      I hope we go out and get two schools that boost the profile and competition of the Big 12 light (Big 10 Already taken.) I think we let the story roll too long, and now A&M wants to let the SEC come into Texas. If they leave they would be doing the same thing we are doing now staying for the promise of money, and A&M would be leaving because of money. Since we are staying though we should offer Big 12 membership to The University of Houston, because they should have been in since the beginning. And to think I got all excited to be going out to watch the Longhorns play in Stanford, Berkley or Seattle instead of Manhattan, Kansas or Ames, Iowa. No offense to anyone from there. I hope we don't get cheated in the end.

      You stink! Why does everyone think UT has to be in control of everything? Big babies, if you don't get all the money and the TV attention, you threaten you're gonna leave.

      Now why would we not go get TCU and Arkansas and keep it the big 12?

      Lousy move. We remain in a mediocre conference. Why are we afraid of competition? Keep on scheduling LA-Monroe and North Texas and we'll preserve our Big 12 dominance.

      Absolutely no offense to Big 12 schools and in this case, UT. We in the far west are delighted that we remain essentially west coast. We trust that you feel the same. Now, perhaps Colorado will consider rejoining you folks and the Big 12. Cheers!
