    I waited a day to re-post this since it was on a premium board.

    Kyle Ringo posted the following on the Scout board yesterday:

    "The Big 12 should announce the decision relatively soon. In the early 2000s, some programs around the conference complained that CU-NU and Texas and Texas A&M had an unfair advantage in exposure because their games were locked into the Friday after Thanksgiving by tradition.

    The conference allowed everyone to start playing on that day and could replace the Buffs and Huskers on Friday for the first time this year.

    OU-OSU would be the likely replacement on Friday. I guess it's possible UT and A&M could get moved instead."

    http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=148&f=2898&t=5832039

    *******************

    I can't get out of this conference fast enough.

    The Friday day isn't as special as it used to be, imo. There are way too many teams that play on the day after Turkey day. UT and aTm play on TDay now. OU-OSU is a better matchup, esp for ABC's ratings.

    Our suckitude is the reason for this. We field a somewhat competitive team over the past 5 years and this isn't even talked about.

    I'm kinda okay with this. It's easier to justify making the trip to Lincoln when Thanksgiving doesn't have to be a travel day.

    The loss of national exposure obviously sucks. But then again, when was the last time CU won a nationally televised game, WVU 2008?

    TV audiences love a winner.

    There are only two CU/NU games left anyway. Not concerned.

    Kansas-Missouri has been a solid ratings draw over the last couple of years, could be that is the "North" rivalry that ABC and the Big 12 will showcase.

    Does it really matter? I would rather watch football on Saturday anyway and why so down on the Big 12? It has been a good ride imo.

    Let's not forget there were some pretty average to miserable Husker teams in that mix too. Since the 2001 game, there has not been one game where both team were ranked. Further, since 2004 neither team was ranked higher than 20 at the time. Couple that with a new and somewhat contrived rivalry, we lose exclusivity.

    Since there is no state school in Nebraska, those poor wretches have fabricate a rivalry with an other legitimate state that has both a flagship university and a state school.

    The thought of Nebraska having to cuddle up with Iowa State is mildly amusing. Kansas is the bell of the ball b/c of the boarder war with Mizzou and the in-state rivalry with Granny's purple pussies.

    I agree the CU/NU rivalry is contrived.

    I'm going. I won't be going to Lincoln. So if I'm going to watch the game on tv I figure that I may as well do it in Vegas and catch some CU tournament hoops at the same time.

    by cu - your coach is the one that picked the fight, to bad you could only win a handful of games the last 40 years.

    It's hard to believe, but I'll trust that you have a friend. You send the AB posts to your friend's... what?

    Edit: I just noticed that you randomly use apostrophes. Did you go to Nebra'ska?

    I think everyone could see this coming. Actually, I have been surprised the past few years that this didn't happen sooner. As said above though, with any luck there are only a few more of these games left anyway and then we can schedule them as OOC games if we play again.

    When we move to the Pac12 I would like to see us play an old Big8 school at least once a year, maybe even twice. Fit in CSU, another sure win (hopefully Hawkins is long gone by then), and then two old Big8 schools before the conference games start. Maybe substitute one of the Big8 schools with another big time program from time to time.

    And here you are starting my day off with a laugh. You share mirth and sunshine with your "friends" and you share it with our board; you're like Mother Theresa, but instead of distributing food, medicine and the Word of God, you share laughter.

    Thank you, funny little man. Thank you for your visit. You're a welcome addition to this board.

    i don't see how OU-OSU is a better matchup *necessarily*. OU was unranked last year and OSU was overrated (as evidenced by their getting handled by OU and in their bowl game to close out the season). OU has won 7 in a row and leads the all-time series 81-16-7.

    There really are only 3 options for the second Turkey Day game:
    CU @ Nebraska
    Oklahoma @ Oklahoma State
    Kansas - Missouri @ Arrowhead Stadium

    Nebraska and Oklahoma look to be the only teams above that will be ranked in the pre-season.

    I think there is still a good chance that the Buffs-Fuskers game will remain this season, especially since the game is in Lincoln.
