Zenger Provides Commentary on Big 12 Membership

Sept. 3, 2011

Dr. Sheahon Zenger, Kansas Athletics Director met with the media at halftime of the Kansas-McNeese State football game. Below are part of his comments to those in attendance.

Zenger about Big 12 Conference membership:
“Friday’s news from Oklahoma was disappointing, particularly since we believed we had nine strong commitments to the Big 12 Conference. It is premature to comment further because we really don’t know much more at this time. The University of Kansas continues to believe that the best option for everyone involved is a strong Big 12 Conference with its current membership. But Chancellor (Bernadette) Gray-Little and I are in constant communication and will continue to discuss all of our options and will do what is in the best interest in the University of Kansas.”
