Deaton says no current signs A&M leaving Big 12
It is like TAM met an old flame SEC twice in the last two years and said she was hot. Yer wifey UT says she will take him back.
I am more worried about Deaton being honest about MU's commitment to the B12 than I am about his assessment on aggy. As long as we have the 4 flagships (UT, OU, MU, KU) we can add another program like them (BYU). From there add 2. Of course I would prefer to keep the ags but if they want to run away that is their business as long as they keep the SEC from going after another B12 school.
Mizzou seems too smart to head to the SEC. I believe they reaffirmed their position in the B12, and it makes sense. They would leave for the Big10, but no one else IMO. Pinkel and the administrators know that their up and coming football team would be derailed in the SEC. The travel also gets worse for all their other sports, and the academic partnerships get a lot worse as well. This move doesn't make sense unless the Big 12 is dead. It is OU that I think the SEC would want to drag in, but OSU and the state legislature will stop that.
So why is Bebe the only one not commenting on this issue?
"aTm is staying in the Big 12! The SEC is committing suicide at the border rather than attempt to lure us to them!"
I like how he says he sees no indication that A&M is leaving and then separates them out when referring to the 9 teams that are committed to strengthening the conference.
