After years of watching Greg McGarity’s submission act when it came to conference scheduling (if the SEC winds up adopting the 1+7 format in the end, I’d like to see Josh Brooks trade his consent in return for Auburn playing two straight games in Athens), I gotta say I am both jealous and impressed with this kind of attitude:
Texas A&M doesn’t know what year it will renew its celebrated football rivalry with Texas. No later than 2025 but perhaps 2024. The Aggies know exactly where the game will be, however.
“I can’t imagine the atmosphere when that game is played,” A&M athletic director Ross Bjork told the Chronicle on Thursday during the SEC spring meetings. “And it will be played at Kyle Field.”
… As a league newbie along with the Sooners, the Longhorns don’t really have a say in the league’s early scheduling anyway, Bjork added.
“They realize they’re going to be very, very happy to be in the SEC, and that’s why they made the move,” Bjork said. “They’ll take whatever (they can get) … and they don’t have a vote in the process. It’s only current membership.”
“Fuck you, Texas, you don’t have a vote and you’ll take what we give you”? Total baller move.
Welcome to the SEC, ‘Horns.
