    15yrs in south tejas... tu is right up their with lewisville

    alums are, for my money, the biggest collection of d-bags i've ever seen. normally not a big fan of stereotypes but i swear, there is an impossibly high % of em for it to be a statistical anomaly.

    someone leaves a conference to join them... enjoy.

    I don't believe anything that self-serving bunch at UT says. The idea that ND goes to the Big XII is laughable. Neither UT nor ND would ever agree to be second fiddle to the other. Also, the entire ND culture would have to change for them to consider the Big XII.

    I'm not saying it couldn't happen, but I would be shocked.

    Just remember this. Orangebloods is an unofficial mouth piece of U of Tex athletics. Whenever the Teasips wants information or disinformation out there but doesn't want to be officially connected to it, they pass the info to Orangebloods for further dissemination.

    Yep - an over priced piece of real estate that has very little impact upon the overall game ;-)

I know money talks but these schools aren't in the same straits that WVU was. The SEC is only conference that passes the sniff test IMO for FSU and Clemson and they arent offering at present. The chances of an ACC that retains FSU and Clemsom becoming irrelevant are next to zero so their incentive to move is overstated.

    With that said it seems to me if the powers would advocate an 8 team playoff- with reasonable access to all Div-1, a lot of this instability will go away.

    Do you think so or hope so (or both)?

    I could see getting TAMU to get into the state of TX, and then needing Missouri to balance it out. As much as I don't want to see us get left out, I have a hard time viewing VA or NC, or any of the schools within, as being as valuable.

    No, ND would be the Banker.
