‘All Gas, No Brakes’ has been the motto for Texas football since Steve Sarkisian took over in January. The same mentality has been applied for the Longhorns and their Red River rivals Oklahoma joining the SEC.

Just seven days after the story originally leaked, Texas and Oklahoma could be official members of the SEC by the end of the week. The process has moved along quicker than anyone could have imagined.

According to Jason Whitely of WFFA, the SEC presidents are going to vote on whether or not to allow Texas and Oklahoma into the conference Thursday. The vote is expected to be unanimous, with all 14, including Texas A&M, saying yes.

When everything was beginning to develop, reports came out of Missouri and Texas A&M wanting to vote no. In order for Texas and Oklahoma to be denied entrance, two other schools would have to join the former Big 12 rivals.

Now, the two have backed off and will be voting yes. Just like when they entered the SEC, the vote will be unanimous.

The next step is Texas and Oklahoma buying out the Big 12 to join the SEC as soon as possible. Money will not be an issue, with both schools have donors willing to cover the cost. Nearly $140 million is expected.

Longhorn Network could be of service, saving some important people from opening the checkbook. Either way, the vote happening this week all but confirms Texas and Oklahoma will be in the SEC by the 2022 football season.
