SEC unanimously votes OU, UT into conference

The 14 SEC Presidents and Chancellors voted unanimously on Thursday to send invitations to Oklahoma and Texas. The sooners and longhorns have to officially accept the offer, which could happen as soon as Friday.

The board of regents for both Oklahoma and Texas have scheduled meetings on Friday morning where conference membership will be discussed. Oklahoma will meet in Oklahoma City and Texas will meet via conference call.

The move will happen no later than July 1, 2025 as the Big 12 media rights expire on June 30, 2025, but is expected to happen much earlier.

It is crazy to think that I could be writing about Texas and Oklahoma accepting invitations into the SEC tomorrow.

Rest In Peace Big 12.

2021 cbhsports NBA Mock Draft

1.Detroit Pistons-Cade Cunningham, Guard, Oklahoma State (Freshman)
No matter who has the pick, whether it be Detroit, Houston, or anyone else, no one is going to ignore the best all-around player in the draft. Cunningham is an exquisite passer, improving scorer, and talented perimeter defender.
2.Houston Rockets-Jalen Green, Guard, G-League Ignite
Jalen Green said himself if he went to college for a year, he would’ve been the number one pick. He said that a year after he changed the college basketball landscape by landing with the G-League Ignite. Green is an awesome scorer and a good defender that needs to improve his passing.
3.Cleveland Cavaliers-Evan Mobley, Center, USC (Freshman)
Mobley is the most talented big man in the draft. He has a decent jumper and is a pretty good rim protector. There’s a chance that the Cavs could go Gonzaga guard Jalen Suggs if they were to move on from Collin Sexton, but I’ll go Mobley for now.
4.Toronto Raptors-Jalen Suggs, Guard, Gonzaga (Freshman)
If you watched Jalen Suggs in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, there’s reason for him to go even higher. He is an awesome scorer, good passer, and good perimeter defender.
5.Orlando Magic-Jonathan Kuminga, Forward, G-League Ignite
Kuminga, similar to Jalen Green, would probably go higher in the draft if he got the college exposure his counterparts got. But, Kuminga is a pretty good scorer and can defend multiple positions. He will be a good fit in Orlando.
6.Oklahoma City Thunder-Scottie Barnes, Forward, Florida State (Freshman)
Scottie Barnes is a rangy, athletic forward that should help the Thunder longterm.
7.Golden State Warriors-Davion Mitchell, Guard, Baylor (Junior)
If Golden State doesn’t trade this pick for a third star, then this will be the pick. Mitchell is the best perimeter defender in the draft that showed his scoring ability off in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. He is the perfect guy to come off the bench and replace Stephen Curry when he needs rest.
8.Orlando Magic-Moses Moody, Guard/Forward, Arkansas (Freshman)
Despite having a quiet NCAA Tournament, Moses Moody should go anywhere from the seventh pick to the end of the lottery. Orlando could be a fit, as they are always looking for perimeter scorers that can defend. Moody projects as a three and d star that can really shoot it.
9.Sacramento Kings-James Bouknight, Guard, Connecticut (Sophomore)
Bouknight is a phenomenal shooter that helped Connecticut get through their first season back in the Big East. With Buddy Hield likely on the way out, Bouknight will complement De’Aaron Fox well.
10.New Orleans Pelicans-Keon Johnson, Guard, Tennessee (Freshman)
Johnson is a freak athlete that will go along with Zion Williamson very well. While the Pelicans could use a shooter, they can address that need later in the draft.

Aaron Rodgers shows up at Green Bay training camp

Aaron Rodgers has returned to Green Bay Packers this morning. The MVP returned to work for the first time since his postgame interview following their loss to Tampa Bay in the NFC Championship Game.

By showing up on Tuesday, when veterans were mandated to report for training camp, Rodgers will avoid the $50,000 daily fine for missing camp-related events. Rodgers skipped all off-season activities, including the mandatory minicamp in June. The team could fine him more than $93,000 for missing that.

Just because Rodgers reported doesn’t necessarily mean he will practice when the team hits the field for the first time Wednesday. It’s possible he and the team will agree that he should sit out until the final details are ironed out.

That makes the 2021 a possible last-dance situation for Rodgers in Green Bay, as there has been gripe between him and the franchise since the team picked his replacement in the 2020 NFL Draft, Jordan Love.

