Those aren't fake cadet uniforms. Only cadets at Texas A&M wear them, not "non-regs" as those not in the Corps of Cadets are called. Lest we forget, A&M was once all military. I was there in the transition years.
Texas A&M fans are ready to pull their hair out… if they have any left. Everyone continues to say all the right things about the Aggies eventually joining the SEC, but until the deal is done and Mike Slive accepts the school unconditionally, it’s still limbo-time in College Station. (As we wait to see just how Kenneth Starr can go.)
Well, at least the talk coming from A&M brass is positive. Former Aggie football coach and current special advisor to the school’s president RC Slocum told an Arkansas touchdown club yesterday that all signs still point to an A&M-SEC marriage:
“In my own opinion, I don’t think there’s anything (that could change the thinking at A&M). I think we’re committed with what we want to do. Everything I know, the SEC, I don’t see them waffling on anything they’ve indicated… I don’t think there’s any turning back now. And I don’t think you can make us.”
During a Q&A session, former Arkansas AD Frank Broyles addressed Slocum: “I’ve said for the last 10 years I would crawl to Texas to get you all in the SEC. We benefit more than anybody with (A&M) coming to the SEC.”
Whenever that finally, officially occurs.
