Texas A&M President Tweets Welcome For South Carolina Rivalry
This Twitter confirmation follows South Carolina's president saying that he thought A&M and South Carolina would be future rivals. But this Tweet is more definitive than previous comments.
Asked to comment on the A&M president's Twitter message and whether this meant the 6-1-1 was a go for 2013 and beyond, the SEC declined to comment for now.
Welcome to the SEC, R. Bowen Loftin, thanks for breaking SEC football news on Twitter. You just gained a follower.
This means that Missouri and Arkansas will become permanent cross-division rivals as well.
The rest of the SEC rivalries will remain the same.
Meanwhile two other games that no one really cares about will also continue to take place on a yearly basis.

But even this makes sense because these four schools are happier playing each other every year than adding a tougher rotating league game.
The only real question that remains is how frequenly will the other division games rotate? Here's a guess that home and homes are a thing of the past -- because then playing the entire cylcle would take 12 years. Instead each SEC team will probably play one game against an opponent so that the rotation through the entire division will take six years.
Meanwhile what are your thoughts on A&M and South Carolina, Missouri and Arkansas?
I actually like these match-ups much better.
Meanwhile, I'm now following a college president on Twitter for the first time.
So that's nice.
