Most consider it a formality that A&M will seek an invitation to join the Southeastern Conference. This is not exactly new news.

Assuming this takes place, please answer the following questions:

  1. Are you for or against Texas A&M joining the SEC?
  2. Should the SEC immediately seek a 14th conference member to balance out the schedules?
  3. Assuming the SEC eventually goes to 14, who should team #14 be and why?
  4. Who moves to the East?
  5. Should the SEC stop at 13 / 14 or move to 16?
  6. Assuming we are moving to 16-team superconferences, what other two teams should the SEC approach?
  7. How will the SEC be organized? 2 divisions, 4 divisions? Who is where?
  8. Which 4 of the big conferences survive?
  9. What kind of impact will this have on Vanderbilt?
