That is hardly an original thought! Now give us the 10 year track record on
vaccine.

Your "original" thought is intentionally deceptive ("virus is either natural or accidental lab leak") to cover either reality and you fail to address the most fundamental aspect.

Personal Choice! Up to each person to take the vaccine or not

You left out the real reason, they are in the pockets of the pharmaceutical companies and having everybody take it shows compliance.

Something orderly combing them and us likely makes the most sense.....
Unless the pac 12 comes calling, they’ve got 8 and we’ve got 11…… convince Boise to jump in and you've got an even 20.

Split that into 2 ten-team divisions, with 9 conf games a season and the winners playing each other...... you've essentially got a guaranteed 12-team playoff participant from that. You could unite or split the 2 groups as much as you'd like..... they can be 100% all-in, or they can essentially be 2 different conferences that just have an alliance of sorts. Either way, that group is immediately #4 behind the sec, b1g, and acc...... with the pac-12 having the potential to run a team or two ahead of us, but overall a lessor product...... and truth be told, if you wanted to take the top 5-6 from that new United conf and put them against the top 5-6 from the acc, we'd probably win the majority of the games not involving Clemson.

The kicker is that the current b12’ers left on the island will some fear of their revenue going to squat to convince them that they can’t just stand pat and add replacement teams. That’ll require playoff $, bowl ties & $, and tv $ to all decrease meaningfully. We all expect that’ll be the case, but they’ve got to be smacked up side the head with real numbers for it to sink in…… and those on their short-list of adds need to be smart enough to pickup on it and steadfast enough to not succumb to nostalgia of “joining the big 12”.

SEC would not kick out its wealthiest athletic program
A&M has been either the wealthiest or 2nd wealthiest program in the country for the last several years.and by far the wealthiest in the SEC.

They also are the 3rd or 4th best SEC school (out of 14) in academics.
TAM doesn't want UT in their league, but they'll have to live with it.

More money in the P12. Its that simple. Doesnt take away the fact our...
top teams have outperformed them of late in football. Hell, it is all about to get blown up anyway. Will be mayhem in the streets, dogs and cats sleeping together, SEC will become Thanos. LOL.
B12 and P12 will try to regroup the best they can. So will the AAC. Either way, the Pirates will keep competing! A future hybrid AAC/MWC could be interesting as a 16 or 18 team league with west and East Divisions. AAC could take the best performers from the Sun Belt and CUSA and move forward.

Probably so, 76 million buyout would be bump in road only.
The SEC needs 11 votes
The only certain dissenter would be A&M
Other possibles would be Arkansas, Missouri, and maybe LSU....who all benefit in recruiting Texas with SEC status that UT/OU dont have.

But I'd assume they get the votes

I see the ACC going after Kansas simply for their basketball and perhaps West Virginia for their football/basketball. Kansas's football team would give Wake and Duke some hope of not finishing last.

Looks like they had about
a 1.3% mortality rate. My wife is a nurse and has been saying this the whole time. It's a virus. Not much you can do about it but let it run its course. I'm not anti vax but it should be up to each person what they want to do, imo. Personally, I lived my life, got it, was sick as crap, and now moving on. If I had not had it, I would consider the vaccine. Everyone has a different situation. Either way, the situation will take care of itself, eventually.

What do the people want?
A supermajority of likely voters (66%) want the Black Lives Matter and antifa protests investigated, while a majority do not support Pelosi's inquiry into the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.

Just 49% support Pelosi's House Jan. 6 panel, and majorities of Blacks and Hispanics back an investigation into the protests that followed the murder of George Floyd by a police officer. The demonstrations sparked violence in multiple U.S. cities.

"Sixty-seven percent of whites, 64% of Black voters, 66% of Hispanics and 62% of other minorities think Congress should investigate the 2020 riots in U.S. cities," Rasmussen Reports wrote in the analysis of the poll. "Seventy-five percent of Republicans, 60% of Democrats, and 63% of voters not affiliated with either major party say Congress should investigate last year's violent protests."

Also, according to the poll, majorities of likely voters back police and reject the narrative of systemic racism in law enforcement.
