The times are a changing in the SEC, as Texas and Oklahoma will now be joining the SEC for the 2024 season. The two schools reached a settlement with the Big 12 on Thursday, paving the way for the long-time rivals to join the league a year earlier than initially anticipated.

    Good article Connor! Both Texas and Oklahoma are stepping up in competition for sure and may struggle a little the first couple of years until they have SEC players across their rosters. I am excited about the future rivalries they will develop starting in 2024. Welcome to the best conference in College Football. Go Dawgs!

    The whole thing stinks. Schools coming into the SEC that are not remotely in the Southeast degrades the league. Money always triumphs over tradition.

    My vote for the (3) permanent opponents for the Dawgs would be Florida (home-and-home), Tennessee, and Auburn.

    I am VERY ready for SEC divisions to vanish...we need more parity and more varying matchups....and add that 9th SEC game. The fact that we haven't ever played Texas A&M in College Station is just ludicrous. And that's just one example.

    Tradition is being destroyed in every major conference. I'm not a fan of all this conference restructuring just to make a dollar. Not a fan of the 12 game playoffs either. After a schedule of 9 conference games in the SEC teams will be beat up and the SEC champion may not be physically capable of competing for a national championship like a Big Ten team who had a powder puff schedule.

    These kids are supposed to be students first and athletes second. A fact that everybody seems to overlook.

    Heather Dinich is the overly-made-up lady from The Hunger Games who goes around to each sector for the selection of each competitor. Really, though, her job is to hype the whole thing to make the people cheer for the destruction of what is good. Say what you want, but she works her tail off to make the CFB world believe that expanded conferences and a bigger playoff are what's best for the sport . . . while ESPN and all the suits in conference headquarters prepare to swim in pools of money ala Scrooge McDuck.

    We are in the final, good ole days of CFB. Remember them.

    In the same way that some of those independent baseball teams around the country are the remnants of baseball as it should be, maybe there are some semi-pro or JC football teams out there that will carry the same tradition for football.
