A&M Officially Withdraws From Big 12

How’s that for timing?  We just finishing posting some links to stories speculating about when Texas A&M might pull out from the Big 12 and now they’ve already gone and done it.

A&M president R. Bowen Loftin sent a letter to commissioner Dan Beebe today stating:

“After much thought and consideration, and pursuant to the action of the (Texas A&M University System) Board of Regents authorizing me to take action related to Texas A&M University’s athletic conference alignment, I have determined it is in the best interest of Texas A&M to make application to join another athletic conference.

We appreciate the Big 12′s willingness to engage in a dialogue to end our relationship through a mutually agreeable settlement.  We, too, desire that this process be as amicable and prompt as possible and result in a resolution of all outstanding issues, including mutual waivers by Texas A&M and the conference on behalf of all the remaining members.”

If the Big 12 accepts A&M’s withdrawal and if the two parties can agree on proper settlements, the Aggies will officially leave the league on June 30th of next year.

For SEC fans, that means that unless Mike Slive announces the surprise addition of a 14th school (or 15th or 16th), their league will likely feature 13 teams next football season.
