Realignment talk not going away

I think the most likely pods for competitive balance are....
West:  Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas
Central:  Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State
North:  Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
East:  Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky

Assuming each school plays their own pod plus a home/home with 2 schools from each pod, the schedule every four years would look something like this.  If they help A&M out by not putting them in the same pod with us, make Arkansas the Thanksgiving game.

 

1:  Noncon
2:  Noncon

3:  Missouri
4:  Ole Miss
5:  Oklahoma
6:  Tennessee
7:  Florida
8:  Noncon
9:  LSU
10: Auburn
11: South Carolina
12: Arkansas

 

1:  Noncon

in the.... wow this is a crazier than crazy thought....

what if the SEC did decide to honor the gentlemens agreement that other than the 3 states that have 2 teams, there can really only be 1 Texas team?

 

Aggy gets their wish right?

 

 

EXCEPT be careful what you ask for.....

 

 the SEC could just accept Texas as that one team and then asks aTm to leave....   lol   mass insanity ensues....

As soon as Sankey talks the Ags off the ledge he will pat them on the head and say good boy.  It’s really a win/win for them.  More money, only true rival back, don’t play Bama every year, and they get to play the victim card.

It's going to be great when this young generation of Longhorns, who've had limited interactions with true aggy, get their first real taste of aggy and then say to us who've dealt with them in the past, "I finally understand what you were saying about aggy all these years". 

I see no lies in this post.

Worst logo and uniforms in Pitt history, IMO. Glad y'all revived the Marino/Dorsett era gear and colors.

Prior to joining the sec, aggy's entire identity was based around being a victim of tu.

For 10 years, they've pivoted that identity to being a part of the sec.

In one move, we've offered them the opportunity to live both simultaneously.

Hopefully I don't make an ass of myself asking this question, but if/when Texas and OU are added to the SEC, would that not give them enough power to basically tell the NCAA to fuck off? I don't know the legality of being an NCAA student athlete, but if the SEC wanted to cut out the NCAA all together, it kind of seems like a significant portion of big players would already be at the table?

Don't know if you've gotten a reply yet, but yes, the SEC is now more powerful than the NCAA. NCAA gets ass beaten every time someone takes them to court, and they lost a ton of power when NIL became legal. Their primary function was to keep players from getting paid. Somewhere, about 23rd on the list was academic integrity. First time they try to sanction an SEC school, the SEC tells them to FOAD, cause they're dropping NCAA affiliation. NCAA says NCAA schools can't play against SEC teams and the other major conferences drop out. 

Basically, that means they aren't going to sanction SEC teams, cause the NCAA is scared of the SEC now. Their primary function for the next five years is trying to see if they can still exist so they can pay the executives. They may still be able to carve out a niche sanctioning Bowling Green for handing out puffy stickers to prospects, but that's about it.

Thanks for the answer, and this was exactly my thinking. If the NCAA tries any shit with an SEC school at this point, they're powerless, and in reality I kind of see it as an XFL with more money centered around regional schools than anything. I think this morning is finally when I was able to comprehend how much of a monumental shift this is, more than the aggie with egg on their face spectacle currently on-going.

The reality is the opposite of what aggy told the world....
- they were the only school that demanded they keep their share of the orphan 5 money
- then they left early so they would have the last home game
- we tried to get them a 50% share of a tv network which they shit on
- billboards showing their ass in waco, dallas and houston
- then they blamed the LHN, even though they announced their "standing offer" 18 months before the LHN
- when challenged for examples of our repression they foam at the mouth and go cornholio
- along with smu they fedexed their way in to probation that got themselves kicked off tv which killed the SWC
- legislation to force us to play them after they left (you will allow your former spouse to fuck you)
- legislation to stop the move to PAC when the SWC was breaking up
- pitched a fit when we were going to the PAC the second time after we got Stanford and Cal to agree to allow the jackboots in
- and now legislation to stop the move to the SEC - you can't do what we did
and that's just the highlights of the bullshit in last 40 years
the list goes on and on and on, and finally, finally, the rest of the country outside secrant is getting a taste
 
This needs to be shared everywhere those twats are whining.

