Yep. My BU/Tech alumni friends and co-workers are rather peeved. 

Seeing some Okie State tweeters who are assuming they'll somehow sneak in as well.

I think some of this has to do in some part with the NIL. It’s RS QBs getting $1,000,00 NIL offers. You gotta try and find the bank somewhere if boosters are spending their money on players.

Twitter is going full "QAnon" trying to figure out who leaked what, and why:

What would be the most Aggie thing ever is if they get booted from the SEC for leaking the intel in the hopes of either or both Texas and Oklahoma lawmakers putting a stop to the schools leaving the Big 12 and joining the SEC.

If it is proven A&M leaked the info to the media and the SEC had asked all schools to keep it quiet yet A&M went against those instructions in order to kill the deal out of selfish reasons you’d think the SEC conference would have a leg to stand on in court.

A&M - Out

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State & Texas - In

 

People would lose their minds.

I just got off a conference call with Nick and Greg. The Aggies can stay, but their permanent cross division rival is now UGA, and they have to play BAMA and LSU on the road for the next 6 consecutive years. They have to learn their lesson here.

This is correct, I've done that for several years before Pittman came along, just glad I could throw my oversized brown bag away last season finally. 

Woo pig is now a reoccurring tune in my household

Pittman won’t make the difference.

They are always two parts of these discussions. 
 

Their is the football side and the money side. The money side makes these decisions. No matter how irreverent Texas is on the football side they will always be relevant on the money side.

Exactly. You can make the argument that Texas has been irrelevant on the field, but generally speaking, they are very much relevant.

Withholding my opinions here, this is what I gathered that could hold this move up:

1) State legislature-  any move like this that Texas makes needs some type of ok from state government.  

2) TV contracts-  I’ve seen that the b12 owns the TV revenue of all B12 schools through 2025.  Not sure what this means… could mean FOX still airs B12 games with OU and Texas and they still dip in the B12 pot and not get SEC money until 2025… above my pay grade to figure that mess out.

3) LHN-  this should not be an issue.  ESPN has the SEC contract… channel might get absorbed, channel might get expanded… either way, could be used as an asset in this move.

4) SEC presidents-  doesn’t look like they will block this move, but A&M is calling this a breach of their “gentlemen’s agreement” with the SEC and will try to sell that to block this move.
