Let’s Talk About It: Kansas and the SEC

On Wednesday night, college football realignment YouTuber Greg Fluguar’s show was called ‘Kansas Receiving Another Look.’

In short, Fluguar said KU has a decent shot with the SEC if it expands to 20 teams.

I’ve Heard some similar chatter myself. But like he said, nothing is certain and nothing is #imminent.

  • Who is Greg Fluguar? Fluguar says he is a nobody who knows a somebody. The Los Angeles Times profiled him as the first person to call USC’s move to the B1G.

    • He’s been talking realignment and the future of college football on YouTube ever since.

  • What did he say? He said, ‘Kansas is very much in the game’ if the SEC expands to 20 teams. He also said the value of basketball is expected to increase over time.

    • Fluguar added that some schools familiar with KU want the Jayhawks in the conference once realignment time comes.

    • But there’s a lot more to it, which Fluguar explains over the two-hour show.

    • I saw KU fans sharing the news on Twitter like this is some kind of foregone conclusion, which isn’t what Fluguar was saying.

I believe the idea is legitimate — but a lot of things have to shake out right. So, yes, it’s possible. But it’s nothing more than possible right now.

And KU fans need to SHOW UP for football.

I’ll get into the details of what I’m Hearing about all of this below. For now, it’ll be VIP only. I will share these thoughts more broadly when the time is right.
