Realignment talk not going away


The Tower

There's  two stages to gomer grief. First is panic, "fuck no! He'll no! Over my dead body! Call your congressman! Call the governor!"

Then they transition to tough talk "well be ready. Can't beat the 12th man. No way you'll be able to compete with us, especially if you look at this small sample size of years where we won. Big stadium! Our coach won a national title somewhere else!"

Now that the subject of sardines has been broached, I'll ask, what does an aggy have in common with a sardine?

They both come in a jar.

uick

Quick and dirty puttanesca -- the sauce that tastes like a Sicilian whore. In a good way, lol:

1. Take a can or jar of sardines in plain olive oil and saute until the fish disappears.

2. Add a jar of this and simmer:

3. Add shrimp or drained albacore tuna and simmer.

4. Serve with shaved parmesan.

Not buying the Oklahoma State talking to Big10 stuff, and I don’t think their fans are either.  I don't think the big 10 has reached out to anyone as of yet.  

 

Pretty sure that Kansas, Okie Lite and Iowa State have to reach out to other conferences first or it causes legal problems.

The BIG 10 won't talk to a B12 team until that school first approaches them about moving to the BIG 10.

The aggy tears are just so intoxicating, I mean they want to be viewed as Bama and Georgia yet you haven't heard any of their fans cry about it as much as aggy has literally non stop. Call the Gov! Call your congressman! Let's sue them! Yea that sounds just like a secure dominant school right there.

Well of course they reached out.  Every one of the remaining 8 has reached out to a major conference.  What I’m saying is I’m not buying the “mutual interest” or “it’s looking good for okie state to the big 10” talk that is coming out.  

Oklahoma State isn’t AAU, they don’t travel, small fanbase, and no tv eyeballs.  I’m not buying that at all and Oklahoma State is the one b12 team I actually like and want them to not get left behind. 

But as I said earlier, we will find out more probably Friday as I think announcements for UT and OU to the SEC will have come by then (formally—an ESPN press conference).

Poor aggy found out they are only sitting at the kiddy table and the adults are in another room.

Not a single aggy seems to remember which school was principally responsible for A&M gaining admission into the AAU. Here’s a hint-it wasn’t A&M. 

I’ve yet to meet an honest aggy. Certainly not one willing to be honest with themself.

Yeah, you’re just now warming up to this move and the better schedule it’ll bring. Yet, like many here, you were likely berating the SEC for being overrated as recently as 4 days ago. You’re a sharp one.

The 180 change in narrative around here is peculiarly self-serving (and expected).

Still, it’s nice of you to throw a bone to all those teams you’ve been struggling with in recent years.

What part of fuck the SEC do you still not get?

They have a decent amount of eyeballs. They have a really good overall AD. They care. They’d be a really good add to the AAC. Their poor academics make them a non starter to the BIG or the PAC I believe.

The realization that is dawning on many seems to be that when aggy joined the SEC, the overwhelming noise being spewed forth was that the move "made" aggy. Now, aggy was going to be able to compete! It completed them.

With Texas going to the SEC, the talking points seem to universally be that the move is going to help the SEC in an incredible way so much so that the SEC now has the ability to perhaps leave the NCAA. Now, the SEC will be able to completely impose its will on college athletics.

A college power broker is the institution that "Makes" a conference into an incredibly greater force. Not vice versa.

Whoooop

My guy, neongarbear, really went with "it's not about money; it's about the friends you made along the way." 

We’re not your friends.  We were never your friends.  This is about business.  We’ve gotten to the end game - TX and OU.

    - SEC and its members

Nope. Stand by my criticisms before. 

but now with us and OU you have some credibility and some real earning power. The SEC is a different entity now, so we are excited for that. You should be too. 

but the SEC was an over rated group of cheating, piss poor academic schools (hi Vandy). Now you have the chance to be something more. 
 

You’re welcome

Deloss in an SEC room would not work. People who say Texas and the SEC won’t mix are thinking through the lense of the 2000’s. CDC has the right temperament to make it work and not rub people the wrong way or come across as arrogant. 

"We don't keep up with the Jones. We are the Joneses." --Deloss Dodds   (--And me.   --And about a jillion Texas Exes.)

Like Dizzy Dean once said, "It ain't braggin' if you can do it." I guess I better stay out of SEC rooms too.

will need a replacement OOC game for Bama but that should be easy. Wonder what happens with the “marquee” games after that?


non conference line-up with Alabama, tOSU, and Mich? 
 

No way the SEC allows that

It still benefits CDC and the administration to schedule big name OOC opponents. Bama, LSU, and Georgia all do. Losing a decent OOC game and then doing well in the SEC conference slate will probably mean a playoff spot. So schedule games that bring a sold out DKR. My hope is we'll continue with the caliber of Ohio States and Michigans when we replace those SEC OOC dates.

Well I’m taking the “no eyeballs” directly from their fans.  Even they admit they don’t have eyeballs.   I would hate for them to end up in the American, but I would love for Baylor or TCU to be demoted to the American.
