Dan Jenkins didn’t think he’d ever see it, but the news breaking today that TCU is likely joining the Big 12 had him almost giddy.
“I think it’s great. It’s great for fans, it’s great for Fort Worth and for TCU,” said Jenkins, the legendary sports writer who played golf at TCU. “I never thought we’d get back there. I think Gary has won our way back there.”
Jenkins said there are no negatives for TCU joining the Big 12, “except it’s going to be tough to win” as much as TCU has the last decade.
“It’s going to be a tough league, but financially it’s a no-brainer," he said. “Congratulations all the way around. I think it’s worth celebrating. Students should be dancing in the quad."
