    Chip Brown's new report

    A and M now has enough votes from the board of regents to move to the SEC. SEC officials along with Texas A and M is trying to convince OU to go with them. The AD wants to go where Texas goes. Other sources say some at OU do not want the PAC 10 and feel the SEC is a better fit. The SEC not interested in OSU so that may cause a problem in legislature. Meanwhile, Beebe may have a tv deal in the works worth 17 mil. per school if they can keep all 10 together. He is trying to get the parties involved to listen.

    That's very interesting. I think Beebe is going to try to pull anything that he can together. It's probably too little too late, but that TV deal sounds a little better if it were a B12 network.

    That 17mil isn't enough for Texas. If they stay...they want their own network....otherwise the P10 or B10 will likely offer $5M more or so.

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    I would love it if the new "Big Ten" had 12 members... and the new "Big 12" had 10 members.

    Couldn't they just trade names then?

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    Would the TV deal allow Texas to have its own network as well? That is the big question??

    Oh, yes if they stay they can have their own network. I forgot that part.

    I've been saying that could happen for 6months.

    BXII would have to add members though to remain viable long term.

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    I just need to know...will I be able to see ISU games? If that is now available, then I am on board. I don't understand the implications of a Texas network.

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    So wait, who does Brown all say is going to the SEC? They aren't going to add 3 teams. They'd probably add 2.

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    So far just Texas A and M. OU has to much pressure to stay with OSU and Texas. You don't go against T-boone in that state or you won't get re-elected.

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    SEC supposedly wants 2 teams. OU, Texas at the top. Would take A&M if they got one of the others with them.

    Re: Chip Brown's new report

    Chip did not say anything about an official invite. That seems to come after the deal is made, if you know what I mean.
