I've followed college sports less and less as time has gone on. I still watch some big games but following college basketball and football has become so casual to me. This stuff is pretty trashy, and is only going to further diminish me following the NCAA in any meaningful way. I probably can't name most Big XII coaches at this point. Kind of like D-Lew, one of the things that was most fun about following K-State was our regional rivalries, and the history behind them. I just don't have much emotional energy towards caring like I once did, and I'm ok with that.

We look at schools like Nebraska or most SEC schools and see how unhealthy the mantel of football is at those places. If K-State culture looks more like a MWC school than an SEC school in 10 years, that's great. I think its for the best.

It's going to be kind of nice having fall Saturdays to do stuff outside all day.

I've never understood how people who have kids or live more than 30 minutes from Manhattan made it to all these games anyway. Its a lot of time investment

I suppose it would be fun to see 20K purple fans in Honolulu for our first visit there.

Also, can you imagine how LOL this will be if the remaining Big 12 schools stay together, add a couple more of the largest G5 schools, and somehow stay a "Power 5"?!?!  LOL.  Even if every rolls their eyes every time they say, it would be so amazing.

This is all pretty weird to me still. Like most, I don't really care and don't care near as much as last time, but still. Like, how much money do these schools need? I've had MU guys text me today laughing at the quotes from their coach. My reply back to them is always, great job guys, congrats on the money you don't personally get. Also, maybe you will win more than 7 games this year, but still never have a shot at the playoff!!!! Its so weird.

If this happens the term power 5 won't mean anything at all. Which who cares anyway, it wasn't a thing before 2011 anyway.

The rest of the conferences won't just stand there with their dicks in their hands.

BTW this could blow up the playoff proposal. The Big 10, Pac 12, and the Rose Bowl already needed to work out how this was going to work and it was reported that this wasn't going smoothly.

I can enjoy longer weekends for road games while I get in some solid hiking, fishing, and golfing in some of the most beautiful areas in the U.S.  PAC or MWC I don't care.  Sounds like great outdoor fun.  Utah is the big red flag though...I function on cocktails most weekends.

I think we should form a new conference with the Big 12 holdovers, minus Baylor, and the best programs in the MWC and AAC. Aim to have 10-12 schools total.

Take the 7 central leftovers (later WVU), join the PAC w/ BYU. Re-Brand as something like the Southwestern Conference or some crap?

East - ISU, KU, KSU, OSU, BU, TCU, TTU, CU, UofU, BYU
West - UofA, ASU, USC, UCLA, Stanford, Cal, UO, OSU, WSU, WU

I think ku to Big 10 is going to happen.  Not because the big 10 wants them, they will hold their nose and take them because they can't let the SEC get the pub

Ku to the big 10 would be fantastic. Football starts doormat and basketball turns into just another good team but they get absolutely hosed every time they play at Iowa/Ohio st/um/MSU etc

Fools. Why do you think we hired a big 10 administrator as AD?

FWIW, I'd prefer everyone just stay the eff put. Actually, I'd prefer Mizzou, Nub, and Colorado back and he religious schools out (don't really give a flip about aTm tho).

Yeah, the best part about forming our own conference would be having the ability to not let TCU and Baylor in.

To be fair to TCU, they're not "weird religious" like Baylor. They're just happy to be here. And lucky.
