Baylor’s In The Way

Posted on: September 7th, 2011 by SECAG 2 Comments

Statement from Dr. Bernie Machen, Chair, Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors:

After receiving unanimous written assurance from the Big 12 on September 2 that the Southeastern Conference was free to accept Texas A&M to join as a new member, the presidents and chancellors of the SEC met last night with the intention of accepting the application of Texas A&M to be the newest member of the SEC. We were notified yesterday afternoon that at least one Big 12 institution had withdrawn its previous consent and was considering legal action. The SEC has stated that to consider an institution for membership, there must be no contractual hindrances to its departure. The SEC voted unanimously to accept Texas A&M University as a member upon receiving acceptable reconfirmation that the Big 12 and its members have reaffirmed the letter dated September 2, 2011.

It is really starting to feel like Baylor is that little cousin that ruins all the fun because they cry and whine to the point that no one is allowed to do anything with out taking them along. They are doing everything they can to stop Texas A&M from leaving and it’s getting to the point of pathetic. We are going to leave and the rest of the Big 12-2-1 would like it just to happen and be done with so everyone can make their own plans, but Baylor just won’t stand down. We’ll see what happens with the Big 12-2-1 meeting today to discuss plans moving forward, but for now the ONLY thing in the way is Baylor

Oh and here is the letter from the Big 12-2-1 to Mike Slive and the SEC assuring them we were clear of legal action moving forward – Clearance Letter – I guess they forgot to send Baylor their copy.

    Dear Hypocrites,

    You had no problem joining the BIG-12 in the nineties leaving Rice, TCU, SMU, and UH behind (they did not sue you!), but now you feel the need to stomp your feet and sue when you simply feel threatened! Wow, your history! Ann Richards bought for you a possibly undeserved fifteen years of BCS sports! Are law suits your preferred method to entice other schools to play with you? Unbelievable! Did you ever think that developing a fan base for support, filling stadiums, and bringing something to the conference would endear you to the world of collegiate sport rather than lawyers? You should be embarrassed!

    Dear Baylor (Big 12 Doormat),

    This last ditch effort makes you look as feeble on off the field as you have looked on it. Go ahead and try to sue, campaign, or get the Texas legislature involved to keep the dying Big 12 together. You still can’t stop OU/OSU leaving for the PAC 12. Your actions confirm why this conference has become a joke. Do yourselves a favor and start familiarizing yourself with the WAC, MWC, and Conference USA.

    And by the way Dan Beebe deserves every bit of this. This was done deal last year, and Baylor and Beebe did everything from lie, swindle, and cower down to Texas to keep this joke of a conference together!

    Good luck and congrats to the Aggies.
