    Could this guy be any more useless? I cant find the big-12 paper that claimed he was a big winner in everything last year but I'd love to see their response now.

    Winners:
    Dan Beebe. Before this week, Beebe was on the wrong side of the Commissioner Power Demarcation Line. (On the plus side: Mike Slive, Jim Delany, Larry Scott. On the minus side: Beebe, John Swofford, John Marinatto.) But then the Big 12 commish, with the help of many influential outsiders, managed to do what few people thought possible: He held his fracturing league together. Not sure many people thought he had it in him.

    Losers:
    Colorado. The Buffaloes relocated to a more fitting league, but at a high cost. The cash-strapped school must pay a hefty Big 12 exit penalty and will not have the hoped-for revenue bonanza of a Pac-16 membership to offset the expense.


    How quickly things change

    A cool Million to bail water out of the Titanic with a teacup and look classy doing it. Not too shabby.

    I think it´s funny how people routinely mix up the words Big 12/Texas/Dodds/Beebe these days.

    Beebe is really clueless.

    I give it a year before Larry Scott makes more than him, and actually earns his income. Hell, if they want to give him a raise and a contract extension now, no one would say anything.

    Yup, he really has it in for the Buffs, huh? I wonder if his math skills have improved since that article... This piece of it is pretty funny in hindsight, too:
