It looks like Texas A&M University is close to an agreement to bolt the Big 12 to enter the SEC. I don’t blame A&M for wanting to make the change. They need to blaze their own trail and to get out of the shadow of the Texas Longhorns. I think the Aggies have a great program, and the SEC will only elevate their prospects. The weekly competition will be more difficult than anything they’ve ever faced, but it will be a boon for the program.
This news about A&M reminds me of the last time the Aggies travelled to Baton Rouge to play LSU. Their buses had almost reached the stadium when they passed a sign that read “LSU Left.” Disappointed, the Aggies turned the buses around and drove back to College Station.
Next time, we’ll be sure to put out signs with pictures on them!
Whoop! Geaux, Tigers!
