UT and OU joining the SEC is a huge domino that could redefine college football.
The "Power 5" discussion may be a "Power 4" conversation.
The SEC's grip on CFB would almost become a separate governing body.
Imagine the lucrative TV deals they could leverage?
The SEC is in a position to threaten to go complete intra-conference scheduling. As they inch towards 20 teams, is there anything the NCAA or other conferences could do about it? Sure, there are legal hurdles, but the Power 5 is already approaching talk to break away.
If the Big 12 dissolves as a result of this, what other "Power 5" conference could stop the SEC from breaking away?
Can you imagine what a SEC Super Conference could do to the rest of the CFB?
I like the move. It's going to force football NCAA to move a lot faster than they normally do. Conferences dont mean crap anymore. I can see NCAA football breaking off completely and see a full restructure. I give it 5 years and we won't recognize collge ball.
Dan Patrick had some great ideas yesterday. One being 4 ten to twelve team super conferences. With a 12 team playoff. That puts the top 40 to 48 teams in contention. As long as the conferences as split with the totality in mind, I like the idea.
