    Was money sharing ever actually signed?

    It's been so long -- with a season of football mixed in.

    I remember (perhaps incorrectly), that the schools were planning on assigning their TV money to the conference for 6 (or so) years. BUT nothing was formally done because everyone was waiting on Mizzou.

    So -- is this actually formally part of the Big 12 yet? Have the 8 remaining schools signed? And what about TCU/West Virginia?


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    I do not think so.

    Sort of. I don't know if the deal has been ratified by ALL of the Big 12 member schools yet, but from this it sounds like that is just a formality.

    "That assignment of rights isn't legally binding just yet--interim commissioner Chuck Neinas has been "authorized by the Board to immediately distribute legal documents for institutional execution." But with the grant of rights part of a "joint resolution" on the part of Texas and Oklahoma (who have each already publicly endorsed the conference's invitation to TCU), it seems unthinkable that either would back out of the arrangement now, or that any of the six other non-Missouri Big 12 schools wouldn't follow their lead."
    Big 12 agrees to six-year grant of TV rights - CBSSports.com

    Given that we haven't heard anything to the contrary, it seems the TV rights deal will be in effect next year - and it would apply to new members as well.

    It has since been done
