I'm glad we are alive and still get to play big boy football but eff me this conference is complete trash from a likability standpoint. I can't even get to a 4th team that is remotely worth liking.

when you factor in everything - town, football upside, hoops upside, brand and fanbase - this is what i come up with:

TIER I - oklahoma state, arizona, kansas state, kansas

TIER II - baylor, tcu, texas tech, utah

TIER III - arizona state, west virginia, colorado

TIER IV - byu, houston, cincinnati

WASHINGTON ST OF MIDWEST TIER - iowa state

FICTIONAL SCHOOL TIER - ucf

If you can get to 3, you're doing pretty good, honestly.

Pretty much.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I don’t like the UCF add. It’s crap.

I like UCF because they have a huge enrollment and have had success without money. They have a ceiling somewhere around FSU, and we aren't getting FSU. Got to look at upside in our position.

Can we build around them? Should we?

I like the idea of games in Orlando. Direct flights from Hobby and stay on Space Coast. Fly into MCO after work on Thursday. Beach on Friday. Watch game. Head back to the beach for a few more days.

Some of you Disney enjoyers can do your thing too.

I've been on the field for games in many stadiums, but only twice have I been on the field when college fans threw crap. Once was Texas Tech, which actually threw crap at K-State media people as they were standing outside of the tunnel waiting to go in for the postgame stuff - that was after a Tech win.

The other was a K-State beatdown of Colorado and the Buffs fans threw crap at their own effing players. I literally saw one CU player get hit in the head with a hot dog and another - who thankfully was wearing a helmet - got pelted with a battery.

CU = THE WORST.

I now demand to know asap how football scheduling and conference championship games will work. They have been planning these acquisitions for months and have plenty of time to think this through.

Maybe I'm just not gE enough and I'm doing it wrong but don't you want your conference to be filled with a bunch of teams you don't like? Everyone is putting KU, Colorado, and teams we don't play at the top of these supposed likeability ratings. I'm guessing after KU beats us a couple of times they won't be so likeable. It's amazing the difference in Iowa State's likeability before and after November 24, 2018.

The way all fans have gotten during realignment makes it hard to mock rednecks for sec-sec-sec.

We don't get to form a gang with the teams in our conference and go fight the other conferences/gangs.

It’s ironic that people are making fun of them bc they probably have the lowest acceptance rate of any school in the big 12 by a wide margin

That's the thing, they have their stupid ass SEC SEC crap but could you imagine a SEC fan base outside of Vanderbilt talking about the likeability of the other bubbas? They routinely commit crimes against each other in the name of sports fandom. Their conference is the most fun because they're fanatical about how much they hate each other.

I thought that was a joke, but damn - they're down around 35% acceptance. Definitely the lowest in the league - and by a wide margin. And, not too far behind Florida and Florida State.
