Today, in sweating the small stuff

Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby, a tower of rectitude, demanded a public apology from a Texas player.  Why?  Because he acted like a fan.

Hager was told that Kansas put up 40 points and 524 yards on the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners while the Longhorns were playing, to which Hager quipped: “Hey, OU has no defense.”

He followed that up by pointing at a clock and saying: “And what time is it? It’s 11:12, and OU still sucks.”

First off, let me just say as a Georgia fan that a Texas player making a clock reference like that is both ironic and hilarious.  But I digress.

Where I really want to go is wishing that Bowlsby had been half as huffy about the Baylor situation as he’s been about some kid poking a little fun at a rival.  Of course, there’s no money involved with Hager, so I guess it’s easier for Big Bob.

The Big 12 still sucks, in other words.

    Projection are if Bama wins the SECCG, UGA gets to play OU for round 2 in New Orleans

    It’s 10:00 am and Bob Bowllsby still sucks.

    Just what is Bowlsby’s recourse if the kid refuses? I’m sure there would be no media shitstorm if he suspends him. I swear, there must be some requirement to be oblivious to what bad/good PR means for someone to become an AD or commissioner.
