Not sure why a bunch of stuff chose to break just before Juy 4. It means more stuff piling up in the browser window. The expansiopocolypse stuff, once more, has been a big summer filler. And like so many big summer movies, much more hype than any substance.
The Big 12 expansion stuff ended up a lot like the Green Lantern movie.
Hyped blockbuster, but the story dragged.
Actors that just didn’t have the fit or energy for the movie. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively headlining a summer blockbuster=FSU and Clemson in the Big 12.
Bad storyline with motivations muddled and abandoned. The Big 12 wants back to 12. No, wait, they’re happy at 10 teams. They want FSU and are willing to take Clemson. No wait, it is ND they want. FSU athletic department is broke, not broke, wants to move, internal disagreements, who knows. Clemson coaches pooh-poohing the move while Clemson fans clamor to go… While in the Green Lantern movie, they tossed in and abandoned little storylines and characters so that you didn’t know the reasons for anything culminating with Sinestro abruptly putting on the yellow “fear” ring at the very end of the movie. This after seeing Parallelax defeated by green willpower and hope.
I’ll stop there because I’m heading off on a major digression before even beginning.
