Will Baylor Delay Texas A&M’s Departure to the SEC?

In the latest chapter of Texas A&M’s “It’s not you it’s me……I swear” break up with the Big 12, Baylor University may be playing the role of the fat or ugly chick at the club.

Every red blooded male knows what I’m talking about.  It’s 1:47 A.M, and the bartender has announced it’s last call.  The lights come on, and it’s fight or flight.  The girl you’ve been macking on since 12:25 A.M. hasn’t slapped, maced (don’t judge) you, or left yet.

And then it happens.  Before you have a chance to go in for the kill, 196 pounds of bitchy female steps in and says, ‘not tonight loverboy.’  She then accuses you of taking advantage of her friend and they vanish into the night like D.B. Cooper into the cold Oregon sky.

This is what we refer to in the field as the ‘cock block.’

Essentially Baylor is ‘c blocking’ the Texas Aggies from going to the SEC.  Last night the member presidents of the SEC voted unanimously to accept Texas A&M as the leagues thirteenth member.

The SEC’s presidents and chancellors want assurances that no individual Big 12 school will sue for contractual interference over Texas A&M’s departure before accepting the Aggies into the conference. According to multiple sources, Baylor has not given that assurance.

The good news for Texas A&M is that there is precedence for this nonsense.  In 2003 five Big East schools unsuccessfully sued Miami and Boston College for bolting to the ACC.

Fear not Aggie fans, this is just another hurdle on the way to the promised land!  If the Jews could wander in the desert for 40 years, then Texas A&M can wait a few more months.
