The government committee of the Giant 12 Convention met Sunday by means of videoconference with the college presidents of Texas and Oklahoma amid stories that the 2 colleges need to transfer to the Southeastern Convention.
Giant 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby used to be at the name with Texas Tech president Lawrence Schovanec, who may be the Giant 12 Board of Administrators chairman, and Baylor president Linda Livingstone so they may talk with Texas president Jay Hartzell and Oklahoma president Joseph Harroz.
“The assembly used to be cordial, and the Govt Committee expressed a willingness to speak about proposals that might make stronger the Convention and be mutually really helpful to OU and UT, in addition to the opposite member establishments of the Convention,” Bowlsby stated in a commentary. “I be expecting that we can proceed our conversations within the days forward and we look ahead to discussing ideas, concepts and ideas that can be of shared pastime and affect.”
The decision came about days after the Houston Chronicle reported that Oklahoma, who has received every of the closing six Giant 12 soccer championships, and Texas, the largest moneymaker in faculty sports activities, explored the opportunity of becoming a member of the SEC.
This kind of transfer would motive main ripples in faculty athletics and power different leagues to scramble in an effort to catch up.
Texas A&M’s board of regents is assembly on Monday to speak about SEC realignment and governance problems associated with the convention after A&M athletic director Ross Bjork expressed his want to stay Texas out of the SEC.
