Following a conference call, the Big 12 Board of Directors issued a statement regarding the possible departure of Texas A&M to the SEC:

The Board strongly conveyed to Texas A&M its unanimous desire that it remain a Big 12 member, and acknowledged its value to the Conference. The Board noted that Texas A&M expressed concerns about institutional networks and that the athletics directors worked together and took actions, which the Board has approved, to adequately address those concerns. 

The other nine members 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 and the opportunity to capitalize on it.

To summarize, the conference wants to make sure all the Aggies want to know they're welcome in the big, happy Big 12 family.

The door to the SEC was not slammed shut whatsoever. When it is all said and done, . And they should be. It makes sense. The tough thing for the SEC will be poaching another school to make 14 teams ().

The Mighty SEC is on my mind!! Hoping Texas A&M gets an invite! Recommitting the Oklahoma Sooners Find a ways 1. Best Answer: Get a Clue and SECede to the Mighty SEC! 2. Find another way to get out of the old Big 8. 3. That way better INCLUDE getting away from FOREVER from kansas! If these do not happen Oklahoma will find itself increasingly MARGINALIZED in an Increasingly Continuously Contentious Counterfeit Conference!
