The Big 12 is doing something other conferences should copy

Often in life we find there aren't enough hours in the day, and 15 of those days happen to land on fall Saturdays. There are only so many games that can be watched in the 12 afternoon and evening hours of game day.

The Big 12 knows this, and they're doing something about it.

Last season, the conference, in partnership with the Fox Sports regional networks within the league's footprint, launched Big 12 No Huddle, boiling down a three-and-a-half hour football broadcast into less than 50 minutes. They take the no huddle thing seriously. Fox airs Big 12 No Huddle in a one-hour telecast on its regional networks within Big 12 country and, for those outside the conference footprint or not in front of a television, puts them on YouTube as well. 

If you missed the game or want to scout a future opponent, Big 12 fans can now do so on your lunch break. Now why can't every conference do this?
