LSU and Arkansas presidents…

If I had a time machine I would go back to 1950 and start a university. Subsidized to the ends of the earth and then football TV deals on top of that. God, they print money (our money).

Thought this was funny 😄

They would move Bama and Us to the east I bet.

I think there’s a good chance the big 12 implodes entirely before Texas and Oklahoma would have to pay a dime.

I wonder if the remnants of the Big 12 are poached by the AAC? I’m sure Kansas and maybe even ISU head to the B1G.

Weird to say but I am actually very excited about this and what it will do to the schedule. No way the East/West format survives. We will have to go to four team pods or no divisions and three or four protected games instead.

Don't think they had a choice

So a mandate instead of a vote.

@woodfordMay not have to poach from the conference. Word is the rest of the Texas universities are actively shopping themselves to the PAC 12 right now.

@gr82be Unlikely. The money was just too good to pass up. The only team that likely fought behind closed doors till the bitter end was A&M.

so what's the deal with the "pod system"?  what does that mean,exactly? you always play the other 3 and rotate others?

Yes.  It allows to host every non pod team within 4 years in a 9 game conference season. But you basically alternate playing the other teams not in pod every other year.

If this is true then be prepared for a&m to probably shop around and try to leave the SEC🤷 because thats a s***ty thing to do.

I would guess so.  The most efficient way I could see it working is playing the three in your own pod every year and then playing two of the four in each of the other three pods on a rotating basis.

Keeping some annual rivalries intact would be trickier in a pod format that's reasonably balanced, though.  But, that seems to matter less and less anymore.

I tend to not put a whole lot of stock in Bohls, but this would not be surprising...and yeah, if true, that's definitely s***ty.  I'm going to hold off on further comment on this one at the moment, though.

"A&M was kept in the loop the entire time" is a title of a thread on the A&M board, but I can't read the contents. So who knows.

If they do go pod I'd be interested in seeing who Auburn ends up with.  Knowing our luck it'll be Alabama, UGA, and a LSU/TaMu/Florida.  Another probably pod setup would be Bama, Vandy, Mizzou, Miss State and Auburn, UGA, Florida, Oklahoma.

I agree but I really doubt a&m leaves nowhere else can they get the type money SEC generates for them except maybe Big 10. There are other reason I don't think they will leave but you never know we shall see......

Saw this mentioned as a way to try to keep the big 12 afloat.  I really wouldn't mind it honestly. A&M, Mizzou, Nebraska and Colorado returning to the big 12, but when it's all said and done, it probably won't happen. I just miss the old big 12 lol

some act like they don't mind paying, others, like this tweet, seem to think they wait until 2025. For scheduling and alignment purposes, that might be the most logistical option, but do Texas and OU really want to wait that long?

I hope they were because A&M doesnt deserve that.

I don't see this as being true at all. It already looks like it's a done deal if that's the case there won't be any waiting I believe they are in by next year.

I also can't help laughing at the $70 exit fee part lol. I know it was a typo, but I laughed harder than I should

Nope! As pissed off as they are they are not going to pass up the money the SEC is going to make them.
