Oklahoma would be an excellent fit in the SEC.

So would Texas A&M, Missouri, and LSU.

Any SEC team really, that is sick and tired of being oppressed by Alabama. Not talking about politics or bad behavior, anything like that. Talking about losing on the field over and over and over and over ..... it just gets old eventually. If you can't beat 'em, leave 'em.


But on a slightly more serious note .... how much has Arkansas won since since joining the SEC? Football field or basketball court. Seems to me that if they wanted a chance to win more games, they might consider the move.

And not like the Big 12 conf distribution is terrible, either.

It is a move that makes sense and is totally stupid at the same time.

And since this is all hypothetical anyway ....

We know the Big 8 schools are lock-step NO for Houston. Too scared of what pulling them up to P5 does for recruiting in Texas.

Adding Ark would push roughly halfway from OKC out towards Memphis. Does Memphis become a palatable compromise on #12?

SEC should take Texas and Oklahoma. ACC is pretty full to take members.

Didn't Arkansas try and join the Big 8 when looking to leave the SWC and was turned down? Imagine a Big XII that was Texas, A&M, Tech and Arkansas joining in the early 90's. Would the SEC add FSU along with USC to get to 12? Does Baylor end up in the WAC or CUSA? Does the ACC go to 9 with Miami? If so does the Big East FB form? Lots of dominoes that could have fell differently if the Big 8 said yes to the Razorbacks.

1st, This is often talked about here in Arkansas. Nobody wants to join the Big 12. But people would listen if a conference made up of Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas came about. Especially if the money seemed to work out.

2nd, Basketball won a national title in 94, and we've won like 20 something national titles in track and field since joining the SEC.

Yes, Back in the late 70's or early 80's. Arkansas tried to join the Big 8. But was blocked by Nebraska because they thought it would hurt their rivalry with Oklahoma. That would have been a great conference.
