According to the Austin-American Statesman. That’s 22 million each to the eight core members and 11 million to TCU and West Virginia, who gain full financial equivalence in 2013.

The bulk of that revenue comes from bowl games, television revenue, and the NCAA basketball tournament.

Bowlsby added that he expected the league to disperse more than $30 million per school soon and said, by the end of the 13-year television deal with ABC, ESPN and Fox, which began last year, the members will received about $40 million “if not just shy of that.”

Not shabby.

Big 12 Tournament: Texas Longhorns 70, TCU Horned Frogs 57

For the first 32 minutes, I seriously questioned whether the Texas Longhorns were even minutely better than their opponent, the TCU Horned Frogs. Then TCU went ice cold from both the three-point line and the free throw line, Texas made a few smart decisions on offense, and that was all she wrote.

Like Texas’ previous matchup with TCU, the double digit margin of victory belies how close the game really was and how mediocre Texas looked for a majority of the game. But at this point in the season, the only thing that matters to Texas is the W. With the victory, the Longhorns advance to play #2 seed Kansas St. tonight.

Recruit Tweets Violation By TCU Coaching Staff

Apparently TCU Co-OC Jarrett Anderson committed a no-no last week at Carthage High School during the quiet period. Coaches aren’t allowed to visit high school campuses February 8th through April 14th, but that didn’t stop the Horned Frogs from making an unscheduled visit.

Gary Patterson is a Sore Loser

Posted by    |    October 5th, 2011 at 8:59 am

Patterson (head coach of TCU) went on quite a rant after his loss to SMU, saying that he/TCU would never be nice to SMU again.

Among his complaints:

1. We Lost!
2. June Jones said some of my plays were predictable (which they were)!
3. Refs occasionally miss calls early in the game, leaving plenty of time for our team to recover!
4. We have talked to SMU in the past about how we built our program, just like they have done the same for us!
5. C-USA said they would apologize, but they didn’t, mommy!
6. The Big East said they might be looking into adding SMU, which totally takes the spotlight off of us!

He needs to do himself a favor an focus more on his own team.
