Can the Big 12 actually survive without Nebraska, Colorado, Texas A&M, and Missouri?
Very very interesting....
Though the focus of the Big 12 now shifts toward equality -- the Big 12's Board of Directors voted 8-0 last October to a formal grant of TV rights to the conference for at least the next six years -- it's pretty much a given that the future stability of the Big 12 will still run through Austin, T...
Yes, of course OU and UT are enough.
I said many times in 2010 (and now) that as long as OU and UT stay together it is/was a secure conference. I do not believe, despite Chip Brown's Iraqi Minster of Information act, that either school was ever REALLY looking around.
I think TO knew this but was sick of UT. I was against leaving the Big 12 and wish we never left.
Keep in mind that this is a brand new contract that extends up until 2025. The Big Ten contract comes under review in just a couple years. This new contracts will get about $20 Million per team in the Big 12; CURRENTLY the Big Ten TV contracts get around $22 Million per team. (note the Pac 12 contract we saw completed last summer I believe will gain each Pac 12 member around $21 Million) When the Big Ten ups their contract in a few years it will be significantly more than any of these numbers. The bidding for college athletic programming hasn't yet caught up to it's worth; but its getting there quickly.
