    Interesting that article states NU and CU are paying $20 Mil each for conference departure, meaning $4 Mil each for remaining schools if they stay together.

    Re: KC Star Article: A&M denying any move

    So now we are speculating this contract could be close to 200 million. Unbelievable. If Beebe can pull this off I will.......well I don't know what I will do but I will be happy. Isu getting even 15 million for TV improves our cometition level greatly. Think, that is 8 million more a year. We could keep assistants, and head coaches. We could improve facilities much more and we could bowl in the Jack. I am excited. So tomorrow, when everyone leaves I will now be more disappointed.

    Shouldnt they have to pay that to whatever teams remain standing? If I were JP I would be the last one left.

    $15 Mil? The article said $17 to $20 Mil per shool. Man, if everyone leaves this will be the biggest let down.

    Pac-10 Officials Meet With Texas A&M; Aggies Still Weighing Options

    A&M President's statement:

    Loftin said, "As Bill Byrne and I have said on several occasions, our desire was for the Big 12 Conference to continue. With the departure of two universities from the conference last week, the Big 12 is certainly not what it was. We are aggressively exploring our options, one of which is for the Big 12 to continue in some form. We have also had extensive discussions with other conferences over the past two days. We continue to evaluate our options in a deliberate manner as we work toward a decision that is in the best long-term interests of Texas A&M."

    Why would you admit you're talking to other conferences if you really want to stay in the Big XII?

    Thats why I said even 15 mill. I can't imagine we get less than that even if it is unequal on a 200 mill contract.

    Posturing is the only logical reason that and everyone with 1/2 a brain know that its happening anyway.

    Because they are posturing, as well as doing what they should be doing since no one knows what will become of the conference.

    To show the alumni that you are exploring all possible options. In addition, if Texas, Tech, Oklahoma, and OSU leave the conference, A&M needs to be prepared to deal with that changed circumstance.

    Not each. Total. That's how he got to $2 million per school, even though "million" was left out and it reads as "$2" to each school.
