(first four are dumb)
Please let this happen.
Texas to the ACC! I'm rooting for this. Good luck Longhorns!
+1. Then there is no need to take Okie Lite and Texas Tech. Take OU and KU and call it a day at 14.
That would be nice. Not sure why we would take Tech in that scenario.
I would love this. I wish the Whorns best of luck to make this happen. I'm sure Allbuffs would be happy to start a collection to pay for postage, long distance phone charges, and whatever other miscellaneous charges if it would speed up the invite/acceptance process.
OU is tied to the hip with OSU unfortunately.
Can't give up their "precious". That is the ONLY reason. The rest are just fluff
Makes sense to me.
I was thinking last night that the ACC could pull off a hell of a coup if they ponied up enough $$$$$ and promises.
What if the ACC swooped in and took UT, OU, OSU and TCU?
They'd save their own conference, block in the Pac-12 from further expansion, and make the SEC look to lower-end schools for expansion past 14.
Fine by me. The Pac 12 will be far stronger. The coup would just eventually turn into another corpse of a conference, especially since the ACC will be giving massive concessions to the whorns from day one.
Sounds perfect to me. They go to a weak conference, destroy it, and then go independent. The same things that destroyed the Big12 will already be prevalent in the ACC if they let UT in. This is like letting the soviet union into your country for "military training." Allsome. At the very least, it gives us time.
This would be the perfect scenario. The big 12 dies. There are new football teams for me to watch in Austin every year. Great basketball schedule. And no Texas in the PAC!
I really hope this happens.
I thought you were gonna be working the lifts at Crested Butte.
Go East Texass and take you little (lap) dog (Tech) too...
Yeah, me too. Get your priorities straight, boy.
Once I saw they pay $6 to do that, and rent costs $1000 a month up there - I realized that wasn't an option.
Many other jobs for someone who actually shows up to work up there. Servers can make 30k+ in a winter and most restaurants give employees lift tickets. Many ways to make mountain living work. Don't be a *****, do it.
I believe Wilner when he says there is no Tech to Pac 12 without Texas. I think Pac would take OU & OSU and hold for a bit unless they could sway KU and MU
I must say it is rather hilarious to see the way UT fans vacillate to the opinion that whatever the Dodds/Chip talking points of the day are is really the best situation for them. All of a sudden the PAC is way too far away, there isn't enough fan support and passion etc...same thing happened when they claimed that the B1G was really the best option for them when all that Purple Book Cat stuff leaked from the Northwestern board.
Also there are all these posts on how they trust where ever they end up because its all "part of Dodds master plan" and he's thinking 3 or 4 moves ahead of everyone else. There are a few lonely voices in the wilderness expressing the opinion that it looks like things may have spiraled out of their control for a bit and that the LHN could end up being an albatross, but they usually get shouted down as not getting the revolutionary, change the world, can't live without it precious LHN.
I wonder how they are going to feel when their "regional" pod consists of Baylor, Kansas, and Kansas State?
Dont question the master plan. Deloss knows all - and Texas is predestined to bethe best thing ever in the world ever forever.
Whatever plan keeps UT the hell out of the Pac is just fine by me.
I saw that you'd posted in this thread, so I clicked on it, wondering if you'd changed your mind about UT to The Pac. Nope.
I'm a man of conviction.
The key here is that we get a 4-team pod in the central time zone that includes a national program. That's what drives the money train for Pac-12 expansion.
I disagree that we need to expand into the Central time zone at all. But even if we do, there's no reason to include UT in that mix. OU and KU are both national programs, albeit in different sports.
ut to the acc...
perfect. that will definitely make them 3-0 in killing conferences. by the time they are done bending the acc over, it will make what they did to the remaining teams in the former big 12 look consensual.
if ou is smart, they'll go west in a hurry. i love the idea of just extending the invite to ou and then maybe grabbing ku. both ou and ku have to decide if they want to continue to have the millstone semi-retarded little brothers weigh them down or if they want to move up and on.
... should be interesting...
like a tape worm has a unique food supply.
Where do I send my donation to make this happen. Let that disease of a program in Austin go East! Want.
