The T. Boone Big 12 factor

T. Boone Pickens, the $3 to $5 billion man, is the individual to keep an eye on if the Big 12 expansion deliberations stall over the weekend. Now he’s said to be pushing for more Texas teams to be included in the expansion.

The closer we get, the further away a deal seems to being finalized.

Pickens, who has donated an estimated $500 million to the Oklahoma State football program, made hundreds of millions on takeovers, acquisitions and mergers, and his fingerprints will be all over the final product.

Per the video, he has been known to change his mind a few times. Just a while back he was saying there was no way Texas A&M was going to the SEC and that TCU would add no value to the Big 12. He hates Missouri, by the way.
