If someone says something about you that is not true you would just say "Hey, that ain't true."
If something is said about two people either one can say "Hey, that ain't true."
Right now the answer to the question of just what is going on between Texas AnM and the SEC goes a little something like this:
"We at the Southeastern Conference/Texas AnM can neither confirm nor deny any current real or imaginary alleged allegations in regards to what may or may not be certain possibly perceived advances and or offers for what may or may not be extended and/or accepted membership into any said structure that could be viewed as something in the area of an athletic conference by anyone real or imaginary that may or may not be currently employed by our organization.".......... So.....AnM is in then, right? Right.
When there is smoke there is usually fire and this thang is smokin' like Joe Frazier. I think that AnM is already in by terms of an oral contract between Slive and Gene Stallings (who we automatically assume runs each and every facet of that University). The real question is who do we bring in for balance in the East. I believe that since AnM has at least a small amount of say in something for the first time ever; they will block Oklahoma, Oklahoma St.,and maybe Mizzou from getting that 14th bid. That means the SEC would have to look at the ACC.
Slive is looking for two things here: 1)
V.T.- Wash DC (9th), Roank-Lynch (67th)
Chokelahoma- OkCity (45th)
Texas: 11 (43)
N. Carolina: 5 (6)
Virginia: 2 (6)
Missouri: 1 (1)
W.Virginia: 0 (0)
Oklahoma: 0 (2)
So by the numbers here is how the SEC would rank prospective members:
1. Texas AnM: Recruiting (1) TV Market (1)
2. North Carolina: Recruiting (2) TV Market (2)
3. Virginia Tech: Recruiting (3) TV Market (3)
4. Missouri: Recruiting (tie-4th) TV Market (4th)
Two for the West and Two for the East without stepping on any toes. As for the other teams being named.
The following teams will be blocked by a current SEC member:
Clampsun by South Carolina and Georgia (Georgia only out of spite and cause it is funny)
Lousiville by Kentucky
Florida State by Florida and Georgia
Miami by Florida
Georgia Tech by Georgia, Auburn, and Tennessee
Chokelahomo by Texas AnM
Oklahoma St. by Texas AnM
