On the benefits of a smaller conference:

"There's a lot of excitement and enthusiasm for what we have now which is different from our peer conferences, with a 10-member round-robin opportunity in football and double round robin in basketball and other sports."

On those who doubt the Big 12 can survive:

"I understand we're not going to get the benefit of the doubt for a while until we go through a time period where we demonstrate that what we said we meant: We're together and we're going to go forward together."
