Texas AD tries to spin truth round like a record right round.

In an interview with Harry Plumer of The Columbia Missourian, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds tried to defend his schools actions in regard to its actions in the past two years that have led to the chaotic onslaught of realignment in the NCAA FBS division.  Instead he came off like OJ Simpson proclaiming his innocence while claiming to be was looking for the real killers.

"We have stuck our neck out to save the Big 12, and we're not a bully," Dodds said. "We didn't cause it. Our goal has been, and continues to be, to keep something together for the Big 12 and that's what we're going to do, good Lord willing."

Oh wait, it gets better. Listen to Dodds trying to justify the creation of The Longhorn Network, one of the final straws that led to Texas A&M leaving the Big 12 for the SEC.

"Nobody was interested in it until Fox came up and said, 'We'll give you $3 million a year to do it.' And we were elated with that. We thought, 'Crap, they're going to pay for it. They're going to pay us, the kids get on TV, this is great,'" Dodds said. "Then ESPN walked in and said we'll give you an average of $15 million a year. And then it became a problem."

Dodds then proceed to  claim that he was not a crook, had never had sexual relations with that woman, and that these aren't the droids you were looking for.
