I do know, yes know that BYU and the Big 12 did have very deep discussions and negotiations. I do not know specifics nor will I claim to know specifics. But I do Know that a deal was inches away from being done last year, as for this year I couldn't speak to what the extent of the discussions have been.
Either way, stop trying to fool cb or yourself. The two parties almost had the deal done last year, this I do know.
