California or Bust! Conference Realignment Getting Closer. OR: The Okies are Coming part 2

We are getting closer on Conference Realignment.  SEC Presidents are voting today, based on several reports on twitter from various sports writers.  If A&M has enough votes (and I assume they will), It is expected there will be a formal announcement on Wednesday of A&M joining the SEC. 

Next up will be Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. I've heard that OU and OSU will announce the day after A&M, which would be Thursday.  However, OSU plays Arizona at T. Boone Pickens.   That would be good cover to have PAC president Larry Scott in Oklahoma.  I would expect OU and OSU would announce on Friday, while Mr. Scott is in the state.

The best article out so far on updating the current situation is from Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples and you can read it all here.  

There are several big questions on the table right now, that we simply don't have answers to like:

1) Who will be #14 for the SEC?

2) Will the PAC go to 16 and who will be #15 & #16?

3) Will the PAC add Kansas and Missouri, going to 16, and still leave 2 tables open for Texas and Texas Tech and go to 18 in the future?

So far, it seems that Texas is holding strong and fast to the idea that they can make the Big 12 work, and keep their precious.  Their PRECIOUS!!!  Below is a recent picture of UT Athletic Director Deloss Dodds:

Also here is a blog opinion piece on why UT might be stalling.  Get this....it's about making UT wanting a better deal for UT.....shocking conclusion I know! It did have some good points.
