I think the move is about being more competitve on the football field which is very important because of the revenue Football delivers to universities.
When you look at how the SEC players dominate the early rounds of the NFL draft, the athletes with an eye towards the NFL lean towards the SEC. All of which will help T A&M. No doubt it will help them recuit within the state and put them on an even playing field with U of Texas.
I had heard the Mizzou was going to stay put.
On a side note, I don't think there is any chance that the coaches poll will vote LSU and Bama as #1 and #2 for political reasons.
