Loftin Video on Big 12 Move Released by A&M

Texas A&M's president is providing some more insight into the current conference realignment talks involving the Aggies.

In a video released by the university, R. Bowen Loftin discusses why A&M is moving towards a departure from the Big 12. He says the main reason is gaining national visibility for A&M.

Loftin says academic budgets could be enhanced with additional funding gained by a move, presumably to the SEC.

He gave no timeline for a move, and repeated his stance that the Aggies are willing to play the Texas Longhorns every year at any place and time the sides can agree on.

The complete video is embedded below.
