Commissioner Bob Bowlsby pushes back against perception of Big 12

5 Things To Watch For At Big 12 Media Days

5 Things To Watch For At Big 12 Media Days

"I think we have been responsive to what we heard from the CFP", Bowlsby said.

The idea is behind adding a 13th data point, but Bowlsby said the Big 12 has already been providing quality in the final weekend of the regular season even without the title game. "Anybody that tells you they know what it's going to look like three years from now is delusional", Bowlsby said. "We relied in large measure on our intuition and some data that we saw that indicated that playing a championship game and having that 13th data point would, in fact, deliver that advantage".

"I came up as a wrestler, so I care a lot about the sport", Bowlsby said. It's about winning national championships.

Stoops' football teams won a record 10 Big 12 championships, including the past two seasons.

"This didn't come from the conference office, (Oklahoma State wrestling coach) John Smith and our four wrestling coaches are the ones that came to us and said, 'We think this makes some sense, '" Bowlsby said. The date isn't finalized, and could be played on a Friday or Saturday.

"What you may not remember is that the Big 12 was first in scoring defense in the postseason past year, first among all conferences in scoring defense", he said Monday. That would also take him through the negotiations of the league's next media rights contract. "I like what I'm doing. I plan on being here a while".

On June 7, Stoops retired after 18 seasons as Oklahoma's head coach.

Bowlsby, 65, became the fourth Big 12 commissioner in 2012, taking over from his role as athletic director at Stanford. "His legacy is extraordinary".

"It varies a little bit from institution to institution based upon how they did in some of our championships, but we distributed a little over $34 million a year ago", he said at Ford Center at The Star, the event's new home and the Dallas Cowboys worldwide headquarters. The other new Big 12 head coaches are Tom Herman at Texas and Matt Rhule at Baylor.

"Along the critical success factors for any conference is the ability to distribute money to its members, and I think that we've continued to keep pace there", the commissioner said. I think they believe that I'm the right person to go through the process of looking for the right opportunity and optimizing our opportunity and then capitalizing on it from a financial standpoint.
