    Re: Bowlsby a Commish Candidate?

    I would prefer that the candidate be a Big 12 wonk. Bowlsby - no! Some ESPN ****** bag, absolutely no. If Castiglione is the closest thing to Big 12 power broker then maybe. It has to be someone that has POWER!

    The next Big 12 Commissioner needs to be able to muster a better signature than Bowlsby can...

    Re: Bowlsby a Commish Candidate?

    I'd pass on Bowlsby. What does he know about negotiating mega TV deals? The only thing he did at iowa was hire Ferentz and watch the money roll in. Not too hard to upgrade facilities when you're getting an extra $20M a season.

    I agree. He's always seemed like a giant bag to me.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Bowlsby a Commish Candidate?

    No problem with bowlsby. Has overseen a successful athletic department at Stanford. Has strong connections in Pac12 and B10 for possible scheduling arrangements, etc. And has seen firsthand how a powerful commish can steer a conference to heightened profitability and stability. Delaney and Scott have delivered their conferences mega-dollars through a strong executive-type role.

    That is what we need. Someone who will develop/demand cohesion.

    He has an $81,000,000 athletic budget at Stanford...so he should be able to be successful. Where has he demonstrated the ability to develop and demand cohesion?

    Here's the grade he was given by a local reporter last June:

    Here’s how I’d grade him on handling of various topics:

    Football: A+
    (Football infrastructure changes: A+++)
    Men’s basketball: D
    Athletic dept. management: C
    Fundraising: C-
    Pac-10 involvement/leadership: A
    Overall: B (Because football is so important.)
    Deserving of contract extension? Yes.
    One man's opinion of course, but not exactly earth shattering...

    Don't lie; you give him 7.5/10 and you would be his catcher.

    Suddenly Bowlsby doesn't seem like such a bad choice.
