"Our announcement in December has caused institutions and conferences to consider their futures, and that has had an impact on our deliberations."
“We did not start this,” Dodds told The Kansas City Star in response to questions put to him Tuesday afternoon in the lobby of the InterContinental Hotel on the Plaza. “If we need to finish it, we’ll finish it. We’re going to be a player in whatever happens.”
Asked directly about criticism of Missouri and Nebraska within the Big 12, Dodds denied either school was being disloyal.
“Everybody stays ready,” said Dodds, the head of the Big 12‘s most successful and powerful athletic program. “Everybody figures out what’s best for them and get options."
That includes Texas, Dodds said.
“We’re watching what’s happening with the Big Ten, probably to a lesser degree to the Southeast Conference,” Dodds said. “If the landscape is going to change, we’re going to be a part of it and be a viable part of it. Texas will come out of it in good shape.”
It seems the question most asked, though, is how the school could possibly deny the one that it didn't own up to - that Rodriguez "failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance within the football program.'' After all, if the university admits to four major rules violations, isn't the fifth one obvious?
Well, of course it is. Here's the sticking point, though. If the school admits that Rodriguez failed to promote that atmosphere of compliance, it can hardly argue that the more specific violations were merely mistakes or errors in judgment. In an atmosphere of non-compliance, the commission of those violations would portray Rodriguez's program as out of control.
Ah, but if Michigan steadfastly stands behind Rodriguez and maintains that he was at all times trying to run a clean program - i.e., promoting an atmosphere of compliance - well, then all of those other issues can be explained away with that simple, "Oops.''
