    I don’t have a problem with either of the local stations covering something other than the implosion of the Big 12. After listening for half an hour, you have pretty well heard everything there is to hear.

    If anything, this is further evidence of why print journalism (on paper or online) is not going away. It doesn’t matter who BROKE the story first. It matters where I FOUND the story first.

    I can turn on the radio and maybe hear about the Big 12 or maybe hear about the Royals or maybe hear about the NBA finals.

    I can go to KansasCity.com, choose the topic I want and find about it RIGHT now.

    What I don’t understand is why 610 and 810 are not counter-programming each other better. I tuned in to 810 yesterday to find out what was going on just as they decided to go the cooking segment. I switched over to 610 (as I’m sure a lot of people did)but they missed a golden opportunity to capture those listeners because Nick (dramatic pause) Wright was talking about the Washington Nationals.

    K-State will no longer get to kick Texas’ ass every year. Sad.

    I’m a fan of Petro and 810 — and I was shocked that he let 610 run circles around the flagship on one of the biggest college sports stories in a generation. Utterly embarrassing for 810.

    How will KK top yesterday’s performance? It was truly Oscar-worthy. Can’t wait to hear what he comes up with today.

    I’d rather listen to Petro talk about baseball than anything involving Fescoe.

    Never fear Tiger faithful. Mizzou will be fine.

    Cliffy, I have been waiting for this all day. This should be awe-inspiring. And you’re right: Mizzou will be fine.

    What do we KNOW to be true at 2:22 pm on Thursday.

    1. Nebraska Board of Regents announced they have NOT yet received an invite to join the Big 10 but they will discuss the possibility tomorrow.
    2. Missouri Board of Curators have NOT received an invite to join the Big 10 but did discuss all the scenarios today.
    3. Colorado has been invited and has joined the Pac 10.

    That is all we know at this exact moment. Everything else is simply speculation and misinformation.

    Steve says after listening to a half hour you pretty much have heard everything.

    While a few days ago i was sick of all this Big 12 disbanding talk now its relevant. Here is what I’ve heard new and hear is what i wan to hear but no one has said.

    I heard today that Texas might actually be a better fit for the Big Ten and they after romancing them.

    What I don’t get is all the gloom and doom about KU. Someone…obviously more intelligent then me. Explain why KU can’t become Notre Dame and just be an independent who make a lot of money? Just as Notre Dame has an independent football contract why can’t the recent NCAA basketball champions negotiate an independent contract? Why do they have to be part of a conference? Please explain. Obviously it has worked for years for Notre Dame.

    Rick, the reason KU can’t be an Indy is the same reason Notre Dame realized a long time ago that THEY can’t be an indy in anything but football. There aren’t enough teams who would be willing to play the kind of team KU would (ideally) be without a league affiliation. And even if KU could play an indy basketball schedule, they’d still need a league to play softball, tennis, etc. I don’t think KU would be able to persuade a league “Hey, let us play football with you and all our women’s sports, but let us keep our biggest cash cow for ourselves.” Even if a league would do like the Big East did with Notre Dame and allow that sort of provisional membership with the hope they’d eventually join as a full member, KU would still have a hard time scheduling during the time everyone else is playing in their league.

    Also, KU now leads the country in league championships for basketball. If they played as an independent, they’d surely lose that to Kentucky within the next five years. No way KU allows that to happen voluntarily.

    Watch for my updates. I have my Iphone and will
    be offering complete coverage from my
    office of the days activities as they happen.
    All those other fools have been wrong.
    They followed me on these stories.
    Now for the most accurate information
    come to this site. I will be offering my
    inside source information as it becomes
    available.
    And again ….JOJO was right!
    I will be out from 9am-Noon with my first
    report here thereafter.
    JOJO WAS RIGHT. WHEN YOU NEED TO KNOW…YOU
    NEED TO GO…TO JOJO!

    If you want the real info keep reading my
    posts. I have been right on the key subjects
    long before these amatuers were on the story.
    I will be putting up constant updates throughout
    the day as events unfold.
    I will be out til about 3pm today but will
    be back with my sources and my evaluations of
    the breaking news as it happens and as I
    hear from my people throughout the area.
    Look for this: The Big 10 felt burned when they
    last offered ND an invitation. They will only
    offer an invitation to those shools who apply
    or tell them they would accept an offer if
    given it. Thats the problem right now.
    BREAKING: mY sources in columbia sent me ifo
    that there are some curators/officials within
    the university of missouri that are not soo keen
    on moving to the big 10. While everyone..including myself have expressed what
    a great deal it would be…appartently some
    people in columbia and jefferson city are
    having serious doubts. KC officials are now
    lobbying against the mov e for financial reasons.
    The heads of the sports commissions from kc
    and st. louis have made mention of hte ecommomic
    impact this move has.
    Also…some people in Jefferson City are also
    reluctant to make this move hastily without
    examining all the details.
    It is also being rumored that some within the
    athletic department believe that this move is
    not so smart from their vantage point.
    But the really big news is that MU and their
    people are now qctively scouting for expansion
    of the stadium area. For those of you MU
    fans you kmnonw the school was previously
    faced with a massive alumnoi prote3st when they
    considered seating in the “hill”. If they
    move…they want to increase seating and the
    hill would be gone…very interesting!
    Also…one major big 10 school is against
    adding mu…AS HARD AS IT IS TO BELIEVE…THAT
    IS _________________…ONE THE SMALLER BUT MORE
    PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOLS IN THE CONFERNCE.
    I AM CHECKING WITH MY SOURCES AND WILL OFFER
    MORE DETAILS AS THEY HAPPEN.

    FOLKS…i SAID THIS IN A PREVIOUS POST…
    THAT THIS IS ALL FUN TO DISCUSS AND
    TALK ABOUT. BUT ALL 3 SCHOOLS..KU/KSTATE AND
    MU WILL SURVIVE.
    ALL 3 SCHOOLS WILL CONTINUE TO DO WHAT THEY
    DO…this is all about the mighty dollar…
    nothing more.
    KU is a fine institution but they failed to
    heed my opinions nd now they face some tough
    times.
    Had the figured out the guy they might hav
    e avoided these very rough waters.
    All schools will be fine..they will continue
    to be good schools…regardless of what
    happens….
    And i trulyh hope that KU and its fans have
    learned that being humble is a very classy
    trait.
    Thanks..i will return.

    Nick Wright always makes the listener feel they are wasting their time listening to him because apparently all the important stuff happens at some point deeper into his show.

    Turn on Nick’s show at 2:15…hear Nick say: “You will want to be listening at 2:35 for my opinion on this Big 12 mess.”

    Turn on Nick’s show at 3:24…hear Nick say: “Big news out of Arrowhead today, find out exactly what I’m talking about at 3:50.”

    Turn on Nick’s show at 4:19…hear Nick say: “Some of you may have heard KU could be looking for a conference home after all this re-alignment business shakes out. Well, you’ll want to tune in at 4:40 to hear why I think KU will be ok after the dust settles.”

    What’d I miss?
