LOL. That will solve their problems.
P5 money solves so many problems.........................................................
UConn could use some of that monetary infusion

I will laugh if this goes through and somehow inconveniences the AAC

I honestly really like the big 12 and I think it geographically makes a lot of sense (besides WVU) so I can’t quite understand why Texas and OU would want to leave.

720 versus 439 million in revenue. Geographically speaking Texas and OU border Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana, so it’s not like squeezing CT into the sec or big12.

Security and payout increase. Also the best football conference, and won't hurt OU's or UT's to get into the football playoffs, if the playoffs expand to 12.

Here we go again.

A high-level university official informed Orangebloods the expectation is that Texas and Oklahoma would inform the Big 12 as early as next week that both schools intend to decline on extending the existing set of media rights. The contract expires in 2025.

"That should start the dominos," the source told Orangebloods.

14 schools vs. 10. 51 vs. 43 million. Not quite that dramatic a difference. Texas and Oklahoma both make a lot more than 51. Doesn't seem worth it to go from huge fish in medium pond to big fish in big pond.

Hey I don’t support it but sec will be able to bring in even more revenue once they add UT and OU. They should be able to pay out more per school than the Big10

Texas and OU will pay for themselves and then some.

If it happens, it’ll murder the Big 12’s television deals and probably bury the AAC. Can’t see the Big 12 not backfilling with at least two AAC schools (UCF would be a lockish-type prospect) and as many as four.

(Will not be Memphis.)

someone should create a board here just for conference realignment talk. It could even have threads for tweets that are considered "key" and possibly even some that are not-"key".
If it is important/annoying enough to you for you to post about it, is it really that hard to not open a thread - with a title that perfectly describes the content - that you may think is misplaced?
