Joking Aggie

Sec Media Days

When a reporter began asking Texas A&M Coach Jimbo Fisher about a report in the Houston Chronicle that Texas and Oklahoma had expressed interest in joining the SEC, Fisher cut in. “I bet they would,” Fisher said, eliciting laughter. “We’ve got the greatest league in ball.” Texas A&M Athletic Director Ross Bjork said SEC athletic directors had not discussed expansion and that the Aggies would not be in favor of it. “We want to be the only SEC team from the state of Texas,” Bjork told “There’s a reason why Texas A&M left the Big 12, to be stand-alone and have our own identity. That’s our feeling.”
