Irving, TX (WMC) -

One way or the other, the Memphis Tigers should get an answer to its Big 12 push by the end of the summer. That's the word from league commissioner Bob Bowlsby.

At the Big 12 meetings in Dallas, Bowlsby said he is going to push conference leaders to make decisions on the lingering issues of expansion, a football championship game, and a league network by the end of the summer.

Athletic directors spent about 90 minutes during the league's spring meetings in what were termed "philosophical discussions" about those topics.

The final decisions will be made by the 10-team league's board of directors comprised of school presidents and chancellors. 

That group, which includes three interim presidents, will join the conference meetings Thursday and Friday and will have a significant amount of data to consider this week and into the summer.
