    thought this was interesting. Probably not much will come of it especially since I thought they were trying to work out an exclusive TV deal with UT. Strange things afoot .

    Plati said he was going to air some Big12 laundry once the exit is official. Looking forward to that. I expect there to be some seriously embarrassing correspondence by UT and its underlings.

    why? Plati will always tell you what makes Dave Plati look most informed. When it's safe to bag on someone else, he'll do it.

    I know a few former students who worked at 1190 and think Plati is an ass who openly deflects people who challenge (with facts) his Minister of Information position.

    This is all 2nd hand, but his handling of the powder blue "200" made me realize that our "great and awesome stat resource Buff" was nothing but a company man.

    Of course he's a company man. The vast majority of us don't have tenure protections in our lines of work.

    does not compute. lawyers come in all flavors - conservative, liberal, middle of the road. but there is one thing we all have in common: We all accept $$$. ESPN has hired lawyers to file this FOIA request; UT has hired lawyers to fight it. ergo, both ESPN and UT lose and the lawyers win. Sheesh, way to kill a joke.

    Plati is a stat monkey. Nothing more, nothing less.