Longhorns, Sooners inform Big 12 they will not renew grant of media rights

On Monday morning, Oklahoma and Texas officially notified the Big 12 on Monday that they will not be renewing their grants of media rights after their expiration in 2025, according to a joint statement released by both schools. The statement said “Providing notice to the Big 12 at this point is important in advance of the expiration of the conference’s current media rights agreement,” the statement said. “The universities intend to honor their existing grant of rights agreements. However, both universities will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving collegiate athletics landscape as they consider how best to position their athletics programs for the future” in a report from ESPN.

Big 12 sources gives the two schools some “wiggle room” and doesn’t fully guarantee that the flagship schools would remain in the league through 2025. The possibility remains that they will pay the $75-80 million penalty for leaving early, while also giving the required 18 months’ notice according to Big 12 bylaws. The statement went on to acknowledge the disappointment the fellow eight Big 12 schools should be having but they also acknowledged the ongoing change coming to college athletics.

The next step would be for the two schools to formally let the SEC know they want to join the conference. Then the SEC would need 11 of its 14 presidents and chancellors to agree to extend an invitation to the two schools. Big 12 officials are wondering if and when that might happen.

SEC ADs were scheduled to participate in their weekly call Monday afternoon. The call had been rescheduled because of the league media days. The Big 12 executive committee met with the presidents of Texas and Oklahoma on Sunday. They are still trying to understand exactly what Oklahoma and Texas are looking for. Oklahoma and Texas officials were not immediately available for comment at the meeting. Despite earlier reports that the SEC would move forward with the current east-west division format, an SEC official said that the “pod” format is looking like the way the league could move forward. If the move were to go through, it is unclear how 2020s conference realignment moves would affect non-football sports.

Texas, Oklahoma could be in SEC as soon as 2022

After trying to get Oklahoma and Texas to remain in the Big 12 by offering them a financial structure that would offer more of the conference’s revenue, the Big 12 expects the Sooners and Longhorns to make an exit from the conference by telling them they will not extend their contract on Monday following June 30, 2025. It will be decided by Wednesday if Oklahoma and Texas get the 11 of 14 votes they need to receive an invitation from the SEC to join the conference. After mainly hearing reports after Texas A&M’s hard “no” at the SEC Media Days on Wednesday, it is hard to believe everyone in College Station will say the same thing. It is likely that the worse it can be for Oklahoma and Texas is a 13 to 1 vote when it comes to SEC institutions voting them in and the two powers receiving an invitation. Oklahoma and Texas have both “committed to leaving” the Big 12 but haven’t officially done that yet. It is likely they will each buy out of their 76$ million contract that goes the Big 12 within the next 18 to 24 months which would send them to the SEC as soon as 2022 but by at least 2023. The contract with the Big 12 goes through June 30, 2025. Reports are also saying that the “pod” format will not will work. Likely a division format, looking like this will be used:

East
Alabama
Auburn
Florida
Georgia
Kentucky
South Carolina
Tennessee
Vanderbilt

West
Arkansas
LSU
Mississippi (Ole Miss)
Mississippi State
Missouri
Oklahoma
Texas
Texas A&M

Likely the SEC would move to a nine or ten game conference model and eliminate permanent cross-divisional games (Alabama-Tennessee, Auburn-Georgia, Arkansas-Missouri in what would be the former model). Thanksgiving rivalries for the SEC would be interesting. This is a topic that is very near and dear to my heart as the SEC ripped Arkansas’ game with LSU on Black Friday away from them and put the tigers with Texas A&M. Now that Texas and Texas A&M are in the same conference again it makes things simpler and more difficult. Alabama-Auburn, Mississippi State-Ole Miss, Tennessee-Vanderbilt, and Texas-Texas A&M would likely continue (or restart) their rivalries. It should also be assumed that even if the SEC adds a game or two to the conference schedule that Florida-Florida State, Georgia-Georgia Tech, Kentucky-Louisville, Oklahoma-Oklahoma State and South Carolina-Clemson should continue as interconfertnce rivalries. Now, dealing with the remaining three teams becomes important. Football wise, Missouri has won the last six against Arkansas, but many have been close games. Arkansas’ last win over Missouri was a 28-3 beatdown in 2015. Most likely, however, the SEC will choose to act first and make sure their “darling” LSU gets a sure-fire game on Black Friday and matches the tigers with the Razorbacks once again. It will be difficult for Missouri to find an opponent on Thanksgiving weekend, so if they’re okay with it, they will just either schedule a “cupcake” game or make it their bye week.

