Bob Bowlsby dodges question on his working relationship with SEC commissioner Greg Sankey
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby still has some hard feelings toward SEC commissioner Greg Sankey, it seems, especially after what took place between the 2 conferences earlier this season.
When both Big 12 power brokers Oklahoma and Texas decided to find greener pastures with the SEC, it left a bitter taste in Bowlsby’s mouth. Apparently, Bowlsby hasn’t forgotten nor forgiven Sankey, so when asked if the two will be working together on things pertaining to the College Football Playoff, Bowlsby said this:

“I don’t know if I’m prepared to get into that,” he said.
That doesn’t sound like he is over it yet. Bowlsby may not have a choice in the matter, so he may need to forgive Sankey sooner than later. Or, at the very least, find a way to work with the SEC commissioner.
