  1. USC is just leveraging at this point unless the B1G doesn't care about the P12. I will assume that is true in this case and USC might get a concession from the P12 when it comes to conference payouts. OU & UT are pretty close to the Deep South region which all 14 SEC schools...maybe except Vandy and it's more of a natural fit than you would think. BU, TCU, TT, and OSU to Pac-12. This is something the P12 needs to do and doing this will get the P12 solidly into DFW. This will give the PAC a chance to survive any future moves. Getting only two will not be enough in this case. I don't think we will need Houston in this case because it is solidly in the hands of the SEC. KU & ISU to the B1G. This step will dissolve the Big 12 regardless of WVU going to the ACC first or after the B1G move since there are 8 schools that have moved and you need 75% to dissolve a Delaware corporation which the Big 12 is (and also many other conferences). WVU to the ACC. Bless their hearts for sticking out like this. KSU to AAC. Starting a rivalry with the Shockers of Witcha is something to look forward to. The Wildcats will not lose access to DFW this way. MWC is not the answer for them.
  2. Wait a minute...I think CFB is becoming more regional.
  3. College sports as we knew it is dead. For the rest of my time on earth, I'm going to just enjoy watching college sports regardless of conference afillation.
  4. SEC Presidents have scheduled vote this Thursday.
  5. It’s hard for many people to comprehend why those two schools still matter. Both are about 3 1/2 to 4 hours away from DFW. When I drove through the Texas panhandle to go to a funeral, I noticed more muscle cars with Texas plates especially Dodge Challengers & Chargers. It amazes me how smooth my 2017 Jeep Cherokee (under the same Fiat roof as Dodge) can drive even at 85-90 MPH. You can even drive that fast on I-35 from DFW to OKC. People from those states are conditioned for long drives.
  6. CU is definitely on the bubble in this case. But not all is lost. My favorite memories of CU were from its days in the Big 8 when TV didn't matter. That remains true even to this day. Just look at the Sun Belt...they are better in football than the C-USA which is more driven by population numbers. FCS football this spring showed me that you can get game of the week matchups and watch solid football. I'm going to dip my toes in the D2 football pool this fall and see some good D2 football games.
  7. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/college-football-realignment-fallout-whats-next-with-texas-oklahoma-stating-intent-to-leave-big-12-for-sec/ ASU, CU, USC, and UW to the B1G?
  8. Tried editing previous post. What I was going to say is that the rumors of a P12-B1G merger seems to have legs.
  9. I think we are heading that way already and I have been noticing this with CU's matchups with MWC teams since the Buffs switched conferences. I think it has been awhile since a MWC team beat Utah since the Utes joined the PAC. Without basketball, I'm guessing UA would have an instate rivalry with NAU. 😎
  10. OU is Oklahoma's NFL team and football is a cult in that state. I can only wish CU was in a similar spot.
  11. Do not undersell OU's ability to adapt to a new conference...they will find a way to pull it off in the SEC. Can't say the same thing about Texas although they will win their battles. But being the heel of the conference does have its advantages and Texas could really reap those advantages. Plus Missouri & aTm had good success against the SEC in their early years as SEC members and they were a step below OU & UT.
  12. It is important that the P12 gets into the Metroplex and Houston so TCU & Houston to the Pac-12 would be a done deal imo. OKSU-TT would be a good rivalry pair. Kansas & Baylor are too toxic to be considered at this point.
  13. For as successful as Oklahoma State has been of late, I can tell you that support within OK runs at least 90-10 in favor of the Sooners.
  14. Hate the idea of having to go back to masks.