As of this point, it is looking like the Big 12 is dead. Kansas and Iowa State are the two most likely headed to the Big Ten, as both have been on calls with the conference within the last 48 hours. Baylor, TCU, and Texas Tech have been linked (and have reached out to) the Pac-12. West Virginia has done the same with the ACC but it is unclear that the Mountaineers will be able to join due to the conference’s academic standards. Notre Dame is under contract with the ACC, and if they want to be in line with the upcoming 12-team college football playoff, contractually they will have to join the ACC. Of course, similar to Oklahoma and Texas, they can buy out of their contract, join the Big Ten and make more revenue there, but like every other move, that will take time more than anything else. In that effect, Colorado, Oregon, UCLA, and USC have reached out to the Big Ten. To be honest, it is hard to worry about that right now with Texas and Oklahoma likely moving forward in their plans with the SEC. It is hard to imagine division alignments for any of these other conferences. The Name, Image, Likeness laws being passed to eliminate amateurism set this in motion. Less than a decade from now college sports could be split into the Big Ten and the SEC, who make the most and second most revenue of any conference.

When moves associated with the ACC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 become more of a reality I will make more posts about them.

The future of the SEC following UT, OU report

Right as Texas A&M reached the stage at SEC Media Days yesterday, a report from The Houston Chronicle that Texas and Oklahoma had reached out to the SEC about joining the conference surfaced. A&M was very clear about the fact that they wanted to be the only school from Texas in the conference, clearly saying they would not be one of the institutions in the conference that would approve the Longhorns and Sooners move to the conference (A school needs 11 of 14 schools in the conference to approve their invitation).

In Hoover, at the SEC Media Days today, the SEC Network crew proposed a new alignment for the league if the Sooners and Longhorns join the conference:

Pod A: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina
Pod B: Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
Pod C: LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M
Pod D: Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas

9-game conference schedule
Play 2 games against each of the other pods
Every team will host every team at least once every 4 seasons

This could work because it is a more regional style of football but there would be rivalries separated that are now “interpod” games. Sadly, SECN’s proposal doesn’t include Texas and Texas A&M in the same pod. In my opinion, the SEC Offices will not let that happen. My idea is moving either Arkansas or Missouri to pod C and sending A&M to Pod D. Pod A and Pod B work efficiently, though.

Here is what I like better:

East
Alabama
Auburn
Florida
Georgia
Kentucky
South Carolina
Tennessee
Vanderbilt

West
Arkansas
LSU
Mississippi State
Missouri
Oklahoma
Ole Miss
Texas
Texas A&M

A nine-game conference schedule can be played with this format, even if the SEC retains their division format. Swapping Missouri over to the west for Alabama and Auburn to the east will make for a more balanced conference. Personally, dropping cross-over games would be best for the conference. By adding a ninth (or even tenth) conference game, rotating who you play in the opposite division will make the league scheduling better.

Texas, Oklahoma interested in SEC

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.

Arkansas Football pre-2021 SEC Media Days Update

Arkansas seniors Grant Morgan (LB) and Myron Cunningham (OL) will represent Arkansas at the 2021 SEC Media Days, July 19-22 in Hoover, Alabama. Both players will be sixth-year seniors who took advantage of the NCAA’s eligibility relief that allowed them to return to school for an extra year.

If you forgot, here is the hogs 2021 schedule:
9/4 Rice
9/11 Texas
9/18 Georgia Southern
9/25 Texas A&M (Arlington)
10/2 at.Georgia
10/9 at.Ole Miss
10/16 Auburn (Homecoming)
10/23 UAPB (Little Rock)
11/6 Mississippi State
11/13 at.LSU
11/20 at.Alabama
11/26 Missouri

If Arkansas were to win “cupcake” games over Rice, Georgia Southern, and UAPB, Arkansas fans can reasonably expect six wins in 2021.

According to 247Sports, Arkansas has the 18th best class in 2022 with 15 commitments.

