    It will get approved. Too much money at stake. Cannot see these schools willingly turning down millions of dollars in extra revenue on a yearly basis.

    Are you a SEC fan or a Miss. State fan? How in god's name is this going to be enjoyable for us. I watch for Mississippi State football not OU or Texas football. How is adding Alabama level competition going to make watching MSU football more enjoyable? Sure we are have a very low chance of winning a natty in football but at least there was a bit of hope that kept the fires burning in our guts. With this alignment that hope is pretty much a dead deal.

    I'm both.

    We had probably our best coach ever with the Dallas Cowboys starting qb snd multiple nfl guys with a down sec west one 2014, and we still couldn't get it done. With or without Oklahoma and texas, we aren't winning the west any time in the foreseeable future

    There's no way it would be getting this much talk if it weren't already a done deal. It's going to be really embarrassing for all of the SEC, Oklahoma, and Texas if this somehow gets derailed, and they would be already spinning and denying it if failure was a possibility.

    A&M is a hard no, I could see Arky (they benefit in recruiting from the lack of SEC Texas teams), and maybe Missouri saying no.

    At least we have a 20-30% chance of beating Texas or Oklahoma in a given year. We have 0% chance of beating Bama.

    Yeah, sec will twist arms to get what they want.

    The return of aTm vs Texas as an SEC game would be pretty awesome

    The sec could add FSU and Clemson after this, and basically tell the ncaa to F off any time there's a rule it doesn't like.

    Not every year. We would probably get one of them each year but UT has not impressed me. I would play them every year. I figure we would end up not playing any of the three one year but pick up GA that year.

    I think this would be a much more competitive set up for us than what we have now in the West. Everyone thought the "sleeping giant of A&M" was going to kill us forever in the West, and we are 4-5 against them since they joined.
    Texas is Texas - the perpetual let down. They have been that way since the early 1980s and need an Elite coach to make them anything else. Thankfully, they tend not to hire elite coaches.
    Oklahoma has been feasting on terrible B12 teams for 2 decades - and still typically lose a game or two to the Kansas States of the league - which means they are beatable. Put thru an SEC meat grinder and they will be about like Auburn.
    Honestly, I think a west with these teams would be a lot like the West in the 1990s - when anyone not named Ole Miss could win it.
    "After dealing with Ole Miss for over a year," he said, "I've learned to expect their leadership to do and say things that the leadership at other Division I schools would never consider doing and to justify their actions by reminding themselves that "We're Ole Miss.""

    The university said students were reportedly throwing rocks at Georgia baseball players during last weekend's series.

    Yeah I don’t get the fear some have of this. I personally prefer the old days of pre expansion, BUT the times they are a changing and being on the forefront of major change instead of reacting to it is most likely the best way to go.

    We are still a baseball power with this, we are still a football also ran. So not much will change.

    It's way more than that ... The last time this kind of talk came around, the State legislature of Oklahoma shut it down and declared UO & OK State will remain in the same conference ... it would actually take an act of legislature for this to happen. Maybe the true reality would be UO & OK State coming in to the conference.... screw Texas and their entitled believing selves
