A&M thinks they are not respected enough, how in the world do they think they will get more attention in the SEC? Newsflash - SEC is only using you to get Texas recruits... So, the getting more respect theory is a load of crap. It's all about the money and the really bad path A&M Athletic officials continue to lead the Aggies down. First you build a monstrosity to block the view of our beloved Reveilles (and trust me, the freshman seating has a better view!). Then you demolish every rivalry... even the one your fight song is written about. Will Bill Byrne rewrite the fight song too? Where are the old school Ags - how is this being allowed to happen?
TCU has been in a weak conference and played hardly anybody (but has wins against notable teams)... and they are ranked in the top ten at the end of each season. A&M is still on one year, off the next... poor Aggies. Clearly, the Big XII got the better deal! Just compare their post-SWC Bowl Game records and final rankings!
Since the end of the SWC, the Aggies have posted four top 25 final rankings. TCU has posted eight - four of which are top 10 final rankings! Bowl game wins also shine on TCU - Aggies are 1-9 since the SWC disbanded and TCU is 8-4 (and two of those were BCS Bowls)! Last year TCU went undefeated! Since 2005, TCU has the best record of all FBS teams in Texas.
Now let's look at all-time win percentages against the SEC and their new conferences:
A&M against SEC TCU against Big XII
58-79-6 (31%) 157-223-24 (39%)
TCU against SEC
So, cry baby Aggies - or I want a National Championship TCU?
