Texas and Oklahoma are eyeing the SEC 👀

What to make of this report
I don’t think this would happen but let’s just imagine for a second. This would totally kill the Big-12 and make it not a Power 5 anymore. If Texas and Oklahoma were to leave, that would mean the SEC would have 16 teams and would almost be forced to shuffle up the conferences. Not only would this affect the SEC, but also the College Football Playoffs. We know there is a bigger hand at play here. In my opinion, Oklahoma is a tier 2 team and Texas is maybe a tier 4. But if they join the SEC, they jump up a tier because of how hard the SEC is judged. This is also contingent on if they play well and win.
Say the CFP expands to 12 teams (gross, I know). That would mean that Oklahoma doesn’t have to win the Big-12 to get in. They can be a two or three loss team and still get in. Same goes for Texas. Say they lose to a Florida or Auburn but it’s really close, the committee might be generous to them. Not to mention, this would totally eliminate the Big-12 winner or at best make them a high seed (5-12).
Final Takeaways of Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC
I can’t see this happening at all. Texas and Oklahoma are the Big-12. They also make the most money for the conference and in return fund some of those smaller programs. I don’t know if they are doing this to get more revenue but every Saturday on FOX, either Texas or Oklahoma is playing so I am not sure what else they want. Hopefully this isn’t more than just a little disgruntlement that can’t be handled with a sit down.
