    BREAKING: Texas and Oklahoma set to leave the Big 12, latest on potential move to SEC

    With Texas and Oklahoma set to leave the Big 12, is this the beginning of the end for the Big 12 Conference?
    On Friday's emergency edition of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes return with the latest on Texas and Oklahoma's decision to look for other conference options as the two schools intend to inform the Big 12 officials of the decision to not renew the league's grant of rights, which expires in 2025. The Flagship delivers the latest from Horns247 sources who confirmed that the Sooners and Longhorns plan to tell the Big 12 their intentions to leave the league on Monday, which will open the door for the SEC to officially express interest in adding the two historic programs to the Southeastern Conference.
    Chip and Taylor discuss all of the possibilities that Texas and Oklahoma could face, including if there are talks of the two schools joining any other league outside of the SEC or possibly looking at the independent route, the timeline of when the departure could occur, what, if any, forces could step in and halt this conference expansion from a state level and much, much more.
    With Texas and Oklahoma's intended departure potentially reshaping the landscape of college sports, Texas and all college football fans won't want to miss this emergency episode of The Flagship Podcast!

The pulse of the Longhorns

Mike and Nick relationships with potential future Longhorns provides a unique perspective. They have done a great job keeping us up to date with new coaching staff. Keep up the great work those of us living outside of Texas.
