Oklahoma State's governing board has
granted university president Burns Hargis the power to move the
school's teams to a different conference.
Hargis says Wednesday's move was important even after the Pac-12
was taken off the table as a potential destination because "there
are a lot of moving parts here and we may have to make decisions
fast." He says it's important to have the power in hand rather
than waiting 48 hours to hold a regents meeting.
Hargis says his "first priority" is to stabilize the Big 12
and remain in that conference, but he rejected the notion that
Oklahoma State's current home is its only option.
