Expansion Silliness: Texas Governor Rick Perry says Texas A&M and SEC are talking.

Usually any bit of  Texas A&M going to the SEC expansion silliness falls into "the voices in your head don't count as reliable sources" file. But this time, the story is coming from at least a somewhat credible source. That being the Governor of Texas (and possible GOP presidential candidate) Rick Perry.

"Texas governor Rick Perry says his alma mater, Texas A&M, and the SEC are discussing the Aggies possible future membership in the league, according to a report in the Dallas Morning News. 

Perry was asked by reporters from the paper on Wednesday about recent swirling speculation surrounding the move. 

"I'll be real honest with you. I just read about it the same time as y'all did. ... As far as I know, conversations are being had. That's frankly all I know. I just refer you to the university and the decision makers over there."

Perry was a former male cheerleader yell leader at Texas A&M. Whether or not this means the Texas Governor knows something we don't is unknown.
