What are everyone's thoughts about adding 2 teams to the SEC?

I think it is a good idea to add 2 teams to the SEC , and break the Lg up into 4 pods? JMO

I say no. The Big 12 would be ruined. We only have 5 super conferences as it is. Let’s not make it 4

I think we will see. Its all about the almighty contract dollar. If the TV networks can make more money ? Its a done deal? We shall see the almighty dollar runs everything?

I’m not thrilled about it but I also think it will happen. What will the Big 10 do now as well?

There is nothing to see. Iím sure it is going to happen if they are talking about it. The question was our thoughts and I think it is a bad idea to shove all the good teams in 1 conference

I would rather see 6-7 top conferences with no more than 10-12 teams in each. I want to see teams play every team in their conference once every season, not some teams every year and other teams every 2-3 years. That is just stupid and unbalanced. Play every team in your conference once and get a true champion

Same with hoops. I want you to play every team in conference twice. Home and away. If you have 16-20 teams in conference that canít happen. Again stupid to play some teams in your conference and not others and also unbalanced again

Alabama is a perfect example. They are playing Miami this season but not Georgia. What? You have no space on your schedule for a conference heavyweight but you can play Miami? That is just fucking stupid imo. Which game would have more influence in your conference standings? Alabama/Georgia

What is the point of a conference if you don’t play many of the teams in it

I agree with the above , I think you should play the big boys of your conference before playing out side schools. I think the SEC is big and strong enough conference. They do not need any other schools. I also agree that is is going to hurt or ruin the big 12. I hope this trend doesn't continue it is bad for coll football .

the big 12 had several seasons to fix their conference and have a conference championship game and they did nothing. Texas and Oklahoma are the only teams that bring revenue in the conference. lastly it's not if the TV networks can make more it's which TV network wins and which loses. One is about to lose the only two teams that are a draw from their conference while the other network is about to gain those top two teams . From a fan point of view you'll get some games that weren't normally possible. Don't care either way and won't make much difference. I guess if you hate the SEC you have more reason now

If the SEC adds Texas and Oklahoma, a path can be drawn to the conference quickly generating as much annual revenue as the NCAA does, $1.3 billion in the 2024-25 fiscal year.


College football: If SEC expands, it could match NCAA's $1.3B revenue


This is the most significant story.

By adding even more financial and political clout, the SEC is quickly replacing the NCAA in who calls the shots for major college sports decisions. (other than states and Congress)

It's bad when the dollar beats out winning. Oklahoma had a way easier path to the playoff, than having to play SEC opponents, and win an SEC championship! As for what Wayne is saying about Bama playing Miami instead of Georgia, I get the comment, but the conferences are so big now, you can't play every power in your conference. At least Miami is a respectable non-conference opponent.

You can't get rid of the NCAA by yourself as a university. But is it possible to do it if you have a super conference and new rules where individual athletes athletes can get paid? Seems like the NCAA has not done a thing recently except let Sandusky exploit kids and choose not to take a stand on anything. I think they are done and coll sports are changing.
We will see in the next few years where this goes? Does anyone else see the NCAA involved in college football in 5 to 10 years? Or will the power conferences be telling the NCAA how things are going to be in a power sift? I personally thing changes are coming. Big powerful NCAA institutions that make millions are tired of dealing with a NCAA that turns a blind eye to some issues and prosecutes other things. The Dollars rule the day?

The Spin may be the NCAA is bad, not Super Conferences or the Athletes?
