Martin talks SEC expansion, Oklahoma and Texas

South Carolina Gamecocks men’s basketball coach Frank Martin is a self-described football guy. Adding Oklahoma and Texas from the Big 12, in his mind, would be a big win for the SEC, regardless of sport.

Bob Stoops writes op-ed praising Oklahoma's move to the SEC

We haven't heard much from Bob Stoops in the four years -- wow, it's really been that long -- since he walked away from Oklahoma.

Texas and Oklahoma leaving the Big 12 for the SEC could have a massive ripple effect on the college football recruiting landscape beyond the two schools themselves.

SEC could see massive revenue increase with Texas, Oklahoma

The SEC is about to expand with the additions of Texas and Oklahoma. With those two new institutions will come a massive financial boost for the already wealthy conference. The SEC already generates a mammoth amount of revenue each year, but that will only grow exponentially once the Longhorns and Sooners are in the league. USA Today reviewed the numbers and believes that the SEC could exceed one billion dollars in revenue in the first fiscal year with Texas and Oklahoma in the conference.
