    Damn how long did the conference last almost 15 yrs? Should the rest go back to the Big 8 or go where the money is;

    If all of college football ended tomorrow my life wouldn't change one bit. I suspect yours wouldn't either.

    Agreed, to only live one's life for a sport is rediculous. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on that matter in case others may feel that way though. Guess it was kinda silly of me to post a sports story on a political message board but hey I saw a sports section and thought what the hell maybe someone else had an opinion on it.

    Rule Number 1: No conference gets to call itself "Big" anything

    Rule Numbr 2: You don't get to call yorself Pacific or Atlantic unless all the schools are on the Pacific or Atlantic

    Rule Number 3: All the new super conferences have to agree to a playoff format that leads to a national championship

    Hey, we love talking sports here, that's why we have a sports section!

    And thanks for the heads up about Nebraska joining the Big 10, we needed another one, since there was 11 (after they added Penn State) but I think they can't call it the 'Big 10' anymore, eh?

    {Indiana University Grad here btw-our football team sucks :( }

    Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri and Iowa State would in turn probably join WAC or Mountain West.

    As though that would be of any consolation.

    Nebraska had a pretty good season last year, should be a great addition to the Big 10 conf. From what I had heard on the radio this morning, sounds like the Big 12 has always been a house of cards and all that it would take to knock it over would be one of the big players(Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, etc.) to abandon it for another conference. Looks like Neb. decided it was time.

    No one is talking about the strongest conference (the SEC)

    they wouldn't take any of the weak sisters out of the big 12 but they might take Texas.

    Texas A&M has already talked to the SEC but to keep the rivalry there isn't anyway Texas and Texas A&M would split. That wouldn't be a bad deal at all adding those two to the SEC. And they already have the SEC network.

    I can't believe the Big 12 is just going to fold like that. Especially while the perpetually weak and lame Big 10 is going to persist.

    BTW, Big 10 people, Nebraska is going to stomp the shit out of you guys. It was obvious towards the end of last season that the machine was back.

    I'll bet there are some scared Buckeye fans right now. They no longer get the Big 10 handed to them.
