Good article. Sounds to me like it's going to be gun-to-the-head before Tejas approves expansion.I particularly liked this phrasing...

This after schools such as USF had to shut up and take it Thursday when Boren said of possible expansion schools: "We want to make sure they're not dilutive." The condescension was blood curdling. This from the same David Boren who pushed conference expansion right up until Texas brought its boot heel down.

This scourge of the Power Five is making The Group of Dilutives dangle. What choice do USF and the others have but to hold out hope? You're either in a Power Five or you're increasingly powerless. You've got revenue streams or you're a dry river bed. You're in or you're out.

 I'm replacing 'altruistic' with 'dilutive' as my new favorite word.  :FIREdevil:

Clearly the fruit baskets USF sent to the Big 12 meetings had no effect.

That didn't really happen. What did happen, Friday, was that the never-say-normal Big 12 resurrected its conference championship game, passed on trying a TV network … and announced it's in no rush to expand. School presidents couldn't decide on those last two items at first, so the University of Longhorn Network made their minds up for them.

And a lot of air went out a lot of balloons.

USF can forget about conference hopping. Maybe forever.

Truth be told, it never had a chance.

There's already a discussion on this in the Rumors thread. You are sabotaging our march to 1000 there...... Plus, the ****head doesn't deserve his own thread.
