Less than a week after word first leaked that the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma were interested in leaving the Big 12 Conference
[See the full post at: Oklahoma, Texas Formally Apply For SEC Membership]
How long has this been marinating?
And who all were in the cooking?
And when did they know?
Did the other Big12 presidents know?
Did the other AD’s in the Big12 know?
Was the SEC in on the sneak attack?
Is it a “fait accompli” and the current actions by TUOU are nothing but smoke screens?
If so, what is their objective?
How do current TV contracts and their timings fit into the motives?
How do possible future TV contracts fit in?
How will future Playoffs be affected?
What’s the future structure of college football in terms of number of conferences and their size? And what’s the benefits?
Will there be just four super conferences?
Where does the NCAA fit in and why?
Where does WVU fit in?
Oklahoma and Texas remind me of Notre Dame. They pander their royalty and make conferences bow to get them inside the door, only partially in the Irish’s case with the ACC. I only care about where WVU ends up.
Wondering if they chose to get legal beagles involved and leave early
Wonder if SEC will go along with refs throwing a flag for Horns Down by an opposing player? SEC won’t kow-tow to Texas the way that the Big 12 has. More ridiculous penalty I’ve ever heard of.
Horns down flag may be a requirement by TX on entry to SEC.
All you kneed to know as the way is 4 letters…
