Reports now say Texas is leaning toward keeping the Big 12 Minus Two alive.
Texas' Rivals site, Orangebloods.com, reports that the conference's richest school is working on a new TV deal with the other nine universities that would salvage the conference and make Texas even richer (Texas' cut in the new deal would be between $20 million and $25 million as well as $3-$5 million if the university starts its own network).
As for the rest of the conference, schools like Texas A&M and Oklahoma would pull around $20 million, while the rest would pocket between $14 million and $17 million. It's less than Texas but about double what they're getting now.
As for Texas A&M and the SEC, at least one regent says he wants the
Big 12 Minus Two to survive. Texas A&M regent Gene Stallings said
the Aggies to stay put and the conference's survival would "tickle
me to death."
As for the Pac-10 plane ... never made it to Kansas
says the plane left Austin at 1 p.m. and is headed for Stockton
As for Missouri, ESPN's Pat Ford's latest tweet reads:
Oklahoma State regents meeting scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Missouri AD Mike Alden meeting with his coaches in an hour.So expect more later.
