I have bad news for you Bucknuts.
Multiple sources are saying the SEC faction has the regent votes to get TAMU into the SEC next week. The biggest reason is TAMU donors/alumni/boosters/etc have been adamant and calling into the 12 man foundation and Bill Byrne to let them know just how they feel. OU took Texas' **** because they need Texas but TAMU doesn't. This will change the dynamic in Texas forever. The legislature cannot stop this once it happens I think. With TAMU going to the SEC, there needs to be another team added. Now VT seems to be number one. Ive even heard WVU mentioned if VT doesnt want in. Reason the other teams arent being looked at is the sentiment that if they are going to divide up the pie, they want the team coming in to help give a bigger slice. All those teams are in places where the SEC presense is heavy and therefore are not being looked at but who knows. Someone has to match TAMU's entrance. If TAMU follows through, I will be there in 2011.

So is this realignment happening for the 2011 season? That seems like it would be a scheduling nightmare if they did it this year.

Pac 10 commish is visiting TAMU along with a couple other schools today to make a last ditch effort to bring them in.
06-13-2010, 08:11 PM
Looks like i'm going to hate college football for a few years. well, at least despise the ppl who made these decisions. I'm hatin' right now...
06-13-2010, 08:57 PM
Youre a sooner. How you dont already have a strong sense of self loathing is beyond me. Texas apparently is listening to the Big 12 commish's offer to keep all the guys together but...cmon. I think its too little too late.

Anyways, the reason you wont is because youve basically openly accepted your place as UT's little brother in arms. Your AD said it himself, "We will go wherever Texas goes." Not, "We will do what we think is best for us."
06-13-2010, 10:39 PM
And, in defense of the OU player on the '08 squad, we didn't suck against Florida we actually played fairly well and made a game of it. It's just that our receivers couldn't catch/hold on to the ball because Sam was really throwing it pretty hard. But yeah i know the rest of the nation views us that way. It would have toughened us up if we went to the SEC, but now we will blow ass for the next decade with high scoring big play shenanigans no real fundamentals.

And the only way to beat divinity is if you are Satan. You went against Tim Tebow.

I got this off rivals. A&M is such a good fit for the SEC. Cannot wait.

I don't need your historical citations of conference brotherhood. I don't care that we let you have a couple of our coaches. And I don't want you posting SEC SEC SEC! on my facebook wall.
You think I'm starting this relationship off on the wrong foot?? False. I'm starting it off on the right foot. With more unimaginable hate than your feeble brain can calculate.
THIS is what I know to be TRUE, quantifiable, empirical, irrevocable FACT: NO ONE LOVES THE TEXAS AGGIES. In the history of the world, no man has ever loved the Aggies that loves another school. "No man can serve two masters." -The Bible.
And we've worked for decades to position ourselves like that and maintain that position.
You don't respect me or my brothers. You see me as an opportunity, not a challenge. You don't see majestic maroon, you see greed green. You think because you brought over brownies as a house warming gift, that you can bang my wife? And now you think I'm just gonna let you in MY F*CKING state and bang my recruits too?? Well, F*ck you.
I don't want to callabo hate for the sips with you, bc you don't hate the sips like I do. I buried the greatest Aggie I've ever known this year on a t.u. pennant, because the guy hated the sips so fiercely. Blind hatred, gentlemen. A man who well into his 80s couldn't look a horn in the eye because he knew they were evil and untrustworthy. Hell, you probably own something in your house that is some shade of orange? Ha! No, no, you don't hate sips like I do.
Some Razorback **** wrinkle had the audacity to proclaim yesterday that after the hate on the field, he likes to drink and eat with the other SEC teams and party. Well, I don't want an invite. I'm not going to Baton Rouge to have a beignet and wax nostalgic about the time they ****ed with our bank roll. I'm not gonna draw some blurred parallel between Auburn and myself, because we're both products of a land grant Agriculture and Mechanical Colleges. They're not like me. They just work for me.
I'm not going to Gainesville to take a picture with Tim Tebow. And I'm not gonna spell words like "Tibeaux", because that **** doesn't make phonetical sense to me. I'm a Texas man, gaddammit. With tha sausage, and the fried eggs, and the T-bone steaks.
We, The Aggies are gonna grace whatever Conference WE decide will benefit US the most. We're 1 MILLION ****strong, rabid, bloodthirsty fans. With loaded wallets and vacation days abundant.
If the Aggies are playin on the moon, you bet your sweet ass, we're comin too. Even if the moon signed the #1 class in the nation and we're 100 pt. dogs. We're buyin the officially licensed bowl shirts, before the game, and Carter Beauford is gonna lead Yell Practice from the Aitken Basin.
I hate that you conned us into Fran. I hate that you got Championships out of Coach Bryant. I hate Schula Steak Houses. I hate croakies, I hate boat shoes, and I hate North Face. I'm gonna make a mess in all your bars, flex my ripped Aggie guns, and feed your women from the flow of my loins.
So you can cool it will the wolf in sheep's clothing act. You and everyone of your patronizing SEC pals.
We're not coming to your league to drink beer with you. We're coming to your league to kick your asses and then steal your beer and then pour it out and drink Lone Star.
I assure you, that letter was written from the depths of my bloody, redass Aggie heart.
I'm sick as **** of the Welcome to the SEC vibe. I don't want your ****ing sympathy. I don't want your beer or your a shot of your SoCo. I only want your hate. Tell me about how The Texas Aggies are never gonna see a win column again. And I'll tell you how I just sexed your daughter. Tell me about how gay the Corps of Cadets is and I'll show you men that stand guard and protect and serve the United States of America. Tell me about how how my football team sucks and I'll ask you how your basketball teams doing?
I've been waiting my whole gotdamn Aggie life to find someone that loves their school as much I do. And he sure as **** ain't in the Big 12. I hate you all. I don't think your lives are worth living. And I'm gonna give your women ALL my diseases because I think that **** is funny.
And hell yes, I'm gonna "SEC" chant. I'm hoarse as **** right now because I "S-E-C"d my heart out at the bar last night. I want every single ******* within earshot to know how much pure, psychotic disdain I have for them.
Show me pictures of your stadiums so I can know where we're gonna bury your players.

