They’ll negotiate a buyout. It will pay for itself with the tv money

What would the motivation be from the other conference teams to give them a buyout? The GOR is designed to prevent exactly that.

And I don't know how anyone could claim "it would pay for itself with tv money." Literally anyone. The best anyone could hope for there is that ESPN and FOX tear up their deals that were negotiated 8 months ago and don't even go into effect for another 3 years. No one knows if that money is there, not even ESPN knows that, Disney is slashing everywhere and they would literally have to commit a minimum of $1 billion over 10 years to make it work.

If Vandy, Miss State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, South Carolina, Arkansas and I’d even add Auburn at this point . . . vote for this (if it’s true).  Then they might as well issue a joint statement proclaiming they have no intention of ever winning an SEC football championship and are simply there to play games and collect checks.   They might as well add that they also have no real aspirations to make the CFBPO even if they’re expanded to 12 or even 16. 

Straight up LOL’ing at at MethU and CultAggie if this happens.   They both run their mouths about escaping the Big Texas conference and CultAggie will continue to talk a huge game and yet never win anything.  Imagine being a CultAggie weirdo all super horned up to win and yet knowing deep inside you’ll never win anything and now you’re competing directly against your Daddy again? 

LOL.

I was also thinking about Nebraska yesterday.  20 years since they’ve last won a conference title in football and they still have never won an NCAA tourney basketball game, ever.  Now relegated to conference piss boy, a total afterthought, but with tens of thousands of clod kickers in Starter jackets claiming how happy they are in the BiG.

I'm still exhausted over it all. Just rip the bandaid off. I care, but sort of don't. I'm kind of ready for my break up with college sports.

OU and Texas have all the money in the world.  Moving to SEC is purely to stay competitive with recruiting.  They don’t want a 5-star QB from Dallas to choose Bama and make millions from local Texas businesses.  I’m confident this is all happening because of NIL.

OU just landed the top QB in the country. 

Does anyone really think that Norman Meat Rubs or Oklahoma Chicken Fryers featuring the Tom Hayes Chicken Fingers Deluxe was going to hold tight until OU was going to the SEC. 

Didn’t Rattler already sign with Cane’s?

OU and UT employ business and operations intelligence people to monitor financial reports, industry moves, moves made by rivals, etc.   It appears that OU and UT have concluded that the upcoming TV deals are not going to satisfy their revenue requirements, and that the broadcast landscape has changed entirely.  They are going to move pre-emptively to preserve their program status - we've all seen how quickly OU can throw the conference under the bus, this should come as no surprise. 

My only consolation?  We aren't being subjected to the moronic musings of OU's David Boren.

College Football if it even exists in 10 year will be regional interest sport with huge swaths of the country not caring.   That’s already the case now and that’s going to accelerate.   

It’ll be a Southern/Texas thing.   The only thing that will save that from being diluted by migration South is the massive influx of Northern out of state students who stay in the region.   But even then, dilution.   It will be the sport of townies, regionalists and Southern homers. 

Not sustainable on a national scale.

i'm at a much different place in my life this time around. Whatever happens, happens.

This is DEFINITELY true for me.  I've grieved "this day" for over a decade.  I'm at peace with it.

The Texas/A&M sideshow is pretty entertaining. But, man, those people are so emotionally sensitive that it's also kind of annoying.

Yes, the sadist in me is rooting for that side show to take center stage.   :fatty:

I’m handling this worse than I expected.  It will have to be a straight CFB divorce for me.

The SEC Network will be a standalone $20 per month subscription service eventually.  The cord cutters and the move to ala carte TV selection will have vast swaths of the country opting out of paying for services that they don’t care about.   Carriage rights will have to go up to sustain the TV contracts.  Driving cord cutting and more expensive ala carte app driven viewership.

I'm on team Dax as to how this will look 10-15 years from now.  NCAA football product isn't getting better as a whole.

The first iteratation Big 12 was so freaking awesome. Just incredible how that fell apart.

Being in a hodgepodge leftover version of that conference bothers me more than being in a non power conference. Like, being in a hodgepodge MWC honestly seems preferable. Let the Big 12 die.

I'll also stop watching CFB entirely (probably basketball, too, once the NCAA falls apart and March Madness is gone). I don't think that is handling things poorly, though. I also don't watch minor league baseball. If college athletics is going to be a farm league for the pros that my school doesn't even participate in, then why the hell would I watch?
