Assuming Grier comes back next year I feel we have a legit shot at the B12 title. No Mayfield, no Rudolph, should be wide open. Plus Tennessee and NC state should be solid OOC winnable games.

That would be nice, the Big 12 needs Texas to get the mojo back.

Don't let the cat out, but TCU is very beatable.

I mean our skill guys on defense are pretty good, Askew Henry and White and a few young corners are pretty good.

Our problem on D is the linebackers, they are always in the wrong position, and our receivers are not very good either.

All Im saying is we make the playoff next year with Will Grier going down as a legend.

I actually expect our offense to keep improving now that we know Sims can be a deep threat as well. No surprises in the next few weeks then go into TCU and win.

I don't like that Mayfield kid at all, super asshole. From the way he left Texas Tech, to the way the acted beating us last year, then the way he ran from the cops and acted like a victim and cried, and now this.

One nice thing to think about is the day he gets a shot playing QB in the NFL and there are a "LOT" of ex Ohio State guys playing defense in the league. Definitely looking forward to that.

I'm not a fan of Kiffin either, he always looks way in over his head.

Holgs on T.J. Simmons(Bama transfer WR) and Jovani Haskins(Miami TE transfer)

"They looks different than the other guys out there. I wish we could have them now, they would play right away."

Remember we have Grier for another year, future looking solid.

I'm still getting over Smothers leaving. Not sure what happens with him, he looked like Tavon in his highlight vids.

Speaking of Fullbacks, we still got Wellman this year too right?

I feel like we actually have a decent counter. Their weak spot is D line, and we should be able to run the ball. Plus young QB against White and Henry.

Our golden age feels closer than ever. I mean we are pulling receivers away from Alabama now?

I actually think the Big 12 is in a very good position with TV contracts expiring in 2024. I know everyone sees this as the event that will trigger the implosion of the Big 12, but I disagree for one main reason.

We are about to go through a major change in the way sports are watched. Fox, Disney, and CBS will no longer hold an oligopoly on football rights. New online competitors such as Apple TV, Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon are entering the market, and very soon, we will be streaming football on the internet, rather than sticking to traditional tv viewing schedules.

This means that when our tv contracts end in 2024, there will be more competitors bidding for our rights. This puts the Big XII in a much better position, then say the ACC, which is locked in their contracts until the 2030s.

Seems like perfect timing for our contracts to expire, as these new providers will be in full swing by then.

There are probably 100 different ways of looking at this, but to be concerned about contracts expiring 7+ years from now, knowing the game is about to change, just doesn't seem right. I'm betting on WVU coming out just fine.



How is that de-centralization of content supply working out for the music industry? Not well.

$71 per capita in 2000 to $26 today. While I don't deny that access and distribution won't be more widespread I don't think that this adds to the pot of money. I actually see it going the other way.

While you have to remember that while it would seem that more people bidding on the same product would help revenue the problem is that with all of the competition no one will want to spend much money on any individual item as for every potential watcher there will be hundreds of thousands of potential shows to watch.

The hardcore fan of a team will definitely watch. The people you NEED to get for a good amount of money is the casual observer. The casual observer now will watch, say, Texas/Oklahoma or Oklahoma State/WVU or WVU/Pitt because they have a history and they want something to watch. But the fact is when I have potentially thousands of channels to watch something on another channel will trump the football game.

I am not as optimistic about this future from the standpoint of being GOOD for the athletic department. I agree with the "WVU will be fine" argument. I just think all college football will suffer.


Well let's not blame it on decentralization. It's been a pretty good thing for me anyway.
