Aggieyell.com a site that covers Texas A&M is reporting that the Aggies are going to jump to the SEC, but are unable to announce the move until August 22nd. If it’s true I am not surprised. If this particular story is false, then you are going to hear everyone in the lamestream media start bashing twitter, and blog sites like crazy. Sure, as if ESPN does a great job of reporting the truth all of the time. But all we are dealing with people are rumors.
Apparently high ranking SEC officials have told a reputable news organization that the move is “way premature”
According to Chip Brown at Orangebloods.com the SEC plans to have a meeting;
Two sources said the SEC presidents are being gathered Saturday in an emergency meeting to address the possible addition of Texas A&M.
The sources said the Aggies’ nine-member regents board is leaning toward leaving the Big 12 and are being fueled by a lack of confidence in the current configuration of the league – i.e. the relationship between Texas and ESPN (the Longhorn Network) and how it could negatively impact the rest of the members.
There’s growing concern in the Big 12 that A&M is already well down the road toward joining the SEC.

So from the looks of it there are a lot of moving parts and some sources are saying one thing, while other sources are saying another. You can take from it what you please, because at this point, until the SEC announces that Texas A&M will be joining the SEC, nothing matters. Reports can be true or false, and in the end we will go about our day. So go ahead and enjoy that NFL game tonight that doesn’t count.
The biggest news out of the SEC is not this, but Knile Davis’ apparent knee injury. Texas A&M is actually tomorrow’s news, this Davis injury affects today and could mean a lot for the SEC West.
