I hate to admit it, but the word "divorce" sums up Texas A&M's departure from the Big 12 perfectly.

Baylor women's basketball head coach Kim Mulkey was right on the money when comparing the Aggies leaving the conference to that of a complete separation and divorce from the highly competitive Big 12.

"If a man wants to divorce me and says our relationship has no value to him, and then he asks me if he can sleep with me, the answer is, 'No,'" Mulkey told numerous news outlets. "We're not going to play them any more because they decided that playing us was not important to them."

Take it or leave it, Aggies; kiss those hundred years of history goodbye.

With Baylor, with Texas, with Tech and others.

Leaving the best conference in college football for the second-best conference can be considered reasonable.

But it's also like dropping the prom queen for the runner-up.

Good luck next year in the SEC, A&M.

It took a long time and a lot of blood, sweat and tears to rise the Baylor Bears from the conference grave in Big 12 play.

And if you thought the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners were tough, just wait until you face the likes of Alabama and LSU.
