KC businesses are the real losers here. I feel truly sorry for the lack of dollars that won't be spent on KU v MU games.
That said, let's escalate this BCS arms race. The BIG 12(-4+1) needs to BE 12 again, if not 16. Stability is in numbers. The BIG East had it right only they backed the wrong sport.
And, parenthetically, I hope Mizzery becomes the whipping boy of the SEC.

Am I the only one that remembers all the sucky Mangino years?
2002 2-10 0-8, 2003 6-7 3-5, 2004 4-7 2-6, 2005 7-5 3-5, 2006 6-6 3-5, 2007 12-1 7-1,2008 8-5 4-4, 2009 5-7 1-7
Not really the stuff of legendary head coaches. We have that one miracle season when the football scheduling gods smiled on us. That was it. There was no consistency. Zero.
So by Mangino math, Gill should get at least 6 years! Come on guys. At least give him HALF the chance Mangino had.

Not true. You are woefully uninformed. Gotta love all the ignorant purple-heads posting nonsense.

As always, top notch from Tait.
Matt, How likely is it that the B1G will also expand? They've been pretty quiet with all this mayhem going on around them.
Then again, the ACC was quiet and then BOOM, they shot the Archduke Ferdinand.

Don't know what that means. B1G is the best option hands down. It's always been that way. We should have just accepted their offer in 1993 and we wouldn't be in this mess.

C'mon B1G! Throw us a lifeline!

Well, to that point, a lot of well educated people out there don't know or care where Arizona state is. So what's your point? Is it simply that there are well educated people who don't know a lot about college athletics? Hate to burst your bubble, but that happens all over the country. I lived in sf and now Chicago. Lots of people don't know or care about KU. So what? I've met many people who do.
It's irrelevant because the people who are in charge of realignment know all about the schools in play. They know their academics, their tv markets, their alumni bases, and how much their athletic departments gross.
So rest assured that +40 year olds on the west coast won't be asked to weigh in if they've ever heard or KU.

I like it too. Stay with UT for texas recruiting and get the east coast for BB recruiting.
Plus we get to play Turg and Roy.

ESPN is reactionary. Rely on Matt and Chip Brown at orangebloods.com for up to the minute info.
