Texas A&M To SEC Rumors Continue: Texas Politician Seems To Pump The Brakes

It's beginning to feel a lot like deja vu in the conference realignment extravaganza of 2011. In fact, it's felt like deja vu all along, but many of the same maneuvers we saw in 2010 are happening again. Now, it's the Texas lawmakers' turns to jump into the fray and weigh-in, with at least one requesting the legislature be given a chance to probe the conference realignment implication.

One question still remains: Does Texas A&M even have an offer? According to Rep. Dan Branch, the answer seems to be unclear, though he's under the impression no offer has been made yet.

“It is not my understanding that they are meeting to complete or accept an offer to the SEC if one’s extended. To finalize such an action before giving legislators a chance to ask some questions would be inappropriate, highly inappropriate.”

Branch adds that he doesn't believe the Aggies hold an offer as of now, based upon his own conversations with officials.

Again, it all could simply be posturing, and we've seen these sentiments before. With the way the rumor mill is churning, nobody is quite sure what's going on or when it will happen, but it appears A&M could be SEC-bound as soon as next week. Unless, of course, plans change last-minute, which is always a possibility.

Keep an eye on SEC expansion chatter over at Team Speed Kills and SB Nation Atlanta.
