Well, well, well.
Here we are again. A little more than a year after losing one of the Big 12's best programs and its fanbase, the stakes for the conference look much the same.
Texas governor Rick Perry, a Texas A&M alum, says he understands that Texas A&M and the SEC are talking
. Perry's the first public figure to acknowledge what had been rumored for weeks, if not longer.
The Big 12's future, as A&M president R. Bowen Loftin stated last month, is uncertain.
But make no mistake, the Big 12 needs Texas A&M for the same reason the SEC wants it.
