I am not sure you understand what a GOR is.
You are making it too complicated. Fox wouldn't give a damn if Texas is in the Big 12 or not, they'd still show up to Texas games that they select, and send the check on over to the big 12.

I guess if UT tried to bar Fox and ESPN from entering their stadium, then we'd have a hilarious mess that would probably end with UT paying triple damages.
