Where We Stand

Posted on: September 10th, 2011 by SECAG No Comments

So there wasn’t very much Texas A&M Aggies to the SEC action being released to the public or even leaked the last couple days. However, there was a large amount of action occurring behind the scenes and we here at AggiestotheSEC.com have the first hand look at what has been happening!

This story starts in the city of Waco, Texas…

Here we run into the man leading the charge against the Aggies, Ken Starr. We received the image below from someone inside the Baylor staff of the villain as he gives his staff a speech about how proud he was that they were being “Baylor Bold”.

He was also heard proudly telling staffers, “We are saving college football for everyone! And the Trillions we will make from holding Texas A&M hostage and manipulating OU will be well worth it when we can finally buy another tarp to cover our other endzone”.

“Though our first attempt at a campaign to stop this madness was shut down by TXDot for copyright infringement, we will come up with another genius plan to save Texas football, that’s right, we’ll RISE UP!”

Meanwhile south on 6 in College Station, TX…

Dr. Bowen Loftin was preparing to lead his people out of the shadow of the dying Big 12-2-1. He was frustrated with the run around and other schools going back on their words.

In preparation for the tough time ahead he grew his battle beard and donned his ceremonial robes worn when it is time to vanquish his enemies. This move is a “100 year decision” for Texas A&M and Dr. Loftin was not one to take it lightly. We are SEC bound and no “Baylor” is going to keep that from being so!

Now many people have seen a honey badger online and wished they had one as a pet(if you haven’t seen one, go here – Honey Badger on Youtube). Up until now though, no one has seen the amazing animal that is the Loftin Badger! There is one in existence and it is owned by Dr. Loftin. This beautiful animal was seen this week as Dr. Loftin sent him to Waco to warn Pharaoh Ken Starr that he should “Let My Aggies Go” because the Loftin Badger doesn’t give a %$&*! The ferocious animal can be seen below as he entered Baylor’s campus.

Now you are essentially caught up on where we stand so far. The Aggies have been accepted to and are ready to join the SEC as soon as Baylor realizes they are only delaying the inevitable. Now that Dr. Loftin is at work and the Loftin Badger has been unleashed, this thing could be wrapped up very early this next week.

Baylor Still Being Baylor

Posted on: September 8th, 2011 by SECAG No Comments

Well if you’ve been following along today you know that a lot has changed since this morning while almost nothing has changed. We still have the votes to join the SEC and we are still leaving and Baylor is still in our way.

Why? That is all that keeps running through my head and was running rampant around the twitterverse today. What is the end game in all this for the school that deserves to be and should most likely end up in a non-Automatic qualifying conference. We are leaving and all you are doing is burning bridges for future games and making a reputation that will do nothing but hinder your entrance into your next conference home. I mean really, holding A&M and or OU hostage is really going to make for a beneficial and stable conference going forward?! Everyone has carried Baylor since they weaseled their way into the Big 12-2-1 when it was created 15 years ago, yet 15 years and 18 Big XII wins later, the desire to hang with the “big boys” still runs strong in your delusional little Baylor heads. I mean Iowa State has even had “successful” years in comparison, but they know who they are and you are still Baylor.

Now let’s look at this from a little bit different perspective. I can’t see going to a new conference as anything but a positive for Baylor. Just look at TCU as a great example of a what a program similar to Baylor’s could build with a smart move. They win a lot and get tons of national exposure because of it. They recruit very well, win on a regular basis and get mentioned every year as a team that has a chance to push through because they set themselves up to succeed. The money initially lost with the move to a smaller conference can even start to be made up with the increased merchandising and ticket sales that come from having a successful program. They could likely have more say in the conference decisions and control as they would come in as a larger program and almost definitely have instant success against a less daunting schedule.

Now maybe none of that could actually happen, because let’s face it, Baylor is Baylor. They could very possibly and most likely will figure out how to get to the bottom of any conference they end up in and try to ride the coattails of their new conference mates, such as East Carolina and UAB.

When it comes down to it, this whole thing is beginning to piss me off, as it is thousands of other Aggies and SEC fans out there. The sooner this ends, the better everyone will be. The conference was getting out of our way in the best interest of everyone and the only thing holding us back at this point is Baylor still being Baylor.

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.

On the Eve of Secession

Posted on: September 7th, 2011 by SECAG No Comments

It is widely known that the SEC Presidents met today to vote on extending the Texas Aggies the long awaited SEC invite. What has come from this meeting has yet to be officially announced, but it is being talked about as anywhere from a 10-2 to a 12-0 yes vote. Either way it should be announced very soon that we are heading East. On that announcement front, we are hearing that parking space and event space have been reserved and setup for a big event tomorrow at Kyle, and we can only assume that our coveted announcement will be happening tomorrow.

