The 2012 regular season is complete for the Texas A&M football team, and it is now time to reflect. The Aggies surprised everyone with their 10-2 season and 6-2 conference record.
The Ags were expected to struggle after a mediocre 7-6 season in 2011 season and their move from the Big 12 to the stronger Southeastern Conference. Their early success in the league of champions has helped flip the script on how the program is viewed in the state of Texas and nationally.
When Texas A&M president Bowen Loftin discussed making a "100-year decision" many scoffed at him and claimed the move was simply a money grab. The football team's performance and the national recognition it has received is exactly the type spotlight that Loftin hoped the SEC would bring to A&M.
This is a postseason look at why the move from the Big 12 to the SEC has proven to be the correct choice.
