Texas Tech Head Coach Doesn't Think The Big 12 Will Last

Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville recently said on Rivals Radio that he doesn't think the Big 12 is going to make it long-term.

"I don’t think this conference will last long because there is too much disparity between all the teams," Tuberville told host Bill King. "In the SEC, for instance, Vanderbilt makes as much money in the television contract as Florida. Everybody is good with it. Everybody is on the same page. Everyone gets the same votes.

"That doesn’t happen here in the Big 12. We have some teams that get a little bit more money and have a little bit more stroke than some of the other teams. And when that happens, you’re gonna have teams looking for better avenues to leave and reasons to leave."

Most of the other coaches have supported the league (they were probably told to) so Tuberville's criticisms are interesting...and valid. What has changed? Nothing, really. The same problems are still there (no TV deal has happened...yet) and Texas is still considered it's own entity in the Big 12.

I give it two years.
