Giving the Horns the finger

Looks like it might be time to start scoping out which airports are closest to College Station and what kind of night life there is in town.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry says his alma mater, Texas A&M, and the SEC are discussing the Aggies possible future membership in the league, according to a report in the Dallas Morning News.
Perry was asked by reporters from the paper on Wednesday about recent swirling speculation surrounding the move.
"I'll be real honest with you. I just read about it the same time as y'all did. ... As far as I know, conversations are being had. That's frankly all I know. I just refer you to the university and the decision makers over there."
Perry once served as a yell leader for the university, whose president, R. Bowen Loftin, recently acknowledged that there was "uncertainty" regarding the university's future membership in the Big 12.
Also, is gas any cheaper in Texas? Maybe Coach Sherman could bring a barrel or two to sweeten the pot.

Gives new meaning to the term Southeastern.

Gives new meaning to South Anything. TA&M can pull more viewers to SEC legitimately without having to go to border states. If the Texas kids view SEC ball and slow the herd stampede for UT, it's good for all.

Ok not so much. Saw last week where someone stretched the "marketing" point with Ok to include border states that they would pull in. I beg to differ. A&M will certainly benefit themselves and us and that's why they have an open invite. They bring as much to the table as they will get. Any others should be considered one-at-the-time.

Any computer can come up with a reasonable in-conference schedule if you admitted A&M next year and someone else the year after. Quit noddling something that will be computer driven when the time comes.
