Motivation for CU's Big XII Farewell Tour


As if there wasn't enough riding on this season, the Buffs final (in all likelihood) year in the Big XII, take a look at how the rest of the league, er bush-league, views Colorado football. Both the Tulsa World(http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?articleid=20100801_231_B9_APfile792683)  and The Oklahoman (http://newsok.com/big-12-football-players-answer-the-tough-questions/article/3481540?custom_click=rss&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter) polled the rest of the Big XII to gauge the
attitudes of our conference brethren regarding the Big XII and any special feelings toward the departing programs at Colorado and Nebraska.  Answers were interesting, mostly anonymous and some flattering but in other cases annoying and at times downright disrespectful.  Here's just a few examples:

Q: Do you hold a grudge against Nebraska and Colorado for leaving?
» Yes: 0
» No: 17

“No. If they feel like they’re not Big 12 material, they can leave.” — Antonio Johnson, Baylor linebacker

Q: Who will you miss more, Nebraska or Colorado?
» Nebraska: 14
» Colorado: 3

Q: Which Big 12 team other than your own has the best uniform?

» OSU all-black: 5
» Missouri: 3
» Texas Tech: 2
» Texas: 1
» Iowa State: 1
» Baylor: 1
» Colorado: 1

Don't know about you all but I'm REALLY looking forward to that Baylor game Oct. 16th. Welcome to Boulder mr. johnson.
