Live from Big 12 Football Media Days

Commissioner Bob Bowlsby speaks to the media during the Big 12 media days at the Frisco Star Ford Center.

FOX Sports Southwest's Ric Renner will host BIG 12 LIVE FROM MEDIA DAYS with FSSW college football analyst Gary Reasons, and reporter Erin Hartigan will interview Big 12 coaches throughout the two-day event. "It gets a little tiresome because I know we play at a very high level, and I know top to bottom we're the best in the country in terms of balance".

Bowlsby, 65, became the fourth Big 12 commissioner in 2012, taking over from his role as athletic director at Stanford. "Data that we saw that indicated that playing a championship game and having that 13th data point would, in fact, deliver that advantage".

Bowlsby does not expect the conference's assessment of Baylor to conclude before the 2017 football season begins, he said. I think he's tremendous in every way.

"You can have as good a postseason as we had previous year and still you are viewed as being (only) marginally successful if you're not in the CFP and not playing in the title game", Bowlsby said.

The league distributed an average of $34 million per school for the 2016-17 school year, a record amount and 15 percent increase over the previous year.

Without divisions in the Big 12, the championship game will match the top two teams from the regular season on the first weekend in December at the Dallas Cowboys' home stadium. It's about winning National Championships.

Bowlsby arrived as the Big 12 was coming out of realignment, losing original members Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado and Texas A&M to other conferences and gaining West Virginia and TCU. Stoops won 10 Big 12 titles and a national championship in his 18 seasons with the Sooners.

Google pay gap battle
The 25,000 names Berlin ordered Google to produce represent another win for the department and its investigators, Herold said. Google fought the lawsuit , and the Washington Post reports that a judge has ruled in favor of the tech giant.

While Bob Bowlsby wasn't ready to advocate for the Big 12 naming its championship trophy after Bob Stoops, the commissioner recognizes how Oklahoma's coaching change creates ramifications beyond the field.

"My health is good and I feel like I'm a pretty young 65, so I'll stay at it for a while". "I like what I'm doing. His legacy is extraordinary". The other new Big 12 head coaches are Tom Herman at Texas and Matt Rhule at Baylor. "I think that, by many measures, we had a really good postseason". Bowlsby was very complimentary of the three, declaring them some of the best new coaches in the nation.

"He's a very humble guy with the right kind of temperament to come in after a legendary coach".
