Aggies to Join SEC

Clemson, Florida State and Missouri may also join.

The next time the University of Georgia faces Texas A&M, it could be a conference matchup.

ESPN is reporting the Aggies will join the Southeastern Conference as soon as 2012. Texas A&M may not be the only team to make the switch. A source told ESPN the SEC also plans to pursue Florida State, Clemson and Missouri.

According to the ESPN report, the Texas A&M board of regents will meet Monday to discuss conference alignment.

Welcome! Y'all c'mon in and join the club. Us Auburn War Eagle Plainsmen Tigers will whip up on y'all just like we do the other teams in the SEC. AUBURN....."The University" of Alabama. Betcha Kristi will reply within the hour. :-)

Well, I happen to agree with Bear Bryant - nothing matters more than beating that cow college on the other side of the state, but we'll be glad to beat the Aggies too.

Touche, Kristi!

Chiming in from Suwanee ... my alma mater UGA has been a punching bag lately, but it seems the rich (the SEC) keep getting richer. Everyone wants in on the conference that keeps winning national titles.

Steve - I am no UGA fan, but I am going to be absolutely sick if they don't manage to beat Boise St. It's just plain embarrassing for an SEC team to lose to the Mountain West.

Or Conference USA ... remember the SEC loss to Central Florida in 2010?

Something to think about here...the driving factor in all of this is money. Texas Auto and Money opens up the state of Texas to the SEC and is a no-brainer. But Clempson and FSU don't break any new territory and would appear unlikely. Except Florida State is historically over the last 20 years one of the most watched teams on TV and are seen as a national power. But I'm not sure they'd leave the ACC after being spurned twice before by the SEC anyway. So I think another added team would either be Va. Tech or W. Virginia.
