    For those of you SEC homers that have never been to College Station or even those that have are forgetting a few things...its still Aggieland...the recruit that is contemplating going there is NOT considering going to UT (Austin), they might be thinking Starkville (Miss) or Lubbock (Texas Tech) or even Stillwater (OkState)..Aggies think that they are escaping the shadow of the Forty Acres by going to the SEC, but all they did was open up the SEC to some of the talent that was once their domain...

    Back in the day before scholarships were limited, power schools like UT, Oklahoma,Alabama and LSU could have hidden many players that would have started anywhere else with the lure of NC rings and glory.....but nowadays recruiters are turning the tables and telling the recruit would you rather sit on the bench at Power U or start right away with us...smaller and less traditional powerhouses are able to field better teams and are a star QB away from running the table and playing in a BCS bowl

    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.
    A&M needs to focus on playing MORE than the first half of every game. Just like last year. Gotta be tough for the fans always seeing your team get up on teams just to watch them game after game give it way in the 2nd half. It'd be like watching the Saints back in the day

    I think I'm confused as to what exactly you're trying to say. To me, the simple fact is that playing in the SEC is more alluring than playing in any other conference in the nation just because the SEC is the best conference in the nation. A recruit might play elsewhere and get more playing time/notice, etc., and that may work out well for them in the long run. There are still going to be a large number of recruits who want to play in the best conference in the nation. Now that TAMU and Mizzou are in that conference, they have that much more ammo for their recruiters. That was my only point.

    p.s. I've been to College Station. Cool place, good people, but they don't party like we do

    Bon, if you think the SEC doesn't recruit Texas you haven't been checking SEC rosters. Where were Chizik and Muschamp offensive coordinators? LSU and Arkansas have always recruited Texas even back to the Southwest Conference days and Alabama recruits nationally. I don't think joining the SEC hurts A&M's crcruiting I think it helps it. The recruiting loser may well be UT as the SEC skims off even more talent, but then Mac will get to have his coveted private conference.....

    new players, new coaches, new systems, different opponents, you cannot compare these guys to the tesm with the spare who was the head coach last year

    Even if UT plays themselves 12 times in their own private conference, they'll still go 6-6

    Chizik and Muschamp were the Defensive Coordinators...everybody raids the talent in Texas...Barry Switzer taught them that when he was at Oklahoma...Texas may get hurt by SEC recruiting..lets see we lost Ryan Perilloux to LSU, John Brantley to Florida, ..I can live with that...but you know as well as anyone that those that are going to A&M don't even look at going to UT...Texas has to worry about Stoops coming across the Red River and taking talent back with him...Mack Brown doesnt want a private conference, cant say the same for the AD DeLoss Dodds, first the LHN and then who knows what he wants...

    I know that A&M going to the SEC makes it a more prestigious/desirable coaching position

    Not to play too much of the opposing side here, but I actually had two friends from Houston who were very torn between TAMU and UT. One went to UT, the other to TAMU. Not athletes, but the point still stands.
