A&M Heading to SEC in 2012? Tech and Others to Pac-12?

85

Today brings us reports that ESPN has informed Texas Tech that the only way that ESPN will televise the TT/Texas game this season is on the Longhorn Network. As a result, apparently Tech is now pursuing membership in the Pac-12 conference, likely with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. And of course, A&M is now accelerating plans to move to the SEC (according to TexAgs.com), even though it puts this season at risk: "The Ags did not want any distractions during football season and definitely did not want to receive the 'officiating' that Nebraska got during their farewell tour of the Big 12 last year. It looks like the timeline has been sped up." Yep, we're rubbernecking at the train wreck we left behind. And to quote Steve Pederson: "This is why we did what we did."
