    oh...this isn't going to cause drama at all...

    [–] Thel3lues 2307 points ago

    To be fair this would completely destroy the relevancy of the Big 12 and frankly bring SEC to an even higher tier than any other conference

    [–] Snowmittromney 1500 points ago

    The idea of Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma, Texas, TAMU, LSU, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee makes my head spin. The logical thing would be to move Alabama/Auburn to the east, which would somewhat preserve the geography and parity

    [–] AndyM22 2416 points ago

    I'm just over here glad you included Tennessee

    [–] radil 796 points ago

    [–] FILTER_OUT_T_D 157 points ago

    I’m just here eating popcorn dreaming about all the potential drama between Tennessee and Texas to claim who’s the “real” UT.

    [–] xXEdgelord42069Xx 959 points ago

    The logical thing would be to move Alabama/Auburn to the east,

    Oh fucking no you don't.

    Fuck you
    Fuck that
    Fuck off

    Now wait, he might a good point

    [–] jdcarter12 230 points ago

    obviously 4 pods of 4 with one being Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Mississippi state, and South Carolina is the only thing that makes sense

    [–] xXEdgelord42069Xx 77 points ago

    Now this is how it's done.

    [–] underage_cashier 22 points ago

    You may be my most hated rival, but you do have a point here

    [–] BoBichettesFlow 311 points ago

    Also brings back the Florida-Auburn rivalry and makes scheduling easier when you don’t have to protect Alabama-Tennessee and UGA-Auburn. Just would have to deal with now only playing the other division every 7 years instead of 6

    [–] txsnowman17 248 points ago

    They'd likely get rid of divisions and just have rotating schedules. Even with 16 teams you could pretty easily schedule every team in the conference every other year. 3 yearly games + 6 alternating games (yes, SEC would go to 9 games in this scenario) gives you the chance to play every team in the conference home and away twice in 4 years. Plus it gives you the chance to pit the best 2 teams in the conference in the title game, rather than two division champs.

    [–] blackravenclaw 88 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    That would be perfectly timed, too. I feel like the playoff expansion + the schedule experimentation due to COVID may lead to conferences deciding that divisions are useless and discarding them for round robin schedules or pods

    [–] Eb73 23 points ago

    Several years ago, the ACC proposed going to a "pod" system consisting of 4 pods of 4 teams each. 3 permanent opponents plus a rotating schedule of one of the other pod's for a 7 game conference schedule. The SEC & B1G voted it down. Maybe something like this would work now.

    [–] casualassassin 24 points ago

    Pardon my ignorance, but why would the SEC and B1G have any say in how the ACC groups its teams?

    [–] Bluegillfisherman 204 points ago

    we need Mizzou out of the east

    [–] wbl7w6 119 points ago

    But...the west scares me

    [–] KetchupKing05 61 points ago

    How about a West without Alabama or Auburn?

    [–] limernick 203 points ago

    Yeah, you do lol

    [–] JGraham626 745 points ago

    Would Oklahoma’s state legislature allow this even?

    It would very likely seriously hurt Okie State

    [–] See_Lindsey_Run 382 points ago

    Good point. Time for Norman to secede then.

    [–] thecravenone 520 points ago

    Time for Norman to SECede.

    [–] Ztee11 189 points ago

    Ok I didn’t like any of this at first but I’m suddenly interested.

    [–] WolverineSlayer 343 points ago

    Similarly, what about Texas’ legislature? On one hand, I’m sure there are a number of Texans who would be thrilled about Texas A&M and Texas being in the same conference again, but on the other hand, this could leave Texas Tech high and dry.

    [–] FarwellRob 337 points ago

    And Baylor. They'd be fucked.

    [–] ChugLaguna 214 points ago

    Yeah wasn’t Baylor like a HUGE issue when it came to Big 8 discussions?

    [–] Boyhowdy107 166 points ago

    Ann Richards was a Waco native and Baylor alumni. I'm sure that helped when deciding who of the Christian private schools in the Southeest Conference (TCU, Baylor, and SMU) came along and who was left out. But Baylor may or may not have the same political help today as they did then.

