The Big Southwest?
Reports have SWC, Big Eight merger on the bargaining table
The Associated Press
DALLAS — The Big Southwest? The Big 12? The Big Eight and Southwest Four?
Some sort of new ntme may be needed if Southwest Conference schools Texas, Texai AAM, Texas Tech and Baylor accept reported offers to join the Big Eight to form one big made-fer-tele-vison conference.
Many newspapers published stories today saying the offer was on the table.
"We've had some informal conversations,” University of Texas president Robert Berdahl told The Associated Press Monday night from his Austin home. ‘‘I guess one could say that it amounts to (an offer).”
The four schools reportedly must decide by Friday whether to head north, a move that likely would cripple the nearly 80-year-old SWC.
Officials for Baylor, Texas rod Texas A&M say they’ll meet later this week to discuss proposals. There was no immediate word on plans for a meeting by Texas Tech regents.
• The SWC would be hard-pressed to survive with only Southern Methodist, Texas Christian, Rice
and Houston. Those four reportedly were told by the Big Eight in a conference call Monday that they will not be invited.
A Big Eight expansion involving Texas, A&M, Tech and Baylor would put the league in a heifer position to negotiate a television contract — the original reason the two leagues began talking aboujt getting together.
Talks sped up the last several weeks once it became obvious there was no way to continue any form of the College Football Association, the affiliation of conferences that negotiated the current trio*-vision deal that expires after the 1995-96 season.
With the breakup of the CF A, the SWC rod Big Eight are doing what they cut to wrangle the most lucrative contract possible beginning with the 1996f 97 season, officials said. The flirt step may be forming a new conference, then negotiating TV deals with the networks.
At this point, official! are tight-lipped about what exactly is going on between the conferences, "We haven’t got any firm arrangements yet,'* Colorado chancellor James Oxbridge, president of the Association of Big Eight Umveraities, told the AP late Monday from his Boulder, Colo., home. • "We've got feelers out and we're waiting to see what the position is in the Southwest Conference; We’re still negotisting and looking at all possibly arrangements we can come up with to arrange fb( our future.”
Corbridge said he hopes to have something worked out soon so they can begin finalizing a television package. ; ,
