    One of the conferences, BigLeast or Acc, has a 27-month waiting time before a team is "released" from the conference. Can't remember which one, tho.

    I'm waiting to see the Baylor fans patting themselves on the back for finally winning their 15 year fight to get TCU into the Big 12. :rolling_eyes:

    LMAO...UTerus threw their weight around, got the LHN, chased off NU, CU and aTm, probably Mizzery too, and nearly killing their second conference. After beating their chests aout how any conference would want them (B10, P12, ACC) they find no one really does. Now they have to cobble together the remnants of the B12-2-1-1 with some of the old SWC/MWC/WAC retreads and declare victory. Who's next UTEP?:lol:

    Eh, only reason they would pay a cent is to make it less of a media **** show. Same reason CU and the nubs got a way reduced buyout.

    Supposedly, the schools/teams from north of the Red River weren't in favor of adding any more schools/teams from the state of tejass. Doesn't look like they had enough pull, and lost again.

    Rice, Houston and SMU must be waiting by the phone.

    Texas is getting the band back together! Should the NCAA just apppoint a special investigator now?

    This should be a day to celebrate for CU fans...I think this is going to make it harder for OU to want to leave the Big 12...some years they will have two trips to DFW and the same goes for UT. Every other B12 team gets one DFW game every other year.

    Allegedly there´s no interest in any other school based in the state of Texas.

    This is what I'm hearing from the boomer fans. At first, I thought it was just more tehass hate, but there may be more to it.

    Tulane? That's comedy. Maybe that is the B12-2-1-1's idea of "Getting a foothold in SEC country". Maybe they can try to get UAB next.

    So how much fanny did TCU have to kiss to get an invite?
