One thing I’m not sure we have totally wrapped our minds around is what a cluster**** of unmet expectations a 16-team SEC with Texas and OU is going to be. The Oklahoma job will be *a lot* harder after the move is made.

OU GameDay Traditions/Proper Ways to Harass Texas Fans

So I'm a Sooners fan who has never been to a Sooners game. When I lived in Oklahoma it was a 6 hour drive to Norman and it just never happened. So I just watch on tv. Now I live in South Carolina and I'm super excited for us to join the SEC so I can at least go support our Sooners in person when they play at Carolina. I intend to be at every baseball, basketball and (hopefully) football game OU plays in Columbia!

This year the Sooners don't play Carolina but Texas will be here for a 3 game series (baseball) at Carolina. I will be there, wearing the new Horns Down shirt I ordered, but I'm wondering what the proper way is to taunt Texas players and fans? Is there a favorite method of harassment? I want to be obnoxious but without getting ejected. Is there something they really don't like? Any insecurities I should exploit? What are some good chants I can start and hopefully get the Carolina fans to join in on?

Edit: I got the distance wrong, it was about 5 hours from Norman not 6. Panhandle living is special!

"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.

The AP Poll and CFB more generally are already SEC heavy. How much will OU and Texas affect their dominance of the rankings? And how much will the Big 12 lose? Hypothetical comparison using AP Poll data from 2012-2020

I was curious about exactly how much Oklahoma and Texas' likely impending move to the SEC would make the top of the college football world even more SEC-heavy. Since realignment probably isn't going to impact the playoffs too much directly (and the playoffs aren't a very good way of looking at things holistically anyway), I thought AP poll results would be a better way of comparing teams' / conferences' relative strength over time so I could estimate exactly how much stronger the SEC is likely to get. The SEC already boasts an impressive collection of consistently top 25 teams, and as a result they've dominated the AP Poll more than any other conference since the last round of realignment in 2012. Check out this table, it shows:

  • How many AP Poll appearances each conference has had since the 2012 season,
  • What % of all AP rankings in that timespan were in each conference,
  • How many of their rankings were in the top 10, and
  • What % of all top-ten ranked teams were in each conference.

Table 1: AP Poll History Since 2012 by Conference (Actual)

Conference Total AP Poll Appearances % of All AP Poll Appearances No. of Top-10 Rankings % of All Top-10 Rankings
SEC 883 24.01% 486 33.03%
Big Ten 639 17.37% 289 19.64%
Pac-12 563 15.31% 175 11.90%
Big 12 545 14.82% 202 13.73%
ACC 456 12.40% 201 13.66%
American Athletic 213 5.79% 35 2.38%
FBS Independents 154 4.19% 82 5.57%

Western Athletic 11 0.30% 0 0%

Graph form for people who like graphs:

Total Appearances | LINK

Top-10 Appearances | LINK

As you can see, the SEC leads by a pretty substantial margin in all categories. Almost a third of all top-10 rankings since 2012 went to SEC teams, as did almost a quarter of all AP Poll rankings. The Big 10 is the runner-up, the Pac 12 comes in a pretty distant third, and OU and Texas' current home is all the way down in fourth place by total appearances and just barely in third for top-10 appearances.

In order to see what things would look like in a hypothetical world where the 2012-2020 seasons were replayed with OU and Texas in the SEC, I decided to re-calculate the first table, this time with all of OU and Texas' results counting for the SEC instead of the Big 12.

The SEC already dominates recruiting, but how will things change once OU and Texas join their ranks? Hypothetical comparison using 2012-2021 recruiting class ranking data

The other day I posted something comparing each conference's AP Poll performance since the last conference realignment in order to see how much more SEC-heavy the AP Poll might become in the near future. I also wanted to do something similar with recruiting data, so I made a few more tables / graphs real quick and I thought I'd post them here to add to the discussion.

