Big 12 still withholding revenue as Baylor assessment continues

17 Juillet, 2017, 22:35 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier
  • Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby shakes hands before speaking to reporters during the Big 12 NCAA college football media day at the Dallas Cowboys practice facilities in Frisco Texas Monday

"Matt Rhule has come in and done terrific work on the culture of the Baylor football program", Bowlsby said. "Obviously, that's the coin of the realm at this point".

Additionally, the Big 12 signed just 27 recruits in 2017 from the ESPN 300, the fewest of any Power 5 league for the fifth straight year.

"It gets a little tiresome because I know we play at a very high level, and I know that top to bottom we're the best in the country in terms of balance", Bowlsby said. "The number of platforms, the number of distribution mechanisms - the one thing I will tell you, and this I believe, is that the best reality TV available is live sports".

Despite missing the CFP party for the second time in three seasons, Bowlsby was pleased with the conference's 2016 postseason performance.

When Stoops left, 33-year-old offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley was promoted and became the youngest FBS head coach.

Bowlsby arrived as the Big 12 was coming out of realignment, losing original members Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado and Texas A&M to other conferences and gaining West Virginia and TCU. "For a league that is reported to be singularly interested in offense, that probably speaks volumes".

While wrestling in the Big 12 now has a total of 12 teams - the second-most in a conference behind the 14 in the Big Ten Conference - Bowlsby said there are no other Olympic sports in the conference that are currently in talks of adding affiliates.

"The finances of it were - I don't ever recall them being discussed".

That particular remark was met with a wave of eye rolls. That's a 15 percent increase from last season, and it doesn't include the third-tier rights each school distributes. I think he's tremendous in every way.

He briefly touched on how fans might view games in the near future, positing "we may be watching the Super Bowl on the insides of our eyelids before too long". It's destination viewing, and people want to watch it in real time, and as long as that's the case, it doesn't matter how they consume it.

Bowlsby, hired in 2012 after working as the athletic director at Stanford, Iowa and Northern Iowa, has been offered a contract extension by the Big 12's board of directors and plans to complete the paperwork soon. "I like what I'm doing".
