    Perryman Group Economic Report on Big 12

    This reads like it was built for the consumption of lawyers negotiating the buyout. As negative as possible.

    Naz headed overseas

    Should make a really good living overseas, as he's been very close to NBA level, but just never solidified there.

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    Though Texas does play a great paper tiger role in the impression of your schedule difficulty.

    Friday OT #1 - Rubbing Pennies

    I remember going to the store and buying one small bag of Buddig's meat for dinner (that was the whole dinner).

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    I know it is a cast as some kind of a grand competition, but it's really not. If the Big Ten schools can make great money without sticking their necks out too far, that might just be okay for them. They'll still be competitive and get their share of shots at it, even if the SEC takes home more...

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    I struggle to see the Big Ten wanting to extend that far west, or the PAC 12 teams wanting to join up with a conference that far east. The Big Ten is already strong. The PAC 12 has a nice conference that simply needs to expand to strengthen it's standing and broaden its reach. Picking up four...

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    I'm really having issues seeing the workability of an 18 or 20 team conference. Just seems to water down the desirable match ups each year (even with the Big Ten at 14 teams, it seems like you have way too many years where good teams don't end up playing each other).

    Big 12 Send Cease and Desist to ESPN

    Perhaps against the "rules", but not against the law.

    IMO, it really depends on who and how many the Big Ten would take, but there are quite a few strong programs that would be conceivably left, and I think the anchors, while initially weak, would develop over the next few years.

    Big 12 Send Cease and Desist to ESPN

    A conference can, a media company with contracts with both entities cannot orchestrate such a maneuver.

    Friday OT #2 - Signs, Signs. Everywhere Are Signs

    I have refined my assessment abilities in this regard to a fine art.

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    I agree on the PAC 12. If they don't do something now, they will have no good options to expand at all. I'm not sure the Big 10 needs Pacific exposure, but if they did, the remainder of the Big 12 and Pac 12 getting together is an attractive option (3rd behind a Big Ten invite and an invite to...

    What Should the Remaining Big 12 Schools Do?

    Negotiate your deals, make them effective in 2025, and play it out

    Yes, but I was asserting that as the worst case scenario
