Big 12 Athletic Directors Commit To Stability

According to Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard, the Big 12 is stabilizing after a regularly-schedule meeting of the league’s remaining athletic directors yesterday:


“Ultimately we have to prove it because there will always be doubters.  All I can say is the people we were locking arms with that room feel pretty committed to me.  I take people on their word.  I’m not worried about it at all.”


Well, trusting people is a dangerous position to take.  After all, members of Pitt’s administration were working on Big East planning right up until the point they pulled the rug out from under their league-mates and announced a move to the ACC.

That said, Pollard told reporters that formal agreements to ensure stability in the Big 12 are “still a work in progress.”  He also added that “all nine member institutions are fully engaged and committed” to finalizing those league-saving agreements.

Missouri AD Mike Alden deferred to Pollard when asked about the meeting, but his one comment was hardly a ditto to Pollard’s statements.  “It’s a crazy time,” said Alden.

Indeed.
