OK, maybe not so much the Dallas Cowboys owner himself, but one of his underlings has denied the report from Wednesday, which stated that Jerry Jones was stumping for both Arkansas and Notre Dame to become teams 11 and 12 in the Big 12 conference.
Cowboys vice president of public relations Rich Dalrymple told ESPNDallas.com that Jones had denied not only talking to Arkansas about a move to the Big 12, but also that he wanted the Irish to join as well.
However, the website reports that a source confirmed Wednesday night Jones’ interest in swiping the Razorbacks — his alma mater — from the SEC and pushing them into the Big 12.
At least publicly, the school itself is stating that they have no desire to leave the SEC.
Interesting, though, that Jones himself did not deny the interest, but rather let somebody else speak publicly for him in this situation. Hmmm…
