The talk of College Football right now is the report that dropped on Wednesday that Texas and Oklahoma are looking to leave the Big 12 to join the SEC.

On Thursday, the SEC Network put up a graphic showing what the potential alignment could look like if the two teams joined the conference.

The SEC, which would be turning into a super conference, would consist of 4 pods/divisions. LSU would be in a pod with Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M, according to the graphic.

Pod A: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina
Pod B: Alabama, Auburn, Tennesee, Vanderbilt
Pod C: LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M
Pod D: Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma

Texas and TAMU need to play every year... bottom line... Texas/OK/TAMU/ and either Mizzu or Ark in one pod... LSU should be in with Both Miss schools period... and honestly Ark should be the 4th... we play for the Boot... Texas/OK/TAMU/Missouri LSU/Miss St/ Ole Miss/ Ark Bama/Tenn/Auburn/Vandy Georgia/Florida/SC/Kentucky

Texas and Texas A&M should be in the same pod. The schools are historic rivals and separated by 1 hour drive. A&M in the same pod with Ole Miss and MSU makes zero sense. There is no history or rivalry here just a 14 hour drive.

I hate conferences.

The pod idea sux. Stay east and west but fix the split for geography.

Hate adding the two teams. But I will be actually shocked if the SEC does not take them. Texas would instantly have the largest endowment in the SEC by a mile. And Oklahoma would be one of the biggest. Texas will have imploded 2 conferences of they do this (SWC and Big 12) The SEC should not let them in just to come bully our conference with that endowment like they have in the past.

SEC is going to need its own playoff at this rate.

This arrangement will never work because there would be two many schedules with too many schools.... let them stay where they are as the SEC is perfect now.

This alignment is dumb. Should be more geographic IMO. Swap A&M with Mizz. And out Bama, Auburn with FL and GA. So strong. Then put Tenn schools with USC and UK. That would be perfect.

Bama getting a cake walk through their pod

Right? They'd die having to play in a pod with powerhouses like Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Aggy every year.

How about we just tell Texass and Okie to go suck eggs. The conference is too damned big as it is. We don't need to gain two. We need to dump two (or four).

Exactly. Absolutely no chance they survive in a pod with Aggy, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

They are begging us to be rivals with aTm

I am so tired of this "LSU needs a rival" crap. Rivalries are natural and happen by themselves and are not created.

I think he's just trying to have at least 2 "good teams" in each pod. TAM would be better with D and Arky in pod C.

Geographically speaking, it makes sense.

So Pod D is the Big12 championship game

In other words, not no but hell no Bama and Florida in the same division. It would be funny if it wasn’t so f’ing obvious.

Arky, Mizzou, texas and oklahoma get a top 4 spot as a “pod winner” ? No thanks!! All second fiddle

Texas will frick things up. They frick up everything they touch. They're fans are soft, bandwagony and Davis-Wade is louder than DKR with half the fans. Will Texas ask Sanky to make it a penalty to throw horns down?
