08:54 AM ET 05.05 | Bob Bowlsby was introduced as the new commissioner of the Big 12 on Friday, leaving a very comfortable job in Palo Alto as Stanford's athletic director to take over a league that was considered on the brink of implosion the last two offseasons.On whether the University of Texas essentially runs the Big 12: "I guess I would just suggest that you do a little homework on me. I haven't been very good at being a puppet over the years."

Interesting that the thread saying UTx won't be allowed to run things features a pic of the UTx HC doing the hook'em.


And you're right, DC. Mack looks like he's on the combo Weiss/Mangino training regimen. Yikes.

Dodds and Castiglone have been on the same page for years. The same could be said for many of the other ADs in the conference.

Tom Osborne and his "puppet' spin have left the conference. The Aggies and their "puppet' spin have left the conference. The media needs to let it go.

Yep...two arch rivals like UTx/OU put their rivalry aside and really seem to see eye to eye a lot.

So, Texas had him say that to fool the other folks, still a Horn puppet. Funny that Okie wanted to stay here and always take the sloppy seconds.

Zero U doesn't take a back seat to anyone! I just don't like them cuz they come football player poaching south of the Red River!

And they steal land!

Other than Kansas (and possibly Baylor/Iowa State) the other schools usually fill their stadiums without the couch burners even when they play schools like New Mexico!

I'll cut DC some slack. It's an offseason weekend, speed is not really necessary IMO.
