 OU and Texas tried to leave years ago. The Power 5 schools are about to make 16 team super conferences and control the new playoff. It's whispers that they might leave the NCAA totally and create their own governing body. it's comparable but not a copy

It sounds like the 12 elite English, Spanish and Italian clubs that formed their own league.

We all knew this was coming sooner or later and with the SWAC poised to be entering into the fbs level of competition.  Don't think for one minute they aren't paying attention and are going to do everything in their power to avoid us from getting any piece of that pie. P5 version  of white flight.


Texas and Oklahoma could make their move to the SEC official in a matter of weeks, ESPN has confirmed.
The Austin American-Statesman reported Friday that a Big 12 source believed talks between the SEC and the two schools had been ongoing for more than six months, though SEC member Texas A&M had been left out of the discussions. An SEC source told ESPN's Heather Dinich that it's inaccurate that A&M was left out of the conversation.
The report also said the move could become official in a matter of weeks. A high-level administrator said his understanding of the situation mirrors that timeline
