I doubt it...would kill the Big 12.
Also, doesn't Texas have the 'Longhorn Network' deal with ESPN/ABC - sure they would lose money if they walked out of that early.

But let's say for G&G this is true and it happens.
Do we realign the divisions?
If not, does Texas go to the West and OK go to the East?
Seems pretty far to travel for USCe to go to play OK every other year...
If so, do we keep the traditional E/W rivalries like TSIO?

Anyone want to venture a guess about how the divisions would be aligned??

Once again wee little Nicky gets whatever he wants.
9 conference games.
I predicted 10 years ago, we were headed to 4 super conferences of 20 teams each. would allow for more "playoff" teams..

Each conference would have 4 divisions of 5 teams each.

Each division winner would be in playoff to determine the 4 conference champions which would make up the final 4 playoff for the over all Champion.

Of course the same format would work with 4 conferences of 16 teams each.

With playoff expansion to 12 teams, it makes sense. A 3 loss SEC team could still get in. I'm sure TV revenue will go through the roof with these 2 additions.

Probably move Bama and Barn to East, UT, OU, and Mizzou to West. 9 game conference schedule.

It's not allegedly. Lawyers have been in talks with agents and "guess who" conference commish's. It happened. What is more important here is Texas took a DIRECT swipe at "The Real UT." Texas made it clear they want UT butt.

Side Note: Until Apple gives, you will have to put up with my phone spelling.
