Texas, OU take first formal steps to leave Big 12; questions about future of KU's conference grow

Performance on the field (or court) has very little to do with what's going on. It's all about brand, image and revenue.

Kansas ranks 3rd in the Big 12 behind only Texas and Oklahoma in athletic department revenue. In fact, OU is closer to KU in revenue than they are to Texas.

If KU was in the Big 10 today we would be 10th out of 15 schools in overall revenue. The same would be true in the ACC. Is this equal to UT and OU in the SEC? Obviously not, but KU isn't as worthless as many in the national media would have you believe.

Personally I think the Kansas administration should be working around the clock to prepare a university prospectus that does everything humanly possible to impress these other conferences. I think all of the conferences are still in play... the B1G, the ACC, the Pac-12 as well as the SEC.

I know the thought of joining the SEC is cringeworthy to a lot of KU fans... but the conference has shown that they take basketball very seriously. 4 of the 10 highest paid head coaches in MBB are in the SEC. No other conference in America has more than 2 in the top 10.

I agree that culturally the SEC is the last place a school like Kansas wants to end up... but for years people thought the same thing about Texas. Bottom line is that you need to do EVERYTHING in your power to ensure that you secure an invite to one of these 4 conferences.

A Tom Herman question unintentionally motivated Carter Stanley and Jayhawks

What do you mean Herman’s comments were “taken out of context”? They were exactly what Parchment said they were. If we’re wrong can you please explain what you mean?

Texas opened with 4 straight games (Week 1 - 4). They had their bye week September 28th (Week 5). Week 6 they played WVU, Week 7 they played OU, and now Week 8 they play KU.

Week 9 they play TCU, Week 10 is their 2nd bye, Week 11 - 14 finish with KSU, Iowa State, Baylor and Tech.

There is nothing remotely special about the circumstances surrounding UT’s game against KU. Herman saying “We have a game this week?” is the definition of disrespect.

All that being said, if you’re gonna “horns down” you better be damn sure you’re winning the game. OU does it cause they win. Stanley looked like a tool but oh well... these things happen.

KU is still fighting for ineligible forward Silvio De Sousa

Lemme get this straight... You've just had a player on your roster been ruled ineligible for the next two seasons for receiving prohibited cash payments. And you allow said player to sit on your bench during a CBS televised game wearing a Gucci T Shirt and at least one Gucci pendants? Maybe next time leave the $500 T-Shirt and $1,500 necklace at home for the club...

Former Alabama WR Daylon Charlot announces transfer to KU

The KU kick and punt return game has been absolutely brutal the past few seasons. If anything else I think this guy definitely has the ability to change that...
