'After receiving unanimous written assurance from the Big 12 on September 2 that the Southeastern Conference was free to accept Texas A&M to join as a new member, the presidents and chancellors of the SEC met last night with the intention of accepting the application of Texas A&M to be the newest member of the SEC. We were notified yesterday afternoon that at least one Big 12 institution had withdrawn its previous consent and was considering legal action. The SEC has stated that to consider an institution for membership, there must be no contractual hindrances to its departure. The SEC voted unanimously to accept Texas A&M University as a member upon receiving acceptable reconfirmation that the Big 12 and its members have reaffirmed the letter dated September 2, 2011.' - Dr. Bernie Machen, chair of Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors

"At the end of the day," said Muschamp, the defensive coordinator under Mack Brown at Texas from 2008 until his hiring in Gainesville last December, "in the state of Texas, there are kids ... who are going to be Longhorns.
"There are kids who are going to be Sooners. And then Texas A&M's going to sign their share of players."

Texas A&M's move to the SEC ultimately would happen if Oklahoma stays put in the Big 12, but until that occurs eight of the remaining nine Big 12 schools will not waive their right to pursue litigation against the SEC and A&M, a source with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com.
Yes, Aggie, liberal Austin and the Big 12-3 is all about socialism and keeping you down. [ESPN Big 12 Blog]
"We are being held hostage right now," Loftin said of being forced to stay in the Big 12. "Essentially, we're being told that you must stay here against your will and we think that really flies in the face of what makes us Americans for example and makes us free people."
Or it might be something more like this.
