I don't think you are allowed to have a conference championship unless you have 12 teams.
Need 12 teams for a CCG. So they would have to add teams to make that happen.
In this scenario, the Big XII would have 10 teams and the Big 10 would have 12 teams.
How the **** am I supposed to explain this to my kid?
Makes perfect sense . . . . .
To the math departments at KjSU and kNU, proud members of the respective conferences.:lol:
UT and OU would rather not have to face off in a CCG. They both know they will be 1 and 2 nearly every year, why screw up a two BCS berth system with a CCG? KU, KjSU, MU, ISU Baylor and TT are so screwed. aTm may be able to compete, maybe Okie Lite with Boone pockets, but everybody else will be a whipping boy.
How much money does the CCG generate ?
One possibility is that the networks look at the current agreement compared to what it would cost them to renegotiate with a newly reconstructed conference or with other existing conferences to fill the time and decide that even with the reduced market footprint they still have a good deal.
If you look at the money that the Big 10 schools are getting, the ACC is getting, the SEC is getting and the PAC 10 is talking about the current Big XII deal is a bargain for the networks even minus CU and NU.
They probably have a contingency in the contractin the event that a CCG is not played. I also see TCU and Houston or UTEP jumping to join in an instant with some other schools in the region like SMU, Tulsa, etc lining up to grab any open spaces.
Does the Big12 have a unanimous vote requirement for expansion like the Pac does? If so, I wonder if TCU will regret their very public petition to keep Baylor out of their conference if the Big12 dissolves.
The figures I have seen indicated conference championships brought in $11.1 million (in 2007/2008)
If they were smart, they would steal BYU and TCU to completely cripple the MWC.
Texas: We move for the extension of an invitation to TCU to join the conference.
3 or 4 other teams: ( jumping up together) Second the motion our lords.
Baylor: Wait a minute, these guys tried to keep us out of the conference before, I'm not sure I . . .
Texas: (Cutting Baylor off mid-sentence) I said we make a motion. Do you want us to allow you to be a part of this or not.
Baylor: We appologize, your wish is our command our lords. May we kiss your boots again!
Texas: All in favor, approved unanimously.
rep. Mostly because there is a lot of truth to what you're saying here.
Petition to Keep Big-12 together. :lol:
