    I kinda hope the SEC unanimously votes to not allow Texas in, just to humble them

    The SEC's 10-year contract with ESPN/ABC will allow member schools to make an even larger financial investment in athletics and trigger the next round of battles between the Big Ten and SEC for dominance of the college sports landscape, increasing the possibility the two leagues leave the rest of the Power Five in the dust.

    ESPN/ABC will pay the SEC "in the low $300 million range" annually, according to Sports Business Journal, a significant increase on the $55 million the league makes per year from its contract with CBS....

    The lucrative agreement, which goes into effect for the 2024 season, could allow the SEC to overtake the Big Ten as the NCAA's richest conference. Tax records from the 2018-19 fiscal year reviewed by USA TODAY Sports showed the Big Ten generating more than $780 million in revenue and paying out about $55.6 million to each of the conference’s 12 longest-standing members.

    CBS will continue to air first tier SEC games Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. ET and some Saturday evenings through 2023.

    The SEC generated $720.6 million in revenue and averaged $45.3 million in payouts to the 13 member schools that received full shares during the 2019 year. (Mississippi did not get a full share because of its football team was banned from postseason play.)

    During the same year, the Big 12 reported payouts ranging from $38.2 million to $42 million, the ACC from $27.6 million to $34 million and the Pac-12 about $32.2 million.

    SEC should make money off a schedule lottery show. You get like 3-4 protected games then every year they draw lots to see who you draw with live coach and AD reactions. Like I want to see Texas get Bama, UGA, LSU and watch them pretend to be excited.

    Should also look into seeing if they can get another Vince young or Ricky Williams

    the only time they’ve been really good over the last 25 years is when they’ve been able to pull in one of the best college players of all time

    Could’ve kept it rolling had they tried to recruit Johnny football and griffin as QBs instead of defensive backs

    I’m sure sark will be awesome though he definitely is not drinking anymore and those 7-5 seasons at Washington and usc when he got to play Oregon state and shit are so long ago.

    he learned a lot under saban such as it’s easy to be good when you have first rounders at every single position on offense

    I cannot confirm all of the details below and, therefore, I am not reporting the following. I want to be very clear about that. But you all subscribe to RRS in large part because you want an inside look at what is going on with Texas Tech athletics, and there's obviously a lot going on. This is an instance, and there will likely be more instances like this in the coming days and weeks, where I feel good enough about certain details lining up with what I've heard elsewhere to pass it along. Let's call it informed chatter.

    I spoke with a long-time source with close ties to Oklahoma State today. Here's what he told me:

    ... Mike Holder, Oklahoma State's former athletic director, has been working with various individuals at Texas Tech with the objective of getting the Red Raiders and Cowboys into the Pac-12.

    ... Oklahoma State may have a chance at a Big Ten invitation.

    ... If Oklahoma State goes to the Pac-12 with Texas Tech, it would likely be as part of a foursome that includes Kansas and Kansas State.

    ... If Oklahoma State ends up in the Big Ten, then Texas Tech, TCU and two others would end up in the Pac-12.

    ... The source thinks that Oklahoma State wants to stay linked with Texas Tech but that only happens with the Pac-12.

    ... The reports that the Big Ten is considering USC is great news for Texas Tech and possibly Oklahoma State because Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff will want to keep USC happy and expansion into Texas does that.

    ... Nothing will happen until the SEC officially accepts Oklahoma and Texas as members, which could happen on Friday at some point. That will get the ball rolling.
