More Aggie/Longhorn Angst

Mike Slive should just go ahead and pull the trigger.  After all, with rumors swirling of a potential Texas A&M move to the SEC we’re forced to cover the Aggies as though they are already the league’s 13th member.

As you know by now, Texas’ new partnership with ESPN — the Longhorn Network — has threatened to disturb the Big 12′s tenuous peace.  A&M and other league schools are worried about Texas using the network as a recruiting tool.  They’re also worried about UT putting league games on the network.

A&M officials stoked the flames of discontent yesterday during Big 12 Media Days in Dallas.  According to Jason King of Yahoo! Sports, Texas A&M would not allow Aggie football coach Mike Sherman to speak on camera with reporters from the Longhorn Network.

When asked to talk about his rival’s new toy, Sherman said: “I’m not talking about it.  I’m not talking about it.  I have enough on my plate getting my team ready to play.”

Yep.  That sounds like one big happy family.

The big 12-2 is one big unhappy family. Everyone shows up at the family reunion packing heat.

Yep, Mr SEC,

I think it is not "how" but "when" TAMU is coming over to SEC. The voices is getting louder and louder from fans, students and even donors for Texas A&M to SECede from Big XII-2 . Time to update that taskbar,

When asked by other media about his thoughts on the LHN, Mike Sherman's exact quote was:

"I don't give a rat's ass what those people in Austin do."

Greatness.....

If there is a college football god (you listening bear?) A&M to the SEC will happen sooner rather than later.

Thats just called being polite in Texas. Everyone packing heat so that no one person controls the situation. Texas (t.u.) just thinks because it has the biggest gun it is better than everyone else, too bad they always forget TAMU has a cannon.

Mike...

We've been banging that drum for two years now and we still believe it will happen. But we'll see how quickly it happens.

A&M would be a good fit for the SEC. And the SEC would be good for A&M.

Thanks for reading,
John
