10:21 AM ET 09.17 | The news Friday afternoon carried an ominous tone for anyone concerned about the long-term future of the Big 12. Texas' board of regents scheduled a special teleconference at 3 p.m. Monday to discuss and take "appropriate action regarding potential legal issues related to athletic conference membership." The same afternoon, Oklahoma's board of regents will be talking conference alignment issues (and other things) in Claremore, Okla. So could the two marquee football programs in the Big 12 lower the hammer on the conference almost simultaneously?

On some realness: If we are going to have "super conferences" then just get it over with. All this speculation to draw out the inevitable is just becoming an annoyance.

QUOTE(#17):

Along a marginally germane tangent, I-State is now 3-0, including wins over Iowa and Connecticut, two teams that were, I think, ranked at the end of last season. Kind of Ironic that a bunch of the "lower tier" Big XII schools are having what may be their best seasons in quite a while (and prob'ly for quite a while into the future as well) in what may well be the conference's last year.I-State, Bible Aggy, Sheep Molesters, and Okie Lite.

Several Big 12 schools went forward with major projects as soon as the TV contract with Fox was signed earlier this year. I-State is upgrading their facilities including a jumbotron and other significant improvements. If the Big12 and the TV deal falls apart there is no way they could bond these projects out ... so ... of course they'll reserve the right to sue whoever leaves he conference. Meetings in Austin and Norman to discuss "appropriate action regarding potential legal issues" will focus on these very issues. It's business.

Meanwhile the media will spin everything as a giant spit wad throwing contest because that's what journalists do ... sling <rap to get a reaction.
