Like day follows night.

The only thing I’m shocked about is that it took so long for the threats to start (h/t College Football Talk) Seriously, don’t these clowns have some agriculture subsidies to worry about, or something?

    “…television contracts are driving different schools to consider different conferences to attract the money — and those that will be in those big conferences, or super conferences, will get the money and others won’t,” Roberts said.

    Well, good luck with THAT, Kansas congressional delegation. Who’s going to back you up? Orrin Hatch-and who else?

    Notice the Nebraska delegation is already saying they’ll root for Nebraska regardless of the conference it’s in.

    None of the “PAC 16” senators will support Congressional action. None of the Big 10 (+2 or +4) senators will support Congressional action. None of the SEC senators will support Congressional action (because the SEC may also need to poach another coference). None of the Big East senators are going to support Congressional action because the Big East had to slit throats to get to where it is today.

    In the end, Orrin Hatch and the Kansans will jump up and down and yell about anti-trust, and the rest of Congress will just stare at them until they quietly sit down. And we will never hear another threat from Orrin again regarding the BCS, because it will have been shown that he has almost zero political muscle behind him.

    This is it for the Big 12 and Orrin Hatch’s posturing.

    Am I the only person that thinks this guy is panicking unnecessarily? If Nebraska leaves the Big-12 it would be a loss but if the rest of the conference just doesn’t jump ship it’s not the end of the world. Get another team to replace Nebraska and move on. Likely candidate: University of Utah.
