You may be right and makes sense.  Either way, I hope the big 12 does get those 4 teams and we can move on to the sec asap.

In listening to Chip Brown's podcast, he made it sound like the rooting interest for texas fans would be for the big 12 to poach the pac 12 but didn't give a lot of details. It'll be a legal battle either way with both sides trying to protect their money as much as possible.

Not a fan of Chip.

If you're Texas and OU, what are you and the SEC offering the Big 12 to leave early? Maybe a series of non conference games? Bowl agreements with nicer bowls? Cause the Big 12 is willing to cut a deal. The commissioner has hinted at it. But they have to get something for giving their two biggest schools up.

So they're fishing.

Hold out. 

You don't cut a deal when you don't have to. Make them give you a deal that you want. We don't have to give them anything.

Then you risk waiting until 2025 which is what Texas doesn't want to happen.

I'd assume the goal here would be for the Horns and ousux to be in the conference by 2024 to cash in on the new deal, right?

Waiting until 2025 would be brutal.

Ketch? ...agree

David Garvin once held the #1 spot. That was due to the infamous "Gotch Yarbrough" incident which I witnessed in real time spanning over a week or so.

Some poster totally made up a recruit from Canada which he named "Gotch Yarbrough" thinking Garvin would eventually see the "Gotch Ya" in Gotch Yarbrough.

But no. A few days later Garvin included "Gotch Yarbrough at #44 or some such in the revised rankings.

It put him out of business and was a stain on UT.

If I'm Texas I make it a point to bitch slap every team in every sport. Make it as difficult as possible for every visiting team because you know that's what is coming our way. Make it where they will be glad to be rid of us.

F this podunk conference. 🤘

UCLA may not be going to the Big 10. See Gov. Gavin Newsome who is all kinds of butt hurt over this.

 

Nah

Newsom may push for UCLA to share their proceeds with Berkeley like good communists. "It's best for the UC system." He'd be a damn fool to block the move even if he has the power to do so. Stanford, OR, or WA would be ready to take their place.

Well, I never said the guy was smart. lol. He's prepping to run for president in 24, even after a recall as governor. I can't stand the guy.

Texas will play in the SEC in 2023.  Trust me on this.

Also, the Big 12 will have new members in 2023.  Trust me on this as well.

In doc we trust.

Fantastic news. How ya been Doc? Wish you were posting more here.

When you say the Big 12 will have new members – are you saying in addition to the teams they've already added?

Would you say that item 1 you said is directly caused by item 2?
