    Inviting harmless TexasU opens that recruiting State giant to the Southern schools.

    "Conference les" are meaningless. Schools in America will showcase different conferences from different sports in their trophy case & history books. What a mess.

    College sports is nose diving quick. People clenching to their moneybag. Take off to the other side of the country.

    Actually, SEC has been recruiting Texas for years. Texas going to the SEC will have ALOT of top rated recruits wanting to stay home and play there.

    not sure about that; i think there are still going to be a lot of kids that are going to leave the state. saben already planted that seed when he was boasting about how much money their starting QB has already made-and the season hasn't even started yet.

    I'm pretty pumped since the news broke on Wed. For casual fans it will make watching UT football a lot more appealing. Just think of the weekly matchups we'll get in 2022:

    Texas v LSU
    Texas v Georgia
    Texas v Florida
    Texas v Tennessee (who's the real UT)
    Texas v Auburn

    And bringing back the Arkansas rivalry if Texas is in their same SEC pod.
    No more Kansas, Baylor, TCu, and Iowa State game to bore the tears out of us casuals.

    Iron sharpens iron. Texas is a sleeping beast and best case the move will lead to the Horns fighting for les yearly.

    We all know this move is about football, and Alabama is the undisputed king in the SEC.

    The 8 power teams in the SEC could play a round-robin and be the most compelling product in college football.

    To the Texas fans, what's your ideal divisional setup? Which of the other 7 powers do you want to compete with in your 8 team division?

    I know Missouri is currently in the SEC East so geography isn't playing too big of a role.

    I'd seed the 8 powers and divide them evenly ala a playoff bracket.

    1, 4, 5, and 8 in one division and 2, 3, 7, 8 in the other.

    1) Alabama
    2) Oklahoma
    3) Georgia
    4) Texas
    5) LSU
    6) A&M
    7) Florida
    8) Auburn

    Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, and the MS schools are pretty much even in power rating.
    South Carolina, UK, and Vandy are the poor homecoming sisters.

    Imagine if the PAC invites Houston over TCU and Baylor because it's a public school that taps that market

    If academics didn't play such a vital role I think UH and Tech would be the Texas duo to add to the Pac 10.

    You would get the steady football program at Tech and a their recent Final Four basketball program, and plant a flag in the biggest city.
    If they choose to go to 16, Ok State and any combo of Nevada, UNM, K-State.

    Few, if any of the Big XII will get life preservers from other P5 conferences. Any additions would look pathetic compared to the SEC landing Texas/OU. Kansas will end up in the Big East probably.
    The PAC-12 itself is in grave danger. With its TV deal expiring after 2023, and a low likelihood that a new deal would be compe ive with the SEC and B1G, you could see Washington, Oregon, USC, and Utah bolt for the B1G.

    If your team isn’t in the SEC or B1G, and isn’t already a national brand and/or revenue powerhouse, then it’s going to be left out of the College Football League that will supersede the FBS.

    Honestly, if I'm the PAC and I wanted two teams from Texas (besides UT and Aggy of course) then I'd want Tech and Houston.

    Maybe TCU but definitely not Baylor. but that's just me. No telling at all at this point what happens.

    Itís hard to accept if youíre a fan of one of the leftovers, but itís over for them as major college football programs. UT and OU were subsidizing all the other schools. The PAC-12 already has its own parasitic dependencies, like Wazzu, Oregon State, and Cal. They arenít going to add teams just for the sake of adding teams. The paradigm of ten years ago of expanding geographical reach in order to get the conference network on more cable systems doesnít apply anymore.

    The PAC-12 is not stable. Only a handful of schools generate significant revenue, enough to compete nationally. Stanford is dropping varsity sports left and right. Colorado is flailing. So is UCLA. These are not historically the Little Sisters of the Poor, but they are now. The TV contract that seemed pretty good several years back makes them an also-ran now. They havenít put a team in the playoff in years, and even with a 12-team playoff, still theyíll likely only get one entrant. Starting games at 7:00 PM Pacific time hamstrings national viewership. Unless theyíre all content being the college football equivalent of the 1950ís Pacific Coast League, the big-money schools will leave for greener pastures. Congrats to Utah for elevating its program so quickly in so short a time to have a chance at the new top division.

    The cavalry isnít coming to save you. Tech is ed. Say o to the AAC and an 80% drop in TV revenue. I know youíll stay in denial, because the inevitable reality is bleak and you donít want to deal with it.

    , a big chunk of A&M fans are in denial too, even though Texas/OU is a done deal. Most of the rest are pissed as , even though the SEC is setting up A&M in a catbird seat where it gets an easy pod (LSU/Ole Miss/MSU) and a situation where it goes to the playoff every year it can win 10 games, and sometimes when it only wins 9. But theyíd rather those they hate (ďt.u.Ē) be kept down, even if they themselves lose out in the process. I guess itís not surprising ó it is the South, after all.

    The remaining prizes in College Football realignment are:
    Notre Dame
    USC
    Clemson
    Florida State
    Miami
    Washington
    Oregon

    The other teams with a good shot of making it based upon revenue capacity are:
    Virginia
    North Carolina
    Louisville
    Utah

    Everyone else is probably ed. Yes, that includes formerly big-time programs like Pitt, Virginia Tech, UCLA, Georgia Tech, Colorado, and Stanford. Schools like Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Rutgers, and Indiana just have to hope they get grandfathered in as members of the only two conferences that survive. The new reality is that Alabama’s starting QB makes $1 million a year in NIL money. NFL Junior is already here. The teams that can’t keep up money-wise will all end up as mid-majors.

    The PAC doesn't think they're ed. I don't either.

    In fact, they think they're in great shape which is why they don't need Tech or anyone else at the moment.

    I wish they were in desperation ed mode like you're saying because then they might really need to add Texas teams.

    Best case for Tech is going to the PAC.
    Worst case is AAC.

    it sucks but I've made peace with either scenario.

    The B1G didn’t think it was important enough to get Texas/OU that they would overlook OU’s lack of AAU status. They don’t have vision. They are comfortable in the status quo. The people that run most of college athletics are bureaucrats, not businessmen. They lag behind for the exact same reasons that socialist economies lag behind capitalist ones. For all the credentials of the ruling class, they have no innovation. No drive to create value. They’re content to rule over their little fiefdoms.

    Two weeks most of the Big XII, including the commissioner, thought everything was fine, even though the asteroid was close to impact.

    Even if the PAC-12 knew it were doomed, how would adding Texas Tech and Houston improve the revenue picture? Is FOX going to increase payouts because the PAC-12 added the seventh- or eighth-most popular teams in the Dallas and Houston markets? Of course not. Those schools are just more mouths to feed.

    The only school I could see with any potential to add value to the PAC-12 is BYU. But they won’t do it because of the anti-religious sentiment of the West Coast schools.

    Their TV deal is up in 2023, and who knows what kind of leftover deal they will get after ESPN and FOX throw a ton of money at the SEC/B1G. I'd agree with ES here.
