Baylor regent lobs 'corn shuckers' blast at Nebraska

You have to love open record laws, which allows for, among other things, emails sent by public officials who they think are private but ultimately end up all over the Internet, readily available for public consumption.

The latest official bitten by this way-awesome law is Buddy “Bud” Jones, a Baylor regent and prominent lobbyist in the state.

The emails, obtained by the Dallas Morning News, center on the rumored interest on the part of the Pac-10 in three other Texas schools — Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.  Jones writes that “we cannot let other schools in Texas… leave the Big XII (Jones cyber-yelling for emphasis ahead) WITHOUT BAYLOR BEING INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE.”

(Why Jones didn’t end that particular sentence with at least three exclamation points for additional emphasis is beyond me.  ‘Net novice.)

He also hit the caps lock when talking about “TEXAS BASED TEAMS” and “PACKAGE DEAL!” in the same email obtained by the News that basically stated Baylor needs to be included with every other Big 12 school that hails from Texas.

Additionally, he addressed the Nebraska loyalty issue that some say could be key in keeping the Big 12 intact.  And he did it like an adult, refraining from using any words that would denigrate either a member institution or an entire fan base.

“It’s hard enough get the home teams to stick tight. But harder still to influence a bunch of corn shuckers.”

Jones then dropped trou, hopped up on the nearest Xerox machine, made several photocopies of his bare ass and ordered his secretary to send copies to high-ranking state officials and school in Nebraska with the following inscription written in Blue Sharpie on his right cheek: “Love, Your Daddy”*.

With each passing day, and with each revelation, the Big 12 is looking less and less like a power conference and more and more like a bunch of six-year-old girls fighting over a Happy Meal toy.

(* – It’s true because I wrote it and it’s now on the Internet and, like the open record laws, would be way awesome if it went down that way.)

    No Ann Richards = Baylor in the MWC. Not that I particularly disliked Ann Richards apart from the Baylor issue.

    Too bad Baylor and Nebraska don’t play this year.

    Does Buddy realize Baylor has like 2 Big XII wins total?!
    Who the heck is he to throw crap at Nebraska for getting out of the Texas heavy Big XII and going to an even footing in the Big Ten. Funny how Nebraska even THINKING about leaving and suddenly the Big XII is done?!
    I think Buddy should figure out how to get Baylor GOOD at football. Pac 10 is getting shafted having to take them.

    Seeking some kind of relevancy other than religious compounds???????

    If Nebraska leaves the Big 12 folds. Texas is just pissed off they aren’t wearing the pants anymore…
    But they undoubtedly aren’t upset to have Beebe in their pants…his reputation of sucking horribly is finally paying dividends for someone…

    The Baylor regent is chirping smack about the “corn shuckers” of Nebraska?
    This is the same “doormat” Baylor that hasn’t won jack spit in forever. The teams Baylor has fielded forever can’t even play football up to the standards of a MAC school. Baylor would be better off disbanding their football program or moving to Div III – no one would notice either change.
    TCU should be included with the Texas teams in the PAC 10 expansion package – definitely NOT Baylor.
    This regent should STFU when the grown folks/programs are talking realignment. Other than being the above mentioned consistent doormat for the Big 12, Baylor and whatever their regent thinks are both non-factors in CFB.

    As a Baylor alumna, I am completely embarrassed by Mr. Jones’ comment. I truly believe his opinion of the University of Nebraska is not shared by the Baylor family, as it is not my view. To resort to name calling is classless. Shame on you, “Bud”.

    Isn’t “Shuckers” a naughty word (or too close) for Bapitsts?
    Bud appears to be a classy person, let alone an example for a regent.
    Texas, there’s nothing like it. A polluted desert that has a pretty high opinion of itself. Sometimes the rest of US (including the legal citizens) wish we never heard of the Alamo.

    Baylor is pissed at someone else because their program sucks?….Well, now you went and done it…pissed off the Huskers and they bolted for greener pastures with NO teams from Texas. Those teams from the old scandal ridden SWC will fit nicely in the scandal ridden PAC 10..business as usual and Baylor might be able to join the MVC and get spanked by the likes of Northern Iowa, Illinois State and Missouri State.
