Big 12 released a statement paraphrased below: "Blah, blah, blah, strongly conveyed to Texas A&M its unanimous desire that it remain a Big 12 member, and acknowledged its value to the Conference.... A&M's concerns were aired and actions taken to address those concerns over institutional networks...." This part was in my sick premonition I had earlier: "The other nine memebers reaffirmed their long term, unconditional and unequivocal commitments made to each other and the Conference last summer. Although the Board hopes Texas A&M remains in the Conference, the Board is prepared to aggressively move forward to explore expansion opportunities. In doing so, the Board recognizes the strength of the Big 12 Conference national brand (i.e. TEXAS) and the opportunity to capitalize on it." ARGGG! So, in summary, the remaining schools all decided to huddle together and continue to let the bully roam the playground while the sky falls in around them. We'll limp this thing along another couple of years while other schools make moves to solidify their future. I saw this coming, and it's not the outcome I was hoping for. I just hope in 2 or 3 years, we're not left out in the cold holding our empty lunch sack.
