    Conference commitment (via Lew Perkins' press conference)

    Came across this article and found this, which I had not heard anywhere else (FWIW):

    The Big 12 schools signed an agreement to stay in the conference 10 years. If other things happen, it could be longer. Perkins says he has no reason to fear that any other Big 12 team will bolt on the league. All indications are that the teams are in the Big 12 for the long haul.

    So for all the naysayers, the conference will still be around when the TV deals are eventually struck

    If that's the case, then we have a decade to fix all our problems, ladies and gents. Let's not squander it...

    Huge loss for the conference when Perkins steps down.

    Umm, Perkins may not exactly be stepping down because it is his decision. Some shady stuff has gone on in the KU athletic department.

    Not saying that, but the man is pretty powerful in college athletics.

    lets see if there are any teeth in that agreement. if the fine for leaving isnt significant, it isnt worth the paper its printed on.

    Its funny how Beebe never mentions this during his press conference. This seems like kind of a big deal to me. I wouldn't have been nearly as ****** off as I was if I knew this.

    Seems to me there has been a concerted effort this time around to not leak all of the details and leave things vague.
