Sankey won’t directly address whether or not that’s true, but he did acknowledge that change appears to be inevitable.

Let’s read between the lines of Sankey’s comments. He’s making it clear that he doesn’t intend on wading into the reports about Oklahoma and Texas, but at the same time acknowledged that the landscape of college football is quickly changing.

It seems pretty obvious that he’s acknowledging the fact that Oklahoma and Texas might come to the SEC without having to directly say it.

I’m not sure anyone would have believed you, but here we are. It appears to be a very real possibility.

Let us know in the comments if you think the Longhorns and Sooners should make the jump to the SEC.
