Rumors surfaced earlier this week that the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns are looking at joining the Southeastern Conference. Yes, you read that right. Far and away the two largest football programs of the Big 12 Conference are rumored to be eager to leave and join the likes of the greatest football conference in college football history.

For the casual football fan and SEC TV deals, this addition would of course be a dream come true. More action-packed SEC matchups with intensity only rising every weekend.

However, for the Big 12 it would be incredibly decimating. The conference would lose its two largest football brands and two of the larger schools — period.

Per the Houston Chronicle, an announcement could come out within a couple of weeks. That’s simply maddening to thank about. While this rumor once again proves the SEC is the greatest conference in college football, it’s also concerning that it could suddenly become overwhelming. What are your thoughts on the Oklahoma/Texas rumors?
