Big 12 championship game would come with pros and cons (Yahoo Sports)

The product of a messy merger between the Big Eight and the Southwestern Conference in the mid-1990s, the Big 12 is by far the youngest of the wealthiest FBS leagues. Fifteen years after it was born, the Big 12 was nearly killed by conference realignment and picked apart by other power conferences. While the other conferences grew and added championship games, the Big 12 survived by shrinking and getting rid of its title game. Once again, the Big 12 is looking to try something unique by holding a conference championship with only 10 teams.

Auburn defensive end Elijah Daniel has been suspended from the football team following his arrest with two other athletes on theft and burglary charges that police said Thursday resulted from an investigation into items missing from dormitory rooms after spring break. Coach Gus Malzahn issued a statement saying the 6-foot-2, 282-pound junior from Indianapolis, Indiana, is suspended indefinitely. Lee County jail records show Daniel was charged Wednesday with four counts of theft and four more counts of burglary. The most serious case against Daniel is first-degree theft, which involves property worth at least $2,500 or anything taken from another person.

It's safe to say new Thunder coach Billy Donovan will stay in the NBA this time. Donovan jokes that he has coached in the league before - eight years ago, he was hired by the Orlando Magic, only to change his mind the following day and return to the University of Florida. He said that decision had nothing to do with the Magic, and that it was more about his relationships with his family and Florida. The 49-year-old coach said it had to ''take something very, very special'' to make him leave a program he led to two national championships, four Final Fours and seven Elite Eights in 19 seasons.
