    Big 12 Realignment thread, 2021 version

    We add something to the Pac 12. 11AM and 230 PM kickoffs. One of the biggest knocks that conference gets is they have too many games that start when half the country is in bed. Expanding east could give them an opportunity to give their teams more exposure when people are paying attention...

    Agree. Assuming we find a decent outcome from this the best thing will be we are finally out of their shadow.

    Even if we added them it wouldn't matter. I can't say what I think about uo and the sips outside of the AV but without them it doesn't matter how many people follow UCF. It sucks but conferences need flagship schools. The AAC has plenty of solid programs and they get $5 million per year from...

    I remember those days too. I don't remember having in my wallet as fun money at 20 though. For minor sports, Ferrari is the exception to the rule. He's really good at what he does, has a legitimate pro (MMA and/or Olympic athlete) career ahead of him and has the personality that will make him...

    Covid-19

    18 months ago my grocery store game was on point and that seemed reasonable. Now, this is a little overkill. Also, Australia has Aldi and I'm an hour away from my nearest one? This is some bs.

    He was good people years ago. But lately he's a joke.

    Covid-19

    It's because we have segments of the population that get tested alot despite their vaccination status. I'm not faulting the logic-high profitable events need to make sure everyone is well when millions are on the line. But the positives have generally been between asymptomatic and the...

    You messed up. You gave a thoughtful and long response to him. Prepare for many short partisan responses that involve question marks. My advice, put him on ignore. He isn't worth your time.

    Today's Democratic Party

    Friendly reminder, for those that don't have this dude blocked, he was cool with viva la revolution 6 months ago. He's a troll and the best thing you can do is ignore him. I won't respond to his multiple attemptst to engage me on this. He will probably quote me multiple times but he isn't...

    Kudos for calling this one. This development is interesting. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/3-fully-vaccinated-texas-delegation-members-test-positive-covid-n1274278?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=news_tab&utm_content=algorithm

    Covid-19

    It's highly unlikely they released it deliberately. Their vaccine is crap compared to our 3 plus the British and Russian vaccines, and if this is something they intended for reasons they are idiots if they didn't have the antidote. The most plausible reason why this happened is their lab...

    I disagree. They will get paid more in a small market where they are the man vs a blue blood where they are just another guy. Plus, they aren't mercenaries. They are getting 20K to stay or 40K to transfer-20 year olds only care about their buddies, getting laid, and beer money. Most of them...

    Football 2022 General Recruiting thread

    Because kids like that. Stuff like that gives them more exposure and improves their brand. Now that they can profit off their brand it's a win win. We spend money giving them stuff they can promote on tic tok and youtube and they get more subscribers which generates advertising money. So we...
