Everything I hate about Texas summed up in a few words.
I need to see my ‘Horns play the Aggies while I am digesting copious amounts of dead bird. Why must they mess everything up?
I just want to relive this day forever.
Saw ‘Em Off! So excited to be a Fightin’ Texas Aggie!!! Gig ‘em! :D
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Southeastern Conference says Texas A&M is set to join the league next year.
The SEC announced Sunday that the move will be effective next July, and says Texas A&M will participate in all sports during the 2012-13 academic year. That gives the SEC 13 members and its first addition since South Carolina and Arkansas in 1992.
The Aggies’ defection from the Big 12 had been held up with threatened legal action from Baylor and other schools. The statement released by the SEC did not mention that situation, and spokesman Charles Bloom did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
A source told ESPN’s Joe Schad that Texas A&M’s negotiation of an exit fee with the Big 12 “will now begin in earnest.”
The SEC’s announcement said that Texas A&M beginning play in the conference next year is “unconditional,” sources told Schad.
If any institution, such as Baylor, files litigation it would be dealt with at that time.
Baylor’s decision not to waive its right to sue the SEC or Texas A&M was based in large part, however, on a desire to get the remaining nine schools to commit, which Big 12 leadership says is a goal they have recently moved closer toward.
SEC presidents and chancellors voted in favor of adding the Aggies on Sept. 6.
Texas A&M Officially welcomed into the SEC…..
Will be looking forward to adding College Station, TX in my SEC road trips rotation. Welcome to the best conference in the land, Aggies!
What can I say??? I’ve got a thing for soccer players (:
