Great information. The fee for this site is well worth it...it far offsets the medical costs I would have incurred trying to keep track of this on baylorfans.com.
Someone told me this morning that Ian and Starr said, in a Bear Foundation meeting either earlier this week or end of last week, that TCU would not get an invite. I said I highly doubt that either one would make such a statement in a public forum, and that if they had it likely would have leaked out by now. But they swore to me it was said.....but I am calling BS on that.
I go back and forth on TCU. They make a lot of sense, but then everytime I read their website, they talk down to us just like A&M did, I think I am good with it either way.
Anyway....back to a question on page 1..... I actually do care who the SEC has as interest for #14 past Mizzou. If the Big 12 makes the move for BYU, Louisville, and Cinci first, and Mizzou stays in Big 12 as we expect they will, couldn't the SEC quickly turn back to WVU? That would then change our answer. If we get WVU and then TCU, who is left for the SEC that does not have to pay a giant exit fee? I think their intentions are still relevant.
I asked Ian about TCU face to face a few weeks back and he said Texas does not want to be in a conference with TCU
Ian was asked by Smoaky on radio-aired interview if it was true about UT having a beef with TCU and not wanting them in. Ian answered that it was true although he was unsure why UT felt that way.
Maybe things have changed but that's what Ian said last week.
Couple of things:
Why is there this notion that the new ACC exit fees (which are around $25m, as I understand it) are a barrier to the SEC getting FSU, VT, whomever? Aggy is paying $31m to leave the Big 12 for the SEC.
Obviously, I've been vocal in opposition to expansion beyond 12. The only merit I can see to expanding beyond 12, thereby vaporizing the Big East, is that ND's hand is forced. Unfortunately, this seems a VERY low percentage play as I suspect ND would end up ACC or Big 10 before Big 12. Any strategy, and I repeat ANY strategy, has huge merit if it gets us ND. But, I'm not holding my breath.
