Big 12 Talk

Big 12 needs to get tough on its members | KUsports.com
It will be interesting to see if Oklahoma's demands are met. The Pac12 might have taken a few chips off the table with their announcement last night.

In time of conference realignment madness, KU silence golden | KUsports.com
A different take on the silence surrounding Kansas. I'd tend to agree considering our position in all of this. Not sure what we can gain from running around like T. Boone talking to anyone that will listen.

HEY HEY!!! Something that makes sense....

Boone Pickens: Big 12 isn't dead; Texas A&M ‘sobering up' | NewsOK.com
I'm beginning to just wish this guy would go away.

More and more I get the feeling that we're going to be looking at leagues going to 14 and maybe not 16 in certain scenario's. This means we could be staring at the "Big 12/Big East" merger. Time to look for silver linings.

Conference realignment: Mountain West confirms talks with Iowa State |  DesMoinesRegister.com
First time the Mountain West has entered the conversation. Although there was word that TCU has been in contact with the conference they recently left...awkward.

Jim and Roy will be like the two old men on the front porch complaining about EVERYTHING!

HEY HEY!! Guess who's crying to the camera again.

'Beyond the Phog' excerpt: Keith Langford on Kris Humphries, Roy Williams | KUsports.com
Pretty interesting excerpt talking about Roy in a VERY positive light. For all the grief we give him now I do think it's important to remember that time and how much he did for Kansas. If you think about it, we've had three incredible coaches over the last 30 or so years. HOF'ers.