The last month of rumor and speculation has seemed like an extremely long one and the official announcement can’t come fast enough. I for one am going to be fairly useless at work tomorrow following twitter and refreshing my browser before enjoying some well made bourbon in celebration.

This is all obviously coming at a great time for Aggie athletics with just about every program on the way up, or already residing at the top of their game. This was none the clearer than Sunday afternoon at Kyle Field. Our Aggies showed up and took care of business the way a top 10 team should against a very good SMU football team. The crowd and atmosphere were electric, not just during the game, but all day. Walking across campus it just felt different. The tailgating was at full force, the amount of people on campus was amazing and the weather turned awesome, albeit windy, just in time for 86,000 plus to enjoy a great opening game.

I’m so excited for the rest of the season and seeing what this team can do as I’m sure so many others are as well. An announcement tomorrow will just top off a great first week of football and set our sporting year up for an amazing goodbye to the Big 12-2-1.

I would do a writeup on the game and go in to detail about the good and bad of our game Sunday, but I’m a little late getting to it with the holiday weekend and half way attempting to get caught up on work this morning and if you haven’t found a better one online by now well, you should.

On another note, I’ve done some remodeling around here as I’m sure you noticed if you’ve been here before. One addition I’ve made is that I’ve added a Media Page for pictures I’ve taken or images/videos/gifs I make. I added some of the pictures I took from Sundays SMU game to get it started for now. I also hope to get a page up for the wallpapers I make as well as a roster and schedules pages, but those will all come in time.

So thanks for stopping by and hopefully the next time I get something posted it will be as a proud fan of the newest SEC team. SECede!

It’s Gameday In College Station Again!

Posted on: September 4th, 2011 by SECAG No Comments

As it is gameday and all, I’m heading to College Station this fine September morning to join the 12th Man in cheering our Texas Aggie Football team. This is the final opener of our Big 12-2-1 stay and this season looks to be a great one.

I should have more on the game and the big week that is surely ahead of us as we officially make our SEC move, but for now, here is SMU’s roster and the first week depth chart for your Fightin’ Texas Aggies.

OU Rumors Picking Up

Posted on: September 3rd, 2011 by SECAG 2 Comments

Here on the eve of the greatest day of the year – College Football Day – rumors have started to spread that Oklahoma University is starting to shop around for a new conference of their own.

David Boren, the President of OU, has been widely reported as having said, “The Big 12 is not the same Big 12, I was extremely disappointed when Nebraska departed. Disappointed when Colorado departed.” The future of the Big 12-2-1 is clearly looking bleak, which could be a great thing for us Aggies. With no conference to pay, we could be able to jump to the SEC free and clear of the hefty exit fees that many have projected.

Mr. Boren has also set up a fairly quick time frame for any move or announcements to be made by OU, saying, “My experience is that, in these kinds of things, it might be a matter of 72 hours, it might be a matter of two weeks, I don’t really think this is something that’s going to linger on beyond two or three weeks, from the outside.”

This is some big news from the giant that has been lurking in the shadows of TU, and should be a very interesting story to watch unfold in the next couple of weeks as we may be finally seeing the crumbling of the Big 12.

For more of what Mr. Boren had to say…Boren on Big 12, OU’s future in it.

Dearest Kyle Field

Posted on: August 30th, 2011 by BB_05 No Comments

Dearest Kyle Field,

Please, have a seat. You had a helluva run, old chap. But you’re very Big 12. We’ll try to be careful not to disturb the Revs and overall idea of you, but we’ve made the executive decision to go on and put you out to pasture.

If it makes you feel any better, we’re buying the largest football stadium in college football. You heard me right, the largest in the game. So please know that ONLY the biggest and baddest mf’er purchaseable under the sun is what did you in.

But the cash cow needs a new barn. And your barn is stinky and maxes out at 90 thou. Haha. 90 thou. That was nice when we lived on a Big 12 budget and we couldn’t rely on visitor ticket sales to even make a dent in the light bill. WE HAD TO PLAY IOWA STATE AT 2:30pm BC WE COULDN’T PAY THE LIGHT BILL!!

The SEC demands the best. And we’re simply not interested in going to the SEC to be middle of the pack. We’re far too wealthy and richly resourced for that bullshit. Matter of fact, starting next week, we’ll be restocking the tp in the Bright Complex with stacks of hundos. And Ol Sarge is replacing the stars and bars on his chest with gold nuggets. Just badass, plump gold Nuggets.

It’s been said that the SEC is an arms race. Well consider this our first third arm purchase. And it’s gonna be a motherfucker.

We wanna have this conversation with recruits:

“Hi Texas A&M, I am 4 star stud XYZ from Houston, can I please play football 1.5 hours from my house, in the SEC, in the largest college football stadium on Earth (112,000 seats), and win you Championships?”

“Well, as much as we’d love to offer everyone, our class has already been filled with 25 5 star SEC studs. We’d love to have you try out for the 12Th Man Kickoff Team as a preferred walkon though!”

