Big 12 Commissioner Says League Could Be "Proactive" On Expansion

THINGS STABILIZING SOME? N.C. State Univ. Chancellor Randy Woodson yesterday said of conference realignment, “We were surprised as a conference by Maryland, and I’m not going to say a lot about that because there are some legal issues involved in that. But I think what most conferences have done to try to stabilize is make leaving the conference cost-prohibitive. And frankly I think it has stabilized, except for I would worry a little bit about the Big 12, because they only have 10 teams.” Meanwhile, he said of the ACC’s TV rights contract with ESPN, “We’re definitely satisfied with the level of coverage we’re getting. We’re getting a lot of national exposure as a result of our new contract. And it was a fair contract relative to everything. But this is a really strange time” (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 1/17).
