“Times continue to change and I think the Big 12 is probably concerned about the number of institutions in the Big 12, the future TV contracts and those kinds of things,” Dodds said, per 247Sports. “I think there’s going to be some movement again in the next two, three, four years. I think things will change again. How that happens or when that happens, I’m not sure. But I think maybe the Big 12 probably needs more members.”

- Texas women’s basketball opened their 2020-2021 season with a win.
- Fox college football analyst Joel Klatt thinks Texas head coach Tom Herman has had his shot. “The rub with Texas is they are playing to the level of their competition. Regardless of the level,” Klatt said on Fox this week, per 247Sports. “Sometimes they win, sometimes they lose. In one year, a couple of years ago, they beat Georgia in the Sugar Bowl...now they make far too many mistakes, penalties are an issue, they turn the ball over and they don’t make critical plays late in the game. They play to the level of their competition, make those mistakes and lose those close games. That’s rubbing a lot of people the wrong way. I thought Tom (Herman) had to win the rest of his games to stay. I don’t know this to be fact but I know there’s a lot of animus and I believe there is momentum to change down there. Who are they going to get, I don’t know? This is his fourth year, it’s enough. Particularly to not beat an Iowa State team, even if Iowa State is playing well.”
