I was getting my Masters in Ft. Worth when UT/Arlington dropped its program. The Star-Telegram had some good articles on it, if I recall. BTW, my oldest was born at Arlington Community Hospital in March 1985 (Mrs. Oldschool's OB/GYN was there) - good times driving the 20-30 minutes to the hospital with a woman in labor...

There is a serious problem in this country that isn't being addressed by ANYONE - there are no telethons or twitter hashtags or foundations addressing this issue. That, of course, is the problem of SSI (no, not what gets taken out of your paycheck): Severe Sarcasm Impairment!
It's time, brothers and sisters, to rise up against this scourge! Send your $$$$ to DJ Byrnes c/o Eleven Warriors! (We don't know what DJ will do with the money - new cat condo? Lifetime vouchers for Waffle House? 10' high statue of Warren G. Harding in his living room?)

Fun fact: when OU played the Buckeyes in 1977, the largest crowd to ever watch a game filled the 'Shoe (88,000 - I was a student then, though relegated to the north end zone almost at field level. It was a great game, BTW, even though von Schamman kicked a field goal to win it for the Sooners, 29-28).
I think we do well in this game, very well... just a gut feeling.

I don't think SI is hiring her for in-depth investigative journalism - if you've followed her over the time Eli played, you probably noticed she has a great gift for communication. She is articulate, funny, blunt, irreverent (as noted in the article) and will probably provide a unique perspective of the League because she did "...(birth) an NFL player."        I look forward to her new gigs at ESPN and SI.

BYU, CSU, Houston & Boise State wouldn't be bad additions to the Big XII, actually. And they make more sense, geographically, than current member West Virginia, or potential member Cincinnati.
Speaking of which (just thinking - typing - in an off-the-cuff way):
Would UC bring any value to the B1G? They would definitely be an improvement over Purdue in football (no, not saying Purdue should be ousted); and, in basketball, would probably compete very well in the conference. Academically, UC is fairly decent - and have some well respected degree programs in engineering and allied health sciences. Again, just some random musings on a Tuesday evening.

GTH, you might enjoy reading a book by Benjamin Blech & Roy Doliner, "The Sistine Secrets: Michelangelo's Forbidden Messages in the Heart of the Vatican."
In a nutshell, the authors detail (at least in their eyes) how Michelangelo gave a Marcus Hall salute to the popes by including certain symbols in his artwork. It was an easy read.
