High ranking source at Texas A&M confirms, going to SEC.Clemson,FSU,Missouri likely to join.— Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) August 13, 2011
Per the generally reliable Doug Gottlieb. I'm posting this from the road, so no extra analysis right now, but first thoughts: this is pretty big from a revenue loss standpoint.

Hopefully, the ACC can hold things together, or perhaps expand by picking up some of the more appealing Big East schools (Syracuse, anyone?). Otherwise ... help me out, Jim Delaney.