Of course. Why wouldn’t we? We’ll make that back up with the extra money in the SEC payout by 2025. The idea that the Grant of Rights was ever going to be an impediment has always been dumb and completely unfounded. 

There's no way it'll be anywhere close to $76 million.  The GOR is just another negotiation, like the exit penalties before them.  It'll cost peanuts to exit when we choose.

So are we sure Sharp didn’t know?  (honest question - Finebaum (I know) suggested it and I haven’t seen confirmation one way or another). 
 

Because Sharp knowing and not telling aggy BOR or AD is somehow even a better narrative for me.  Because if/when it leaks that he knew, he is done.  

I would also prefer that he knew. It would neuter any argument they have against the SEC SEC SEC.

Occam's razor...do you think this jizz jar loving red ass aggy could keep that secret for 5 seconds?

so just for a recap to make sure I have everything so far:

 

Texas and OU look to be making the move to the sec

Everyone says OU is let looking to the future but that UT is heartless and evil even though they are both leaving in the exact same way

everything was done in secret thru a law firm for a few months at least, a deal could be very close

SEC leadership totally left Mizzou and aggy out of the discussion and agreed to work on the deal with UT effectively behind aggy and mizzous back because of their Col. Sanders, mint julep country gentleman’s hand shake which supposedly gave aggy power over UT and OU entering the league

*Sharp and the Aggie president new about it but had to keep their AD in the dark according to Finebaum.

Aggy finds out thru the board of regents meeting where the plans were revealed either thru necessity or by a leaker

Aggy didn’t take it well, news gets to The Chronicle and we have a report that causes Texags to crash. 

Big Xii finds out and loses their shit since the remaining 8 are essentially fucked. Some of us feel bad for OSU and KSU, but not many.

aggy throws a huge apoplectic public tantrum where they insinuate they are going to look into to how to respond to such an outrage possibly by moving conferences, blocking in TX legislator or suing the SEC in gentleman's court for being naughty.   


 

Am I missing anything?

 

We also felt bad for ISU.

So is this the pr slogan they're going to adopt?

They do realize how incredibly transparent it is, right?

One Texas team is enough!

Why?

...uhhh...because it will hurt aggy.

Why should Texas or the sec use that to guide decisions?

Apparently Vandy already had a school that could read much better than us and then another school that can read just about as well as us...

aggy is now the guy who has realized he hates his job, but because he's gotten himself in tremendous debt trying to impress the neighbors, he has to stick around. No one else will pay him what he's making and leaving would require downgrading the "lifestyle" he's financially committed to but can't really afford.

So, aggy is aggy.

Hey fuck you man. (Less the debt part)

I think the buyout is a ruse.  In 2020 the Big XII generated $400M in TV revenue.  That money is paid out from ESPN/ABC or whoever the contract with the conference is with.  So how in the world would ESPN expect Texas and OU to payout $76M when they will be paying us $60M in 2023 and if we go over in 2022 well over $45M? It seems like they would Be happy to take care of this based on the viewership and ad revenue they will receive from having Texas and OU for their SEC games.

Quote

Three senior officials at the university told the Austin American-Statesman that the school was probing the allegations against state Sen. Charles Schwertner, who met the graduate student at an on-campus event this summer. The student told the married Republican she was interested in politics, particularly working at the Legislature, prompting them to exchange messages on LinkedIn before taking the conversation to text message, two officials told the newspaper.

Schwertner, 48, then interrupted an otherwise professional exchange regarding the student‚Äôs political career with a blunt disclosure, writing, ‚ÄúI just really want to f‚Äďk you‚ÄĚ and sent an image of his genitals apparently taken in a shower, according to a university official who had seen the graphic exchange. The lewd picture did not include the lawmaker‚Äôs face.
