Longwhorn Conference schools grubbing shamelessly for every penny? I'm shocked, sir. Shocked.

Honestly, I doubt this is nothing more than supply and demand. The Big XII does have passionate fans, somewhere between the Big Ten and the SEC, but many of their stadiums are kinda small. Of those top five, only Texas has a truly large stadium. (105K) The cotton bowl is midsized at 95K (for that game anyway) Tech and OSU stadiums are in the 55K range. Big games, small areas, high ticket prices.

This also makes one think that the upcoming TV contracts for the Pac 10 are going to be underwhelming. CF just doesn't generate interest.
