Update: Texas and OU to formally declare intent to leave B12 within the next 24-48 hours.
Declaring this to the Big XII is the first step before petitioning the SEC. All of this expected to move very quickly

quote:

Texas and Oklahoma are expected to declare their intention to leave the Big 12 in as soon as "24-48 hours," a prominent BIg 12 source told CBS Sports on Friday. The Longhorns and Sooners are set to inform the Big 12 on Monday that they will not be renewing their grant of rights agreement with the conference, Horns247's Chip Brown reports. "I'm not saying it's 100%, but it's close to it in terms of being a done deal," a Big 12 source intimately involved in the process told CBS Sports. "It could be as soon as 24-48 hours and as long as two weeks before we have any clarity in terms of timing," said the source in reference to when Texas and Oklahoma would expect to formally join the SEC. If the programs were to effort an SEC debut in 2022, each could owe up to $80 million to the Big 12 as a penalty for leaving before the current TV rights contract expires in 2025.

Play your pod and 6 additional games. Play every opponent home and away every 4 years.

I've come to accept that it's done. Now, I'm waiting for the news to break about (1) which season will this be effective, and (2) what will the intra-conference realignment look like.

Are they announcing "formally" in 24-48 hours? Or are they officially leaving in 24-48 hours?

I get that, but once the "rumors" started, you have the stuff from SEC media days, followed by the skipped emergency conference call, then everything coming out today. It's entertaining to watch

I guess that means 4 big mega conferences now: probably SEC, ACC, Big 10, and Pac 12. All the small conferences and schools will take huge hits.

I'm kind of disappointed to lose our annual games against Florida, Alabama, and Auburn. Sure our schedule should get easier, but the anticipation for those games every year makes lsu football what it is.

And the best part is how Texas tricked Aggy into leaking it, speeding up the process for them.

Not a terrible pod grouping. Maybe the best balanced of all the ones I’ve seen.

I have a sneaking suspicion there will end up being one permanent opponent from each pod (keeps Auburn-Georgia alive, for example) while guaranteeing a few other tasty TV games every year (like maybe LSU-Oklahoma or Alabama-Texas as a couple of ESPN/ABC delights).
