Today, Gene Stallings is holding court in College Station. Once he has finished taking on all challengers to his supremacy via 12 rounds of bare-knuckle boxing he will make a successful motion for AnM to leave the Big 12. Then AnM will be I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T, do you know what dat mean?
Well it means that the SEC doesn't want to have to pit it's Seersucker Clad, Bow Tie Wearing, low-drawl having lawyers against Texas' 10-gallon hat, bolo tie, turquoise jewelry wearing lawyers. In a classic case of "well if you were satisfying her then she wouldn't be callin' me all the time" the Brand doesn't want to get sued for tortious third party interference with the execution of a contract. Although we are pretty sure that no one has actually "seen" the tv contract except for Big 12 Commish, Beebe, "No for real guys....for real...no joke....they are really gonna pay us.....I promise."~Beebe.
Once AnM quits going back to Texas because "He really does love me and what about the kids?" Then we will be more than happy to hook-up. While I am not crazy about the idea of expansion AnM does actually fit the SEC. See exhibit A:
