Big Blue Nation Linkapalooza: Aggies To SEC Edition

So the sudden big news around the college football world is that Texas A&M is apparently considering coming on over to the SEC.  This really isn't new, of course -- Word on the street was that during last year's conference realignment, they were considering a jump to the SEC but decided against it.

What got all this frenzy started was this comment from Texas governor Rick Perry:

Asked by The Dallas Morning News' statehouse reporters Wednesday about speculation that A&M might bolt the Big 12 for the SEC, Perry responded: "I'll be real honest with you. I just read about it the same time as y'all did. … As far as I know, conversations are being had. That's frankly all I know. I just refer you to the university and the decision makers over there."

I don't think this constitutes "confirmation" of anything.  He claims to "know" about conversations, but won't tell us if the conversations included him, or just filtered down to him, or who the conversations were among.  Stay tuned.
