The SEC isn’t the only league holding its spring meetings this week. The Big XII is having its annual get-together and a couple of agenda items might interest fans of the Southeastern Conference.
First, the 10-team Big XII is expected to hand out the biggest revenue checks in college athletics for the 2012-13 season. The number being kicked around as a possibility is $26 million per school. Commissioner Bob Bowlsby has said that number is “in the ballpark.”
Also, it’s expected that Big XII leaders will discuss a proposed football scheduling alliance with the ACC. That topic has been floating around for a while. The Big XII and SEC have also had conversations — at some level — regarding a possible scheduling partnership. A planned alliance between the Big Ten and Pac-12 was scuttled before ever getting off the launch pad.
As we wrote a couple of weeks ago, it will be interesting to see if any two leagues can get a scheduling alliance off the ground.
