The Mine / $2.00 tea refills...
« Last post by Minermojo on July 22, 2016, 06:21:51 PM »
My wife and I visited Amore Mio Restaurant on Alameda which has good Italian food. We asked for our check and you can imagine my surprise to learn that they charge for each glass of tea. The glass looks like an 8 ouncer and with it full of ice you can imagine how much tea was in them. I didn't even drink 3 cups but about 2 and a half. For those 2 and a half I was charged $6.00. I was flabbergasted and P'sed off. No one told us that the refills weren't free to boot.

The only place that we have been charged extra for refills of coffee and tea is Toronto, Canada and believe me El Paso is NOT Toronto Canada as far as it been worthy because of its scenery.


So if you ever find yourself in that restaurant you've been warned. Drink beer instead, it's not filled with ice.

like stated earlier, the 10 million exit fee is no problem for most of those schools and any very good lawyer would find a way to get around that 27 months notice stuff.

None of those schools, with possibly the exception of Colorado St., would have a problem digging up the $10 mill exit fee. They all have large, deep-pocket alumni groups willing to pay that fee at a moment's notice. The 27 months is the difficult aspect of the out clause. Everything I've read, the Big XII wants the joining member schools up and running by the 2017 football season.

Any school invited to join the Big 12 from a G5 conference would accept regardless of exit/entrance fees. It would take all of 5 seconds to say yes. They would beg, borrow or steal the funds if necessary.

UNLESS THEY CAN GIVE 27 MONTHS NOTICE AND PAY A 10  MILLION DOLLAR EXIT FEE!!!! 



In an anonymous ESPN poll of Big 12 coaches, Houston and BYU were the most favored candidates to join via expansion.
Each of the 10 coaches in the Big 12 were asked by the Worldwide Leader to name their two preferred expansion candidates. And apparently they had Cougars on their minds, as both Houston and BYU received five votes apiece to pace the field. That pair was followed up by Cincinnati and Memphis (four votes each), with Colorado State and UCF rounding out the proceedings with solitary votes. All of these teams outside of Colorado State and BYU ply their trade in the AAC. If one of them were to eventually opt to join the Big 12 (or any other conference, for that matter), they would have to provide 27 months' notice and a $10 million exit fee.
