Houston Chronicle: Texas, Oklahoma reach out to SEC about joining conference

That probably falls to someone higher than him. JD is only a bit player in something like this.

Not true. He's #2 here. The strategy call last night with the remaining B12 members were the Presidents and ADs, and apparently the ADs did a lot of the legwork. Donati HAS to make alliances with Hocutt and whoever the Oky State AD is. And he needs to be telling Baylor that we are friends.

Adding any group of 5 schools is going to turn the Big 12 into a group of 6 conference. No way the football champion of a Big 12 with UH and Memphis/Cincy is given a sniff of the playoff.

outside shot of attracting Arkansas and Mizzou. Sadly could use A&M defection but they don’t want to appear to be running scared.

Let’s be real … whatever is left of the Big 12 will be a group of 6 conference without OU/Texas, and maybe Kansas and others.

A gutted B12/AAC merger has no more relevance than the current AAC has but if its all we got, than its all we got. Have a hard time believing we would retain an auto bid to the college football playoff so essentially a "New B12" is just another G5 conference with slightly more fire power. Not necessarily a bad thing if we can retain some recruiting prowess but I highly doubt that happens.

We need OU/UT to pay us out quickly. That money will buoy us while we figure out a life of penny pinching.
