Texas Tech's Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt joined the Williams & Hyatt show Thursday afternoon to discuss the Big 12 conference.

Among the topics discussed were "what message Hocutt would like to get out to Texas Tech Fans", and who should the conference target.

Hocutt emphasized the need for strength and stability, so the conference wasn't back at the negotiating table come this time next year.

"We've got to get to a much stronger place, with a longer term commitment," Hocutt said.

He also talked about the latest news regarding Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe.
