I am not a fan of ATM (at all) but I wouldn't call them an ugly chick.
At the end of the day A&M has a national title ring and 18 conference championships, 7 in the past three decades (same as Texas).
Are they the number one program out there? no. But they have a very good football history and a huge alumni base and following that all but a few of the elite schools would envy. Oh and PS they sit near one of the best recruiting areas in the country.
I still think they get their ticket punched and land in the SEC. This denial was about the SEC avoiding legal penalties associated with offering a school that is already in a Conference.
ATM's BOR just adjourned and granted their President full power to pursue Conference options.
I would expect ATM to formally apply in the next few weeks.
