The Onion: "Big 12 Agrees To Annual Bowl Loss Against SEC"

1

From The Onion: IRVING, TX—Keeping with years of tradition of getting blown out in demoralizing defeats to its dominating competitor, the Big 12 Conference confirmed Monday it has agreed to a yearly bowl loss to the Southeastern Conference. "This is a proud day for the Big 12," said interim Big 12 commissioner Chuck Neinas, who acknowledged that the decision, like everything the conference has done in the past year, was forced on them by the SEC's pursuit for ever-increasing revenue and power.

"For the record I am in NO way disgruntled about my overall experience at Mizzou," [Steeples] said in an email. "This was a tough decision that I prayed on constantly. It’s difficult to leave my MU family, teammates, and coaches. It was a blessing that Coach Pinkel gave me the opportunity to play the game I love while pursuing an esteemed degree from the Trulaske (College of Business).

But what Mizzou has done is to update their ‘brand identity’ by standardizing uniform colors and fonts across multi-sports (as other programs have recently done). As far as the unis themselves? I actually like them... But all in all, not too bad, and better than what they’d been wearing for the past several seasons.

Not sure if there are any avid Uni Watch readers among us, but if so, they've now weighed in.

It's a ritual, observed by pilgrims drawn to the same creaky, Depression-era shrines, decade after decade, to eat and drink and sing and agonize as part of a communal mass just deranged enough to invest its emotional energy into a bunch of kids pummeling one another into oblivion. Their devotion is to a sense of community, continuity and tradition, and a sense of student-athletes who regenerate that tradition every fall the way a body regenerates its cells.

We don't know that for sure, and no one does, but ultimately that's what we think will happen: a whole lot of heap-nothing. The part no one's sure about is Mizzou, and shit, we don't know if they're going to work, either. But it could very well work out just fine. This is a league with South Carolina, Vandy, Kentucky, and two Mississippis in the historical ranks. While those schools may be just fine at given points, the overall trend has not been pretty for any of them. Yet we love the cannon fodder because they're "ours," a very flexible term that at one point included established football aliens Georgia Tech. The only thing expansion's messed with is identity, which happens to be a very malleable concept, brand-wise. On the good side, this just adds strength to the SEC-Borg, and on the worst possible downside it adds too much to the menu and turns us into the Hardee's of football leagues. Hardee's is still pretty damn tasty, even if you don't want to admit it. (We see that wrapper on your car seat. You can't hide, Hardee's lovers.)

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Alan White would like to make a small clarification to the Frank Haith story. The former Elon athletic director, realizing his student was in a financial pinch, did in fact give Haith some living space inside the university's gymnasium. It was not, however, a janitor's closet. "It was actually an old ticket booth," White said. And we thought this was an outhouse-to-the-penthouse story.

There have been players in the past who were touted as the ones that would swing the program’s future. Blaine Gabbert was the highly recruited, big-name quarterback that Chase Daniel never was. But it took Bill Callahan getting fired from Nebraska for Gabbert to wind up in Columbia. The Tigers were DGB’s top choice, and it was a choice he made with the world of college football watching. It was an announcement that can reverberate. For the next three seasons (at least), recruits will visit Columbia and ask: "Why should I come to Mizzou?" And the guy who was the best high school football player in the country will be there to answer them.
