Texas and Oklahoma have taken a huge step towards joining the SEC.

Well, there it is, folks. The statement we’ve all been waiting for is officially out. The Sooners and Longhorns have taken the first major step towards joining the SEC and ditching the Big 12.
I’d suggest everyone buckle up because we’re about to see chaos unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the history of college football.

It’s not longer a question of whether or not Oklahoma and Texas leave the Big 12. That’s a done deal. At this point, it’s just a question of when it happens.
Judging how much has changed over the past week, I’d speculate that both programs will be gone sooner than later.
Once the Sooners and Longhorns leave, the Big 12 will likely collapse.
