BIG 12 scheduling woes

News from the BIG 12

http://www.journalstar.com/articles/....txt

Some other factors have created significant challenges for college football schedule-makers in big-time programs. For instance, the addition of a 12th regular-season game last year in Division I-A set off a wild scramble to fill open slots in schedules. Meanwhile, guaranteed payouts to visiting nonconference opponents escalated dramatically — from as little as $250,000 a few years ago to as much as $750,000 now.

Interesting stuff for those who love the schedule debate.

Also Weiberg resigns. Is the beginning of the end for the BIG 12 or just another chapter in the mismatched league?

Hooray for Kevin and his mediocre deals.

Earlier this spring, Weiberg helped negotiate a new eight-year contract between the Big 12 and ABC/ESPN that is reportedly worth more than $450 million. During his tenure, the Big 12 won 27 NCAA team championships and more than 200 individual titles.
