The Texas A&M SECede Movement!

The Texas A&M SECede Movement!

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Rick Perry, governor of Texas and potential Presidential candidate is making waves in the sports world these days with his comments about his alma mater, Texas A&M.

“I’ll be real honest with you. I just read about it the same time as y’all did. … As far as I know, conversations are being had. That’s frankly all I know. I just refer you to the university and the decision makers over there.”

His comments are pretty insignificant, but he’s helped bring the issue into the media forefront even further. This will absolutely contribute to more Texas A&M fans jumping on board with the “SECede” movement that is really picking up.

This will be one of the more interesting storylines that will play out in coming months and years for SEC fans. More people are coming to the opinion that it is only a matter of time especially with the Longhorn Network really upsetting the balance of the Big 12 and the Texas schools.

Update:

Here’s a quote from a Texas A&M blog which can be read here. Take it for what it’s worth:

Just received a phone call from a source that has been very reliable in the past. I was told that A&M will make an announcement that they will leave the Big 12 and join SEC some time before September 1st. So much for waiting until the spring. I assumed the timetable would be pushed up because with the mainstream media coverage something was going to have to happen sooner rather than later. This is the first time I have been given a date. Received an e-mail from a friend who has good sources inside the state capital. There will be no roadblocks from the state legislature to A&M joining the SEC. To be frank, the legislature will not be in session until after the election and they have more important things to worry about anyways. The governor is on board with A&M joining the SEC and even if he was not, he is too busy with preparing for a run at the presidency to worry about collegiate athletics.

Here are some fun graphics:





"Thank you for making it so easy to keep up with my team.
You provide SEC fans with an amazing, free service!"

  1. Not gonna lie, thats a pretty sweet t-shirt

  2. That is a sweet shirt, i agree!

  3. Texas gay & m. You want sum? GET SUM! GO DAWGS!!

  4. that is pretty damn sweet but who are we going to get to join to make the conference even? Miami?

    I would love Virginia Tech. They have good football and one of the best introduction when the team runs on the field. They have really good fan support from what I can tell.

    I don’t see anything Clemson brings to the table. Lets not invite Miami. Maybe Missouri would be ok.

    Clemson is a good fit but brings nothing to the table. Texas A&M and Oklahoma bring new markets and great programs. I say we bring them in and move Auburn east. 14 teams. Done.

    Va Tech is fine if we have to go 16 teams but otherwise they don’t do much for me. Missouri belongs in the BIg Ten I think.

  9. i like the Va. Tech thing

  10. No Virginia Tech! The only reason they appeal to y’all is because none of y’all have to live around these VT losers. What’s the only sport VT has a national championship in? That’s right: bass fishing!

  11. It’s a no brainer, A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, And Texas if they will come along. Texas will come if Oklahoma and A&M make the move.

    • Why would you want to bring aboard a school that has been the driving force behind the death of two conferences? (Southwest Conference & Big XII) The SEC may hate each other on the field, but they get along in the board room to the betterment of all the schools. I think this has been a major factor in so many teams being competitive rather than just one or two good teams like most conferences.

  12. It has to be FSU. A natural fit. There is no more recognizable national brand in the ACC except Miami, and I sure as hell don’t want them in.

    Slive said he cares about geography. If they take TAMU from the west, the next target will come from the Atlantic coast.

  13. FSU for sure, they are up and coming with a great HC and it make the FSU v UF game actually matter. VT and Clemson are both on the way down and Texas will never join unless their new network goes under.

  14. No, if we’re gonna go West, let’s go for the TV money. TCU= Dallas Fort Worth and a good program. Houston is the 4th largest city in the country. The cougars and frogs have been good for the last 4 years. We don’t need A&M, we don’t need College Station, they need us.

    • TCU just joined the Big East. I live in Dallas, and as much as I would love to see SEC teams rotating through Ft. Worth. TCU is not an SEC School. They are a small school. It wasn’t until they made the Rose Bowl that they got good coverage in the DFW Metroplex.

    • Arkansas’ biggest out-of-state alumni association and Texas A&M’s second biggest alumni association are both in Dallas. Dallas already shows the 11:30 SEC broadcast on one of its local stations. A&M would solidify the market while TCU can’t fill its 40,000 seat stadium at home.

  15. I like A&M and FSU.

  16. A&M and FSU would be perfect…but who says FSU would leave a conference theywill likely dominate over the next fw years…and i doubt oklahoma goes anywhere…so id say bring in Mizzou… And shift Auburn to the East

  17. Really? How many games would fsu win in the sec this year. VT, maybe…. but clemson or fsu, absolutely not in my useless opinion.

  18. Move AU east?? So then maybe AU and AL could play each other twice. Iron Bowl and SEC championship!!

  19. Nice looking shrt for sure.

  20. If you get Missouri and Clemson there would be 4 Tigers!
