Tuberville says Big 12 won't last long
First-year Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville broke ranks with those inside the Big 12 who laud the efforts that kept the conference together and speak of a bright future for the 10-team league.

In an interview Tuesday on Rivals Radio, Tuberville said that he didn't think the new Big 12 would have staying power.

"I don't think this conference will last long because there is too much disparity between all the teams," Tuberville told host Bill King. "In the SEC, for instance, Vanderbilt makes as much money in the television contract as Florida. Everybody is good with it. Everybody is on the same page. Everyone gets the same votes.

"That doesn't happen here in the Big 12. We have some teams that get a little bit more money and have a little bit more stroke than some of the other teams. And when that happens, you're gonna have teams looking for better avenues to leave and reasons to leave."

Well this is not a surprise to anyone I believe. Texas = greedy = ruins conference ... oh yeah that already happened once ... Texas = greedy = ruins SWC ...now it will happen again. I wonder when schools will start to realize Texas is a deathbed for them to be in association with when it comes to athletics.

1. Yep, Tubs is right on.
The UT + Nine League ain't long for this world. They need George W. Bush as Commissioner to make the pie higher and put more food on the family.
