Are They Heading for the SEC?

Hello, college football and college basketball fans!

Conference realignment was put in motion last year when Nebraska was invited to the Big Ten and Colorado and Utah was invited to the Pac-12.

There was talk of a movement to the "superconference" era with some of the most powerful conferences expanding to 16 members each.

However, when Texas and the rest of the Big 12 decided to stay rather than join the Pac-12 (would have been Pac-16), the "superconference" era was placed on hold.

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz regarding a proposed move of Texas A&M to the SEC which would have put the SEC at 13 members with at least one more and possibly more on the way.

Then the SEC seemingly put the brakes on the invite of Texas A&M. But Texas A&M is still discussing leaving the Big 12. Is Texas A&M to the SEC a foregone conclusion and if so, will we finally see the superconference era?

This proposal is part what I want to see happen and part what I think has a realistic chance of happening.
