What if UT didn't start the LHN? What if aTm didn't leave? What if we had offers on the table from 2 conferences? Now I'm not trying to start rumors or anything, but this other person that talked to me earlier did. So, heard some things about the SEC calling TCU last week just to ask some questions, don't really know, just supposedly called. Then got some email today that was written by some UT person. Now just roll with this, and it's probably not true, but who would we be not to share the information with our readers. Started off about how UT fans are pissed about the invite, but it is a good move for the conference. You see, UT had always had DFW and TCU was always just a backup plan and no other big conferences had any interest. But with the last decade of success, TCU has opened those doors up and the SEC might try to get into DFW. This has been pushed by a couple of team in the west (supposedly Arkansas and LSU) and there were rumors of a couple of SEC officials in Fort Worth a couple of weeks ago meeting with some upper TCU management. This would be a huge recruiting boost for the teams in the West division as it would cut into one of the most fertile recruiting grounds in the nation and boost their already huge presence in East Texas. Everyone is expecting the acceptance, so why hasn't it been accepted? Yeah, I know it takes some time, but really just think what if? , what if there was interest being thrown at us from the SEC? What if the invitation was a panic move by the Big 12? Do I sound like an SMU fan yet? These are some big what ifs, but seriously, What If?
