Folks it is time to find College Station on the map. As of today, the SEC has accepted Texas A&M as its 13th member. Commissioner Mike Slive says that the league is “optimistic” that Texas A&M will join the league next season, suggesting that plans for a potential lawsuit by Baylor will not derail the decision.
