Texas officials say they are open to a new
revenue-sharing model in the Big 12 and have already suggested that
top-level television and cable money be shared equally.
But Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds says Texas doesn't want
to share the money from its Longhorn Network, a 20-year, $300
million deal with ESPN.
Dodds says Big 12 athletic directors months ago approved Texas'
offer to equally share other media revenue around the league. He
says the plan has not been voted on by league presidents.
Texas President William Powers says creating stability is the
top priority for the Big 12. Powers says all options are open to
achieve that goal.
