Texas and Oklahoma are the two biggest programs in the Big 12. The SEC is the best conference in college football.
But there are a number of ramifications that come from this reported story. First off, it’s not a done deal that both these schools will be joining the SEC. Especially if Texas A&M has anything to do with it.
Then there are subjects like television contracts, scheduling, what to do with divisions in the SEC. It’s all incredibly complicated.
Adding Texas and Oklahoma to the league wouldn’t have the same impact that it would have on Georgia compared to Texas A&M, Missouri and some other programs. The Longhorns and Sooners joining the SEC would though fundamentally alter the college football landscape.
