Five Reasons Why Texas A&M Needs to Elope to the SEC

Hey, Texas A&M and the Southeastern Conference: Get a room already! Then get married or whatever because this idle flirtation, which has been going on for years, is getting tired.

For the past few weeks, a potential move by A&M to the SEC has become a hot topic, especially after the A&M Board of Regents met behind the scenes on July 21. Though unconfirmed, many are speculating that Aggieland is majorly bummed that the University of Texas and ESPN have partnered to create the Longhorn Network, which is scheduled to begin broadcasting on August 26. (Here are some of its lame shows.)

The issue also came up during Big 12 media days, which took place July 25 and 26 in Dallas. Then, yesterday, Texas Governor Rick Perry added the proverbial fuel when he told the Dallas Morning News that "conversations are being had" over at A&M about abandoning the Big 12 ship.

Enough! Just get it over with!

Here are five reasons why A&M needs to make this transparent love affair with the SEC a public dealio.

5. The More Yell Leaders and 12th Man in the Public Consciousness, The Better
How on Earth can Auburn's War Eagle and Georgia's "Between the Hedges" compete with the "whoop" hand signal, "gig 'em" and the high school bench warmer that wears number 12 12th Man? Short answer: Nobody, uh, can.

4. A Team From Texas Needs to Be in the Best College Football Conference

Football in Texas hasn't been the same since the Southwest Conference called it quits in 1996. That's why a squad from the Lone Star State needs to post up in a division that has won the past five BCS National Championships, even if the team is chronically mediocre.

I wonder if we have a Bama network, if Auburn will leave.  Sounds great to me!

A&M is a cult of a school and is always claiming to be the best. Maybe a change to the hardest football conference they will finally realize how far their heads were stuck up their behinds. Wreck'em Tech

Why is everyone on A&M's nuts? Seems Like a kid hating another kid because he has a genesis when all you have is a super nintendo.

A&M struck a nerve with this one. The whining from the Longhorn fanbase can only mean one thing: Texas is terrified of A&M in the SEC. Else, why all the bashing?

Didn't A&M beat Tech the past two years?  And then they switched couple of times after Tech won a few years in a row while A&M was rebuilding with a new coach.  Tech fans must all be about 10 years old max.

If anything, A&M is the team that gets bullied by everyone else. Definitely NOT Tech. Tech bullies Baylor and A&M. Their record against those 2 schools combined is like 26-5 since the conference began. What a joke this post is.

Who bullies Texas Tech? Whoever wrote this might be borderline retarded.

What the heck? There is not ONE team outside of Texas that has had a great record vs Texas Tech in the big 12.... A&M has a losing record against them, as does nebraska and ok state. Baylor has lost to Tech 16 straight years. This guy is an idiot.

Who Bully's Texas Tech? A&M loses to Tech 3 out of every 4 years, and OU only beats them once every 2 years. Not to mention, Tech has the 4th longest winning season streak in the country. 17 straight winning seasons. Seriously, what are you smoking?
