For years, some Big 12 leaders — Oklahoma State's Mike Holder, Beebe himself — fought for equitable revenue sharing. Holder's mantra was echoed by Baylor's McCaw: "I feel that you're only as strong as your weakest link." That point finally hit home in the revenue-sharing. The new Fox deal will be split evenly, and 76 percent of the current ABC contract will be shared equally. Part of the Big 12's money was set aside for teams that appeared more on television or moved games around to accommodate TV. OU's Joe Castiglione said athletic directors decided that instead of a system with so much minutia — this team was on this network, this team was on that network — "it just seemed we were going to be closer to revenue sharing anyway. Why not just make the decision to share it all?" What exactly led to the vote? The kumbaya spirit or the newfound riches of the $1.17 billion Fox contract? "Yes and yes," Castiglione said.

From the Oklahoman's Berry Tramel regarding the Big 12's newfound togetherness. A little freaked out that Tramel wrote something actually pleasant (at least, the negativity is directed only at Nebraska, so who cares)? That's okay, Dandy Dave Sittler still came up with something horrendously awful yesterday. So awful that it doesn't even get a link. Just picture everything bad about everything Sittler's ever written, and it was in one pretty little package yesterday.
