SEC gets Bedlam and TX plays OU, OK ST and Tx AM every three years as part of ACC/SEC rivalry weekend. Just have a feeling B10 will not allow this to happen.

The academic powers that be, if Oklahoma was going to leave the Big 12, they'd way rather go to the Pac 12. There's not a lot of enthusiasm for the SEC on the academic side. I think they look at the Pac 12 as a way to enhance their academic reputation. SEC is about the same as the Big 12. Big 12 used to be better and then the SEC got two of the better academic institutions from the Big 12 and sort of tilted it. But I think they'd rather be in a league with Stanford and Cal and UCLA than in a league with Mississippi State or Georgia.

CLOSE CALL

In retrospect, the PAC12 turning down OU and OSU might very well be the dumbest decision of the realignment era. Holy crap, what were they thinking?

Tramel has always been a Boren mouthpiece.

the boren you cynically deride is none other than ou's president ...

they turned them down on both academic and market issues.

The population of the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex is 7,233,323 according to the 2016 U.S. Census, making it the largest metropolitan area in Texas, the largest in the South, the fourth-largest in the United States, and the tenth-largest in the Americas.

So the SEC isn't in a bad position on this one if they offer the pair. The question is will we want to offer the pair. ESPN talking heads have buzzed that we will for 2 years now with Finebaum putting his stamp on it this past Spring.

This time around the PAC can't afford them. Both Oklahoma and Okie State make more than the PAC schools, by about 6 million plus T3 which puts OU about 10-11 million ahead of them.

it bodes much better for Texas to consider the ACC.

if a desperate pac reconsiders ...
there won't be a big12 as we know it ...

TRIGGER HAPPY

I know. He announced his retirement late last year and it will be essentially effective in June.
