Start with the fact that you’ve got two schools leaving at season’s end, both of which are facing demands that each fork over millions of dollars for the privilege of fleeing a conference that less than a week ago was on death’s door and now has its remaining members proclaiming that it’s stronger than ever.
Then, you’ve got five schools ready to give 10-year commitments that probably aren’t worth the blood they’re written with, because none of the givers have any better options to pursue anyway.
And one of the school’s which purportedly had a better option and didn’t take it (and in not doing so, likely did more to ensure the survival of the Big XII than any other school) is getting raked over the coals by its fan base for not leaving.
Fun times in 2010. When are Big XII Media Days scheduled?
