This Week In Schadenfreude: Aggies Add Nada

So, one of the ostensible reasons for Texas A&M and Missouri bolting from the Big 12 for the lush green pastures of the SEC was the opportunity to make more money. However, that may not end up being the case, at least in terms of the upcoming restructuring of the league's CBS deal:

Here's a snippet from the article:

CBS still will carry the same number of football games each season as part of its package, and network executives are arguing that schools such as Alabama, Florida and LSU-not Missouri and Texas A&M-drive the value of the conference. Without additional inventory, CBS's stance has been that it shouldn't pay more solely because the conference added two new schools.

It could be that this is simply posturing, a negotiating tactic intended to get the network the best deal possible.

Or maybe the Aggies simply aren't worth as much as they thought they were. Maybe we should all just point and laugh.