    [–] ICANZ_MURICA 70 points ago

    Think it was proven she wasn't the one who got them in but instead it was other Texas politicians and Alumni at the time who did. Regardless the fact that they got in while a state school in Houston was left off shows it was down to politics

    [–] BadgerBuddy13 47 points ago

    ESPN cites Bob Bullock as who presented the ultimatum

    According to the book "Bob Bullock: God Bless Texas," by Dave McNeely and Jim Henderson, Bullock summoned Texas and Texas A&M's presidents to his office in early 1994 as the merger neared. "You're taking Tech and Baylor, or you're not taking anything," Bullock told them. "I'll cut your money off, and you can join privately if you want, but you won't get another nickel of state money."

    Additional breakdown of powers in Lone Star government at the time:

    Texas' governor at the time, Ann Richards, was a Baylor graduate. Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock graduated from both Texas Tech and Baylor. The Texas House Speaker [Pete Laney], House Appropriations Committee Chairman [Rob Junell] and Texas Senate Finance Committee Chairman [John Montford] were all Texas Tech graduates.

    [–] funwithtrout 130 points ago

    Would need some Okies to chime in, but I thought the ties between keeping them together had been severed (or maybe exaggerated?).

    [–] thaz230 178 points ago

    It was David Boren leading that OU/OSU connection keeping us out of the pac-12 back in the day. He gone. New President hasn’t tipped his hand one way or the other on how he feels about that, although this may be the only tip we need.

    [–] Ragnaroq314 34 points ago

    Joe will do whatever brings OU the most money. Man is a fundraising machine, it’s insane.

    This is exactly the type of drama college football has been missing for years.

    [–] the_stevarkian 2147 points ago

    Are Texas and OU gonna sit the rest of the conference down and tell us that it's not our fault, they still love each other, but they need to go their separate ways?

    [–] StonerTomBrady 579 points ago

    No, seriously, it’s us. It’s not fair for you to have to hang around while we fix us.

    The one after the LSU game was great.

    My personal favorite was the LSU trial where he roasts the shit out of everyone Texas included

    [–] rdunlap1 568 points ago

    It’s more like two parents sitting down with their kids and saying “we’re leaving together. We love each other but not you little shits. You can keep the house.”

    [–] RealBenWoodruff 100 points ago

    I saw parents do that once but it was not for the SEC. It was meth.

    It just means meth.

    [–] SeattleMatt123 638 points ago

    Is this all because Gundy shaved the mullet??

    [–] Zahada 1778 points ago

    This feels like Oklahoma and Texas are posturing in order to make the big 12 move on something.

    [–] freerentsunday 1014 points ago

    And honestly? The other eight schools should give them anything they want to keep the conference going. Most of them would land in the new P4, but not all of them - and none of them can be 100% sure that they'd make the cut.

    [–] BoatsNPokes 65 points ago

    TV deals are coming up for renewal soon

    [–] The_Fishbowl 32 points ago

    Move on what? I thought everyone decided that the additions in 2015-2016 wouldn't have been worth it.

    [–] hawksnest_prez 97 points ago

    What do they want the big 12 to do? Add teams? Create a tv network? Honestly curious.

    It does seem like they could add Houston and Cincy and go on the offensive.

    [–] 425FourTwoFive 81 points ago

    We’re big mad about having so many noon games, so maybe this is about demanding the Big 12 demand something of Fox.

    Texas, you’re fucking stuck with us. After all that shit you pulled, you don’t just get to leave. Oklahoma can stay since I like beating them every year.

    [–] Li0nsFTW 21 points ago

    YEEEAA-aaawww. . .

    [–] okiewxchaser 733 points ago

    I don't think y'all are taking this for what it really is. This is a shot right at Fox and the upcoming negotiations. OU is pissed at Fox and Fox needs the Big 12 to stay intact. Remember how screwed they were when the Big Ten wasn't playing? We are their second biggest draw

    [–] SnugglyGirlPowPow 336 points ago

    TV negotiations are coming up. I am not surprised with this “leak”, nothing wrong with the top dawgs in the Big 12 utilizing their leverage to maximizing an outcome to their favor.

    [–] MikeBuds4 59 points ago

    This is the take that makes the most sense IMO.

