Everyone can stop feeling sorry for us "Left-Behinds". Look at it as a new start and a chance to separate ourselves from schools and conferences with their heads in the clouds. Guess what...on cool fall Saturdays their will be a game still and we will be in it as well as ISU, KSU, UK, and Baylor. We may get to see some new faces and play in a conference where everyone is appreciated. Where no school thinks they have to be the big guy and control everything. I am thinking Big East. Annual Conference playoffs in venues such as St Louis and the Meadowlands, etc. You get the picture. How about that coveted NY TV market. The Big East is squarely in the middle. How about the ungodly basketball conference that we old Big XII castawyas would create by bringing our schools to the Big East party? Can you imagine? Maybe a conference tourney at Madison Square Garden. Oops..I can hear the Big 10 or whatever it is now drooling. And by the way, not a bad football conference either. Weren't they recently 5-0 in bowl play? I am feeling really good about not getting picked by the kings. Mizzou and fellow schools.....please dont sit at the Big Ten/ PAC Ten tables waiting for a bone like starving dogs. It's sickening. Above all, stick together.
