    Anyone just listen to Boone Pickens interview on OK St game?

    That sounded very encouraging. Says he is more informed then News/papers. Made it sound like the Big 12 will stick together and there will be full rev sharing.

    Changed the channel, I can't listen to that guy, I don't really like the fact that he bought OSU a football team.

    That being said, if ISU had someone do that for them I would be okay with it.

    Re: Anyone just listen to Boone Pickens interview on OK St game?

    T. Boone Pickens interview during the Arizona-Okie State game on ESPN right now. Here's some of what he had to say.

    "I don't want to lose [the Big 12 Conference]... I don't want it to go away."

    "I'm not sure that the Aggies are going to the SEC."

    "Oklahoma State's not going to enter into any litigation."

    "You always should do what's in your own best interests. Our own best interests [are that] we hold the conference together... Is that gonna happen? I don't know but we're gonna know pretty quick."

    "I know that OU and Oklahoma State are a package... We'll stick together."

    "I want a conference of equality... I want a conference of similar structure of the SEC and the Big Ten and the Pac-10." ("Equal revenue sharing?") "That's right."

    "I think we will have equality, and I think we will hold the Big 12 together."

    "I don't want to go back next year and have problems within the conference. We've got to have all the schools equal and go forward from there, and I think that will happen within the next few weeks."

    "No question [the conference] is important to us."

    Wish ISU would have taken him and he was an ISU alum. I would be thrilled as hell if he did that for us.

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Re: Anyone just listen to Boone Pickens interview on OK St game?

    Yes. He sounded very encouraging, but I temper that enthusiasm with the fact that he's with Okie State. A team that is taken care of by OU. He only knows what OU tells him he should know. He has no idea nor does he care about what it's like in Ames.

    Pollard has said the revenue sharing isnt an issue to him anymore. The new deal is very fair to all schools.

    I'm sure he's in the know. He's Big Six, Big Eight and Big Twelve true and true.
