The End is Here: Texas A&M formally announces it's leaving the Big 12.

The beginning of Aggiegeddon is as official as it can get. Texas A&M has informed the Big 12 that it wants to jump ship.

"Texas A&M has notified the Big 12 that it plans to apply for membership to a new conference, and if accepted, it will end its membership with the Big 12 on June 30, 2012.
The announcement comes after conversations between Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin and SEC commissioner Mike Slive that began on July 21, the day after a meeting of the Texas A&M board of regents."

By now the announcement is pretty much anti-climatic. Everyone knows what was going to happen, and what will happen next with Texas A&M and the SEC. The only real question is how messy it's going to get.
