  1. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/06/t-magazine/the-timeless-appeal-of-tommie-smith.html?action=click&module=Well&pgtype=Homepage&section=T Magazine interesting explication and analysis of the meaning of Tommie Smith and John Carlos' protest at the 1968 Mexico City olympics. I think the Mountain West athletic departments have the most direct connections to the political tumult of the 1960s based on SJSU's Speed City and Wyoming's Black 14.
  2. The Big Ten has a better payout than the SEC and probably will continue to do so because there are so many more large media markets in the Big Ten footprint versus the SEC. Right now the SEC is acting to close the gap by adding Texas and Oklahoma. A revived Border War has monetary value even if the conventional wisdom is to bemoan the state of Kansas University football; Mizzou v Illinois would also be a huge game because St Louis is only a lit bit further than Chicago from Urbana Champaign Also, the university is concerned about staying in the AAU and joining the Big Ten probably
  3. https://www.ky3.com/2021/07/27/missouri-ad-jim-sterk-step-down-after-5-years-position/ Announced July 27 2021 regarding former SDSU AD Jim Sterk, age 65, Missouri has announced that there is mutual agreement he will step down when a successor is hired . Interesting wording. I'm curious if one of the questions in the interview is whether Missouri should consider joining the Big Ten. It isn't shocking if that question is asked, given the ongoing struggles Mizzou has had regarding ticket sales (average of ~50,000 with capacity of 60,000 in a conference averaging Also, Kansas Cit
  4. Does this link? Please note Warbow has a current thread with the same title so don't bump it because it is confusing
  5. I posted in June 2017 in a thread titled 'Pac 16 2020' that I thought Texas and Oklahoma go the SEC. It is hilarious how many other things are wrong but close in this speculative post from years ago. Anyone have an earlier post regarding Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC? Obviously I'm not the only one to wildly speculate on this board.
  6. I agree that midwest administrations need to respond. I did some googling and found Mizzou fan sentiment is against Texas and curious about a B1G invite https://www.secrant.com/rant/mizzou-sports/so-tejas-wants-to-join-the-sec/97349961/
  7. Missouri to the b1G seems like the only reason for the b1G to pull the trigger. No other action will move the needle enough for the B1G to take Kansas as 16. EDIT https://www.secrant.com/rant/mizzou-sports/so-tejas-wants-to-join-the-sec/97349961/ There is Mizzou fan sentiment against Texas and in favor of B1G offer but they don't want to get their hopes up again.
  8. https://csnbbs.com/thread-925501.html Love this AAC forum thread title " This UT/OU move proves that AAC was playing checkers and the MW was playing chess "
  9. The article you link in turn links to a podcast from February 202 when Larry Scott was still the commissioner and no successor to the Pac 12 has been announced. USC may still be concerned about revenue but reasons 1, 2, 3 and 5 in OP all indicate the Big 12 imploding helps both USC and the Pac 12 Current Pac 12 commissioner George Kliavkoff was interviewed on this topic by Jon Wilner yesterday https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-husky-football/pac-12-commissioner-george-kliavkoff-talks-realignment-if-the-big-12-folds-cfp-expansion-media-strategy-and-more/ “I consider the
  10. Speculation about the Pac 12 having any interest in Kansas or Iowa State is only reasonable on the basis that they are peer institutions to Pac 12 schools. However that doesn't mean that they would make a good Pac 12 member for the following reasons: 1) Regardless of the academic prowess of KU or Iowa State, the SEC and the B1G having more revenue just isn't a problem that administrators in the Pac 12 have respond to like administrators in the Central time zone do because that has basically been the case over the past five years and there is no great outrage among Pac 12 fan bases (even
  11. Check out this thread on the AAC board titled "This UT/OU move proves that AAC was playing checkers and the MW was playing chess" https://www.csnbbs.com/thread-925501.html
  12. I agree but the problem is having an odd number of members. If Arizona State joins the Big 12, you guys are totally in.
