I threw up in my mouth a little. We (SU) really need to get out of that league. We had a 100-year tradition of independence, I believe we should again and abandon this sinking ship.
BE Commissioner John Marinatto sent a dozen red and white roses to Big 12 Commission Beebe with a card that said "Unity"... bush league and embarrassing.
Sent in an email from the Athletic Dept this morning:

This is not a marketing plug; not associated in any way. But I started checking out additonal places over the past month to follow all the expansion stuff and Bill King on Rivals Radio (Sirius Ch 122, XM Ch 143) is absolutely the best college sports talking head ever. He knows his shit across sports and is also really entertaining. Think of him as the anti-Pat Forde. I'm pretty sure the first thing he does in the morning does not involve checking his hair.
FWIW, I also started checking Burnt Orange Nation and it is one of the funniest blogs I've ever read, Yeah, its TX, but if I had to tailgate with a bunch of TX dudes it would be these guys.
Damn, routine save there
Wait... omg, it went in!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAL! Woohoo, tie game!
Buzzzz buzz buzzzzz, buzz buzzzz, buzzzzzzzz buzz
Buzzzzzz buzzz buzz buzz. Buzzzzz.
You're not really hurt
Rollin 'round like a damn fool
get up already
Okay, I'm fresh out
I implore thee, MGoBoard
Write some damn haiku!

One way to know that David Brandon is awesome? Not only does he say great things, but he does NOT say stupid things. A quote from Minnesota AD Joel Maturi on adjusting schedules to fit in Nebraska since they're already set through 2013.
It may not be easy but that is only because it is difficult and challenging.
