Del Conte told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he was not substantiating the rumors.
“If you listen to the radio interview my comments were in reference to where (the Big 12) was a year ago and now we’re being talked about by all these schools,” Del Conte said. “It’s gratifying because a year ago we were talking about the Big 12 not being around. It’s just remarkable the transformation in less than a year. That’s all I was addressing.”
On Tuesday, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds told CBSSports.com that the Big 12 was happy as a 10-team league, but could grow.
“I don’t think it needs to expand,” Dodds said.“It certainly can expand because there will be people that will want to be a part of it. That’s another good thing.”
