More conference dominoes ready to fallSeptember 6th, 2011 at 9:32 pm by Roger Wallace under Sports
There are reports out of College Station that Texas A&M has received the invitation from the SEC and will accept it on Wednesday. So whats next? Oklahoma appears ready to lead a charge to the Pac 12 with Oklahoma State. Wednesday Bob Stoops said if Texas and OU were to somehow split up that he can live without the Texas-OU rivalry. So in the span of a few weeks UT could lose rivalries with A&M and Oklahoma, assuming Texas and A&M do not agree to a non-conference series? A lot still has to happen for that to happen, but its pretty obvious that when Texas A.D. DeLoss Dodds said nothing was off the table when it comes to the future of UT Athletics, he meant it. While the Pac 12 has to decide if they want to expand, the SEC has to decide how long they want a 13 team league. If they go for a 14th, seems like there is momentum for Missouri or West Virginia.
Mack Brown said on Monday that Texas will be fine but probably never imagined this might go down.
