Texas Legislature, Governor May Sit This Round Out

1

When the SWC dissolved and the Big 12 formed, the Texas State Legislature and governor's office had their fingerprints all over it. It's sounding a bit different this time. State representatives John Smithee and Joe Heflin, both Texas Tech grads, predict that the TSL won't get involved because the political climate has changed in the last 16 years. The governor's office also released a statement saying that, "Decisions about conferences should be made by the individual institutions." If Texas A&M was going to break away from Texas and Texas Tech to come to the SEC, this news is exactly the sort of thing we'd need to hear. Then again, these are politicians who are talking, so bear that in mind when listening to them. I still am not convinced that Texas and Texas A&M want to be split up, but if they did, they'd need a hands-off TSL to make it happen.
