Not gonna happen if it's up to her. UTEP admin needs to take this one by the horns and figure out the best approach. Sadly I think it's too late since we already missed the boat, but we'll see. UTEP needs money too.So the statement from C-USA commish MacLeod says "... best position our member institutions ..." Best position for what, I ask? I hope this means that she sees the writing on the wall in big, bold letters that spell out "C-USA is a shit conference and needs to be dissolved so that its member institutions can find homes in conferences that will position them to truly build their athletic programs because they will play against true rivals and this will put butts in seats and sell tons of popcorn and soda and beer and bring in additional funding from donors and TV contracts that enables the building of better facilities and it all begins to feed off of itself in a never-ending cycle of prosperity and success."
Yeah, that what I hope she means by "best position our member institutions."

I've seen talk about these rumors before, but I've never seen any firm evidence that they're true. (The fact that Kappy talks about the rumors is the best evidence I've ever seen, but still, he calls them rumors. Nothing confirmed.)Kappy has a good article up on krod about the current realignment hubbub and UTEPs interests. He says that our new president is interested in getting UTEP relocated conference wise and that Natalicio is rumored to have nixed a previous opportunity to move to the MWC.
Yes, TT would never leave for greener pastures and leave their conference mates behind. Didn't they already do that?"“It is difficult to understand how an Oklahoma institution of higher education would follow the University of Texas to the detriment of the State of Oklahoma," Shrum wrote. "Nevertheless, we are turning our eyes to the future and looking at what is best for Oklahoma State University. Over the last few days, I have received countless phone calls, texts, and emails from high-ranking officials and members of the Cowboy family showing their support for OSU as we navigate the road ahead. Regardless of what comes next, OSU is dedicated to the State of Oklahoma..."- Oklahoma State University President Dr. Kayse Shrum
“Like many across our state and within the footprint of our league, I’ve been extremely disappointed by the actions and intentions of our friends in Austin and Norman. From day one of the Big 12 Conference’s existence, Texas Tech has been a proud and trustworthy partner,-Texas Tech University Chancellor Tedd L. Mitchell
MW commish has stated TT asked about joining the MW in 2010 according to the guru's tweet above?
Negotiations will begin on actual exit dates and $$$. I would think they will be playing in the SEC no later than fall of 2023. It'll cost them though.The dominoes have begun to fall.
Seems rather pointless to wait another 4 years for this to happen, but I know TV contracts have a lot to do with that.
I seriously doubt it will be until 2025, but we will see. Big “8” will be broke off a ton of cash, but not sure what the damage will be in the long run.Negotiations will begin on actual exit dates and $$$. I would think they will be playing in the SEC no later than fall of 2023. It'll cost them though.
The Big 12 (8) athletic directors meet tomorrow but we are left to speculate if it's for negotiating the big 2 departure or possibly to recommend who to invite to the presidents.
Surrrrrrre it will. Hope you don’t really believe thatLet UT and OU buy their way out. The cost would be steep. Either way the B12 will be around until 2025. All the other members might as well capitalize to the fullest extent.
This is not the same A&M who was in the Big 12. Same goes for Texas (once solid program, now forever stuck in mediocrity). A&M will win the national title in 2021.How about those Aggies? Leaked this entire deal, then claimed they were going to block it, then whined a lot, and after all that voted to approve. Very impressive
