    VERY interesting interview with Bowlsby....13 year GOR signed!

    Gazette-Mail - What issues are you tackling right now?

    Bowlsby - Well, I've been in the middle of the BCS negotiations. We've been finalizing our television negotiations. And we're always discussing league expansion. Beyond that, I've just been getting acclimated to the conference and the people I'll be working with.


    Gazette-Mail - What's your view on membership? Is the current 10-school model all right or should there be more?
    Bowlsby - I don't think there's anything at all wrong with 10. Every league has to make its own decision based on membership. I think you only consider adding schools that make a substantial impact.

    I think it ought to be a very difficult fraternity to get into.


    Gazette-Mail - We've heard reports about the 13-year, $2.6 billion television deal with ESPN and Fox. When will the official announcement be made?
    Bowlsby - Generally speaking, we've already come to terms. [The announcement] will be made in the coming weeks or months.


    Gazette-Mail - Please clear up the issue concerning schools granting media rights to the league. Schools agreed to grant the rights for a minimum of six years, but then word came that was extended to 13 years. Has that agreement been signed?
    Bowlsby - It has been extended to 13 years and it has been signed.

    That is simply outstanding.
    13 years is a whole lot of stability. Way to go, Big 12!

    I liked his answer on expansion...."there's nothing at all wrong with 10." Talk about leaving your options open. I think his statement that "generally speaking" we already come to terms...may imply an agreement but with options to accommodate two new additions to the league. I know...reading way to much into it...but it ain't easy mining for nuggets these days...everyone of importance has gotten VERY tight-lipped.

    He mastered saying everything but nothing in that reply.

    I like that he acknowledged discussion about expansion, but as a normal part of doing business. At the same time, he's placing the Big 12 in the situation of the one being sought, not the one that needs to go looking.

    We're in an excellent place after some excellent leadership by Chuck Neinas. Looks like we're in the good hands we thought Bowlsby would provide.

    Yep...Day Zero and this guy's already knocking 'em out of the ballpark. How the heck did we ever allow Beebe to run this conference...amazing.

    They could have picked a luckier number.

    All I got to say is I really have no desire to join the Big 10 anymore, well, at least for 13 years.

    it'll be interesting to see what they get in a few years when their current one is up

    with as much as the contracts have exploded the past 2-3 years i think the sec and big 10 are going to get monster contracts in the next 2-3 years since those 2 seem to set the bar revenue wise and their previous contracts blew everyone elses out of the water until recently


    I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I'M FEELING 22!

    Bowlsby said 13-year Grant of Rights has been "memorialized" by presidents, but is not signed. That will wait until TV deal is finalized.
