Finebaum: Revenue withholding a 'very bad sign for Baylor' (1:01)

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor interim president David Garland said the school welcomes the Big 12's demand for an independent review and pledged his full cooperation. He called the withholding of 25 percent of its revenue "an unexpected financial event" that should not hurt the overall financial position of the university. For context, 25 percent of last year's Big 12 revenue distribution to each school would be nearly $8 million.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

The Big 12 Conference Board of Directors voted unanimously to withhold one-quarter (25 percent) of future revenue distribution payments to Baylor University, pending the outcome of third-party verification review of required changes to Baylor's athletics procedures and to institutional governance of its intercollegiate athletics programs, among other matters.   "The Board is unified in establishing a process to verify that proper institutional controls are in place and sustainable," said Oklahoma president and Big 12 chairman David Boren. "Effective immediately, the Conference is withholding 25 percent of Baylor's share of any future revenue distribution until the proper execution of controls is independently verified.  By taking these actions the Board desires to ensure that the changes that were promised are actually made and that systems are in place to avoid future problems.  The proportional withholding of revenue distribution payments will be in effect until the Board has determined that Baylor is in compliance with Conference bylaws and regulations as well as all components of Title IX."   Baylor was not included in the Board vote and will be responsible for all associated costs.
