According to Orangebloods, it seems that Texas A&M has voted to join the SEC. There's already been enough talk about why they would do that and whether it is a smart move. If this news is true, the two questions that come to me right away is who will replace them in this Pac 16 conference and what will happen to the UT/ATM rivalry?
....sources say UT officials have vowed that if A&M turns down its invitation to the Pac-10, breaks away from UT and goes to the SEC, Texas won't schedule the Aggies in anything anytime soon.
It also appears that Rick Perry won't be pushing for the two schools to remain in the same conference. I would hate to see UT not try to schedule ATM every year. As one sided as the rivalry has been, this is has been a huge game in the state of Texas. There's no reason we should end it. It does seem that ATM may finally get its wish of getting itself out of UT's shadow. Thoughts?
