When Wednesday’s big story of Texas and Oklahoma reaching out to the SEC broke, media members were quick to reach out to Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork for the Aggie response.

On Wednesday afternoon, Bjork visited “The Paul Finebaum Show” from SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama to discuss the big news. Bjork reiterated his point that Texas A&M wants to be the lone SEC program in the state.

Bjork told Finebaum that one of the reasons Texas A&M left the Big 12 for the SEC was wanting to have a “standalone identity” in the state of Texas.

“The SEC has been a perfect fit for us,” Bjork told Paul Finebaum. “We want to maintain that same identity. Perhaps there’s a reason that Texas and Oklahoma are looking around – if that’s the case.”

Bjork continued, “We love being in the SEC. We love being the only (SEC) program in the state of Texas. We’re going to maintain that position, but we’re also going to make sure that we are a leader in college athletics and we’ll see what the future holds.”
