Overall, the Texas A&M Football program should benefit from this move
Just like many other Aggie fans, I am not jumping for joy this is happening — this is more of an eye-roll situation. We all know why the SEC did it and, at the end of the day, money talks. It will benefit the conference in the long run as both these teams can generate a lot of money and have a history of success.
A&M has put itself in a very good position with all their sports programs but mainly football. The SEC has made us grow and we continue to become more of an SEC school every year. This realignment proves that Texas was wrong. It is them admitting their network was a failure, their conference wasn’t going to work, and all the time they ran their conference all it did was get further and further behind.
I am not totally opposed to it because in football I think A&M is in a much better place going forward now. With A&M having a 10-year head start to adjust to the schedule, getting better in recruiting, and building up their facilities to be some of the best in college football — the Aggies are ready to compete.
The identity is built, the brand is bigger than ever, and if the trends keep up with each football program it will be so long to the orange and white for a long time.
