Twitter reaction to Texas A&M leaving the Big 12
Ah, Twitter world. You knew I wouldn’t forget about you, right?
Once the news came down this morning that Texas A&M is officially planning to leave the Big 12, I threw out three questions on Twitter:
What is your reaction?
What does this mean for the Big 12?
What does this mean for OSU?
Here’s a sample of some of the responses I got. Some are insightful. Some are hilarious. Some are very opinionated.
Heck, even Boone Pickens threw out his thoughts on Twitter, saying “In 5 yrs I think it will be apparent the #Aggies made a bad call on this. #Big12 #SEC.”
Jstobbe: Pac-10 here we come. and it’s all #UT’s fault. (I think he means Pac-12, but no matter)
BSargentOKC: A&M football won’t be competitive in the SEC. OK State and OU need to go west and join the Pac-12. Big 12 is now doomed.
ScKing: We all knew that last year’s realignment meant the end to the Big 12 soon. Just not this soon. BYU doesn’t fix any problems.
andrewOKST: For me it gives everyone in the league even more incentive to whoop A&M’s…bottom this year.
RobertWhetsell: A&M…have fun getting pounded in the SEC! Hello Pac 16.
krginn: Have fun being the 9th best football team in the SEC. OkState needs to pack up and head to the PAC 12 with OU, Texas & Texas Tech.
dougbranstetter: hate to see them go, but Boone Pickens has ensured we are relevant and will be a player in any conference realignment. #thankboone
KBNOKC: Both OU and OSU need to be aggressive and not sit back and just follow Texas’ lead.
