    FSN are inaccurate, according to sources close to the discussions. The 2 are talking but nothing's close."

    Who knows, but those numbers being thrown out are way overinflated.

    Everything is bigger in Texas, including the lies.

    The Big 12 already had a deal with ESPiN/ABC going through 2016. Not sure why they would renegotiate it at a vastly higher rate just to keep schools from jumping to the Pac-12, which it also has a deal with.

    More likely Beebe-Dodds is blowing smoke to keep the Big Texass conference alive...

    I find it incredibly hard to believe that Dan Beebe could have worked out a television deal and secured specific dollar amounts for each member institution in a one-week time span.

    Really? I find it quite simple: "Texas, you get it all and spread some around to the rest of your minions as you see fit."