First, I should clarify that I'm using recruit / recruiting class rankings from the collegefootballdata.com API (you can see the underlying data here). I'm not sure if there are competing ranking systems out there, but I'm using this because it's what I have readily available. I'm also assuming that most ranking systems are roughly similar anyway, but if that's not the case please let me know.

I took each conference and calculated these metrics:

  • Average recruiting class rank,

  • Average composite class score,

  • Number of top 10 classes,

  • Number of top 25 classes, and

  • Number of top 50 classes

to give you an idea of how well each conference has recruited since the last realignment in 2012.

Table 1: Recruiting Class History Since Last Conference Realignment

Conference Average Rank Average Comp. Score No. of Top 10 Classes No. of Top 25 Classes No. of Top 50 Classes
SEC 20.05 244.4679 48 98 135
Pac-12 36.01667 210.5627 11 42 90
Big Ten 38.32857 206.6245 16 42 98
ACC 39.58571 204.1549 12 35 90
Big 12 39.84 202.4438 9 23 69
American Athletic 80.85 147.4525 0 0 6
FBS Independents 95.10169 136.2475 4 10 11
Mountain West 95.40833 130.7252 0 0 1

Mid-American 103.7 121.3341 0 0 0
Sun Belt 107.48 114.3191 0 0 0

Graph form: No. of Top 10 Classes | LINK

As the table shows (and to probably nobody's surprise), the SEC has been really successful at recruiting. The SEC has netted almost fifty top 10 classes since 2012, with schools like Alabama and Georgia making the cut almost every year; meanwhile the Big 10 has barely broken 15. Even more troubling though, is the Big 12 -- if we do what I did in my last post and retroactively move OU and Texas to the SEC, the Big 12 will be left with a grand total of zero top 10 recruiting classes since 2012. That table is below; it's the same one as before, but with OU and Texas recruiting classes counted for the SEC instead of the Big 12.

Guide to Big 12 Bylaws: Remedies of other 8 schools go beyond the "Buyout" clause if Texas and OU begin play in SEC before expiration of the current Grant of Rights Agreement, likely influencing settlement negotiations

Thought I would do a bit more of a deep-dive on how the "Withdraw" process for the Big 12 actually works because I've heard a lot of discussion of the buyout but if reports are correct that Texas and OU are trying to leave the conference earlier than the expiration of the Grant of Rights in 2025 then the buyout isn't the actual governing provision.

For reference the Bylaws of the conference can be found here

First, there are two different documents that you will be hearing about. The first is the Bylaws which were adopted in 2012 once the current membership of the Big 12 was formed. This is the governing document of The Big 12 Conference, Inc. which is comprised of its 10 member institutions ("Members") and obligates the Members to remain in the conference for 99 years. Each member is represented by a Director on the Board of Directors that, depending on the matter at hand, can be considered either an "Interested Director" or a "Disinterested Director" as defined in Bylaw 1.5.2.2.

The other document that will be reference is the Grant of Rights Agreement which is the contract with between the Members and the Big 12 that gave the Big 12 ownership of each school's Tier 1 and Tier 2 TV rights and expires in 2025.

##The Withdraw Process

This is where it gets technical. Following the announcement of OU and Texas that they do not intend to renew the Grant of Rights agreement, OSU President Dr. Kayse Shrum (and other Big 12 presidents) released a statement that included the language:

>"We believe these conversations, which developed over a long period of time, are in clear breach of the bylaws of the Big 12 Conference and broke a bond of trust between our universities in existence for decades."

Clearly this is a nod to Bylaw 3.2(ii)(A) that states a "Withdraw" from the conference shall be deemed to have occurred when:

>"a Supermajority of Disinterested Directors by affirmative vote determines that such Member: (A) makes statements or takes actions that are determined by a Supermajority of Disinterested Directors to evidence the intent of such Member to withdraw from the Conference either currently or in the future"

I am unsure if OU/Texas anticipated this result at this time, but it now means that the other Members (which in their discretion they have the right to do) are going to formally declare OU and Texa
