Originally posted by darvlayPete Carrol knew what he was leaving and Kiffin should have known what he was getting into. But as much as I wish there was a punishement for cheating, less distinguished programs recover from greater transgressions. For example, Baylor basketball in the recent past had one player kill another and then the program tried to cover it up but they had a top notch team this year.
Pete Carroll must have known this, or at the very least known that there were some serious reprimands coming, when he took the Seahawks job. His legacy is now shot completely to hell.
I also looks good on that scumbag Lane Kiffin who has got everything he's deserved with his new job.
Originally posted by EladarNebraska is a good fit to the Big Ten with their stingy defense and all. As for Texas, come on over to the Big Ten!! There is no doubt they will have to pick a conference to flee to seeing that the Big 12 is falling apart. If they join the SEC, however, I doubt they will have the success they have had in the past. For that reason alone I suggest they not go there unless they want to play a second fiddle to Florida, LSU, and Alabama.
The Big 10 would like nothing more than to pick up Nebbish and the Domers.
I'd love to see Texas and OU end up in the SEC, but I doubt that will happen. Very interesting days indeed. No matter what, I don't think Texas will have as much say in what happens in the conference they join as compared to the power they had in the Big XII.
Originally posted by EladarWhether you want to admit it or not...Texas has more top caliber programs than OU. Texas is the top rated school, overall, in the Big 12, or whatever you want to call it.
Texas will not go to the Big 10, no matter how tempting it would be to join a conference where it would stand such a good chance of winning year in and year out.
Nebraska is a great fit for the Big 10 because it doesn't have much offense and is mostly white. I think there might be some connection there, mostly white and no offense. Maybe?
It just make ...[text shortened]... c-16 whatever you want to call it, it should have to wait for Texas. That's just embarassing.
Originally posted by EladarOh, you are speaking of football only. I am speaking of all sports. That is why Texas is so powerful now. Football, baseball, basketball, track, swimming, golf and tennis are all powerful from the men's side. The women are strong in basketball, softball, volleyball, track, swimming, golf and tennis.
[b]OU needs the Texas rivalry.
I don't think either school really wants to give it up. In any case, it seems to me that Texas and OU played a few games during the old SWC days.
OU admin is just giving Texas a hand job. Sad but true.
On the bright side, OU will be the most dominant team during the Big XII era with by far the most Conference Titles. But I suppose to Texas fans conference titles don't mean anything.[/b]
