    Would Mark Cuban make a good commissioner?

    Just wondering everyone's thoughts at least as an interim.

    I think he'd make a great one.

    I do not know how good he would be, but I think it would be entertaining.

    I also think he would be able to better the BigXII brand as a whole.

    Re: Would Mark Cuban make a good commissioner?

    Isn't/wasn't Cuban trying to get rid of the bowl system and institute a playoff? As I understand, most university presidents favor the existing system, so it would be a longshot for him to be the next Big 12 commissioner...

    Re: Would Mark Cuban make a good commissioner?

    I think he would be great. He unquestionably understands how to negotiate TV deals, and would be a great leader as well. Won't happen though.

    Re: Would Mark Cuban make a good commissioner?

    In a word... YES!

    I am still ****** (extremely upset urination) he got black balled out of owning the Cubs, apparently a centuries worth of suffering isn't enough. He is the kind of guy who would figure a way to get rid of Soriano and if he couldn't, he would just pay him to stay away.

    back to the Big XII, the downside would be that most everything would probably be located out of Dallas, but that is about it. He is in to win, and if his job was to have a successful Conference with solid TV contracts, solid bowl alliances, and stability... it would get done.

    ****** is a bad word?

    Why do you think he would be a great Big 12 commissioner? Have you taken a look at the Mavs finances since he took over? He is outspoken and energetic, but that doesn't mean he would be a good commisioner.

    What about president clinton? What about greg maddux? Have we thought about donald trump? We need an administrator with a great vission for the conference, not a quassi-celebrity.
