SEC Football 2011: Everything You Need to Know About Latest Texas A&M Talk
Here is the latest news regarding Texas A&M and their move to the SEC.
The Aggies are still in limbo waiting for Oklahoma’s decision to stay in the Big 12. A possible lawsuit from schools hinges on whether or not the Sooners stay in the conference since their departure would all but doom the conference.
Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have waived their rights to litigation. Oklahoma State was the latest one to waive – they did so Thursday.
Kansas, Iowa State and Baylor has definitively stated they will not waive their rights to sue. Missouri and Kansas State have yet to say whether they will waive those rights.
Until there is no threat of litigation against the conference, the SEC will not accept Texas A&M into the league. This ban could be lifted at any time if the conference so chose.
There are rumblings that if all of this is not sorted out by June 30, 2012, the date specified by the SEC as the Aggies entrance date into the conference, Texas A&M could move independent for a year.
There is still the lingering question of who the 14th SEC team will be. But apparently that isn’t such a concern to people like Auburn president Jay Gogue.
"I don't think there'd be any real push to get to 14, at least there wouldn't be from my perspective," Gogue said. "We could really easily say, 'Texas A&M, we want you to meet all the schools in the Southeast, so this year you'll play in the West, next year you play in the East.' If a 14th came around and everybody was all excited, that would be fine."
