A&M wastes no time moving on from the Big 12

Texas A&M sure didn't waste much time reminiscing about all the memories it's had during its 18 years in the Big 12.

Once Texas A&M agreed to a $12.41 million buyout to get out of the Big 12 and officially join the SEC, the Aggies slowly started erasing the Big 12 from memory by removing signage with the Big 12 logo - and tweeting the words, "out with the old" to go along with the above picture.

Forget the fact that the school still has to finish its basketball seasons and its spring sports in the Big 12. The Big 12 is very much in Texas A&M's rear view. The Aggies are just finishing the year because they're contractually obligated to. If the university had been able to allow their spring sports to play in the SEC this year, I'm sure Texas A&M would have done it.

Can't blame Texas A&M for their excitement. Even Missouri started putting up SEC-themed billboards before the buyout was completed. And it can't be long until the SEC signage starts going up on all of the game fields. Might make Big 12 baseball games interesting.

Thanks for the memories A&M.
