Great piece from Frank the Tank taking on and destroying the ongoing myth perpetuated by less knowledgeable types, like Clay Travis and the editors of other SBNation blogs, that the Aggies will inevitably wind up in the SEC.
"When the University of Texas signed its network deal with ESPN, the drumbeats from people that aren’t looking at the big picture started: 'Well, this means Texas A&M is heading to the SEC sooner rather than later.' It’s a stance that’s become reflexive among many widely read pundits. Unfortunately, that stance is absolutely and positively dead wrong. If there’s one overarching takeaway that you should get from this blog post, it’s that what Texas A&M wants to do means jack. . . . . There’s a widely misguided belief in the blog and message board world that since the SEC reportedly invited Texas A&M and Oklahoma over this past summer, that means there’s an 'open invite' for the Aggies and Sooners. Nothing could be further from the truth."
