Yeah, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas to the SEC makes a lot more sense, if the money works. Any chance the SEC could pry away Nebraska from the B1G? Add the conference semifinals concept and this could be a fun conference:

WEST: Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas
SOUTH: Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi St., Alabama, Auburn
EAST: Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Kentucky

* Go to at least a 9-game schedule, if not 10 games. Lock in the following cross-division games: Alabama-Tennessee, Auburn-Georgia, Texas-Texas A&M and perhaps LSU-Arkansas, Ole Miss-Vandy? Any others?

SEC basketball would be pretty decent too.

It would make more sense for the sec to jump to 18 with Texas, Tulane, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State than create 3 pods of 6. Texas Tech might work instead of Tulane but I like Sending Texas Tech to the pac 12 with tcu to give them some of the Texas market...could also add Houston and x.

Arkansas would never switch. This is just Stoops trolling the SEC, one of his favorite pastimes of the past few years. 07-coffee3

Exactly. Since Bob Stoops retired from coaching, not sure what his motivation is now to keep up being prickly and petty. Perhaps it is sibling rivalry.

Hey, it works for me.

Create an ultra-super SEC that contains programs such as Texas, OU, TA&M, LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and force them all to play each other.

That’s how you guarantee that no one wins. You get a bunch of programs that have almost unlimited resources, almost unlimited thirst for wins, whose supporters accept nothing short of championships every year. And you beat the snot out of each other, week in and week it, year in and year out.

Like I said, works for me.

I think it was a reporter who threw the question out. What's the guy going to say? Oh man they suck no way we want them in Big XII?

The very easy out of those types of questions is “I don’t have a comment on that.” or you go off-record.

Stoops most definitely wanted to make the comment and put it out there.

All ex-coaches and players are free-er with opinions when they retire.

Exactly. Since Bob Stoops retired from coaching, not sure what his motivation is now to keep up being prickly and petty. Perhaps it is sibling rivalry.

Probably that, but also the SEC probably still sticks in his craw. The SEC dealt Stoops some very stinging defeats, including losses to LSU and Florida in BCS National Championship games, and then plus there was a humiliating humbling at the hands of Texas A&M in the 2013 Cotton Bowl as well.

Stoops got tired of hearing about SEC superiority, particularly over his Sooners, so he hit back in the press about it. To his credit, he also hit back on the field as Oklahoma beat Alabama and Auburn in the 2014 and 2017 Sugar Bowls.

Of course, those game weren't nearly as big as the two National Title games he lost, but it did save some face for him, enough to keep jabbering about the SEC.

Still, ACC will make room for Notre Dame when it is ready to move football to ACC.
