College Station, Texas – Earlier today, Texas A&M officially announced that they will be leaving the Big 12. This move comes after whining for months about the University of Texas and their new Longhorn Network. The Aggies feel that the Network provides many unfair advantages to the University of Texas, such as the ability to air Big 12 games and high school games. There is also the fear that Texas can use this in recruiting over the Aggies by being able to offer the chance to be seen playing on the Network. These concerns have continued to grow and have now resulted in Texas A&M completely disassociating themselves with the conference they have shared with the Longhorns. The cry baby threats actually began in July when a report that Texas A&M would be leaving to join the SEC surfaced. The SEC held a meeting of school presidents, however, that produced the decision that the conference was not ready to accept the Aggies at this time. The crying continued out of college station after that, however, and now the Aggies’ tears have turned to anger, much like the spoiled little child who got mad at their big brother during a football game, so they just took their football and left. Speculation does continue, however, that the Aggies may now end up being rewarded for their whining by getting what they wanted all along – an invitation to the SEC. We do want to point out that is just speculation right now, we don’t want to be mistaken for ESPN and report stories that aren’t true, much like the network did when they reported on a Saturday that Texas A&M would definitely be joining the SEC, but then on Sunday, the SEC agreed that it would not be happening. However, if the speculation is true, the Aggies stand to make a lot of money to dry their tears with. For now, we will wait and see what conference they land in, but for now it appears that Texas A&M has gotten what they wanted and have been rewarded for all of their hard work – and by hard work, we mean whining. Are you familiar with the situation where a mother takes her child into a store, the child whines and cries for a toy, and the mother just gets so tired of the crying, she just gets the child the toy they want so they will shut up? Texas A&M is now clearly very familiar with this scenario.
