What's An Texas Aggie To Do?

Texas A&M has put itself in a very interesting position under all this conference realignment chaos. Big brother Texas has been courted by every conference willing to meet their demand while little brother Texas A&M scouting their own place to land and may end up in a better situation.

The Pac 10 Conference appears to be fawning over Texas A&M pretty hard in order to execute their "Pac 16" scenario that would be that leagues huge splash onto the college athletic landscape. Sunday Pac 10 (soon to be Pac 11) Conference commissioner Larry Scott met with Texas A&M officials. A report came out that A&M turned down the Pac 10's invite however, Texas A&M denies that and continues to say all options all on the table.

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Texas A&M's attention is now toward the SEC. They cite an "insider" with knowledge of the situation in their report referring to the University's intrique of the SEC.

The Bryan-College Station (TX) Eagle reports that SEC commissioner Mike Slive visited Texas A&M Saturday.

Mark Passwaters of seems to believe that it's a done deal between the SEC and Texas A&M.

Now would Texas A&M need a dance partner or would the SEC go with 13 teams? Who knows though a sugar daddy in Memphis has $10 million reason why the SEC should consider the Tigers as Texas A&M's dance partner.
