Absolutely.

Sometimes I still get kinda baffled how we lost four big programs. (Colorado, notwithstanding....it is at least a state university which the Big 8 had prided itself.) Sorry Baylor/TCU.

The Big XII should have done EVERYTHING that A&M, and especially Nebraska, wanted to keep them in the conference. Crazy how the leadership could not keep them.

The leadership in the Big XII, including the Regents/AD's of the universities, has just been sorry. I don't think there will be any saving the conference over the long haul without adding teams to at least get to twelve.

Without adding teams, OU/Tejas are gone next TV contract cycle.

Didn't Colorado used to be a powerhouse in football? Seems like it wouldn't be hard to recruit players to Boulder.

Late 80's & 90's the Buff's were very good.
