Jimbo Fisher warns Texas, Oklahoma about joining the SEC: 'Be careful what you ask for'
The Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman dropped a bombshell report about Texas and Oklahoma having interest in joining the SEC.
Zwerneman wrote that a source indicates an “announcement could come within a couple of weeks concerning the potential addition of UT and OU to the league.” The SEC would then be set to become the first 16-team Super Conference in college football.
Ironically, the report surfaced while Texas A&M was at SEC Media Days, of course. Jimbo Fisher made his way to Paul Finebaum’s set on the SEC Network, and Finebaum dove into the subject a bit deeper with Fisher.
“Listen, it’s the best league in ball, and I’m sure they would like to be here,” Fisher told Finebaum. “That’s something that Commissioner Sankey and them will have to gauge and see if that’s something the SEC wants to do. That’s still hard to say.”
Fisher then gave Texas and OU a warning about joining college football’s best conference.
“I’ll say this though — be careful what you ask for in this league,” Fisher said laughing.
