    Larry Scott - I call BS!

    Says he would rather not expand to 16 teams and wants to stay at 12, I call BS. All his actions from last year and so far this year have pointed to him being the one to try and create the first super-conference. I'm hoping he's saying this because maybe he knows the Big 12 is staying put and wants himself to look better rather than getting turned down by OU.

    He is just saying that to avoid any potential legal action. Similar to the SEC saying we have no desire to expand at this point in time a couple weeks ago.

    Re: Larry Scott - I call BS!

    This is exactly what he needed to say for the three possible options:

    1. His league doesn't want to expand.
    2. Big12 teams don't want to jump ship.
    3. Big12 teams want to jump but don't want a Baylor lawsuit.

    none of these leagues have to worry about lawsuits. It is FOX and the mothership that have to worry and should be worried. Granted there may be smaller (compared to school vs. network) lawsuits, but the networks are the real players right now.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    They are the ones driving part of this. There was a story a few weeks ago about how Fox was telling the Big 12 what teams to go after.
