Big XII Meetings Begin With Big Cash, Scheduling Alliances On The Agenda

big-12-logoThe SEC isn’t the only league holding its spring meetings this week.  The Big XII is having its annual get-together and a couple of agenda items might interest fans of the Southeastern Conference.

First, the 10-team Big XII is expected to hand out the biggest revenue checks in college athletics for the 2012-13 season.  The number being kicked around as a possibility is $26 million per school.  Commissioner Bob Bowlsby has said that number is “in the ballpark.”

Also, it’s expected that Big XII leaders will discuss a proposed football scheduling alliance with the ACC.  That topic has been floating around for a while.  The Big XII and SEC have also had conversations — at some level — regarding a possible scheduling partnership.  A planned alliance between the Big Ten and Pac-12 was scuttled before ever getting off the launch pad.

As we wrote a couple of weeks ago, it will be interesting to see if any two leagues can get a scheduling alliance off the ground.
