On Wednesday August 24th, 2011 Texas A&M announced to the Big 12 their intention to entertain leaving the conference for another.
"We look forward to hearing from you." CLASSIC!
Rumors started today that texas is looking to replace the annual Thanksgiving day game against us with Notre Dame. That's all fine with me.....but they're going to need more than one decent OoC game to make their schedule respectable. OU and then the little-7 isn't going to cut it.
We started to read, shortly thereafter, a whole bunch of spin about how texas came back to the Big 12 last year after getting a pen stroke away from joining the Pac-10 to save the rivalry. What a load of revisionist crap. texas came back to the Big 12 because the Pac-10 wouldn't allow for them to start their own network and Dan Beebe said the Big 12 would. Bottom line.
It'll be interesting to see how this all shakes out in the end. I mentioned on Facebook a couple of weeks ago that OU has been WAAAY to quiet during all of this. If nothing else, this season should be a wild and emotional one.
