Report: Texas A&M to the SEC, What It Means to Texas Rivalry
ESPN is reporting that Texas A&M will announce on Monday that it is officially moving to the SEC starting with the 2012 season.
In large part, A&M's move was spurred by Texas' $300 million, 20-year deal with ESPN to create the Longhorn Network. Texas A&M -- and several other schools -- were not happy with Texas having its network, saying it gave the Longhorns an unfair recruiting advantage.
Hence, the split.
However, many now wonder will what become of one of college football's great rivalries. It says here that, for posterity's sake, all sides will come to realize that this is "The Godfather." That is, it's just business. Texas A&M is making a business move by bolting to the SEC, and while it just might lead to the demise of the Big 12, it's hard to imagine that the annual showdown between the Aggies and the Longhorns will also die.
If anything, the rivalry will be even more enhanced now.
