From what I had heard, Texas would support Houston, but only if Houston would agree to not block a branch campus/medical center in Houston for UT.
Their arrogance and entitlement mean nothing if you don't give into it. I don't see Ohio State or Michigan giving special treatment to Texas.
I've got a shirt idea:
Several of my in-laws work at OSU medical center including one in the ER and I was told that the night of the Mirror Lake Jump was one of the worst of the year. The one in the ER prophesied year after year that the tradition sadly wouldn't end until someone died.
Without his strong
hand webbed-foot guiding it, the ecosystem suffered catastrophic collapse.
red scarletcoats will do anything to defeat Chilliam Wallace.
As long as Campus Pollyeyes is still there . . .
As for the Big XII GoR, it doesn't expire for 8 years, according to what I read.
I think you are right, but many think that once you get down to 3 or 4 years or less, you can then start negotiating down to a reasonable buyout. If it lasts the whole 8 years, that's fine, but Delaney made his media deal shorter so that it would come up again around the same time the other conferences deals and GORs were expiring. They could land someone from the B12 and have a year or two before they officially start playing in the conference.
Yes. Every major conference has one except the SEC.
And Texas isn't going anywhere without the Longhorn network.
You could bring Texas and their network, but not give them a share of any BTN revenue until their contract with ESPN expires. Once that happens roll them into the BTN.
I think we get Oklahoma and Texas in the next round of expansion. Neither want to extend the GOR for the B12 and if they don't sign those, they will be gone at the end of the current deal. If that comes to pass, Nebby gets its rivalry back with Oklahoma and with Texas . . . they may not like them, but with games being played in Texas again, they can go recruit there much more easily.
Nice, little known fact: Hulk herniated a disc in his back when he slammed Andre that still gives him trouble to this day.

"But you've got to at least jump and help me," Weber said.
Like Hulk Hogan body slamming Andre the Giant, he wasn't getting him up without some help.
If he makes the playoffs it practically guarantees a power 5 offer for Houston.
That would be cool. In my expansion dreams I hope that Oklahoma and Texas join the B1G in the next few years. We'd probably need to take one or two more schools to entice them to come. Kansas is garbage in football but they have a good market, AAU, and a blue blood in Bball. That leaves the 4th team . . . No one other than those three are really good choices. Perhaps you get Missouri to rejoin its old rivals as there is no GOR in the SEC, but not sure they would come. I doubt the B1G would be sold on a non-power 5 Houston, but if they join the B12 and have several years of success, increasing spending on facilities and upgrading academics, they might be a good option for team 4. Certainly more upside than Texas Tech, Baylor, and TCU.
Perhaps when Oregon fires Brady Hoke, his old boss can hire him at Toys 'R' Us. Hoke just might be the cashier needed to resurrect the #brand from the buyout junkyard of history.
Please, please, please come true! The thought of seeing Hoke standing next to Jabba the Hut in the Star Wars section on Black Friday would give me the Merriest of Christmases!
I wish Rutgers had brought the cannon . . . not that it would have gotten any use. They could have fired it every time Rutgers completed a pass and they still would have only fired it 3 times.
If I were Herman I would be looking at Texas or USC at the end of the season first, then LSU third. He has so much experience in Texas that makes that area attractive (LSU is close and can pluck from Texas as well), but many forget that Herman grew up in California. He may want to head back there and USC is one of the best jobs in the country. When Carroll had things rolling UCLA and Cal and to a lesser degree, Stanford, got the scraps he didn't want. With someone like Herman at the reigns, I feel USC would experience another renaissance.
Yeah, Louisiana is like Ohio in that the vast majority of in-state talent looks at the home team first and only then if not offered or some other issue (PT, wrong system, etc.) they go somewhere else. With the right coach, LSU can be a monster.
I saw it . . . well played.
I would say he's staying in the pocket longer this season and looking to throw before taking off.
I agree and thank goodness for that! We have arguably the most talented group of receivers ever at OSU. I am glad that he is saving the wear and tear on his body by throwing more.
Cameron Johnston could have gotten off his ass and contributed yesterday.
You could get some of those Joker pants.
