On the Paul Finebaum Show today at SEC Media Days, Houston Chronicle author Brent Zwerneman told watchers that as soon as two weeks from now the SEC could become the first Power 5 conference to reach 16 teams. The most dominant conference since it created the “conference championship” game in football in 1992 has not let up its hold on football dominance but overall sports dominance. Texas A&M AD Ross Bjork pointed out at SEC Media Days today that “We want to be the only SEC program in the state of Texas” following learning that hated instate rival Texas and Oklahoma were interested in joining the SEC. In a report first confirmed by the aforementioned Chronicle, the news stunned not only Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher and his two players at SEC Media Days but the entire league. SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey responded to questions about the report in Hoover by saying “I do not respond to anonymous sources,”. It is clear that Oklahoma and Texas are very interested in the SEC but TV contracts, political pressure, and having to be approved by 11 of the 14 institutions already in the SEC will make it difficult to imagine the two joining without much difficulty. I will post more details in the coming days.
