Will the Big XII Miss Texas A&M?

If you attend a Big XII school, you are likely saying “of course not” to answer the question posed in the title.  However, the question wasn’t “Will Baylor (or fill in your school name here) miss Texas A&M?” but rather will the Big XII — the conference as a whole — miss Texas A&M.

To miss a school, that school should have made a contribution to the whole.  Did A&M pull its weight in the Big XII athletic conference?  Let’s take a look…

Conference Championships

Baseball  1998, 1999, 2007, 2008, 2010*, 2011

Women’s Basketball 2007, 2008, 2010

Equestrian 2011

Football 1997, 1998, 2010

Women’s Golf 1998, 2006, 2007, 2010

Men’s Golf 2012

Women’s Soccer 1997*, 2001, 2002, 2004*, 2005*, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011

Softball 2005, 2008*

Women’s Swimming & Diving 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012

Men’s Tennis 2000, 2001*, 2011

Womn’s Tennis 2003, 2004

Men’s Indoor Track & Field  2011, 2012

Women’s Indoor Track & Field 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012

Men’s Outdoor Track & Field 2001, 2011

Women’s Outdoor Track & Field 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011

National Exposure

Men’s Basketball  6 NCAA tournament appearances

Women’s Basketball  2011 National Champions

Equestrian 2012 Western National Champions

Equestrian 2012 Overall National Champions

Men’s Golf 2009 National Champions

Men’s Outdoor Track 2009, 2010, 2011 National Champions

Women’s Outdoor Track 2009, 2010, 2011 National Champions

In fact, Texas A&M has 10 National Championships since 2009.  All other Big XII schools have 5 combined national titles in the same time period, so the Aggies beat the other teams in the conference 2 to 1.

Yes, Texas A&M will be missed.  To think otherwise ignores the facts.
