Greg McGarity Has Your Back

Preserving the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry is his top priority, but, if need be, he is open to discussing a nine-game SEC schedule. Go 'Dawgs!

SEC Announces Changes to Baseball Tournament

Ten teams will now be invited to Hoover, as a result of the league's increase from twelve to 14 teams. We're still awaiting word on the reworked 2012 SEC football schedule. Go 'Dawgs!

New York Times Says Mizzou Move to SEC Imminent

Personally, my stance on SEC realignment at this point is, "Just roast the turkey, don't tell me how the bird grew up," but this is breaking news, and C&F, as always, is all over the latest over at Team Speed Kills. I don't welcome this move, but it's looked likely for a while that this was where expansion was headed, so we have to make the most of it. However, Mike Slive is going to have to show me a press conference before I believe SEC football is coming to the Show Me State. Go 'Dawgs!

I don't care who you are, this is funny! Go 'Dawgs!

GwinnettGamecock's Take on Where the SEC Now Stands

It's a good assessment of the Southeastern Conference's stature in the wake of a conference expansion exercise that ended with a whimper rather than a bang. Go 'Dawgs!

Stick a Fork in Conference Expansion . . .

. . . because it appears to be done. (Hat tip: SG Standard.) ESPN reports that Texas has announced its intention to remain in the Big 12, and school sources at Texas A&M are offering a similar indication. Gene Stallings certainly has backed off of his hardline stance in favor of the Aggies moving to the SEC. Frankly, I don't get it. I don't see how the Big 12 can negotiate a better television deal after losing the marquee program in the Big 12 North, the Denver media market, and the right to host a conference championship game. If, however, that is what has happened---and it certainly appears that it has---we all owe Dan Beebe a huge apology. After getting so psyched up over the ostensibly impending arrival of Texas A&M, I am disappointed at the loss of the opportunity to see the Bulldogs play a conference road game at what is (in my humble opinion) the most well-named college stadium in the country. At the end of the day, though, the twelve-team SEC has been an enormous success, and the prospect of twelve teams in the Big Ten and the Pac-10 does not threaten the long-term viability of the league. With neither the Big Ten nor the Pac-10 gaining a toehold in the Lone Star State, the SEC is not imperiled by failing to make such inroads. In the end, it looks like initial projections were correct, and we all got caught up in the excitement of what turned out to be much ado about not very much. Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted. Go 'Dawgs!

If the SEC Gets Texas A&M, Should Mike Slive Go After Houston, Too?

It wouldn't be my preference, but blackertai makes his case for the Cougars. Go 'Dawgs!

Does Moving to the SEC Make Sense for Texas A&M?

According to at least one Aggie fan, it does. Here is the very sensible short course in why the best move for Texas A&M would be to head east rather than west. It's a good read. Go 'Dawgs!

Add Texas A&M to West and Memphis to East . . . No, Really!

I've got ten million and one reasons why we should do it. 1. It would aggravate the crap out of the Tennessee fans. 2-10,000,001. Dollars FedEx would pay us to do it. Go 'Dawgs!
