the SEC...

What the hell are they waiting on?  With the Big 12 3 teams short of 12 and the SEC at an odd 13.  I think most of us agree that at this point the Big East is just a carcass waiting for the buzzards to come pick the pieces they want.

The Big 12 is obviously working through their issues right now, but what is taking the SEC so long to make a move?  Every team in the ACC voted to raise the opt out price and Mizzou appears to now be continent with the Big 12.  Time is of the essence here.  The Big East is in limbo and I don't expect it to exist as a football conference after this season.  If the SEC has any interest in WVU or Louisville they should be acting now.  Am I wrong in assuming that those are their best options at this point?

Even if they believe Big 12 talks might fall apart and Mizzou might be back on the table, that also leaves the Big 12 the opportunity to raid the BE first.  I wouldn't expect Mizzou to give the SEC an official "no" until they know which teams will fill the remaining Big 12 spots.  Meanwhile both Louisville and WVU have been mentioned as potential Big 12 targets. 

Granted the SEC doesn't NEED 14 teams, but it seems like they're making a mistake by not acting first.

 

PS - I'd give my left nut to get Louisville in the SEC
