Dan Bebe puts Texas in the Big 12 driver's seat.

Written by Juan Cena on Monday, June 14 2010 and posted in SWRT

The best description for the Big 12 may have come from Black Heart Gold Pants, which compares the conference's status to Schrodinger's Cat. It may still exist and it may not. What is known is that if Texas decides to leave, most of the conference goes with it. Dan Bebe may have found a way to stop the Longhorns and co. from bolting, and preserving Big 12 its now 10-member configuration. But it pretty much its two-parts admission of the control Texas has in the conference, and one part terms of surrender.
Either way the mass exodus of teams west (possibly south, in Texas A&M's case) looks to be on hold. Bebe's plan for a Big 12 Network that would allow Texas to start its own network looks to be the linchpin of the deal. It also does nothing to equalize the issues with the disparity of revenue sharing in the conference.
Bebe has all but given Texas the keys to the conference. The deal does everything but move the Big 12's offices into a stall in the barn next to Bevo. And that may be happening sooner or later.
