No divisions allows every school to play everyone within two years.

Absolutely agree with this.

Solves all our division problems (i.e. Auburn can finally let it go) and you get the full conference experience for every player and student there for 4 years.

Now I still refuse to believe we will waste the most valuable thing in CFB (a SEC realignment slot) on Okie State but if even if it's say OU and Kansas then getting rid of divisions is still a must

I'm one of the biggest Kansas to the SEC supporters on here, but I may be starting to see the light for OK St.

1) They could theoretically win the Big 12/Sugar Bowl/make it to the playoffs this year right before an announcement of a move (or whichever year it is).
2) OK St. vs. Ole Miss, vs. LSU, etc. would be higher rated than Kansas vs. LSU, etc.
3) OK St. "brings" OK with them. (I know its the other way around, but we could easily invite State first.
4) Kansas doesn't have a Boone Pickens to help invest in programs.

On the other hand:
1) Our weak sport is basketball, and Kansas brings Kansas-Kentucky, Kansas-Florida, Kansas-Missouri basketball games (and a Kansas-Missouri football rivalry back).
2) Kansas is a much better academic school.
3) Another state/population, and a barrier to the Big 10.

SEC basketball is a sleeper that is just starting to wake up. South Carolina and Florida are improving. L.S.U. has been down for too long but has potential. Alabama and Auburn are just starting to reinvest in it. If we could separate for the NCAA and the schools could earn their true tournament revenue instead of the skimmed credits that have allowed the NCAA to squirrel away 1 Billion in endowed funds from the tournament (70 million a year) then you would see a much bigger emphasis placed on the game.

After Iger's announcement yesterday it will be interesting to see if the SEC and ACC stop at 16, 18, or 20. As Disney moves toward streaming their own product, especially since Iger said they would invest more in original programming (including sports which means more rights purchases) it calls many things into question and I would suspect the ACCN is one of them. They'll get their network, but how much more of a market will ESPN want to secure for them before the 2019 launch? Will they enhance the linear channel aspect, or seek to maximize the more selective streaming aspects for these games? It could yet get very interesting.
