    Big 12 Exploring Network

    Thought this was important enough to have a side thread....


    In a regularly-scheduled meeting today at an undisclosed Dallas area location, the Big 12 Conference Board of Directors reaffirmed previous action to execute institutional grants of Tier 1 (over-the-air) and Tier 2 (cable) television rights to the Conference.

    The Board also discussed a wide range of topics including NCAA legislation, the Bowl Championship Series, and exploration of a Conference dedicated TV network. Additionally, a strong desire for the University of Missouri to maintain its Big 12 affiliation was expressed. All 10 member institutions and TCU participated in the meeting.

    Re: Big 12 Exploring Network

    We need a B12-Texas network. It doesn't even have to include OU. It doesn't have to make much money (and won't because of the few TV sets in the midwest). But the perception and exposure of a network in today's age is getting critical.

    Believe it when I see it. They talked about it 2007 too and here we are, in the middle of **** creek with 3 schools gone and a 4th ready to jump.

    Re: Big 12 Exploring Network

    The question is, how did those discussions go? Enough support for it, or one or two members bringing it up and it then getting shot down. Hoping because it was mentioned it means it has a chance of happening.

    Totally agree.

    However, why put that tidbit out there for the public if you didn't think it was likely you'd do it???

    Riddle me that.

    And I think the Big 12 has seen the repercussions of not doing it in 2007. 3 schools have left and a 4th is teetering on the edge. More reason to do it now to build stability and make the big schools want to stay.

    To help put a positive spin on a situation which has generated nothing but negative publicity. "See? We are all trying to get along! Big12 luvs cooperation! Yeeeaaahhh!!! Shinny things!!!"

    Re: Big 12 Exploring Network

    This could be a very real reason why BYU negotiations hit a snag.

    Mountain West has a network as well. Not a big money maker compared to the Big 10, but the simple fact they were able to do so means the major conferences should be doing it as well.
