The first iteratation Big 12 was so freaking awesome. Just incredible how that fell apart.

Being in a hodgepodge leftover version of that conference bothers me more than being in a non power conference. Like, being in a hodgepodge MWC honestly seems preferable. Let the Big 12 die.

Agree, and as I said above, our small timey AD and coach are perfect for the MWC or whatever crap conference we end up in. Hell, most of our fanbase will absolutely love....love saying that they prefer having kids that "love the game" and "earn their scholarships", etc.

Does anyone else think that OU is the ugly chick Texas is bringing to the dance as cover?  Like Texas as a chick is hot, but stupid (big fan base, relative lack of success), and OU is the ugly but brainy BFF (football success, relatively small fan base)?

I’m handling this worse than I expected.  It will have to be a straight CFB divorce for me.
What do you think will change so much that you quit?
The fun of cfb for me is regional rivalries.  Like, I really enjoyed the K-State OSU/Baylor/Tech series.  I've watched all of those games since I was little.  If we're in a league with a bunch of low-profile strangers then i just really don't care.  As it is, I only ever watched Big 12 games.

If the conference survives survives and we just add a few new faces, i'm sure i'll still watch.  But if we're relegated to the MWC or something then i don't think i'll be able to muster any GAF to invest time or money.

I want Boise State, Colorado State and Houston...who else, UCF, USF?
I mainly only watch K-State anyways, I don't watch big 10 or SEC games, because I don't care.
Texas is never going to have "enough"...it's always more, more, more.

For me it's Arky, Nubbs, Houston and maybe a toss up between Memphis and Cinci

I remember going to Big 8 games as a townie kid. Everyone we played was right across the border. Losing Colorado, Nebraska, and Missouri was a major bummer.

At this point lets just kick UT and OU out of the conf. out of spite, and watch them get turned down by the other conferences so they have to go independent and then have the big 12 get to a 16 team conference with east vs. west divisions.

I'm sure this is probably a terrible idea...I'm just sick of UT and OU's bullshit.

KSU should be proactive and a leader of the orphans in getting into the PAC.  Get DEN-MHK routes set up.  PAC people seem open to taking in Big 12 scraps.

OU and Texas have all the money in the world.  Moving to SEC is purely to stay competitive with recruiting.  They don’t want a 5-star QB from Dallas to choose Bama and make millions from local Texas businesses.  I’m confident this is all happening because of NIL.

How in the world would moving to the SEC help them in recruiting? If Texas wants to get better at recruiting, they're already pretty damn good, they should hire better recruiters.

OU and UT employ business and operations intelligence people to monitor financial reports, industry moves, moves made by rivals, etc.   It appears that OU and UT have concluded that the upcoming TV deals are not going to satisfy their revenue requirements, and that the broadcast landscape has changed entirely.  They are going to move pre-emptively to preserve their program status - we've all seen how quickly OU can throw the conference under the bus, this should come as no surprise. 

My only consolation?  We aren't being subjected to the moronic musings of OU's David Boren.

Great post

Texas could always go independent. We should also angle for deal where KS/OU schools go to the PAC. Advantages include PAC getting more than scraps and not breaking up OK schools.

It's not a terrible idea at all, the only real issue with it is that kicking them out would make the rest of the conference forfeit their GOR money and we need that more than they do.

They have to be thrilled with this. They are negotiating their new media deal right now. The new commissioner was just handed a great opportunity.
