Let me first caveat that Tuxedo Yoda is obviously not Adam Rittenberg or Stewart Mandel. Anything an amateur blogger posts must be taken with a grain of salt.
That said, he has been correct in making a few calls (of lesser magnitude) about Texas football, specifically, and Big 12 goings on, more generally, in the past. He generally knows his chit. I believe that he does indeed have a source (he has mentioned in the past about sources at Texas as well as well-placed Big 12 sources). What I also believe is possible is that schools are using amateur journos to manipulate the realignment process. No doubt his source gave him legit information; but this information could be designed to affect the negotiation process amongst conferences and candidate schools. As for his source's angle, well, who knows?
In any event, Tuxedo Yoda claims:
#1 When the 2014 college football season kicks off, UNC will be a member of the SEC.
#2 When the 2014 college football season kicks off, Miami will be a member of the Big 12.
Has anyone else seen anything to corroborate either of these two claims? If true, UNC to the SEC would be something of a shocker at this point.
