The future’s uncertain and the end is always near.

Let it roll, baby, roll.

Texas A&M’s departure from the Big 12 Conference drew closer to reality on Monday when the university’s president, R. Bowen Loftin, sent a letter to the Big 12 board chairman, the Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton, notifying the league that the Aggies would formally withdraw — very likely on Tuesday — according to two college officials with direct knowledge of the decision.

I have a very hard time believing that the SEC is ready to commit to an unbalanced divisional arrangement, so if TAMU’s on board, that immediately begs the question about the identity of the potential 14th member.

Of course, Arkansas could always jump to the Big 12 to even out the numbers.  Riiight.
