Something tells me Rice University has a problem with Texas A&M leaving the Big 12 to join the powerhouse SEC. Nothing is official just yet, but all signs point to the Aggies moving on in 2012. Naturally, money is the driving force behind the change. Why shouldn’t it be? Perhaps it was all in good fun, but have a look at the shot Rice’s Marching Owl Band took at Texas A&M during halftime of their game with Texas on Saturday night:
I’ll admit it’s a pretty clever bit, but if I were Texas A&M, I wouldn’t be offended. This isn’t like a player leaving his team in free agency to go to a huge rival. Schools are supposed to bring in as much money as possible, and moving to the SEC will land Texas A&M more exposure which will lead to more money — even if they get smacked around for a while.
