While the official word isn't in on whether Texas A&M will leave the Big 12 for the SEC, the city of Bryan/College Station and the A&M campus is already SEC bound ready for what, they hope, is to come.
The talk was all football at The Tap in College Station Tuesday afternoon. Jimmy Owen, Class of 1969, eats and listens to the sports guys of The Zone twice a week and loves anything and everything maroon and white.
"As Aggies, we feel like we can compete with anyone, we know we won't win them all right at first," said Owen.
"I've never seen anything like it as far as the Texas A&M fan base is concerned the excitement level," said Billy Liucci, of TexAgs.com.
Liucci writes and talks Texas A&M everyday, joined now with everyone who joins the blogs and message boards to give their input on the next step. The unified message...let's go!
"I've never seen A&M fans more united in their feelings on any one subject ever, whether it is a coach being hired, a coach being fired, which quarterback should play, whether A&M can beat Texas in this sport or that sport, I have never seen the fan base more united on anything."
"We've got the budget, we've got the facilities, we've got the student body size. We're definitely built like an SEC school, just give us a couple years and we'll be at the top, I don't doubt it at all," said Sam Huffines, Class of 2014.
"I just love being an Aggie and I think everyone is on the same page, like Coach Sherman said we're all in the same boat we all love A&M and we support them win or lose," said Owen.
