If you're a fan of Texas A&M or enjoy reading about the ever-changing landscape of collegiate athletics, this book is a must have.
"R. Bowen Loftin's manuscript The 100-Year Decision: Texas A&M and the SEC is the perfect addition to the SEC's ongoing story, and it's a doozy," wrote veteran, Alabama-based SEC reporter/columnist Christopher Walsh, who is also the author of nineteen books. "To begin with, most college football fans probably have no clue that [Loftin] may be the reason why the landscape of the game, in terms of conferences and affiliations, shook out the way it did. Thankfully, he doesn't hold back with his firsthand account of how University of Texas officials not only took both he and A&M for granted, but essentially tried to strong-arm its rival into something that wasn't in the school's best interest. That alone makes the book essentially a must-read for serious college football fans."
