It sounds like Texas and Oklahoma going to the SEC might be a lot closer to a done deal than people realize.
According to Austin American-Statesman’s writer Kirk Bohls, the two programs moving to the SEC is “almost done.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
He also reported that Texas A&M’s leadership has been left out of discussions, which have reportedly been going on for months.
Prominent Big 12 source tells the American-Statesman the Texas-OU move to the SEC is almost done. “They’ve been working on this for a minimum of 6 months, and the A&M leadership was left out of discussions and wasn’t told about it.” Move could become official in a week.

It really does seem like this situation is much further along than anyone realized. News broke about the potential move just a couple days ago, and we’re now finding out discussions have reportedly been happening for months.

Not only have discussions been happening, but the Aggies have been kept in the dark. Why would that happen?
You can’t sabotage the move if you only find out at the 11th hour!
Ross Bjork says he was unaware of Texas/OU interest in joining the SEC. SEC ADs have not discussed the issue, he says.
It’s clear where the Aggies stand.
“There’s a reason why Texas A&M left the Big 12 – to be stand alone & have our own identity. That’s our feeling,” he says.

This sounds like it’s pretty much a done deal at this point, and we’re soon going to be staring at a different landscape in college football. What a wild sport.
