The Aggies are a joke.
After a 15-year marriage, they want a divorce. Greener pastures they say, failing to camouflage their hissy-fit jealousy of Texas. Their long-time spouse, the Big 12 Conference, shrugs and begins courting other attractive partners.
And now, almost three weeks after we'd all deemed the Aggies dead and gone, they're still here rattling their stupid sabres as if to say "Okay, this time I mean it. I'm really gonna move my shit out and leave."
New York Times last night posted a story about yet another official letter to the Big 12. The divorce is done.
Go already. Have fun getting your ass kicked in the SEC and becoming even less relevant in the Metroplex. I mean, why would Dallas-based media any longer give a damn about a school that's three hours away and plays half its games in places like Tennessee, Georgia and Florida?
Oh, and by the way, since you're breaking a contract you signed last April with the Big 12 and Fox Sports worth $1 billion, leaving is going to cost you in the neighborhood of $20 million. Just leave a check on the table when you leave.
With the Aggies' departure imminent, the Big 12 is left with its second consecutive lame-duck season. The future, however, could be more exciting than ever.More »
