If you were to think of one school that probably has the least options of any P5 school it would have to be Baylor or possibly K-State. Ann Richards & Bob Bullock can't rescue them this time.So is this desperation or do you think he's got something on them?
Speaking of said situation ...
"I am absolutely certain ESPN employees have discussed and provided incentives for at least one conference to raid 3-5 members from the Big 12. In doing so, they are prepared to reward them with future television proceeds. If the conference goes away as an entity, Oklahoma and Texas could be relieved from their exit obligations. Those obligations at this time would include the payment of $70M to $80M -- two years full revenue -- per school and leaving their media rights with the Big 12.
"We're just not going to sit still and let somebody who is supposed to be our partner collaborate and disrupt our business. I know with certainty they are doing it relative to one conference. I suspect they have done the same thing in moving Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC."
For their part, ESPN had a one-sentence response: "The claims in the letter have no merit."
Boy, this is fun! I only care about where my alma mater, Texas Tech, ends up.
