Pete Thamel catches BIG XII Commish Dan Beebe at the base of Golgotha today:
He added that the conference would not rule out carrying on without a conference football title game; N.C.A.A. rules require 12 members for such a game.
"It would be one less obstacle to getting into the national championship," Beebe said. "I think television value would still be there. I’m not talking about any specific school that would be departing. It would still be an extremely strong conference and player in the national landscape."
Plus, they already have experience dealing with complex divisional tiebreakers! His half-filled cup runneth over. Amen.
