Former Texas A&M president skeptical Texas joins the SEC
It’s fun to talk about but the reality is there may be roadblocks standing in the way for Texas and Oklahoma if they truly plan to join the Southeastern Conference.
Former Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin pointed that out to John Talty of AL.com recently as the man that helped the Aggies leave the Big 12 for the SEC is well aware of all the issues that can arise once a move from one league to another is considered.
“Short of a total realignment of the Power 5 into a new world of four conferences, I don’t see this happening,” Loftin said according to AL.com. “But maybe this is the start of something like that.”
The speculation all began after Houston Chronicle reporter Brent Zwerneman broke the news that both Texas and Oklahoma were interested in joining the SEC. At this point, neither school has denied the rumors, however, they also have not confirmed the report.
The SEC has denied comment.
