By now the news is pretty certain the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners are working out a deal to leave the Big 12.  They both intend to jump to the SEC.

I am sorry to see the Big 12 take such a hit, and wonder what the future will hold for that conference.

Will Baylor and Oklahoma State follow out the door?  Both have strong basketball and football programs.  

There is buzz that Kansas and possibly Iowa State are looking at joining the Big 10. 

The Big 12 may ultimately vanish in the way the old Southwest Conference did.

I'm afraid the Big 12 will soon be history.  It will not be remembered fondly like the old Big 8 or Southwest Conference.  Unfortunately, wherever Texas goes trouble follows.  Ask Nebraska, Missouri, Colorado, and Texas A&M, plus most of their old Southwest Conference teammates.  At least in the SEC Texas will seat on the back bench for quit some time!

Agreed. University of Texas will not sink the SEC, or have much traction with their usual behaviors. The bully on the block will be in the company of more than enough established, legacy programs to overwhelm that. It will be a different situation where their need of the conference (SEC) is much greater than the conference has need of them. 
 

It will be interesting to see if or how the Big 12 survives.
