I am not a proponent of a multi-round college football playoff system. While it would certainly be interesting for fans, I do not think it is in the best interest of our football student-athletes.

Obviously, we are buoyed by the commitments of our existing colleagues and league institutions to preserve the Big 12 Conference and its position as one of the nation’s top leagues. Our sincere appreciation goes to all of our league partners, and certainly Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe and his staff, for their hard work during this process. Our league has a very bright future, and we are looking forward to new levels of growth and opportunity.
