    Kind of interesting

    Big 12 allowed them to do whatever they wanted. So glad we are out of that conference.

    Makes me even more proud to be a member of the PAC 12. This conference has some balls.

    Yup. Deloss bluffed and Scott called it pretty damn nicely. Good luck with your mystical TV deal... oh, and traveling to Manhattan and Ames. Every year. Your fan base is gonna love you.

    Thank you Larry Scott for just saying no to Texas arrogance. What complete assholes.

    think about what must have been said in that conference room when Texas dropped that bomb. Lots of old white dudes swearing, I'm sure. :lol:

    If anyone is still questioning leaving the big 12, you need to have your head examined.

    I imagine it went something like this:

    Dodds: "Well see here, we're Texas. And we're gonna need some stuff from y'all in order to be part of your little group out west"
    Scott: "What kind of "stuff" are we talking about?"
    Dodds: "Well, for starters, we're gonna need our own TV network. And we're gonna have to be makin more money than anybody else in this here group."
    Scott: "It was nice meeting you, Mr. Dodds. Good day."
    Dodds: "Wait just a gosh darn second there sonny, I'm not done yet"
    Scott: "yes. you are".

    I'm so happy we bailed when we did. The CFB gods are smiling on Colorado.

    It's fantastic that Scott said no thanks to UT. I'm also glad CU got out. They saw what Arkansas saw back in the 80's. UT is a poison and will only play by their rules. Damned good thing Scott called them. It'd be a scary scenario to see the Big 12 South moving to the PAC. The conference is better off in the long run without UT... and I'm glad CU had enough of a sack to leave, unlike UT's little ******* OU and A&M.
