RE: If the SEC did expand again and did so from the Big 12 who should we take and why?
Well it's never over until it's over and A&M is making threats and bowing up. The reason they think they were not informed is that all presidents were sworn to silence and all were in the know and their president has been keeping her word. Ridiculous.

The big stuff comes next. When the Big 12 is formally notified and the formal applications filed we get on with life. But, for how long? Just until the other dominoes fall, and they will fall. Fear is back, greed is in play, and somebody on one of the coasts will try the waters.

And this will absolutely be going on again next Summer when we'll know if caps on stipends are legal or not. There could be opt outs at that point.

Now the rumor mongers are out and there are some whoppers.

Big 10 raiding the PAC is a favorite, but the best one so far is the SEC moving to 20 with Clemson, Florida State, okay not news but wait for it......Michigan and Ohio State.

Now I will admit that foursome adds value and if you consider ESPN's love of the Buckeyes and their lament of Michigan's fall from grace and the Florida market and Clemson's run do you realize that with Oklahoma this includes every CFP participant other than Oregon and Washington?

Super Conference? Yeah! Is it happening. I'm pretty sure it's not, but what a punch. I will say this though, of all of the Big 10 schools the sports culture at Ohio State fits the SEC culture even if tailgate foods don't. The Buckeyes and their fans would be fun and as they say in the Big 10, they're contiguous!

I think we are done at 16 unless somebody drops out and then I suppose Kansas is in the wings for Mizzou and Kentucky, or unless somebody key in the ACC bolts or ND is grabbed and their value suffers again and then get really antsy.

If there was a run on the ACC by the Big 10 I can see ESPN protecting their best product in the SEC at pro rata. Think FSU, Clemson, North Carolina and one of the Virginia's which with UNC might well be UVa though Tech is the better sports value. And Texas would likely prefer UVa and A&M would prefer Tech and that would take us back to the start of this post.

So SEC brethren we now have a rivalry hotter than the Iron Bowl. I give you the Bickersons, Bevo and Revely. May the eyes of Texas stay on them. There's oodles of money in those eyes!
