Texas A&M to the SEC expansion silliness starting to get "serious?"

The level of seriousness to the "Texas A&M to the SEC" meme is increasing to at least DEFCOM 3 (People somewhat actually involved with the situation are talking openly) levels. Big XII Conference commissioner Dan Beebe says that he's taking the stories of Texas A&M officials talking with the SEC "very seriously."

"I've been doing that and dealing with this firestorm at the same time," Beebe said. "I'll put it this way, I'm taking it very seriously. I've been talking to a number of people. Obviously, there are a significant number of Aggie supporters who are interested in going in that direction."

Translation: There is enough concern for Beebe to monitor the situation with a higher level of scrutiny than usual, but not enough where he is busily updating his resume. While it looks like the talk is just talk, it does seem like Texas A&M is more ready to actually tell the Big XII "Hasta la bye-bye," and not just threaten to do it.
