CAMPUS NOTES: BIG 12 STILL A CONFERENCE WITHOUT A HOME
Published December 5, 1995
Dallas and Kansas City have emerged as finalists to be home to the HQs for the new Big 12. A decision is not expected for another month or two. Univ/Colorado Chancellor Roderic Park: "Kansas City is the strongest proposal in terms of cash. Dallas is the strongest in terms of corporate sponsorships. We are looking for a meeting of those two strengths" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 12/3).... Collegiate Licensing Co. has added Mississippi State as the newest member (CLC)....The U.S. Education Department has published rules requiring colleges to issue annual reports on how much they spend on men's and women's athletics. The reports "could make it easier" for women's sports advocates to make the case for discrimination (N.Y. TIMES, 12/2).... There is "minimal interest" in the Citrus Bowl from Ohio State fans, still "disappointed" over a missed trip to the Rose Bowl. OSU has asked for the minimum of 12,000 Citrus tickets, while Tennessee has already received 18,500 and is expected to ask for more (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 12/5). CORRECTION: Friday's round-up of the preseason basketball Top 25 correctly listed Nike as UMass' official shoe, but should have named Champion as uniform outfitter.
