Report: Big 12 to ask Beebe for resignation

As I wrote about earlier on Wednesday, the statement from Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione did not bode well for Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe. Well, if Dan Beebe read the Tulsa World on Wednesday, his day has gotten that much worse.

According to a Tulsa World report, the Big 12 presidents are to hold a teleconference on Thursday to work out a way to bring some long-term stability to the Big 12 conference. One of the ways the Big 12 plans on doing that is by asking commissioner Dan Beebe to resign.
Highly placed Big 12 sources told the Tulsa World that there is a consensus among Big 12 leaders to ask commissioner Dan Beebe for his resignation. Those sources confirmed that former Big Eight commissioner Chuck Neinas has been targeted to serve as the interim commissioner until Beebe’s replacement is identified.
The report also says that Oklahoma president David Boren first contacted Neinas several days ago.

It had been reported that Oklahoma would only remain in the Big 12 if Dan Beebe was replaced, and it seems that the Sooners are not the only school that shares this vision of change within the conference.

The presidents also plan on discussing a way to make one final pitch to Texas A&M to remain in the Big 12 and not join the SEC. Though if you listen to what Texas A&M has been saying the last couple of days, those odds are about as good as Dan Beebe's chances to still be the Big 12 commissioner next season.

CoachHoss2:
Charlie, i'd give this a 10 star rating if I could.  Hows the fishing out at Grand this year?
Thanky.  I know this sounds funny, but I haven't fished in years.  This summer I've kept busy acting like a roofer, putting a new roof on the lake house. Now, I'm acting like a lumberjack, cutting up the tree debris from the June tornado.
Crappie season is coming up and I will be picking up some of my dad's fishing tackle when I visit SA in Oct.  I'll start fishing then.

As I wrote WEEKS before Mr. Fornelli FINALLY

figured it out, BEEBE had to go.  WELCOME ABOARD TOM!!!   What took you so extremely long to catch on?  Come on.  I don't get paid for it, and I had it nailed weeks ago.  So what have you been doing since I posted on the message board that BEEBE had to be FIRED?  So stop breaking your arm patting yourself Mr. I told you so.  You didn't tell me so.  I told you.

Get rid of Beebe, talk TCU into the league.  Go get Air Force before the Big East grabs them.  Then pull in BYU or Houston.  Quit bumble butting around and get off your dead as ses Big 12.

I hope they let the Aggies go. Good riddance. Get BYU and then solicit Houston (tv market) and TCU (tv market)! TCU agreed to join the Big East when it was not in turmoil and can probably get out of it. I think those additions would make for a powerhouse conference!

To Jcowpoke:  I don't understand your comment toward me.  I am not a Sooner fan.  Do you really think that Beebe has been anything beyond a puppet for Texas?  He did nothing while the league crumbled.  As long as Texas get the LHN, that's the important thing.

TCU is already moving to a major conference, they are off the table.
