The ultimate betrayal of Texaggy

 

Once you saw the shift in real-time where the Looch and the others started posting positively about the move and how it was actually a good thing this was clear. They got their marching orders and were told to shut the fuck up about it.

Bowlsby has very few bullets in his gun, levers to pull, etc, here so he’s doing whatever he can to preserve some semblance of his conference (and job).  At this point, I don’t believe that OU and Texas are in breach of their contract, so UT and OU are not parties to the current BIGXII BS.  But this is just the beginning of a huge shift.  Buckle up, dis gon be gud.

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

My understanding is that pretty much nobody who is deucing from the Big 12 right now has any intention of paying the buyout without litigation a la A&M and Mizzou back in 2011--notwithstanding all this talk of "2025". If ESPN is encouraging schools to follow suit then there'd be a problem. 

But yeah, something tells me that ESPN is basically texting Big 12 programs saying "u up?", in which case Bowlsby can get fucked.

I think it was the opposite.   Aggy got a talking to Friday night/ Saturday morning, and looch got his marching orders to support it. .

What's Bowlsby settlement end game?  Merging the B12 with the AAC?

He could be commissioner of a pretty damn good basketball conference if he played his cards right. But that's about it, and I have no reason to believe he'll do anything intelligent in this situation.

I was actually lumping Looch, the administration, and the athletic department all together when I said "they". Functionally there is very little separation between TexAgs and the institution.

on behalf of the hundreds, possibly thousands of people checking in with this thread a few times a day, some of you need to stop getting your collective panties in a wad about having to scroll past a reposted video or photo.

that american hustle meme is delightful and should be stickied to every fucking page.

 

it's the equivalent to the Swagcopter Down meme a few years ago, magnificent