Muss Bus is in full swing

Arkansas basketball takes no days off. They even kick boxed and climbed rock walls in their free time.

Arkansas Guard/Forward Moses Moody is looking to become the first lottery pick in Razorback history. After signing with Klutch Sports Agency, he and five other players in the 2021 NBA Draft competed at Klutch’s Pro Day earlier in the week. He looked like a lottery pick among the others.

Arkansas is also among finalists for Oral Roberts transfer Kevin Obanor. Obanor is a familiar name to Razorback fans because the hogs beat Oral Roberts twice last season, once in December and once in the Sweet 16. Arkansas and Texas Tech are the two finalists for his services. If he were to join the hogs, they would be pushed immediately into pre-season top five conversation and would be one of if not the clear favorite to win the SEC. Obanor would join fellow transfers Au’Diese Toney (Pittsburgh), Stanley Umude (South Dakota), Chris Lykes (Miami), Jaxson Robinson (Texas A&M). (Update: Obanor has committed to Texas Tech).

Multiple reports confirmed Arkansas will meet Kansas State in their opener in the 2021 Hall of Fame Classic on November 22 at 9 PM ET on ESPN2. The Razorbacks will play either Cincinnati or Illinois the following day. Here is their updated schedule as far as we know for 2021-2022:

11/13 Gardner-Webb
11/22 Kansas State (Kansas City,MO) (Hall of Fame Classic)
11/23 Cincinnati/Illinois (Kansas City,MO) (Hall of Fame Classic)
12/1 Central Arkansas
12/11 Oklahoma (Tulsa,OK)
12/21 Elon
1/29 West Virginia (Big 12/SEC Challenge)

Arkansas landed the top player from Alabama, four-star wing Barry Dunning (no. 77) and four-star combo guard Derrian Ford (no. 50), the third ranked player in Arkansas according to 247Sports.

In the most recent way-too-early ESPN Top 25, the hogs are ranked 13 and seeded number 4 in the south region in Joe Lunardi’s latest Bracketology.

Diamond Hogs return surplus of talent following 2021 MLB Draft

Following a season where they were ranked number one for most of the season, it was expected that Arkansas would lose a lot of production from their 2021 season. They did, losing nine players and five commits in the MLB Draft. Pitcher Kevin Kopps, outfielder Kevin Kopps, pitcher Ryan Costeui, catcher Casey Opitz, pitcher Patrick Wicklander, pitcher Lael Lockhart, pitcher Caden Monke, pitcher Elijah Trest, and catcher/designated hitter Charlie Welch were all drafted as members of the 2021 team. It is unclear if Charlie Welch will return or go pro but all others are definitely not expected to return. Signees Max Muncy, Braylon Bishop, Jordan Viars, Drew Gray, Drake Varnado, and Brenden Dixon were drafted as well. Veteran outfielder/designated hitter Matt Goodheart was signed by the Phillies on Wednesday, thus he will not return either.

Surprising returnees from the 2021 team include first baseman Brady Slavens and shortstop Jalen Battles. Third baseman Jacob Nesbit announced he was stepping away from baseball yesterday. He will forgo his last two years and become an administrative graduate assistant.

Arkansas pitcher Kevin Kopps won the 43rd Golden Spikes Award on Thursday. Kopps becomes the second Razorback ever to win the award (Andrew Bennitendi) with a 12-1 record, 0.90 ERA. (best by Razorback of all-time), and 0.76 WHIP. Arkansas becomes the fifth school have multiple winners (Arizona State (3), Florida State (3), Cal State-Fullerton (3), and San Diego State (2). There’s an argument that can be made that Kopps is the most dominant reliever of all time. Kopps won all of the major college baseball awards this season including the Spikes, the Dick Howser Trophy, Collegiate Baseball and D1Baseball National Player of the Year awards, Perfect Game/Rawlings and College Baseball Foundation Pitcher of the Year awards and the NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award in addition to being a unanimous first team All American and winning SEC Pitcher of the Year.He gave up less than 10 home runs, a few of them coming in his lone start of the season. In game three of the Fayetteville Super Regional, Kopps had a great outing. The final pitch he threw as a Razorback was a game-winning home run by NC State. But, he should definitely not be remembered for that.

