The Texas A&M Aggies’ head honcho, athletic director Ross Bjork, experienced an about face over the weekend in his reaction to the Texas Longhorns potentially joining the SEC.

“The bottom line of where things stand as we sit here today, throughout the weekend, going into next week is we’re ready,” Bjork said, according to the Dallas Morning News. “We’re ready for whatever comes.”

Got to love the sudden change of heart.
