It’s not just about social and cultural demographics, but academics and athletic compatibility and economic impact. Both would gain tv footprint and open doors to recruiting. I really don’t like the idea of taking them into the conference because Texas has a reputation of bullying the B12 and may try to make the same impact here, and that’s not insightful to the needs of a Sahkalina or UGA that’s 800 miles away.
All of a sudden we are in a 10 game conference schedule too. Not to mention the sec west would be more like the nfc west.
Doubt it will happen IMHO unless Texas gives up their "selfish" revenue. Sankey and most all of the member institutions will not allow the "Horns" network to compete with the SEC network with all the revenue going solely to Texas.
Jimbo doesn’t get to vote. The president does. A&M loathes the horns w a passion of a thousand suns. They will vote no. So will Mizzou.
Won’t matter in the end. This will happen. But I think Sankey will put some things in place for the horns because of their reputation for bullying other conference members within the B12.
They are perhaps the most absurdly arrogant fan base in Cfb. Ask any Aggie or Boomer.
