...now the big question...does the Big 12 kick Mizzou out for '12 or hang on for dear life until WVU is set free...Big 12 needs 10 teams for TV contract to be held at present $$$$...so its either bring in WVU or keep Mizzou another year.

Interestingly, ESPN plays major role in two of the three conferences dancing to this partner change...SEC, Big 12, and BE ----needs a new name. My bet:
ESPN TO HELP OUT GET THE MOVEMENT DONE: $$$$$$$$$ for BE so WVU can leave and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for Big 12 so Mizzou can leave...and $$$$$$$$ for ACC so 'Cuse and Pitt can arrive......a few $$$$$$ will get this situation done...why worry about when 'Cuse/Pitt get to leave...it will be '12 or '13 at very latest

2013 - the other 6 teams coming in cannot come in until then.

ESPN should use the BE's situation as leverage. Tell the BE that they can keep their current contract even if the BE loses a team. In return the BE has to accept the ESPN offer for a new contract.

BTW how in the hell was TCU joining for 2012 under the old contract? Would they have not received TV money in 2012 and 2013? Or was the BE planning on splitting FB TV money 9 ways vs 8 ways?
