Looking like PAC 12 for Tech if rumors are true but who knows. Not being that competitive in football makes the sting a lot less lol.

Money aside, that neither is bleeding for, I hope OU is ready for 7-5 seasons as the norm and for UT... haha well nothing changes for them except a few more spots further back on the bus. Never seen two fan bases, especially UT, so eager and happy to get their teeth kicked in hahaha. It is going to be funny seeing UT expect all the favorable treatment the Big 12 gave them then getting backhanded by the SEC and bent over by Bama. Careful what you wish for boys!

I couldn't keep up with this thread, so it may have already been said:

The SEC doesn't really have a choice but to take Texas and OU. They've made it clear they want out of the B12, and the risk of them joining another, competing conference is too great for the SEC. Texas and OU in the Big10 would diminish the SEC's dominance a lot (I'm not sure the Big10 would allow OU in for academic reasons - it would make OU and Nebraska the only schools in the conference not in AAU).

No matter your opinion on the schools, the SEC would be foolish not to vote UT/OU in. As a UT alumn who travels to road games, I would prefer the Big10, but there's no doubt the SEC is the current powerhouse and I'd be happy to be a part of the conference. I'd love to renew the rivalry with TAMU; not sure why they're so against this move.

Does this round of conference reshaping finally force ND football to play in conference?

Buddy that's pretty connected and usually in the know just texted and said it's a done deal. No shock but would be nice to see an official report.

I think their association with the ACC allows them to stay independent until there is a pressure to go to a Super League with 4 leagues with 16 teams. If ND joins a conference the ACC has their rights. I think they are the last one to jump in the boat and they are going to let this play out.

If the playoff goes to 12 teams, I would think that Notre Dame has more reasons to stay independent.

Probably so.

I would rather have the SEC pick up Texas, leave OK out, and poach Va. Tech from the ACC, but that’s for
selfish reasons. An A&M vs. Va. Tech game at Lane would give me a no doubt reason to go back for a visit.

Oh wow…. A&M left out of the discussions? That’s not a lot of respect shown for the SEC west 2nd place champion.

And I’m extremely entertained

You think that A&M is currently ahead of OU as a program? They went 8-1 last year. OU is a national championship favorite this year. Why would they be 7-5? They would skull drag Arkansas, Ole Miss, Miss State, Auburn and all of the east teams except Georgia and Florida. Seems as if you are disgruntled. Jealous maybe.

Won't Texas get the same recruiting boost A&M did? Being that they already have top 10 classes wouldn't that boost elevate them to Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State tertitory? Like 4-6 5 star guys each year?

I heard the Pac 12 may frown upon the academic standards of Tech, TCU and Oklahoma State.

It more than likely depending on the other teams in the Big 12. If 2-3 more teams jump ship, the Big 12 is dissolved and they would start in 2022 season. If the Big 12 tries to hold it together, then you are looking at the 2024 season unless there is some sort of buy out / exit fee. I can't see the SEC / Texas / OU giving the Big 12 much a life line; however, they are going to want to get these two teams in the league as soon as possible in my opinion.

I can not see Texas / OU in the Big 12 for several years knowing they are jumping ship. These road games are going to be fun.

Haha how can you speak on academics when you didn't even go to UT??? And jealous? How so and why? Jealous we aren't going to take a back seat to way better programs when we claim to be the best? Jealous that no matter what you do, you will not beat bama or win a SEC championship? Jealous that we didn't ruin a conference bc of greed and ran off many schools over the last 10 years then flee to a new conference? Jealous that we had to swallow our pride on a failed network we insisted on and now have to fall back in line with reality that we aren't as good as we thought and aren't "Back" ? I'm confused why you think this? UT couldn't win in the Big 12 and you think they are magically gonna win now in a harder conference? You sound just like Aggies trying to brag about being in a conference and boasting the achievements of the other schools to boost themselves.

So yea definitely not jealous in any way shape or form. Everyone is trying to get to the same playoff. Yall just taking a harder road.

Depends if the remaining 8 hold together or fall apart, if they hold alliance they can drag this out and make it more painful for UT/OU and from notes I heard from last nights meeting that's the way its going right now. Make no doubt UT and OU want teams to start jumping ship to other P5 conferences, they wouldn't have to pay the grant of right penalty millions if the conference dissolved. Problem is I don't think its worth it to the PAC, BIG or ACC to take on any of the remaining teams as that only strengthens UT and OU financially (no GOR penalties) which in turn strengthens SEC which the other conferences don't want to see.

Talking to an LSU alum at the gym this morning who is pretty close to the program. Don't believe everything you read on the twit and interwebs. tu might not get the votes needed according to his inside sources... and he rubs elbows with $ guys in BR. Trust me... i have to hear all kind of **** from this guy but he seems to know before it all comes out. He is pretty solid.

I know that contradicts the local experts here...

I’d assume they’d come to terms, so they could add quickly if they plan to survive. The AAC is watching closely.

It won’t matter if it’s the SEC, these two are gone.

But, I think this was done before the leak. Lol

Only the governor could stop it. But, somebody was hoping they could get the legislature involved.

I have a hard time believing that Texas / OU would not have the votes if they are this far down the path. If they filed for membership and are denied, I am sure there is some litigation that would come from that. I am sure there are guarantees in place.

I am hearing two different things. Texas is mediocre and Texas is a threat and shouldn't be in the voted in. You are telling me the SEC teams don't want a $15M increase in pay for a "7-5" team? Which way is it?

They do have leverage and don't have to make the jump. Their are options.

My alumni contacts from other SEC schools are saying the same thing. Majority rather take OU and OKst then TU. They are toxic and not wanted. We shall see.

On a side note, if this does happen fast... what happens to all the scheduled games under contract the next several years? Do majority of those games stay on schedule or is it one Big domino effect and everything gets canceled and new schedules?

Same thing with the Sark and Chris Beard hire. Its amazing the Texas Athletic Department has been so tight lipped on these moves. Over the years, that office had the loosest lips of anybody in the country. The Board, the Ad, and the President are all in step together and its a great thing to see. It gives me hope that things are truly turning around in Austin.

The SEC's vote will be 14-0 even if it's not 14-0.

This is from a huge SEC Texas hater. Lol

I am hearing two different things. Texas is mediocre and Texas is a threat and shouldn't be in the voted in. You are telling me the SEC teams don't want a $15M increase in pay for a "7-5" team? Which way is it?

They do have leverage and don't have to make the jump. Their are options.

Same. From the brand recognition and added income, I have a hard time believing they won’t get the votes.

Hopefully Texas can draw Bama as a cross division rival.

I imagine Abbott can't be happy this leaked. If he truly does have some power one way or another in this manner can't imagine he would want any reason to alienate Aggie, Baylor, TCU & Tech conservatives going into a tough primary.

But in all seriousness, without the money they bring, they would never be in discussion to join on merit alone. They are their own worst enemy.
