It was amazing seeing yesterday’s fevered outburst of speculation and anticipation over the TAMU-to-the-SEC story. And I have to confess that I don’t really get all the excitement. It’s not like Stewart Mandel’s Montana buddies would ever identify Texas A&M as a member of college football’s royal class. I can see why the westernmost members of the conference would welcome the Aggies’ entry, but I’m not sure why the rest of us should get particularly worked up about it.
And then there’s the matter of which other school gets asked to come in with A&M. Other than Oklahoma, it’s an underwhelming bunch.
Somebody tell me what I’m missing here.
