There is lots of Texas high school talent going to the SEC, now TAMU will have a shot at keeping some of them home. If you were a hotshot high school football player would you rather play Arkansas, LSU, Alabama, and Auburn or Kansas, Iowa State, and Baylor?
    I wouldn't sell TAMU short as they can be a top tier team in the SEC. Just look at all the Football talent that lives in the Houston area that goes to the SEC! Add TAMU's rich traditions and student support and you can't lose. Just wish they would have beaten Florida on Saturday.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    TAMU will be good, but it'll take a few years to get a solid recruiting base there. We get a lot of those prospects at LSU, and we're gonna lose a lot now since TAMU can coerce them to stay in state and still play in the SEC.

    We get a frighteningly large amount of athletes (in all sports) from Texas at LSU. I'm a first year at LSU Law now, and was here all through undergrad as well. The requirements that UT Austin puts on its incoming freshmen are insane. It's something crazy...like only the top 10% of graduating seniors are even considered to admission into UT Austin. So, a lot of those athletes that can't get into UT Austin come over here to LSU. Now, TAMU has an awesome recruiting pitch. "Come to TAMU, where you can stay in state and still play in the SEC!" = mucho prospects. They're gonna leech from Oklahoma and Oklahoma State too. This will also free up a lot of their endowment used for athletic scholarships, because they're not having to cover the cost of out of state tuition. I think TAMU is gonna be pretty scary in 5-6 years. Until then though, God help them hah. Especially with LSU being their "rivalry game."

    I'm still questionable on how good the teams will do in the SEC. I mean Arkansas moved into the SEC in the early 90's and still have yet to win a sec championship. They have been competitive every few years or so.
    If TAMU or Mizz. want to be competitive they better embrace that it's a defensive league and focus on tightening up that aspect of their game. I do look forward to watching them play, it's always good to get new members with different style play. I think is was good moves for the teams and the SEC.
