  2. Bowlsby will kick things off in a bit...

  3. Bowslby opens with welcoming Donati and Jeff Long as the new guys. Praising Del Conte for his move to Texas :(
     
  4. Only conference in the CFP, Mens and Women's CWS, and NCAA Tournament.
     
  5. Just going through a laundry list of accomplishments across the conference in various sports and back patting on holding forums on gender, race, and athlete rights in sports.
     
  6. Tickets for this year's Big XII Championship game go on sale this Friday.
     
  7. Next 4 years Jerry's World will host the Big XII Championship Game. Media Days will also move to AT&T for the next three years.
     
  8. Big XII made a deal with the Vices Helmet manufacturer, the helmets are bit heavier but top rated when it comes to protecting players.
     
  9. Big XII made presentation for DFW getting a Men's Final Four next season, decision will come later today.

  10. Conference feels the Big XII's road to the end of the season, round robin + 1 vs 2 championship is the toughest in the country.
     
  11. Championship game last year was a success, 63,000 in attendance.
     
  12. Conference doesn't think the regular season rematch in the conference championship is an issue, it's not uncommon across the nation.
     
  13. Big XII has the number 1 OOC schedule this season.
     
  14. 7 bowl positions this year for Big XII teams.
     
  15. "With the Big XII aspiring for a NC, any move to expand the playoff?"

    We have to be careful moving away from the current format since we [conferences] feel like we accomplished our goals with last year's playoff. Those discussions will be ongoing.
     
  16. "Discussion on Legal Sports Gambling?"

    We're in a wait and see environment.
     
  17. "When will College Athletes have the right to market their name and likeness?"

    We were nearly there before. As the 9th Circuit takes on the current case this fall there might be a loosening of the rules. This is at the heart of current student empowerment. The logistics and practicality are difficult to fathom.
     
  18. interesting. start-up out of seattle and until recently their helmets were ~$1,500 apiece. dropped that to $950 and curious if the big 12 deal drops that price anymore.

    interesting articles about the company and curious if the price limits the number of game day helmet options for teams.

  19. "Big XII is at a disadvantage with it's current format, are you trying to fight for all conferences playing the same number of conference games?"

    We're [conferences] not going to be the same, people [rankings, CFP] need to be more discriminating by looking at who these teams play, but if I were in charge I'd make everyone play 9 conference games.
