I don't claim to be an expert on any of this, but, I have to believe that one, taking an additional Big12 team from here on out, won't be nearly as painful as the A&M snatching, and two, I think the SEC is so arrogant, they don't care. The SEC sees themselves as the top dog in all this who can pick and choose to their liking. They are likely right on that to be honest, except, and here comes my ACC colored glasses, I do feel there are teams in the ACC that the SEC has no chance of enticing. UNC being at the top of that list.

I actually hope that the SEC takes Missouri. I have nothing against the Big 12 and enjoy watching their top games in Hoops and Football, but their demise would be very beneficial to the ACC in terms of safety and stability.
Like many others, I do not like all of this, and wish the limit was 12 teams, with the Big 12 and Big East alive and healthy, but I am afraid those days are gone...
“I strongly feel that that’s not a basketball issue. I’m in charge of the basketball program as much the chancellor and the athletic director allow me to be. And it’s not a basketball issue.”
Williams said, he is aware of the classes that his players take. “I think it varies on a coach,” he said. “I mean, I’m pretty aware of what our guys are doing. And it’s not a basketball issue, guys. It is not a basketball issue. It’s a university issue.
