The situation  reminds me when a Texas city I shall not name built its first major shopping mall. 

I kept of list of every real estate agent, politician and developer that took credit for the mall. I ended up with more than 50 names, each of whom stated to me that he/she was the primary or key force that created the mall. 

The recent turmoil over the Big 12 less Nebraska and Colorado reminds me of the same.  The Lubbock market reports all its Texas Tech politicians, administrators and big names saved the Big 12.

The Waco market reports all its Baylor politicians, administrators and big names saved the Big 12.

The Bryan-College Station market reports all its Aggie politicians, administrators and big names saved the big 12.

The Austin market reports all its Longhorn politicians, administrators and big names saved the Big 12.

If I pick the key name in all of this crowd,  it comes down to one: Mack Brown.  Mack Brown decided what he wanted to do, and everyone else trailed in his wake.  

 Still, as my closest friend commented, "Nothing like football to bring a bunch of politicians together."
