They won't play in the SEC this year, but it could be announced sometime soon. The Big 12 owns Texas and OU's media rights through the 2024 season, so 2025 would be the first year of playing unless the Big 12 dissolves or Texas and OU want to pay the remaining members a boatload of money.

I'm cheap. $500.00 is rich for my blood. $100 that Texas and OU join the SEC by the 2025 season.

I think it will be announced this year, but they won't start playing in the conference for a couple of years at least.

Zwerneman is a pretty good journalist. He isn't making it up and he isn't running something without a corroborating source. Inside Texas, the best Texas $9.95 site confirmed the story independently also.

Now, that doesn't mean it is definitely happening, but they have definitely had talks.

Lol, it’s a taunting penalty and only a penalty when using said gesture if taunting. That’s on the Big 12 rules committee. Players don’t give a ****.

Sorta like Mike Davis holstering the pistols, then getting flagged.

The current decision makers at Texas are very, very different than any of the previous regimes. The SEC makes the most geographical and economic sense. Many of the arguments arguments against joining the SEC the Aggies have made moot by joining the SEC and changing the recruiting landscape in Texas.

This was probably inevitable since A&M left the Big 12.

The state political landscape has changed enough that Texas doesn't have to drag schools along with it.

The biggest reason that this happens is that ESPN controls the money in college football. This is what they want.

Bingo.

Moves were made years ago in preparation for expansion today. The Big 12 had its chance to go grab some great teams (ACC or PAC) and give itself a seat at the Super conference table. Once they failed to do that, the writings on the wall for this to happen. They failed to have the vision for the future and now the TV rights are coming to an end so it’s heating up again.

For the record, I love realignment and the business side of college athletics.

You can probably trace it back even further when DeLoss pitched the Big 12 starting their own network and everyone voting him down. That is when Texas started working on the LHN.

Correct. LHN was created so Texas didn’t jump ship on conferences thus gave ESPN control of Texas.

Texas took the money.

The LHN contract announcement is what pushed the Aggies into leaving and thus starting up that round of realignment. ESPN actually only has third tier rights for the LHN, not second. At the time, Nebraska and Oklahoma were pulling down 10-12 million per year for their 3rd tier rights (mainly through pay-per-view and regional deals) and Texas had one of the lowest third tier rights numbers because almost none of their games were available for third tier because they were getting picked up by the first and second tier rights holders.

ESPN was all in on the LHN because it was a pilot project for their bigger target, the SEC Network and because $15 million per year was chump change at the time for ESPN/Disney.

What ESPN did to keep Texas in the conference was to guarantee the Big 12's contract would not shrink when A&M and Mizzou left, so that the remaining teams yearly share increased. Since the legislator had blocked Texas from going to the Pac 12, they decided they'd wait it out until the next round of realignment. Which, of course, turned out to be a horrible move.

I want this to happen just to see the melt from the Aggie’s. It would be epic. If for some reason Texas wouldn’t joint I think OU and Okie state would be a good fit also. Both compete in football, baseball, softball and basketball.

They’d be selling selling them on the sec the day they joined. How would they not? It would be the strongest and most powerful conference ever.

So how would the schedules work in a 16 team SEC? No more 8 conference games and 4 cream puffs? 7 division games and 4 cross division with only 1 non conference game? Or only 1 cross division and 4 ooc? 7-2-3?

So…Does the Big 12 suck? Last year the party line was “it’s a great conference! Iowa State is a power house!” Why would OU and Texas want to join the SEC? Is it the best conference? What do you Horn fans say? Aggies are happy where we are, y’all wanna join us? Drop your boring network that shows the same 6 games over and over, then forget your “home game of choice” on Thanksgiving. It would make for an amazing and fun conference no doubt! Take your stance now Sooners and Horns…Which conference do you want to be in and why?
