08:25 AM ET 09.16 | At the very least, we now know Oklahoma will be considering "appropriate action." Is it possible that Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott might signal to Oklahoma that his presidents are satisfied with the current membership and the new media-rights fees will be divided by 12 and not 14 or 16? ... Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton, chairman of the Big 12 board of directors, described his feelings about the conference's prospects as "hopeful" and "optimistic" to reporters over the last two days. He didn't specify why. Good vibe? Wishful thinking? Whatever it is, the on-the-record comments were the first of a positive nature -- by anybody -- in weeks.

What the hell is wrong with 9? It used to be the Big 8. Eight conference games and four OOC games...and hopefully some of those are against some good opponents.

Oh and that way Tech couldn't cancel on TCU using the "we had to make room for the extra conference game" excuse.

Oklahoma should move to the Northeastern conference.

Yep and the best thing to do when you have a burr under the saddle...is to get a new horse! Seriously the Big 12 needs to look at getting some fresh blood into the conference or it will be picked off like Custer was at the Little Big Horn.

I favor returning to the Big 8 and SWC, remove the Big 12.

That sounds like something the old folks would say Brotha!

So you think they should go away from the Conference Championship Game format?
