Asked for his opinion of the matter on Monday, Bohn said "Each institution's athletic director has to promote and market what's best for them."
Obviously Castiglione and Dodds are doing just that. The last two seasons, that formula would have put Texas playing Oklahoma in Norman for the championship. Instead, Colorado played, and lost, to Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game last season, while OU fell victim to Kansas State in 2003.
Bohn, who is in his first official week on the job in Boulder, and who will take part in his first meeting of Big 12 athletic directors later this month, said he's in favor of the current set up.
"In the short time I've been here I've recognized the importance of being able to compete for a conference championship out of our division," he said. "Being able to preserve that appears to make more sense in our instance."
For sure, the North/South matchup in the title game will be preserved through the 2007 season. That's when the length of the league's current TV contract for the game with ABC.
