You have no favorite boards.
That's my fear, and I assume they have different sources.
At least it sounds as though it's the B12, and not us that is the hod-up. And at least if we are staying, it sounds as though FSU will be staying with us.
I know this won't happen, but if the B12 won't have us, then we should go steal WVU before July 1. That might be enough to take us out of the eating dust position, to making dust. If Swofford wants to make a splash - there's his chance, not ND. WVU must be po'd that they are not getting an eastern partner, even if it is just for now. I know WVU has no love for ND, and it seems ND is still causing them grief.
It's starting to sound to me like Bowlsby is not going to be the man to lead that conference. Neinas was the man. Too bad he wasn't a longer term option for them.
This is truly not just sour grapes - I've been a strong proponent of a conference move, but I'm not sure now that really want to be in a conference with Texas and ND. That might be a bit much.
They might be doing us a favor - as bad as Swofford is.
It would be a whole lot easier to get screwed by the B12, and/or ND, than to know WE dropped the ball and let FSU and GT get away without us. That will not be pretty.
SURELY, we are not that inept.
They need to go ahead and take all of us while they have the chance. But, I guess we have to get off Swofford's proverbial pot first!
