Expansion Silliness: Aggiegeddon moved up to August 15th?

If you're bracing for the possibility of Aggiegeddon - the potential move of Texas A&M to the SEC- on August 22, then you might have to speed up the stocking of your fallout shelter mancave. The Texas A&M Board of Regents are rescheduling a meeting to have been held on that date to next Monday the 15th of August.

"On the agenda, listed as the final topic before the meeting adjourns: "Authorization for the President to Take All Actions Relating to Texas A&M University's Athletic Conference Alignment, The Texas A&M University System."

The Texas state House of Representatives' The Higher Education Committee is scheduled to be holding hearings on the subject of The Aggies' possible defection from the Big XII to the SEC (Like there aren't literally dozens of more important issues involving Higher Education in Texas than Aggie football to be holding hearings on).The moving up of the Texas A&M Board of Regents could be seen as trying to make a run around those in the Legislature who might be dead set against TAMU and Texas being in two separate conferences.
