Bowlsby said there aren't any non-Saturday Big 12 football games on the schedule but some could be moved to Thursdays, Fridays or Sundays if necessary. "It would be something we'd work out with our TV partners."
Asked if Big 12 basketball season will start on time, Bob Bowlsby said, "I haven't the faintest idea, but there hasn't been anything to tell us it isn't starting on time."
Bowlsby said the Big 12 presidents/chancellors didn't set any date in near future to look at events, re-examine starting the season. Next board meeting is next Monday night.
Bowlsby said if Big 12 season was canceled before it starts or after a few games, spring football "would be one of the options. Or we might try to restart (fall season). I think spring football is a viable option, just not the first choice."
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby tells me the presidents and chancellors didn't consider spring football at last night's meeting. "We didn't discuss it at all."

Bowlsby said, "We don’t ever characterize the discussions or votes in the room. We feel very good about the vote." Wouldn't say if it was unanimous.
Bob Bowlsby said, "I feel good about where we are at the present time... What we felt was golden a month ago is garbage today. ... We'll have bumpy spots throughout the fall."
Bob Bowlsby said the Big 12 directors heard from a representative from the Mayo Clinic who works with genetic cardiology.

Big 12 sticking to a “9+1” scheduling model. Will start league play on Sept. 26. Each team has two bye dates at a minimum and room for a third with title game set for Dec. 12.
Or we could have immediate CFP expansion to an 8-team field with ACC and Big 12 champions, one Group of Five team, Notre Dame and 4 SEC teams.
I almost went there. Figure the Bobcats should make ONE bowl game first, bud. twitter.com/Keff_C/status/…
Group of Five teams will have their best CFP chances ever this fall, now they have less competition from the Power Three conferences. Hello, UCF. Whatcha got, Houston? SMU?
Release says all 2020 Masters ticket-holders will be guaranteed their tickets for the 2021 tournament to be played in April.
So sad the Masters will be played without "patrons." At least the merchandising shop will be easier to get in and out of.

Bohls: Big Ten, Pac-12 decisions bring even more questions hookem.com/columns/202008… via @bevobeat
When I asked Larry Scott about playing two football seasons in same calendar year and keeping players safe, P12 commish said, "That was one of our top questions and considerations." Said season could start in January and implied could be "a compressed season."
Larry Scott said PAC-12 CEOs decion to cancel the fall season was unanimous.
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby says he wasn't shocked by decision by Big Ten to cancel fall football. Asked if Big 12 can realistically continue if Big Ten and Pac-12 both cancel fall sports, Bowlsby said, "We'll see." He doesn't want to speak for B12 presidents, chancellors.

Ohio State's Gene Smith also said, "We would have preferred to have played."
"I wish we had a little more time, but we understand it was time to pull the plug," Ohio State AD Gene Smith said. "We stand with the league."
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska and Penn State all have outstanding volleyball teams, won't be able to compete this fall.
As a reminder, the Big 12 Board of Directors convene its meeting today to discuss fall football at 5 p.m.
Kevin Warren said the league will "start refocussing" on the future to see if spring season is viable.
Kevin Warren said, "I feel very comfortable that we made the right decision."

"The world's not ending today," Big Ten commish Kevin Warren said.

About Big Ten schools playing elsewhere, Kevin Warren said, "Last couple of days have been very, very emotional. Coaches are passionate. Many statements were made. I just think they were a point of passion." In other words, he says no.
Kevin Warren wouldn't reveal the vote tally for canceling the fall season. "I would rather not have a detailed discussion about whether the vote was unanimous." Means it wasn't.
