Oklahoma blogger takes Finebaum tweet of a speculative comment by Colin Cowherd (boy, talk about instant credibility) and runs with it.

CF is over as we know it! Where will they Put OK? In the east maybe. How bout we have an SEC with South, East, and West Divisions. This is crazy. Fifty shades of crazy! God Help Us.🏈🎈
Why the new moniker Joy? We know that’s you by your signature over- use of capitol letters. By the way, how’s it going with the new blog you started after you banned GTP from your life?
Forget heading west- fill holes in the damned map! Add NC State & VA Tech.
Neither program offers anything of real value to the SEC. And please save the whole, “VT opens up the D.C TV market for us!” utter nonsense.
The would put OU and OK State in the west and move Bama and the cow college to the East.
That’s at least the best of a bad idea.
If OK were to join the SEC Okie State would have to be part of the deal. The OK legislature would make them part of the package or no deal. The divisions would then realign with Bama and Auburn going to the East and Mizzou going to the West.
And the 2 OK schools put in the West.
To Sankey and the suits in Birmingham:
Please do not expand to 16. 14 is already too many unless we replace Missouri or Texas A&M with a team that really is from the east.
Real SEC fans
I still stand by the idea that 12 was too many. Kick out USCe and Arkansas too.
If they deregulate championship games where teams can have them with 10, I’m OK with that.
Me, too. I’ve been preaching for years that if we had 10 members of the SEC we could go to 9 conference games and each team would then play every other team in a round robin format. That solves the problems of schedules favoring a certain team (cough..Missouri…cough) and some teams almost never playing each other. A real regular season conference champion could be crowned and we could still have the SECCG and a second post-season champ crowned, sort of like they do in basketball. Also, the split on the money would be bigger for each remaining school as 1/10th is a substantially bigger cut than 1/14th or 1/16th. It’ll never happen, though. It makes too much sense.
The day of P5 conferences shrinking is over.

Senator, unfortunately, you are correct. With the conference networks, it goes against economic sense to contract. They want to expand to increase the number of TV sets subject to the in-territory subscription rate.
I like how the author readily admits he’s just looking to up his page views.
Oh, and he lists recruiting as a potential long-term problem since “Oklahoma doesn’t have the same talent base as Mississippi.” Huh?
I don’t know what the mix is, but I think OU gets a lot of its players across the Red River in Texas. Recruiting will never be a problem for the Sooners.
Texas is to OU as Georgia is to AU
“In fall 2013, close to two-thirds of the University of Oklahoma’s 7,004 out-of-state undergraduate and graduate students at the Norman campus were from the Lone Star State.”
I think the College Board needs to put some of these analogies on the SAT, so schools can get a real idea of how smart an applicant is.
I wish we would schedule a non-conference game with either Texas or Oklahoma.
This wouldn’t surprise me at all, but OK ST is coming with them when they come.
Texas must be headed to the Pac12.
Texas must be headed to the Pecos
