SEC Already KISSING TEXAS'____
If Texas and A&M are not in the same pod it has already been negotiated to Texas' preference. The puckering has already been done but separating the 2 makes no sense!
They are only (roughly) 90 miles apart and would be the 2 closest teams in the Conference. Different pods? Why?
They already have a long history and tradition that rivals Bama/Auburn, OSU/Michigan, Florida/Georgia and any others you can name! Fans of both LOVE this game---only the UT powers that be do not.
Part of why A&M jumped was because Texas was exerting power over the conference to the detriment of all other members. Longhorns Network, etc... Look it up.
Part of that and any proposed separation of the two now, is because Texas looks bad to alums when they lose to A&M. In true chicken shite UT fashion why not eliminate the problem---if we don't play them, we can't lose to them.
I think---if it comes to pass that UT/A&M are not in the same pod---it is highly probable that the SEC has already begun sucking up to the UT money/influence.

EDIT: I stand by all above but everything I've seen/read away from the board has the Aggies doing all the griping and gnashing. I get it. Valid recruiting concerns specifically. Past history of "Little Brother" too. I say "drop a pair" and go kick UT in the arse and the other crap will sort itself out.
Texas has their own issues with it too. But---NO WAY these two teams should be separated! Neither team should get special treatment whether they do/don't want to be in the same division/pod. This yearly game is bigger than the UT/OU State Fair Game and rivals the FL/GA & GUMP/AUBURN games for SEC/TV revenue. And let's just state the obvious: As far as College Football goes, there are no false pretenses left to harp on---It's all about the money in all things and all ways.

Why would you assume A&M would want them in the same pod?

Aggies don't want them in their pod and maybe Sankey promised them that to ease tensions. But they definitely should be together and have the guaranteed yearly game

I disagree. I think not putting them in the same Pod would be at the request of Texas A&M just as much as Texas, if not more. If they played every year and there is a more constant winner, the recruiting of Texas will tilt to one side. If they are separated and don't play every year, it will depend on overall success on and off the field. Texas A&M is mad about not being the only team from Texas, so they will do what they can to try and keep as space away from Texas.

Agreed. It's virtually clear the TAMU AD doesn't want them in the SEC. Keeping them in different pods somewhat protects TAMU's interests.

They are like 110 miles. Starkville is closer to Tuscaloosa.

It would def be AM that would request that. If we vote yes don't put them in our POD. That makes way more sense than the garbage you posted.

And the glorious melt that came with it.


That was one of the funny things when Coach O was hired. Tards would come up with ridiculous predictions and 3/4 of the board would go into full melt over the made-up bull shite.

The Fans (of both teams) LOVE this game. I have been exposed to each of the rivalries above except GA/FL. Besides SEC/TV coffers this game would be the biggest money maker locally. The entire state gets insane over this game.
A&M tried to work it out to play the game after leaving but UT Admin (don't forget Mack Brown either) shut it down hard.
I'd guarantee you that Jimbo and Sark would throw self preservation to the wind on this one and say "Let's play!"

I don't give a shite what either one of them want! If the SEC does this I would hope we align geographically. None of this put Dallas in the NFC East because they are Dallas bull shite. They come here they play in a pod with OU, A&M, and Mizzou. If they don't like it they can join the Pac-12 or ACC.

UGA, FL, Bama and Auburn would throw a shite fit if LSU got gifted that pod. No way it happens. That’s the real reason they won’t have UT and A&M in the same pod, IMO. It has more to do with balance than past grievances. Swapping Arky and A&M leaves all four pods with two “good” teams.

To hell with that! We could have stayed in the Big 12 for that.

You are correct the Texas will expect everyone to kiss their ass, but they want A&M in their pod. They view it as Big brother/Little brother relationship. They want to keep us close so that we don’t do anything they disapprove of. That’s why they didn’t like it when we left. They no longer had influence.

Y’all do not know what you are getting into.

Yep. Well said & point well taken. Entirely possible and you may prove to be right but for reasons stated I disagree.

All facts. Look them up. There, you've had your attention from outside your pod today. Be well.
