Texas Not Going to Lead Big 12 Train

 

Bohn says Big 12 "best for Colorado"

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — If Texas leaves the Big 12 Conference, it won't happen unless the conference crumbles first, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said during the Big 12 spring meetings Wednesday.

 

He said that also goes for Colorado.

"We're not going to go first," Dodds said. "We can go places, but we're not. We're not — unless somebody else leaves. We're not going to lead that train."

Texas, boasting the biggest athletic department budget in the country and one of the biggest football draws, is a huge piece to any realignment puzzle. There has been speculation the Big Ten will try to lure the Longhorns, then have other Big 12 members follow.

Dodds said he thinks the only way Colorado would leave the Big 12 is if other members bolt first.

"If the Big 12 lost members, I think Colorado would look strongly at the Pac-10," Dodds said. "I just don't see Colorado leaving the Big 12. I just think they're better off here."
