    So, I was reading the Baylor forums, and they are sourcing that it would take 9 votes to dissolve the B12, and would cost CU about $9M over 2 years.

    However, I was listening to Klatt and Kreckman, and they were saying they had some lawyers who read the Big12 bylaws, and that it was simply a 50% +1 vote, so 7 votes to dissolve the conference. They agreed on the amount it would cost CU.

    Anyone have any idea about this? I would think that 9 votes would be hard to pull off... but 7 is certainly reasonable (only 5 more)

    The Daily Oklahoman (aka, daily bark 'n' fart) today indicated it would take 9 votes to forego the financial penalties. Not sure that's correct, but....


    (consider the source)

    NCAA rules are that if 50% of a conference leaves, the conference is disbanded. So 6 schools leave, no penalties is the way I interpret it. But any financial changes in the Big 12 take 9 votes, and any rule changes I believe take a majority so 7 votes, so that is where they are getting those numbers from. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    nice response.


    Sure the lawyers are on it. Not concerned since I don't think there will be 3 teams in the Big 12 in two weeks... Probably the only one left will be, BAYLOR. haha.



    change your avatar leash to a Eric Bieniemy picture.. He's going to be our new coach going to the Pac 16!!!

    The whole regents' meeting on Tuesday was exactly this. They wanted to check out their legal options.

    We made the move, and with a lot of due diligence, so I'm not concerned with this at all.
