needed to join the SEC.
I would be stunned if they didn't get the 11 votes, but it would be cause for celebration if they couldn't get in the SEC after all.
I would love to see them and the SEC feast on some humble pie.

Maybe 4 different schools vote NO thinking theirs will

be the only NO vote?

I'll be stunned if it is not a unanimous yes vote

The question is, do they have three other friends in the league to vote with them?

I can think of several who, at least from a competitive standpoint, will not benefit at all from the addition of OU and Texas.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


A&M, Mizzou and Arky are all likely to vote NO.

So it really only takes 1. But I don't think that'll happen.

Thing is, a team such as Vanderbilt could cement their spot in the SEC going forward by "selling" their vote to such a coalition.

It's like a game of Survivor!

Must have seen ESECPN's new offer, especially after they dump TexSpen. The new numbers will be $80+mil, and other schools can't compare with their conference.

It's gonna be 64 with South, East and West

A&M has reached out to South Carolina, Florida, to pursue a NA vote. If I were to guess it is over if the SEC or Clemson/FSU explore options in the future. That it would damage the SEC schools.

It wouldn’t have gotten this far if the votes

Weren’t secured. Now what the lesser brand schools should consider…. If it takes the same 75% to remove someone then you just added 2 big boys who might vote to one day kick Vandy Missouri and 2 of the following out : Ole Miss, MSU, UofSC, UK. 12 could force 4 out the door……

If true, wouldn't that be MORE reason for a few to vote no?

I agree that if fewer than 4 vote no, they are exposing themselves, but even a unanimous yes vote would not prevent the new membership from taking aim at a few weak sisters, and the two newest members would likely be automatic votes for the majority.

. It absolutely would. If you vote yes because all you see is $ signs then you may pay the price down the road as that 75% would be obtainable to remove members(assuming the % is the the same and doesn’t take a unanimous vote). I just don’t think any of them are looking at it like that. I think behind the scenes it was 13-1 and the public facing vote will be 14-0. Kind of like when the B10 postponed their season originally.

or the SEC can lie about the voting results like the B1G did***

I talked to my one brother in Arkansas and both of his son-in-laws, who are big Razorback fans, do not care for Texas at all. This is an unofficial poll but it is something to think about. Texas is everybody's problem but not Oklahoma.

You guys are all dreaming. That is not how this works. They would not have applied in the first place publicly if they didn’t already know that they had the votes. This process has been going on for over 6 months.

By the time they ACTUALLY apply, there has already been a vote. Swofford has said that several times when the ACC expanded. By the time it’s public the decision has already been made. The current show is just a formality.
