As we noted last week, reports out of College Station have officials at Texas A&M worried and concerned about their rivals’ $300 million soon-to-be-launched television network. They’re worried that it could provide a recruiting advantage for UT. They’re concerned that their fans might some day have to actually subscribe to the thing just to catch the Horns and Aggies play ball (though there’s a slim chance of that ever happening).
Texas A&M’s board of regents has actually added the Longhorn Network to the agenda of its regularly scheduled board meeting at the end of the week. That news — naturally — led many to believe that A&M had called a meeting to talk about a planned move to the SEC. Not so.
Repeat after us:
1. Texas A&M will someday join the SEC.
2. That day is not in the immediate future.
