Is the Texas vs Vanderbilt game going to spark a blood feud? Are the LSU fans pissed off that they have to wait until next year to get in on this action? Have you printed off a scoreboard for this "challenge"?.
The simple explanation is that the SEC wants to improve it's non-con basketball scheduling (Slive even talked about it recently, I'm sure you missed it because it was basketball related). The ACC-BIG already have a "challenge" so it's pretty much the Big 12 left sitting at the bar for last call.
And of course, the Big 12 wants to attach itself to the SEC as often as it can so we'll always put out.
