Texas looking out for No. 1 in move to SEC

AUSTIN —For about 12 years now, ever since he left Rice to become TCU’s athletic director in October 2009, Chris Del Conte has been a central figure in the Big 12. He guided the Horned Frogs through their transition out of the Mountain West and into the conference after Missouri and A&M left 10 years ago. He oversaw expansion and renovation projects worth hundreds of millions of dollars across the university’s 272-acre Fort Worth campus before moving 200 miles south to Austin in December 2017.

Baylor football the favorite to land top LB target over Michigan, Texas

Dave Aranda has his work cut out for him if he’s going to get Baylor football back near the top of the Big 12 like it was in the final year of Matt Rhule. The Bears went just 2-7 in their first year under Aranda and the defense was the lone bright spot, finishing in the top 50 nationally in total yards allowed per game.

GoPowercat publisher Tim Fitzgerald delivers his thoughts on the day's notable headlines from Kansas State athletics and the sports world. Here is what is on today's agenda:. Texas and Oklahoma are officially bound for the SEC as of Friday, but according to the Big 12 by-laws, that can't happen until July 1, 2025. However, as Fitz explains, OU and UT fans and media are convinced their new lives in the SEC will start in 2022. Well, they may want to read the Big 12 by-laws, to which both schools are bound. To exit the Big 12 before 2025, the schools will owe $75 million apiece plus other damages. In other words, the Big 12 may soon be in court with more than just ESPN.