“Done, coach. Thank you for the opportunity to compete for a position on the Fightin Texas Aggie team. Signed in blood. Maroon Blood. Kyle Field at Von Miller Stadium, here I come!!!”

Kyle, you’ve been great to us for so long, old man. You’ve seen em win and you only saw em quit under Fran a couple times. But the Aggie faithful won’t have a place to nestle in the sweet graces your holy bosom without this change. The SEC is going to find a way to weasel their way in through the sacred gates one way or another. They’re already buying up hotel rooms at the Ramada on Texas for 2012. They’ve got dinner reservations at Blue Baker! I PROMISE, we are only making space for the additional Aggie fans and 5 star recruit’s parents viewing boxes at Kyle Field.

It’s been great, Kyle. We’ll never forget the way you rocked. So hard. So very hard.


Thanks for the Welcome SEC – From new blogger BB_05

Dear SEC,

Just stop it already. I don’t wanna hear about how glad you are to have The Texas Aggies in your conference. I’m sick of seeing your guest names on my websites. I Hate you. I don’t need your historical citations of conference brotherhood. I don’t care that we let you have a couple of our coaches. And I don’t want you posting SEC SEC SEC! on my facebook wall.

You think I’m starting this relationship off on the wrong foot?? False. I’m starting it off on the right foot. With more unimaginable hate than your feeble brain can calculate.

This is what I know to be true, quantifiable, empirical, irrevocable FACT: NO ONE LOVES THE TEXAS AGGIES. In the history of the world, no man has ever loved the Aggies that loves another school. “No man can serve two masters.” -The Bible.

And we’ve worked for decades to position ourselves like that and maintain said position.

You don’t respect me or my brothers. You see me as an opportunity, not a challenge. You don’t see majestic Maroon, you see greed green. You think just because you bought a month’s worth of our TexAgs that you can just come on in bang my wife? And now you think I’m just gonna let you into TEXAS and bang my recruits too?? Well, fuck you.

I don’t want to callabo hate for the sips with you, bc you don’t hate the sips like I do. I buried the greatest Aggie I’ve ever known last year on a t.u. pennant, because the guy hated the sips so intensely. Blind hatred, gentlemen. A man who well into his 80s couldn’t look a horn in the eye because he knew they were vile and untrustworthy. Hell, you probably own something in your house that is some shade of orange? Ha! No, no, you don’t hate sips like I do.

Some Razorback cock wrinkle had the audacity to proclaim yesterday that after the hate on the field, he likes to drink and eat with the other SEC teams and party. Well, I don’t want an invite. I’m not going to Baton Rouge to have a beignet and wax nostalgic about the time they fucked with our bank roll. I’m not gonna draw some blurred parallel between Auburn and myself, because we’re both products of a land grant Agriculture and Mechanical Colleges. They’re not like me. They work for me.

I’m not going to Gainesville to take a picture with Tim Tebow. And I’m not gonna spell words like “Tibeaux”, because that shit doesn’t make phonetic sense to me. I’m a Texas man, goddammit. With tha sausage, and the fried eggs, and the T-bone steaks.

We, The Texas Aggies are gonna grace whatever Conference WE decide will benefit US the most. We’re 100 MILLION cockstrong, rabid, bloodthirsty fans. With loaded wallets and vacation days abundant.

If the Aggies are playin on the moon, you bet your sweet ass, we’re comin too. Even if the moon signed the #1 class in the nation and we’re 100 pt. dogs. We’re buyin the officially licensed bowl shirts, before the game, and Carter Beauford is gonna lead Yell Practice from the Aitken Basin.

I hate that you conned us into Fran. I hate that you got Championships out of Coach Bryant. I hate Schula Steak Houses. I hate croakies, I hate boat shoes, and I hate North Face. I’m gonna make a mess in all your bars, talk loudly, flex my ripped Aggie guns, and feed your women from the flow of my loins.

So you can cool it will the wolf in sheep’s clothing act. You and everyone of your patronizing SEC pals.

We’re not coming to your league to drink beer with you. We’re coming to your league to kick your asses and then steal your beer and then pour it out and drink Lone Star.

Yeah. It’s like this and like that, motherfuckers,



All’s Quiet on the Eastern Front

Posted on: August 17th, 2011 by SECAG No Comments

There was very little rumors or information flying around the internet yesterday, so not much new to look at or think about at this point beyond all the same information.  I’m not even sure how to take this quiet except to hope that it means the work is being done and the two sides are being great about keeping all information in house for a change.  I’m still very hopeful and excited to hear when the announcement is made.

In the mean time to fill time I made myself a new schedule screensaver for our last season in the Big 12/10/9 and am posting it here in case any of you would like it as well.  For now the the only size I’ve made is 1920×1200.  If you would like a new size or even have change suggestions, let me know and I’ll get others put up as well.