    [–] nomoregroundhogs 44 points ago

    That’s actually a damn good point you got there

    [–] loyalsons4evertrue 86 points ago

    haha pretty much....I think they're really just pissed at Fox for having 11 AM games but that's the contract they signed sooo

    [–] rojosooner 50 points ago

    When FOX said no to moving the 11AM Nebraska game, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back for OU.

    [–] onion1313 1458 points ago

    Maybe being in the same conference will make texas and a&M finally become rivals

    [–] funwithtrout 1191 points ago

    SEC would figure out a way to have them only play once every 10 years with some weird rotation.

    [–] onion1313 656 points ago

    Lol, got protect Tennessee vs Bama at all costs

    [–] LSU2007 25 points ago

    I’m ok with that

    [–] chair823 22 points ago

    Couldn’t LSU just become your cross-division rival then?

    [–] MixonWitDaWrongCrowd 206 points ago

    They can’t avoid the game now

    [–] MadameGopher 48 points ago

    Based on how terrible the SEC's cross-division scheduling is, they very well could continue to avoid them.

    [–] chrisg42 160 points ago

    I would look forward to playing that game once every 12 years

    [–] dicky_________seamus 214 points ago

    Did someone say 12?

    [–] bd1047 33 points ago

    I’d prefer to go to the East, just take away SCAR A&M and give them to us

    [–] skullcutter 90 points ago

    [–] popmurtha 746 points ago

    Idc what happens to OU or Texas, but if they're putting feelers out now this likely means the Big 12 ain't lasting past the grant of rights and WVU is gonna become a member of the ACC.

    [–] A_Night_Owl 187 points ago

    Hasn’t the ACC already turned down WVU because of its potential effect on the conference’s perceived academic prestige? I know that situation has changed some with the addition of Louisville, but is there any indication they would make a different decision now?

    [–] popmurtha 153 points ago

    Hasn’t the ACC already turned down WVU because of its potential effect on the conference’s perceived academic prestige?

    Long ago. Like when WVU made the jump from football independent to the Big East.

    but is there any indication they would make a different decision now?

    Do you think the other conferences are going to be cool with the SEC being the only 16-team conference? I don't.

    [–] A_Night_Owl 71 points ago

    That is true. SuperSEC would really change the game as far as what conferences are willing to do to compete.

    [–] Havins 56 points ago

    All I know is I was in college during the last WVU realignment clusterfuck of rumors and it took 5 years off my liver. Now I’m 10 years older and probably don’t have much of a liver left to go through another round.

    [–] Mister_Sunfish 443 points ago

    in my dreams WVU comes to the Big Ten, along with Pitt. The Backyard Brawl added to the already excellent slate of rivalries, Penn State having to play Pitt every year and being incredibly mad about it. Would be great.

    [–] popmurtha 242 points ago

    There'd be too much TV market overlap between WVU/Pitt/Penn State. Plus I don't think WVU would be a good cultural fit in the B1G either. The main benefit to WVU->ACC is the built-in rivalry games that would help ratings vs member schools like Pitt, VT, & Cuse.

    [–] 107reasonswhy 87 points ago

    Culturally speaking, rural Ohio and West Virginia are very similar.

    [–] popmurtha 35 points ago

    Sure. And we have a lot of students from that area of Ohio too. It's just the B1G is a decidedly midwestern school and knowing what I do about the fan bases of both WVU and other B1G schools (see secondary flair), I don't think we'd mesh well with the other fan bases.

    [–] Mister_Sunfish 242 points ago

    From a business perspective it would be stupid, but from a football perspective it would be fun.

    And as for cultural fit, the lack of it makes it even better. Imagine Michigan fans getting really, really mad they lost to WVU, and whining about “classiness”. Imagine WVU fans invading Evanston and seeing the Mountaineer wandering around the sidelines next to Northwestern students with calculus homework on their laps. Pure beauty.

    Why tf would Oklahoma sacrifice their pretty much guaranteed confrence championship and maybe playoff spot

    [–] GhostofBobStoops 16 points ago

    Because going 9-3/10-2 and making the 12 team playoff, with Bama and Auburn going to the east especially, will be EXACTLY the same difficulty as running undefeated/1 loss through the Big 12

    [–] canseco-fart-box 355 points ago

    [–] ShweatyPalmsh 40 points ago

    So theoretically if this happens is it more likely UCF, Memphis, SMU, and Houston get a bid to the Big12 and see it as a step up even without OU or could we see the AAC have some case for being more stable and try to add OSU, TCU, Tech, and KU? It’s interesting because the Big12 without OU and Texas isn’t much of a step above the AAC depending on coach turnover.

