    "Aggies to Secede" - Blogpost

    Yeah, I know. Lots of rumors below, but under the "where there is smoke, there could be fire" doctrine, I thought I'd post this.

    Aggies to SECede? The Blog Hawgs

    I'd be much more willing to believe this stuff if the rumors weren't stating that TAMU was trying to play in the SEC in 2012....I simply cannot even imagine the logistical nightmare that would create one month away from the season.

    All rumors posted today (and retweeted/quoted) came from subscriber-based sites....coincidence? I think not. They want $$$ from new subscribers and that's all.

    These rumors are going to keep popping up until either:

    A) They actually go to the SEC

    or

    B) The LHN gets changed to the Big XII Network.

    C) football season starts so sites have something worthwhile to talk about.

    I do agree this seems highly unlikely...especially given the "getting a 2012 schedule lined up" rumor.

    No way the SEC would change their entire schedule less than a month out from the season.

    Isn't in the contract that the LHN can't be the Big XII network?

    hawkfan,

    I know this is a big part of your life but most people here (including me) will simply ignore rumors from aTm. You're going to have to bring something originated in SEC land by a non Aggie.

    The 2012 schedule is 13 months away. The 2011 schedule is 3 weeks away.

    More along the lines that Texas can't develop or join another network:

    It's understandable considering how badly you want it to happen.
