Nebraska Officials Say Paying Buyout Money Would Be 'Inappropriate'

New, 3 comments

That reported $35-40 million buyout money from Nebraska and Colorado?

Nebraska's not paying it, according to Chancellor Harvey Perlman.

“I thought in the context, (an exit fee) would be inappropriate," Perlman said. “From what I understand the Big 12 has done, I think it’s even more inappropriate."

Texas president William Powers would disagree.

“We’ll leave that to the lawyers," Texas President William Powers said Tuesday. “I think the conference rules are clear on that."

Looks like this Big 12 mess could eventually hit the courts, which would mean delaying some sort of finality even longer.
