Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard Talks OU and Texas Leaving Big 12
Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard is urging Cyclone fans to not panic as a new round of conference realignment begins. Pollard released a recorded message to fans after Texas and Oklahoma took the first step in their eventual exit from the Big 12 Conference.
Pollard believes the Big 12 will remain intact through 2025 which would give Iowa State and the rest of the conference time to explore their options.
Pollard believes that Texas and Oklahoma will stay with the conference until 2025. If either team leaves before 2025, they would owe the Big 12 a buyout of as much as 85 million reportedly.
