It was much different. We didn't like not being the top dog and Texas having so much authority. Now we are in a league where several other schools get the Texas treatment and we are treated like KSU or ISU, on our best day. We were so pissed when Texas got an extra second at the end of the Big 12 Title game (the same extra second we got in 93 Orange Bowl), but now every week is like the infamous aTm game in 2010. I don't see any way to deny that our men's sports programs would be better off in the Big 12. All three of our coaches have Big 8/12 roots, we are respected in the area, we can recruit there, our traditional rivals are there, on and on. But the move has been made and it isn't about sports, it about $$, so this is what we have to look forward to for the foreseeable future....and how was the different in the Big 12 with Texas in charge? We were saying the same thing back then, kind of the reason we left. Wash, rinse, repeat!
