That doesn't really have anything to do with his comment, though.
The reality is that the Big 12 is going to be a lesser conference until they get to at least 12 teams and add a conference championship game.
The GOR adds stability, but there's always the chance that Texas and/or Oklahoma puts together a deal with another conference to bolt as soon as the GOR is up.
The Big 12 is opting for the quick buck via cutting the pie into fewer pieces while the power conferences are making "50 year decisions".
