Big 12 Approves Revenue-Sharing, But That Doesn’t Mean A Thing

The Big 12 has announced that a revenue-sharing plan for all Tier I and Tier II television money has been accepted… IF the league’s members all sign over their TV rights to the league office for a minimum of six years.

So there’s still a pretty big “if” hanging out there.  Also, this does nothing for the Tier III rights which would include Texas’ Longhorn Network.

In other words, today’s announcement is a PR move — possibly designed to help ease the fears of potential Big 12 expansion targets like BYU.  But officially, nothing changes until each school agrees to hand its TV rights over to the league.  And that’s not happened yet.

Slive: “I Could Get To 16 (Teams) In 15 Minutes”

Dennis Dodd of has been paying attention to the growing rumors of Big 12 dissatisfaction (over Texas’ Longhorn Network) and the potential move to the SEC that Texas A&M might want to make as a result.  According to Dodd, Mike Slive has been paying attention, too, though he has no immediate plans of extending an invite to the Aggies.

“After last year, and the way in which it unfolded, prompted me to say we’re really comfortable (with 12 teams) unless there’s a paradigm shift,” Slive told Dodd.  “Now things have settled down.  At the same time, one of my responsibilities is to do what’s in the long-term best interests of the SEC.”

If that means expanding the conference, it sounds like Slive is confident there will be no shortage of schools willing to join the nation’s top athletic league.

“I could get to 16 (teams) in 15 minutes,” Slive said (“semi-boastfully” according to Dodd).
