OU president Boren says Big 12 is strong, on positive track

IRVING, Texas (AP) – Oklahoma President David Boren says the Big 12 board of directors is in a data-gathering mode and would rather be right than hasty while considering the possibility of expansion.

Boren, serving as chair of the league’s board that will make the final decisions, described the 10-team league as very strong Thursday and on a "very positive track."

Oklahoma’s president once described the Big 12 as "psychologically disadvantaged" as the smallest of the five power conferences, without a football championship game or league-wide television network.

Boren said it is time for the league to make decisions, but is in a position of strength with time to be careful in making them.

The Big 12 directors meet again Friday, the last day of the league’s spring meetings.