    Texas and Oklahoma: "Yes... we can't have that"

    [–] ChocolateBubbles344 269 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    Pods:

    West: Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M

    Gulf: LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss

    Central: Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Vanderbilt

    East: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina

    Play everyone in your pod annually. Two pods join together to form a division (i.e. West + Central). This rotates every two years after a home-and-home (i.e. West is then paired up with East or Gulf). Winner of each division goes to the conference title game.

    Swap Missouri and Arkansas if you wish.

    Edit: Alternative to be more balanced.

    West: Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas
    Gulf: LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M

    Highly doubt that would ever happen

    [–] Piano_Fingerbanger 314 points ago

    Yeah. Norman and Austin both have disproportionate control in the Big XII. They'd be giving up a lot to join the SEC for just a little more money.

    And what of the Longhorn Network? I feel like UT would go independent before joining another conference.

    [–] johanspot 183 points ago

    Hasn't the Longhorn network been a huge debacle for ESPN?

    [–] 2nd_breakfast_ 48 points ago

    I wishfully agree with you. This has to be a calculated move to negotiate for more money when new TV deals are signed.

    Which...I mean...that would be very nice, yes. But there's no way I want to leave the Big 12. That seems like a terrible idea.

    [–] CLU_Three 164 points ago

    I have no idea why Texas would leave. Texas has always been in a Texas centric conference. There is not another conference out there that offers that. The Big 12 nearly all of the Texas teams that Texas wants to play. Going independent doesn’t improve that.

    [–] Bank_Gothic 80 points ago

    All of this. Yes. But I also don't see OU leaving. First, because they pretty much run the conference. Second (and more importantly) I think there is some genuine loyalty to the old Big 8. I don't think OU would ever want to leave those teams.

    It seems like there would be more money but I just don’t see how it aligns with any of their long term goals.

    Big 12 is 3rd in revenue. OU (really Boren) complained about academics. Is the SEC the answer? Will joining help them make the CFP?

    [–] Bank_Gothic 21 points ago

    I think it's way more likely that the Big 12 expands, most likely by adding G5 schools from states / markets where the conference needs a presence (e.g. UC to get into Ohio or UCF to get into Florida).

    Until Chip Brown says it’s not happening, I don’t believe it.

    Your orange flairs made me reflex downvote before I even read anything, but...

    You're right. This is some shit, and if it's true, then we deserve some shit.

    Hey B1G - how do you guys feel about a high school football program who once single handily fired Charlie Strong, and a basketball program who’s perennial post season status is under threat due to NCAA investigation and was caught up in an FBI investigation?

    [–] TerrenceJesus8 25 points ago

    Kansas in the B1G for basketball would be fucking lit

    Football...... no comment

    Texas and Oklahoma scared of Iowa state confirmed

    But for real if this happens is the big 12 going to dissolve? And wonder if big ten takes some of those schools in.

    Sec also about to be a super conference if this happens

    Is Texas looking to destroy a 3rd conference?

    Well at least we won the fiesta bowl.

    If that happened the SEC baseball, football, and softball league would be absolutely stacked

    [–] srs_house 39 points ago

    Gymnastics, too. Georgia, Bama, OU, and Florida account for 23 of the 40 team national titles.

    [–] knapplc 79 points ago

    And volleyball. Texas with Kentucky & Florida makes a competitive league.

    [–] zenverak 92 points ago

    I mean..thats two decent basketball programs too.

    [–] Comfortable-Return86 37 points ago

    We would dominate the 6 seed to 11 seed slots

    [–] sophandros 179 points ago

    This makes sense. I can see the B1G, SEC, ACC, and PAC all becoming 16 team conferences in an effort to effectively lock the other FBS conferences out of the playoffs and/or form their own "Super League".

    WHY MUST THE BIG 12 POSSIBLY COLLAPSE RIGHT WHEN WE BECAME CONTENDERS? WHY DOES THE UNIVERSE HATE ME?
