In the 12 team layout, the top six conference champs get auto bids, the top four by ranking get the 4 byes.   So, as long as the Pac12 champ was one of the top 6 conference champions, they'd get an autobid...same as the AAC or withered Big 12 if they stay together.  

At larges are by ranking only.

Not finalized in contract, and will be moot with recent moves. Our move kills autobids

Should be noted that's just the buyout to withdraw, the GOR is still in effect if the conference exists.   So it will be more expensive than $76m.  

According to the by laws to, the date of leaving is the first June 30th after 18 months from the moment of withdraw.   In that regard, everyone would still play in the Big 12 for two years, OU/Texas and anyone else who gives notice, just won't get paid until the buyout fee is gone, then any years remaining on the media deal would be held by the Big 12 until the GoR ended.

Edit:  Not taking into consideration legal negotiations, which will modify it, just saying this is how it is laid out in the bylaws.

The way to do it for free is just say, "we're not re-upping" play for the rest of the contract, and sign somewhere else in 2025

Meh, TCU hasn't been about Jesus in quite a long time. 

It’s also got 10,000 students and no TVs. They can’t fill up their own games. They bring nothing to the table.

That will all get settled and negotiated.  We ain't hanging around that long.

Those are reasons for passing.  And I'm not defending TCU.  But when they're shopping for a conference I don't think they'll have the strong religious association like Baylor that will turn anyone off.

As a bear fan there's a lot to sort through but goddamn I'm loving these Aggy tears. Years of bravado and SEC SEC SEC bullshit and now they immediately tuck tail and start crying to the media when big brother and his friend come back to town.

As we learn more information my confidence in the other schools and the SEC leadership is growing significantly.

After 10 years of A&M doing everything they could to ingratiate themselves to the SEC, the leadership of both the SEC and any schools that were involved still understood that the only thing larger than A&M's self importance was their stupidity and kept them in the dark. 

Bravo

I guess aggy can get up off their knees now.

How is that intriguing, Kirk?  It’s already been discussed: it’s staying as is, just as Fla-Ga do it and Bama-Auburn used to. 

Exactly. In the past 92 years, Texas and OU faced off something like 66 times as non-conference foes, 15 times as divisional foes within the same conference, and 10 times as just general conference foes. Those distinctions made no impact whatsoever on the reality that it'd be played in the Cotton Bowl every year without exception, there was never any substantive dialogue between the schools about moving it either to home-and-home or a different neutral field (a special "fuck you" to the token few left that want to move it to Arlington), and the only time this ever comes up in the first place is when it fits into the cookie cutter definition of what the fuck it actually is: a stupid person's idea of a smart thing to say. "Oh I bet they change it for the sake of changing it because things and words! Look at me I have a Twitter account!"

What about playing one of the Service Academies (The real ones) on a rotation? I would love to go see us play Army.

I had no idea so many schools had a dedicated baseball logo.  Seems stupid. Get 1 good logo and run with it. 
Plus, they got our "dedicated baseball logo" wrong. We don't wear the ubiquitous Longhorn noggin on our caps. It's the block T.

Give Kirk a break. When he heard Texas and OU were moving to the SEC, he thought the universities had to relocate out of Texas and Oklahoma. Dementia is a bitch.

That’s always been pretty obvious. Basketball blue blood with solid academics and a large alumni base. 

I guess it's just something I don't think about much. Especially because they are so shitty in football.

I don't think it's going to have to come to this, but at the same time, I'm certain that the Texas AD can hit a line of credit and fork that down with about a weeks advance notice. Hell, they had 1-2 similar outstanding loans and it didn't stop us from getting another loan to build the SEZ. Issue some bonds and they big money will show up. Or pay it off over 10 years with the SEC profits. We'd cut a check to get out for the 2022 season before we'd stay here to 2025.

A Longhorn would look shitty on our caps. We have always used the block T thing.

I am ready for the biggest FU tour in sports history. Texas has a legit chance to win the final Baseball and Basketball (with an outside chance of football showing out) conference championships in the conference that they helped blow up. OU should help by winning softball and football is expectations are met.  This will be the most fun season ever as we stroll through each season rocking the double birds

I can't freaking believe we're joining the SEC.

I haven't been this excited about college football in a long time. Everything about this is going to be fantastic.

It's going to be great for the entire athletic department.

They are lucky we ever asked them in.  Ingrates.  

I always felt like that was a mistake.  Other then ASU in the Rose Bowl blowing the NC to tOSU decades ago I couldn't recall if either team made it back since admission.
