SEC Invites Texas A&M To Join

DALLAS (AP) The Southeastern Conference says it has accepted Texas A&M’s application to the league, but the move is being held up because a Big 12 school has threatened legal action if the Aggies leave.

The SEC says in a statement released Wednesday that it had already received “unanimous written assurance” from the Big 12 on Sept. 2 that it was free to accept Texas A&M.

The SEC says its presidents approved the invitation to Texas A&M, but Wednesday it received word from the Big 12 that one of its schools had withdrawn its previous consent and was considering legal action.

    Get the lawyers involved. Get the state senate involved. I say slow the pace so that the Big 12 can squeeze every possible penny out of A&M for the gutless departure. All these years I thought this school provided future business leaders, now they get out foxxed by AUSTIN (?) one of the “lazy liberal” cities, now that is funny!

      Maybe the NEW A&M will get some electric buses to take them to the road games. I am sure they can get some “grants” from Washington if they get the buses from Canada.
