You didn't have to ruin our day too. I should neg rep you! (but I won't)
And I thought I had a rude awakening this morning when my 10 month old loudly decided that 4:15 am was time to start the day. Good thing you weren't trying to eat when you saw that photo and article... hangover already put you too far into the danger zone.
I'ts pretty sad when Big 8 decided to accept 4 schools that needed them worse than the Big 8 needed them
The worst part of this story is that not only the lions share of $$$ is in the south, but they threw out the Big 8 rules the texass schools agreed to abide by.
I still wish it was the Big 8
i wish it was the 8 too; but, some of those "rules" that got thrown out were prop 48 stuff and the Big 8 (while healthy with CU and NU still very strong and OU wasn't going to be down forever and was a killer in hoops for an 8 team conference*)....moving forward probably was going to need the Dallas and Houston media markets to be competitive in the acquisitions and mergers phase of the super-conference era. KC, Omaha, OKC, and a luke-warm Denver market weren't going to cut it on the national stage given today's network lobbying and protecting and marketing interests.
*the Big 8 was sending 5 teams to the Dance fairly often which is the same % as the vaunted 10 the Big East is going to get one of these years (causing the Syracuse humping ESPN wonks to proclaim a national holiday for the greatest sports achievement of all time).
The best thing about the Big 8 is that everyone played everyone else in football, which is the only true way to determine a conference champion. And teams still had the luxury of having 4 non-conference games with a league of that size.
Hey, watch your 'Cuse bashing there!!! :smile2:
The pinnacle for the Big 8 was '88 when 3 teams were in the final 8 and both participants in the national championship game, although it sucks that the gayhawks won it all instead of OU. :sad2:
i wasn't bashing the Cuse i was bashing the Cuse humping. :smile2:
there's a diff.
i was reading that article on my deck this afternoon and i started dozing off...
...i dreamed that tom osborne was actually making sense...
