    Those four should form a conference, then decide if they want to invite anyone from the Big 12

    Exactly. None of them care about academics and all of that BS. It's all about money.

    Wow. If Football withdraws from the NCAA, what, if any effect, would that have on funding of other sports at those powerhouse universities? Would that drain money needed to support non-revenue generating sports? Or if the new arrangement focuses on the schools sharing money earned from television rights, etc., is there a chance that there is a silver lining for Athletics, Golf, Swimming, and the rest?

    Was hoping this wouldn't happen. Nothing against Texas and Oklahoma. But I miss the old conferences. There's talk here that the SEC wants to make it a 20-team league. As a writer here said, that's not a conference anymore. That's an association. Cooter, that's interesting about the old conference. This is all being led by money of course. I guess this couldn't come at a better time for me since I'm losing interest in college sports because of the money.
    I think this is the first step of football breaking away from the NCAA. It's already less than useless for top tier football. One rumor I've heard is 2 20-team conferences. Those two conferences will form their own football association. All other sports stay under the NCAA umbrella. If that happens, I'd look for the SEC to grab FSU, Miami, NC, and Clemson. Big 10 would grab USC and Oregon, ND, and probably Ok St, KU, etc.

    There's also the long rumored 4 16-team conferences for 64 teams in the semi-pro league.

    Who knows how it'll shake out but it will in the next two years for sure.

    If this becomes a battle across the Mason-Dixon Line, I feel the outcome might be different this time around.

    SEC has been in serious contact with Ohio State, Michigan, Clemson, and Florida State. Not clear if this will materialize, but they have their eyes on a true 20 team MEGA conference. OU and Texas just the start.

    Trying to visualize what the Conference Track Meet would look like. Swimming? Gymnastics?

    Totally agree. In fact, 'Bama QB Bryce Young (with no starts in college, yet) has earned nearly $1M already from NIL licensing. It will be interesting to see how both of these factors play out in the coming decade.

    Never knew that Texas was in the precursor to the SEC. I guess they're going back "home" to a degree...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southe...ic_Association

    The original members were Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Johns Hopkins, North Carolina, Sewanee, Vanderbilt, and Virginia.[16][17] Virginia and North Carolina soon dropped out, even before the inaugural 1895 season.[18][19]

    Central (Eastern Kentucky), Clemson, Cumberland, Kentucky, LSU, Mercer, Mississippi A&M (Mississippi State), Southwestern Presbyterian University, Texas, Tulane, and the University of Nashville joined the following year in 1895 as invited charter members.[20][21] The conference was originally formed for "the development and purification of college athletics throughout the South".[22]
