  • Gene Stallings is on the TAMU Board of Regents & has been the leading voice advocating a move into the SEC West.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/4...ream-come-true

    Stallings was among the TAMU players who survived Bear Bryant's grueling Junction Boys offseason conditioning program in 1954 & is a former Alabama & TAMU HC who won the previous Crimson Tide national championship in 1992 so he has a solid SEC orientation. As the article indicates LSU played Texas A&M almost annually for ~50 yrs.

    Geographically it would make for cheaper away game travel & regional recruiting expenses for TAMU than a move to the Pac 10 where the Aggies would have to travel over 1,000 mi. round trip for a game at Seattle, the Oregon schools or Spokane & Washington St.

    All eyes are on the Texas schools now & everything is pending.

      Isn't the governor of Texas an Aggie alumnus? I hear he's pushing hard for TAMU to stick with Texas, which would mean going to the Pac 10. I say we assassinate him...

      ...with letters stongly encouraging him to support A&M joining the SEC.

      My biggest question is whether they'll just add a twofer, or go after 4 and make it a 16 school conference. If they do add 4, I'd very much be interested in Mizzou or Kansas, assuming they don't go to the Big 10. Mizzou, geographically, fits just fine as the state border Arkansas, Kentucky, and I believe a small point of Tennessee. KU is basically for basketball I guess, but seeing as how they're being left out in the cold, it's really showing the sports priorities in sports and proving that football is the #1 cash cow. Schools with dominant basketball traditions and meh football programs aren't a priority.

      Nevertheless, TAMU and FSU should be the top realistic targets for the SEC. I'll be disappointed with anything less (and I'm preparing myself for the letdown).

        I think yes on TAMU & no on Fla. St. TAMU & Texas want to stay rivals & say they're joined at the hip but really want to go 2 different ways, TAMU to the SEC & Texas to the Pac 10 & the West Coast the major mkt. megabucks.

        They could end up staying put in the new Big 11, or 12 if they poach TCU from the Mtn. West. Everything depends on what Oklahoma does, if they stay or go to the Pac 10 I think the Texas will follow -- the Texas-Oklahoma rivalry is worth more gazillions to Texas in terms of TV revenue than the annual Thanksgiving game with traditional rival TAMU.

          They aren't joined at the hip. They just want to make sure that whichever way they go, they continue playing every year. They don't need to be in the same conference to do that.

            If Oklahoma wants a partner then they would have one in Texas A&M if they join as well.

            • this is me being super bored (and a bitter auburn fan) about the 2009 iron bowl.



              on the last drive for alabama, at 1:01 it was 3rd and 3. bama does some crossing routes and look at the terrible PI on #15 going from left to right.

              then at 1:10 look at the tight end just run right at the linebacker and start to block him almost. that was also 3rd and 5.

              i know i know, this is over but i thought id educate y'all on this. and i cant wait for the season to start so auburn can go undefeated and win the NC :)


              RIP, Sean Taylor.

                  • SEC refs were an abomination last year. Hopefully with a more pedestrian looking league going into next season, calls will be more fair and not go towards the heavy weights like 'Bama and Florida.

                              except for the fact that Saban is smiling.