Florida, Oklahoma, Michigan, UNC make up field of inaugural Jumpman Invitational

Hey guys welcome back to college basketball news posts. I promise as both the college basketball (and college football) seasons approach, I will make more of these news posts. I also promise that I will finish up with the SEC college football previews before the start of August, with the Ole Miss preview being finished next. Then, I will make an update post.

On Thursday the Charlotte Sports Foundation announced a three-year deal with Jordan Brand to host the Jumpman Invitational, a holiday college basketball event featuring Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, and Oklahoma. The four schools were the first to sign with Jordan Brand. The inaugural event will be played December 20-21, 2022, and will feature both the men’s and women’s teams playing in one game per year.

The Hubert Davis era at North Carolina is hitting a stride. The Heels landed talented 6’11 Marquette transfer Dawson Garcia. Garcia announced his decision to withdraw from the 2021 NBA Draft and head to Chapel Hill in an Instagram post on Thursday. Familiarity is starting to resume in Chapel Hill as Garcia joins talented forward Armando Bacot to form one of the country’s most talented front courts.

2021 cbhsports NBA Finals Preview

2021 NBA Finals
2.Suns
3.Bucks

Schedule:
*If necessary*
Game 1: July 6, 9 PM ET, ABC
Game 2: July 8, 9 PM ET, ABC
Game 3: July 11, 8 PM ET, ABC
Game 4: July 14, 9 PM ET, ABC
*Game 5*: July 17, 9 PM ET, ABC
*Game 6*: July 20, 9 PM ET, ABC
*Game 7*: July 22, 9 PM ET, ABC

For the first time in so many years, there is no LeBron James or Stephen Curry in the NBA Finals. In fact, we saw them in the NBA’s newest addition to the playoffs this postseason, the play-in game, where James’ Lakers took care of Curry’s Warriors with LeBron’s game-winning three. The reason I say this is in the opening round the Suns eliminated LeBron for the first time ever in the first round. James’ record is now 14-1 in the first round. But, that is not what we are here to talk about. Of course, we are here to talk about the 2021 NBA Finals. The Chris Paul and Devin Booker led Phoenix Suns are set to battle against guard/forward Khris Middelton (20.4 points, 6 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game), guard Jrue Holiday 17.7 points, 6.1 assists, 4.5 rebounds per game), and the Milwaukee Bucks. Two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo (28.1 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists per game) has been sidelined with an injury for the Bucks, but Milwaukee was able to win games five and six in the Eastern Conference Finals over the Atlanta. Phoenix went 8-0 in last season’s “bubble” before not being able to qualify for last season’s playoffs. In the off-season they added veteran point guard Chris Paul (16 points and 9 assists per game this season), who was a Finals appearance away from cementing his legacy as an NBA Hall of Famer entering the year. Paul has helped young stars (guard) Devin Booker and (big man) DeAndre Ayton out guiding the Suns to their first Finals appearance since 1993. Booker has averaged 25.6 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists per game while Ayton has averaged 14 points and almost 11 rebounds. With both teams winning their conference finals in six games, the match up can be seen as one as even as any NBA Finals match up we have seen since LeBron James’ Miami Heat faced off versus Tim Duncan’s San Antonio Spurs in the summers of 2013 and 2014. Of course, with two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo out for at least the first game or two, the Suns need to use that and home court advantage the first two games of the series to get an early series lead and finish the Bucks off before the “Greek Freak” comes back. It will be up to the aforementioned Khris Middelton and Jrue Holiday as well as big men Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis to get the Bucks going.

Prediction: Suns in 7

I hope everyone enjoys the 2021 NBA Finals :).

For the 2022 class Coach Musselman already has Arkansas three-star wing Joseph Pinion committed:
142.Joseph Pinion (#40SF) Morrilton,AR (Morrilton)

If you want to get a better look at recruiting for Arkansas basketball in 2022 take a look at this article by HawgBeat.

Moses Moody, Arkansas’ leading scorer during the 2020-2021 season, is attending the 2021 NBA Draft Combine this week. He has and still is looking to make sure he cements himself as a lottery pick in this year’s NBA Draft. Moody, who played high school basketball at Parkview and North Little Rock before taking his talents to the prestigious Montverde Academy near Orlando before coming to the hill, would be Arkansas’ first lottery pick ever, meaning he would get selected anywhere from picks 1-14.

I will make another update when we get more news.
