack being AD at Texas and reading these quotes and he hasn't been a long time AD here yet.

I warned my TCU friends that this would eventually happen. The more country club, non-football folks didn't understand, but a few did and now they're seeing my point.

We can't be in a conference with UT, because they won't abide by rules that are even.

And yet, they have our tax dollars. Therein lies the problem.
but I sure as hell know plenty of them and I talk to them a lot, including during the search. And NOTHING was leaked.

They won't abide by rules that are tilted heavily in their favor.

Exactly.

This is government largesse run amok. It's not like these people represent Texas, they're like, East Germany in the Communist empire.

Totally agree with his take re Ut and Ou.

Don't see the future like he sees it, but whatever.

This is what I would love to see.

I'm not sure this AAA concept for football works out for the big state schools in the long run. Football is not baseball and the difference between teams practicing together and developing athletes to work within a specific scheme over years may be a difference that hasn't been thought out. How long does the average baseball player spend in AAA hoping for a call v. a typical blue chip QB or WR who spends 3 years at the college level before going to the NFL? What happens when you have all of your best skill players leaving the big programs for the NFL each year? I wonder how a revolving door will affect the stability of football programs. Maybe even more than big name coaches leaving

It won't work unless they keep it larger than the 24-30 team league folks keep alluding to. That will be great short term and then will cannibalize itself. The other things keeping folks (outside of the respective fanbases) watching will be gone and honestly if its semi-pro at that point, the quality of play is pretty weak especially in comparison to the pros.

These are also the larger programs and they play mostly a vanilla style of line them up and play football. So the more entertaining schemes and innovations usually originating from smaller programs will be limited as well. Not a great long term formula but it sure will probably look great for the short term.
