Now that Oklahoma, Texas A&M and the Big 12 itself have all complained about Texas' potential Longhorn Network recruiting advantages, the only possible next step in the conversation is to assume everybody's going to the SEC. No, it's not? Well too bad.
SEC commissioner Mike Slive briefly addressed conference realignment rumors during an appearance on WJOX in Birmingham, clarifying his comment at SEC Media Days that the conference could add teams at the snap of a finger if it so desired:
What I said was, if being a superconference is 16, we could be 16 in 15 minutes by asking four schools. That's not what we're about. It's not that I'm talking about creating a superconference. I think we're super now. ... Looking ahead, one of my jobs is to make sure that we have the best interest of the league, long-term, at the forefront. ... I don't rule out any tool that would help us do that.
