    Default OUUT! ... OU, UT to join SEC

    Movement is never over.

    Got to be ready and in the best possible position for the best opportunity.

    Huge aftershocks in several conferences if this happens.

    Texas A and M will throw a fit. Guess their opinion don't matter in the big scheme .

    Tex A&M's opposition to UT and OK's supposed reluctance to move without OK St. are hurdles to this, but UT's money makes the Big 12 dysfunctional as is. If this happens and the Big 12 survives, it may be relegated to being on par with the AAC as halfway between a "Power" conference and the rest of the conferences. Either way, its going to be interesting.

    And the impending doom of the NCAA as we know it plays a huge part in all of this. Will be very interesting in how this all plays out but not really surprising. The next question is how much does the government interject into the situation. It may be hard for many institutions at the higher end to still maintain themselves as a tax-exempt organization.

    That's why I said "supposed reluctance" - I agree that OK would jump at the chance to join the SEC without a second thought about OK St.

    LOUISIANA to the BIG 12(9)? Could be no better opportunity now, especially with our experience with teams that will still be there.

    Better to be mid-pack in Big 12 than Conference Division Champs in Sunbelt?

    Yes as just about all the other P5 conferences will try to keep up and expand to 16 teams as well or at least as close to it. There won't just be opportunities in the Big 12.

    Zephyr. Regionally, the Big 12 would seem to be the only fit, yeah?

    Straight up answer is YES!

    In actuality though, "middle of the pack" is selling Louisiana short.

    Yes but I guess what I'm saying is that other P5 conferences could poach teams remaining in the Big 12 which could affect schools like ours. Just like Colorado and Nebraska leaving for other conferences in recent years. You could possibly see more schools leave to either the Pac-10 or Big 10 opening up more slots.