Not... so... fast. Looks like Beebe might've pulled one out of his a$s.

Pretty ironic how it might be A&M who ends up determining how this whole thing shakes out. If they are dead set on joining the SEC, Texas will have no choice but to bail on Beebe's promise of 14-17 million per year and take their chances with the Pac-16. Either way, they'll end up getting their Longhorn Network... but their older fanbase may never forgive them.
06-14-2010, 01:27 PM
"A&M apparently is going to stop being a good public university because of the teams they play in athletics. All the traditions they have there are stupid and only make people stupid. Its so sad people have to go there to get a good education and are "forced" to be stupid rednecks. If only they were progressive like us and realized that they should go to the Pac-10 to save their souls and become an academic institution instead of knuckle draggers like the old days. Everyone knows the sporting conferences you compete in have everything to do with your academics. There is hope for them though because some Aggies dont care as much about the history of the school and traditions there."
I personally want to see UT fall. They do not deserve the success they have.
06-14-2010, 01:42 PM
That right there is why I have never liked UT graduates. They think they are better than the rest of Texas when they are just liberal douchebags for the most part. They belong in the PAC-10.
A lot of the people from the Dallas/Fort Worth area are the same as well in my experience. Maybe that is where UT grads move after college.

Listening to the radio today on the drive home it sounds like they might try to work out the Big 12. ESPN is supposedly offering them a nice TV contract. I really do hope A&M tells them to **** off though and goes their own way.
So now the future of the Big 12 hinges on what the Aggies decide to do.
At least we haven't had to hear much about the Brett Favre BS yet. This is a nice substitute for the summer lull in football.
06-14-2010, 07:42 PM
Texas is staying. They scurred. Not a surprise. All eyes look to A&M now. Their regents will meet this week. Im hearing Texas' move may have been driven by an ever swaying OU. A&M and OU were tempted to leave them behind. Still might.

Loftins FB page is...brutal.
A&M forums are exploding/melting down. People are emailing the 12th Man Foundation (Alumni) and canceling their season tickets left and right. Things are pretty damn crazy there. This is a catastrophic mistake for TAMU.

Some highlights from the UT press conference.
"I wont be discussing the Pac-10 offer"
"Ten is a good number. It used to be very common."
"We dont have any new deals but we'll let the Big 12 handle that."
"ABC/ESPN been very helpful in all of this"
Apparently, there are no deals or anything. They just wanted public statements from everyone saying they are still in. Wow. Just wow.
They will play all 9 teams in the conference. Wow. They are so ****ing epicly pathetic.
"Our conference is strong. When you play OU, A&M, K-State has been strong...we could get 2 BCS bids."
Disgusted doesnt begin to describe how I feel about all this. I dont think I am going to transfer anywhere in state after seeing this ****. One university is full of horrible people, the other is spineless.
All said and done, I feel defeated.

Kevin Scarbinsky pretty much summed it up:
"Texas made it official in a statement released at the dinner hour that it was going to remain in the Big 12. In short order, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M got in line and pledged their allegiance as well. They didn’t seem to mind that Texas would not only retain its kingpin status, but strengthen it.
Texas A&M was sick to death of Texas. The Aggies were sick of losing to the Longhorns. They were sick of hearing about the Longhorns. They were sick of being just another school in the state of Texas and living under the thumb of THE University of Texas. It sounded like a serious and understandable case of little-brother syndrome, the kind this state hasn’t seen since Alabama owned Auburn in football from 1973-81. It was so serious that A&M strongly resisted the idea of doing what Texas was planning to do and going where Texas was planning to go when it came to choosing a conference home.
In the end, though, when it came time to stand up to Texas, much like on the field in their annual rivalry, the Aggies were all hat and no cattle.
Meanwhile, the SEC, which was content to add Texas A&M as a 13th member and then sit tight until it could find another good fit, hasn’t lost a thing. The league’s Plan A from the start was to stay at 12 members strong.
Good luck to Texas and its little brothers as they try to keep up."

TAMU regents were not allowed to vote. Decision rests with AD, Pres, and other top leaders. TAMU fans are PISSED. Administration officials are going on a PR campaign to try and fix some of it but its just not going well.
06-17-2010, 12:35 PM
I think the Big Ten came out with the best additions, but you gotta admit the Big 12..err..10..has to be the happiest. They still have a conference when nobody thought they'd survive the crumble.

Welcome Nebraska!!!! good to see a class act in my beloved conference. I was scared to almost have Mizzou in here..yuk!!! Finally, a big 10 east and a big 10 west and ONE conf champion (bucknuts/co champ). I hope this doesnt take away a OSU/PSU matchup.
06-17-2010, 09:31 PM
I agree completely about Nebraska I feel they are a great fit in the Big Ten.
I think they will continue the OSU/PSU it's been the game the past 4-5 years as Michigan has struggled to remain competitive.
