Pretty obvious that this is his intent.  He's doing everything he can to prevent them from leaving, flinging crap against the wall and hoping something will stick.  It's... remarkable... to witness.

 

Maybe they can fire him?

In hindsight, this whole GOR business was as terrible of a decision as we all thought it was back when it was signed. 

I disagree.  It appears it will be every bit as toothless and meaningless as the exit penalties.  It's certainly not stopping your school or mine from doing exactly what we want to do, at this point.

And in a year, after it's all been negotiated and settled, I think we'll find we're paying substantially less than the B12 will be asking for initially.

What fucking school would want to join a conference led by Bowlsby after today?  

A better question might be if you were hiring, what position would you hire him for at this point? How far down the org chart do you have to go before you get to a position you'd trust him with?

He's negotiating his severance. He's done

Even if this is true and you have proof of it, you use this as leverage on the parties involved, not use it to pick a very public cat fight that won’t stop Texas and OU leaving, and now may have scuttled the possibility of ever getting an agreeable media deal and potentially jeopardized the landing spots of 3 to 5 members…

All the bitchmade responses from all parties feeling wronged certainly solidifies that behind the back secrecy was ABSOFUCKINLUTELY the right way to handle all this.

 

Hey Rooskies, we're building a bomb to beat the Nazis and Japs (no disrespect to the Orientals).  You want in???

I wonder if ESPN was trying to sweet a new AAC deal by pushing the other 3-5 schools that way since the SEC Networks would be the real prize?

That's what Dennis Dodd says, but he loves to troll the Big 12.  I can't see any going to the AAC until the league totally implodes.  If there are 3 to 5 left, they raid the G5.

Well those remaining better hope Fox pays up because ESPN is no longer going to.

Let's assume, for the moment, that the 8 stay together, Bowlsby settles down from his from his rager, and some calmer heads start talking things out for the conference in the coming days about possibly inviting other schools in.

What fucking school would want to join a conference led by Bowlsby after today?  

He's at retirement age.  I figured he would retire with the GOR.  He's 69.

He's trying to make sure everyone gets full payout.  That's the point of this.

ESPN/SEC/UT/OU and anyone else needs to make a deal before going.  Otherwise, ESPN is putting themselves at risk by giving the other conferences numbers.

Its about the Benjamins, not about which door everyone leave by.

They're already entitled to the full payout. This doesn't do anything to improve the remaining teams' position with respect to full payout from Texas and OU.

Ask SouthAustin's mom.

I hear there's a line, though.

 

While there is a line, she learned real well on how to get a dual lane through with a quickness during the time she was spreading like hot butter outside the Chick-fil-a on Braker.

Who the heck wants to go to Nashville for anything?  Seriously?

 

NOLA, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville....which one is not like the others....

 

I’ll drive the 6 hours to Nashville just to hit Monell’s. Worth. Every. Bite.

7 schools leave.  Contract over.  3 schools don't get exit fees or an ESPN contract.

Inducing someone to exercise their legal right to terminate a contract isn’t tortious interference.  

Sir, I see you are not familiar with bird law. Also, it's pretty clear you cannot have a hummingbird as a pet.
