That is a more sensible trade for them. CU is not a power conference school now that the State Gov. has been systematically defunding the system to pay for K-12 ed.
So you are saying that A&M left because of an inferiority complex?

As for Johnny Manziel, A&M had no idea he would be a Heisman contender, much less the winner - they had made up their minds to leave before he even set foot on campus.

A&M left because of recruiting. They were already second player to Texas and Oklahoma. Then TCU and Baylor started to erode their chances further. They hoped by moving to SEC that they could attract more Texas high school stars. SEC also wanted them for same reason. Whether it's going to work is still to be determined.

I'm glad OU didn't go although it would have been fun competing and pounding on those SEC West teams! Oklahoma is a South-Central/Southwestern state and has no business geographically being in the SouthEASTERN Conference.
Let's hope they don't change their minds and decide they want to be part of the SEC. We already have a family split: pro wise: it is 90% Dallas and just 2 little old people (hubby and me) totally loyal to the Skins. We are a family split when it comes to baseball: mostly Rangers, but again, a few Dodger fans. At least we are in different leagues. Then we have college football: 2 OU grads and fans, with the rest being Hogs though and through. OU in the SEC might lead to a family divorce.

Ha!

It may take that for OU to be relevant again. The setup of the Big XII right now is just sorry. A sorry conference. I think that Beebe did the Big XII a tremendous disservice and the University Presidents/AD's should have worked harder at keeping teams in the league during realignment, most notably Nebraska and Aggie U.

This Big XII mantra "One True Champion" is just a ruse.

Where would they go? Conferences eye TV marketing these days and Oklahoma doesn't have much for population.

All true. That's why I call it the Dinky Dozen.

Norman isn't a big city, but OKC... really isn't that much of a big city, either. But it's still enough and it would still be a new market for a conference that WILL be looking to expand sometime in the future.

If the Big 12 does disband, the only schools that really will most likely not have any trouble finding a home is Kansas and West Virginia. The rest such as Iowa State (maybe), Kansas State, Baylor, and TCU will have a hard time finding a home. Maybe the SEC adds one more Texas team but A&M and Arkansas could block that. With A&M, they may feel they have enough inroads to Texas as they need. From what I've read, the SEC is looking East for expansion. Personally, outside of maybe a time factor (which I think is not that big of a deal to me), Texas, Tech, OU, and OSU in the Pac 16 would be a home run.

Oh and ScoPro, I always lurk on Shaggy. That and tigerdroppings are my favorite college boards.
