.......The Aggies will be representing the state of Texas on the biggest stage in college athletics. Good Luck Aggies.
Not only will Texas A&M be competing in a high caliber athletic conference for which one can argue whether that should be the highest aspiration of a college. But for certain, A&M will be significantly upgrading the scholastic image of the SEC. If athletics is their goal, then A&M has chosen correctly. I hope that A&M's new association with the athletic driven SEC will not cause the perception that it is yet another football school instead being among the very best public institutions in the nation.
As a TCU supporter, I am grateful that A&M's departure provided a gateway and consequently helped paved the way for the Horned Frogs to move into a top tier conference, Big XII. For TCU, it will be the best of both worlds, academically and athletically.
Good luck to Texas A&M and to TCU!

In the SEC the Aggies get a very stable conference, more national exposure, more money and a great slate of home games every year. I suppose there are worse things.
