For Texas A&M: A Guide to the SEC

seclogo090111.jpg
Welcome to the family, Aggies.
Earthshaking news that you might have missed if you're not a sports fan: Texas A&M is leaving the Big 12 to go to the Southeastern Conference.

If you're not a sports fan, perhaps your earth has remained unshaken, but it's a monster step for the Aggies.

To help them with the transition, here's an introductory guide to the teams of the SEC.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: This deals only with football matters because no one in the SEC gives a shit about basketball except Kentucky. So you'll fit right into the SEC basketball vibe, which when your team is going really, really well you momentarily pretend to give a flip about it. But if it comes down to clicking on a headline about a) a thrilling win by the basketball team, or b) a mostly info-free recruiting update about an offensive tackle, you're hitting the latter one first every time.)

This ain't no Kyle Field
SEC WEST

1. Alabama

You will never beat Alabama while Nick Saban is there. It's just an impossibility you will have to accept. Only possible way: If -- and this is admittedly a longshot -- Bama engages in some questionable recruiting practices and -- even longer shot -- the NCAA actually does something about it.

2. Arkansas

Aggie fans are familiar with the Razorbacks from the old Southwestern Conference days. Pleasant, bucolic memories of trips to Fayette Nam still excite hopes of one day going back there again to experience the magic. And now that dream has come true!!

3. Auburn

In terms of the state of Alabama, Auburn is the Texas A&M to Bama's UT. So maybe your annual get-together could be called the Afterthought Bowl. Or maybe the In The Shadows Bowl. Your choice.

4. LSU

You think Kyle Field is an intimidating place to play? Just because you walk around with swords and have yell leaders dressed like a TDCJ work crew? The drunken, screaming fans at a Tiger Stadium night game laugh at your delusion.

5. Mississippi State

Much like you, the Bulldogs are still trying to recover from a Jackie Sherrill Era. And Starkville contains are the culture and excitement of College Station.

6. Ole Miss

A team that revels in racist Confederate imagery, Ole Miss and its fans have nothing in common with the open, enlightened, multicultural-embracing fan base of Texas A&M.

UT had better call USC and Miami and discuss how fragile being the king of football is.  They might also want to notice that A&M has beat the might tea sips just a few time lately.   The Big Ten and SEC don't want a prima donna in their conferences like UT.   Third team to leave the Big 12 and Texas hasn't gotten the hint yet.  Ohio State doesn't appear bigger than their conference and neither should Texas.

College Football is on the way out.  In five years it'll be as bad as the NFL.

if there were a TAMU Network instead of Longhorn Network, they would not be taking their ball and going home. Sour grapes
