re: Hey A&M, I have a Big 12 question - twk
UT and A&M were actively seeking a new conference home, and that search didn't include anyone else. When Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock (former Tech basketball player and Baylor law grad) got wind of what was happening, he used his leverage to force UT and A&M to take Baylor and Tech along with them. UH, TCU,...

re: Roll Tide! Bama is Latest King in SEC Facilities Arms Race - twk
Certainly going to be a nice upgrade for Bama. One question--what's the deal with having field turf in foul territory? LSU does this, too (and MSU?). Sure, it may be a little harder to keep it looking perfect around the plate, but I'd rather see some imperfect grass in this area rather than see t...

re: SECe Schools Excluding UGA, Would You Support Auburn to the East - twk
Not enough information to answer the question. Several variable I would want to know before giving an opinion (I'm assuming that Missouri goes West): 1. Are we maintaining an 8 game schedule? 2. Are we keeping permanent cross division rivals? 3. If yes to 2, who are the cross divisional opp...

re: Finebaum: Arky was 3rd Choice for SEC Expansion - twk
Schiller must be suffering from the early stages of dementia. Arkansas, Texas, and A&M all agreed that the SWC was a dead man walking and that they wanted out, but Texas wanted to go to the Pac-10, while A&M and Arkansas wanted the SEC. Arkansas didn't have any political impediments, so A&M and T...

re: Realignment? The talks are starting again - twk
[quote]The OU President Boren is pissed. Just last night he made his demands clear in interview. Go to 12 teams, convert LHN into b12 network, and have b12 championship game. He said all 3 must happen right away, and then hinted that OU will be gone otherwise. [/quote] He can throw tantrums a...

re: Realignment? The talks are starting again - twk
[quote]The WAC did the pod set-up back in the 90s. You pair up different pods each year and call them "divisions". It's a loophole in the rule.[/quote] This. In a pod system, the divisions just change every year. The SEC doesn't want to go to a pod system because the transient nature of the div...

re: Based on Sankey comment B1G and SEC appear to be united - twk
I read an article somewhere that goes into more detail on the procedural aspects of the vote, but, IIRC, I believe that the vote this week requires a 2/3 super majority or something like that, but that the threshold might be lower at a later vote. So, I'm not sure that failing this week would kill t...

re: Do you think TCU's offense plus an upgrade of talent would do well against SEC? - twk
[quote]If you had a QB maybe[/quote] I would take five above averaging performing offensive linemen, and keep our current QBs, over any single QB you could name. Our offensive line was the worst I've ever seen--no QB can look good playing behind that kind of hot garbage. Meachum is supposed to b...

re: Why Hasn't Bob Stoops Been Able to Keep Good to Great Defenses? - twk
OU relies on Texas high school recruits big time, and Texas high school football just doesn't play defense worth a damn any more. There are so many Texas kids that you can still sign a talented defense relying primarily on Texas talent IF YOU GET WHO YOU WANT, but, OU hasn't been getting who they wa...

[quote]No to sub channels, but I still don't understand why they refuse to use alternate channels to air live sporting events outside of football. Why have everything online only when you have two channels you aren't using? What's the reasoning for this?[/quote]It may look to you like they have two...

re: Who else misses Texas vs. A&M on Thanksgiving Day? - twk
If you are actually going to the game, and don't live within a couple of hours of College Station, Black Friday is the worst possible day out of Thanksgiving weekend to play a game, particularly early in the day--you still miss Thanksgiving with the family, and have just a short weekend left post ga...

re: Question for NON LSU fans, what would you think if they hired Jimbo? - twk
I don't see Jimbo being huge improvement over Les. The fact is that Saban is the best in the business, and nobody's going to knock him off the top of the mountain as long as he doesn't hang on too long. Once he does leave the scene, some lucky coach will get a chance to be the new king of the hill, ...

[quote]Yep. Bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy. My favorite part of all this is some Aggies talking out of both sides of their mouth in regards to the clause.

re: Starkville is the worst P5 college town in America - twk
Oxford is what every subscriber of Southern Living thinks a small town should be. Personally, I find it a little plastic and contrived. Starkville seems more like you typical southern small town. Both of them are miles better than Lubbuttocks....

re: 1 more day until Tennessee beats the great satan from up north - twk
You share an east-west border with Missouri. The compass heading when one flies from Knoxville to Columbia is 297 (closest to West/Northwest on the points of the compass). I don't think [b]YOU[/b] get to refer to them as being "up north."...

re: Aggie fans - twk
QB got injured against State and was never the same (don't know if it was all physical, but that initial injury was the turning point). Defense is better, but not good enough to carry a sputtering offense. I personally think Murray isn't going to cut it in the SEC against the best defenses--he could...

re: Ags, how does the Kyle/Kyler battle go for the rest of the season/into 2016? - twk
[quote]Obviously Kyle is your starter, but Spav does like to get Kyler in the game for a few plays. However, I don't see Kyler playing second fiddle for too long, especially if he doesn't beat out Kyle next year. IMO, Allen a much better qb than he showed vs Bama, and should be able to operate/r...
