    The latest from Chip Brown on A&M...

    This article goes over a lot that's already been said. However, one of Chip's sources is saying, Aggies to be announced as an SEC member in three weeks, and that the SEC is looking to expand to 16 teams, which if true makes me a little nervous.

    Uggghh...

    They still want to play UT on Thanksgiving? Can you imagine them playing an SEC schedule every year and with UT being one of their OOC teams? They will be lucky to get to .500 most years.

    More rumors, rumors, rumors. I heard from an "inside" source that A&M said this and that. It starting to get very old very fast.

    Gahhh, can we just get this over with? A&M, you clearly don't want to be in the Big XII. The sooner you move on, the sooner the rest of the schools can move on.

    I don't like the idea of "superconferences". 16 teams is way too many. I think its dumb personally.

    Amen. Unfortunately we can't just go ahead and kick A&M out now because we want their $30million.

    Agreed. What's the point of conference where you never see half the conference..

    At least with 12 you'll play everyone on the other side 2x every 4 years. Get up to 16 and what do you do? Play 7 teams in your division and then one or two from the other 8 teams every year? (it could be forever between times that you see teams from the other division at home..) Some sort of convoluted 4 team pod system?

    I'm with you here. Better for this to be done quickly, whatever happens.

    Re: The latest from Chip Brown on A&M...

    The fact that ESPN has an interest in both the Big XII and the SEC is whats drawing this out. If it was a simple handshake agreement between A&M and the SEC this would be done by now.

    This is how a playoff system will be developed. Its inevitable at this point.

    I suspect they may end up becoming to unweildly and end up breaking apart like the old WAC did. At which point we'll be back to 8-12 team conference sizes, but of course we'll have sacrificed all the old rivalries and traditional conferences and not be able to easily get back to them.

    If Mizzou says no to the SEC we will be okay. If the SEC wants to raid the ACC, the Big 10, Big 12 and whats left of the ACC can raid the Big East and independents to get to whatever number they want.

    The ACC may stay together also.

    Agree.
    I think 10 teams is just about right actually.

    Anywhere from 9-12 is great, imho. Above 12 and things start getting messy.
