Texas Stands To Gain The Most If Dan Beebe's Plan Saves The Big 12

So they say Texas holds the key to the Big 12 as of now. If they decide to bolt for the Pac-10, at least three other schools are expected to follow meaning the end of the Big 12.

However, Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe has reportedly put the full court press on trying to keep Texas in the Big 12 conference.

Whether it works remains to be seen but one thing's for sure: He knows Texas is the key.

Under Beebe's plan, which includes revised television contracts that would reportedly add as much as $10 million per year for most schools, Texas would gain the most financially. Per Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com, Texas would stand to make $20-25 million" per year under the new plan.

Plus -- and this is a big one -- UT could get their own TV network.

Of course all this may be for naught if Texas A&M decides to go to the SEC but there are some reports out there that indicate they're not willing to give up the tradition they currently possess with Texas.
