There's an official 'transition timeline' the SEC developed for the addition of Texas and Oklahoma, a copy of which was obtained through a FOIA request. The first phase of that timeline is approaching and is fairly clear: 'Finalize future scheduling at SEC spring meetings.' That would be in two weeks. Of course, when you get athletic directors and presidents from 14 schools — the new guys aren't listed as attending — it may be hard to arrive at a consensus on all these issues. But the conference has been working at it for a while, looking at around 30 different scheduling models before whittling it down, so it is possible that the full plan for 2025 and beyond is adopted at the meetings in Destin, Fla.
