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.
