The Dude just put up a blog post saying the Big XII will not expand because Texas and OU don't want to, among a few other members. Said the Big XII is dysfuntional and is run only by one or two voices.

Said the Big XII has at least 6 to 7 schools (names FSU, Miami, Clemson, GT, Louisville and Maryland) would all answer "yes" to a Big XII invitation and would be gone in a heartbeat, but Texas doesn't want to.

Said they are passing up the chance to "kill the ACC". And said that chance may not be there in the future and doesn't understand why they won't do it now.

So by Wednesday he'll be saying FSU is a lock again?

And really, everyone knows that Texas and OU run the Big 12.

The Dude wrote on his blog the first scene of a play on how expansion will playout.

Said Dodd's hired Bowlsby to make friends with Swofford. Once they become comfortable, the Big XII will take FSU which then will bring ND in.

THis after he said Texas doesn't want to expand.

This realignment is about as likely as an old school trade proposal from Pens4Life.

I keep waiting for Dude to say that high-fives are being exchanged in the Big 12's tele-conference room.

A Baylor insider is now saying to look for something to happen 7/20, and it's not the opening of the Darknight Rises.

Said FSU is in, Clemson has until that date to accept (which he thinks they will), and if not, GT will immediately accept. Expansion is happening this Friday according to him.

Didnt the last thread get locked for this crap? Nobody but you cares about every single word some no name blogger/message board poster makes up. NOT ONE thing has come true of all the things you've posted, why waste your time?? Why not just relax and let it go until something of actual substance starts happening or doesnt start happening?

i don't want to drag the PSU thing into here, but just had an overall question about IF a death penalty or something that cause a football program to shut down. The schedules are already made aren't they? That week that they were to have a game, does the other team just have a bye? Is it a forfeit? does the team have an opportunity to reschedule?

It's fun the same way that people who bring up rumors from Eklund are fun. Mainly, it's sad for 90% of the people who realize the level of crap being thrown around.

Someone named "NCAA Insider" made a comment that I think meets NAN's believability threshold- that is, it's on the internet, so it must be true.
